Dead to the world

This book, DEAD TO THE WORLD (c2004, ACE, ISBN 0-441-01218-3), by Charlaine Harris, is the fourth book in the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series.

The first sentence:

I found the note taped to my door when I got home from work.

I adore these books which is quite ironic because they are more "cozy" than "gritty", and I typically prefer the grime and the grit.

In this book, we are revisited by some oldies but definitely goodies (and I do mean goodies! Woo Hoo!) and introduced to some new supernatural beings as well.

To be honest, her books sat on Mount TBR for the longest time because I had read all of the Anita Blake books by Laurell K. Hamilton and I wasn't sure that I would enjoy them as much. I was wrong! (Sorry, Charlaine!)

If you are looking for a fun and refreshing series about people that aren't quite like everyone else around you, check these out!

At least try the first one. They are out of this world!
