I just finished the eight book in the Sookie Stackhouse series known officially as the Southern Vampire Chronicles by Charlaine Harris, and thought I’d give a general overview of the whole series.

If you are over 18 and into vampires, you might have come across HBO’s racy True Blood series. The series is based on the Southern Vampire Chronicles by Charlaine Harris, the first of which is called Dead Until Dark.

The first book combines the genres of romance, mystery/suspense, and fantasy into one delicious package. I have to admit this series is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. This book series is no Twilight though, these vampires are very racy and not for the under 18’s.

The surprising thing about this series is that it really reflects the southern culture. Harris’s descriptions of the South make you feel like a local.

The first book is about vampires but werewolves, fairies, witches, and other supernatural beings soon make appearances.

I would recommend this book to adult women who love vampires.
