I love the Southern Vampire Series by Charlaine Harris. Sookie Stackhouse is the main character of the series and she is one funny lady. Charlaine Harris is a very good author and I love her books but I only have her Sookie Stackhouser a.k.a. the Southern Vampire Series but she has other books and another series that she writes and which I’ve heard are really good. So far there are 8 published books in the series but the 9th book in the series called Dead and Gone is coming out on Tuesday, May 5. I’ve read the first 7 books before it became it hit HBO TV series called True Blood and though I don’t have HBO I’ve seen the first episode of the show at a friends house. I thought it was pretty good but you know how things are when they turn a book into a movie or TV show. It’s not the same but at least you have a visual of each character so when you read the books again or read future books in the series you have an idea of what each character looks like.
All Together Dead is one very interesting book that I really enjoyed reading because I could see that Sookie and so other important secondary characters from the previous 6 books have really developed into complex characters. Sookie has really changed since the first book and it really shows with they way she thinks and reacts to all the supernatural and regular problems that go on in this novel. Being surrounded by all varieties of undead, changeling, and preternatural beings has gotten to be nothing out of the ordinary for Louisiana cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse. Still, even she has her limits and I wouldn’t blame her if she up and decides to leave everything behind and start a new life with a new name somewhere else. Betrayed by her longtime first vampire love, Sookie must now not only deal with a possible new man in her life—the oh-so-handsome were-bengal tiger Quinn—but also contend with the long-planned vampire summit in Rhodes. Now that is a twist that I really liked about this book because it brings together all these vamps and were-animals and other preternatural beings together for a big meeting.
The summit, which has attracted undead power players from all over the central U.S., is sure to be a tense situation. Well I could almost feel the tension while reading this book and it was GREAT! It was also exciting to see how Sookie is around all these supernatural creatures gathered for a summit that she would rather be anywhere else. The vampire queen of Louisiana is in a precarious position, her power base weakened by hurricane damage to New Orleans and there are some vamps who would like to finish what nature started. I don’t like the vamp queen of Louisiana because her and her guard Andre are a real threat to Sookie’s life. They are very manipulative about Sookie’s powers and the debt that she owes the vampires for saving her life a couple of times. But with secret alliances and backroom deals the order of the day—and night—Sookie must decide what side she’ll stand with because not all of the sides are good for her life. And her choice may mean the difference between survival and all-out catastrophe that was such a joy to read. By the end of this novel I could tell that Sookie wasn’t the same naive cocktail waitress we all knew in the first book Dead Until Dark and that is both a bit sad but it is also a change to be expected. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
ALL TOGETHER DEAD $ 24.95 (Book 7)(323 Pages)(also in mass market paperback for $ 7.99)

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
