But she is gone, beyond recall, and she's left Sookie an inheritance - one that comes with a bit of a risk - not least because someone doesn't want Sookie digging too deep into Hadley's past - or her possessions.
Sookie's life is once again on the line, and this time the suspects range from the rogue werewolves who have rejected Sookie as a friend of the pack to her first love, the vampire Bill. Sookie's got a lot to do if she's going to keep herself alive.

Everything I read I remember, everything I hear I remember...
So as you can imagine I will consume a book and move on never to return, this series of books however are the only ones I have gone back through multiple times. This is because the characters are so intricately designed they become real, the story lines while based in fantasy from the off never fail to surprise and thoroughly delight. I have never had such an all round almost tactile experience from something that I've read to make me come back to them so often and with that first time read anticipation it's nuts because I remember every word already.
They are utterly hilarious, full of blood-pumping action and downright hot in equal measure with so many more facets that will have you also coming back time and again.
The books do not copy the T.V. Show plot line they are completely different the anchors for both being the familiarity of the main characters but both being superb in their own ways.
A definite BUY IT NOW! you certainly will not regret it.
Sookie goes from one bad situation to the next; attracting the kind of attention she could really do without. In this instalment of her story she really shows her strengths and is rewarded with a little insight into why trouble keeps landing on her lap. Another excellent vampire and shifter action novel with plenty of secrets in the closet ready to burst out and bite her.
After reading the books and watching the HBO series, listening to Sookie's drama filled life is awesome, I always have a smile on my face, great light hearted listening for those who love a good story. Truly addictive!
The only negative is the length of the books are quite short and as there are so many in the series I am finding that my credits are going fast. I have had to buy plenty of extra credits this month in order to fulfil my fix. Good job there has been lots of special offers.
I would recommend any of the Stackhouse series obviously listened to in the correct order.
True southern accent the way Sookie should sound.
Prepare for a vampire addiction.
Purchase the series immediately.
Having seen the True Blood series on TV I thought the books may be good. Well Im bowled over. The books are fabulous, really well written and Im on tenterhooks at every turn. I have bought 8 in the series and count down the days till I can get my next one. All the audiobooks area read by Johanna Parker and she is really excellent and conveys all the emotions so you can live the story with her. She has a great Southern accent really bringing the books to life. I can't recommend these any higher.
This book is very entertaining and I could not stop until I had read the whole book. I loved the mix of characters and the plot of the book. You can listen to the book whilst basking in the sun in the park or whilst taking a walk. Absolutely beautiful.
"A HUGE fan of this series :)"
I'm a Huge fan of this exciting seriers and While I found the previous book, Dead as a Doornail a little less memorable than the first 4 books for some reason, Definitely Dead picked right back up full steam and left me craving more. If you're a fan of the series, you've probably already read this one and so I don't have to tell you how it left me craving more. I'm sure you know exactly what I mean. If however, you haven't yet read this series, then what are you waiting for.......
"Definately read it!"
Though not my favourite, this is definately a must. I really like this one especially because we're (finally!) introduced to many new characters (my favourite are Amelia and Quinn). As in Club Dead, there's a lot of action and there's romance. And poor Sookie learns something about Bill she'd rather forgot.
Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.
Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.
I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.
"I love the Sookie Stackhouse Series!"
I love everything Charlaine Harris does and this is no exception! What a great listen! Thoroughly enjoyable and of course snaps to the narrator who, as always, does a fantastic job!
"Another great edition to the story so far"
This series is my favorite of my books. It keeps you wanting more and more. A definite must read for all Vampire fans. Just excellent and the Narrator is excellent.
