Book Review of Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse, Bk 1)

Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse, Bk 1)

Unlike most humans, Sookie Stackhouse can read peoples minds. And having supernatural ability like hers attracts other supernatural beings, like Bill, who is a vampire. Sookie is very attracted to Bill, and he is attracted to her. As their relationship blossoms, deaths begin to surround Sookie and Bill Many think the murderer is a vampire.

I completely understand the magnetic pull to this series. Sookie is an interesting, almost-normal character with an ability she doesnt want. Bill is an awkward, blood-thirsty vampire. Like Bill, I thought his relationship with Sookie was strange. I could not understand why they felt the need for each other, but that feeling wore off as I kept reading and accepted their relationship ... sort of.

This is not a teenage vampire romance. So if you are looking for another Twilight, this may not be for you. There are adult situations and I would recommend no one under 16 read.
