Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris
Publisher: Recorded Books
Release Date: 2008
Sookie Stackhouse and her boyfriend, vampire Bill Compton, have broken up and leaves town on business. While Bill is away, Sookie discovers the leader of the vampires, Eric Northam, walking around in a daze and not having any of his memory. She decides to act as his protector and watch over him. Sookie lets him live with her, but she never expects it to be anything more than friendship.
To make things even more complicated, there’s a reward to anyone who finds Eric. Her brother Jason is ready to cash in on that money, but before he can, he mysteriously disappears. Sookie fears he has been kidnapped by witches and could be lying dead in a ditch somewhere. Not getting any help from the local police – they are convinced he has run off with one of his women – Sookie sets out to rescue her brother herself.
As Sookie fights all sorts of magical demons from shape shifters to werewolves to even a few vampires, she can’t fight her attraction to Eric any longer. Will Sookie give in to her feelings or is this all an act on Eric’s part?
Another great Sookie book and I absolutely love listening to them on audio. They really are a lot of fun and listening to the audio in the car is so relaxing. These are helping me fill the time until the next season of True Blood in the summer. Although by the time I’m done with these books, I won’t be able to separate the books from the TV show.
