The Southern Vampire Mysteries

If you are a fan of the True Blood TV series then you will definitely love the Sookie Stackhouse series of books that the series is based on. This collection of books, also known as the Southern Vampire Mysteries were written by a resident of Mississippi and her name is Charlaine Harris.

About Charlaine Harris

Ms Harris started writing short stories while she was a student at RhodesCollege in Memphis, Tennessee. She had a few successes and was even short listed for Best Novel for an Agatha Christie Award.

About The Sookie Stackhouse Series

The first of the Sookie Stackhouse books was written in the early part of 2000. The books centre on the life of a true Southern Belle called Sookie. She lives in a fictional place called Bon Temp which is situated in Northern Louisiana. She works as a waitress in the town’s main watering hole.

She is a very interesting character because of one particular trait that she possesses. She is a telepath. This means that she is able to hear people’s thoughts. Whatever they are thinking or whatever they are feeling, Sookie has the ability to tune into their minds and know their every thought. This ability has made her a little bit of an outcast with some people because they think that she is more than a little strange.

Sookie has decided to share the knowledge of her particular skill with very few people. Only her family and her closest friends know about it.

Charlaine Harris has created a place where the supernatural is all around. This is a time and a place where humans share the earth with all sorts of supernatural creatures. This includes vampires, shapeshifters and werewolves among other things.

The Sookie Stackhouse Box Set consists of the following 8 book titles:

  • Dead Until Dark
  • Living Dead in Dallas
  • Club Dead
  • Dead to the World
  • Dead as a Doornail
  • Definitely Dead
  • All Together Dead

The Popularity Of Vampire Stories

At the moment there is a huge popularity for all things vampire.  We can see this in the amazing success of The Twilight Collection of books by Stephenie Meyers. These books were made into very successful movies and have made stars of the actors as well as the author.

If you are looking for more books within this same style then these Sookie Stackhouse books are a fantastic way to get your fix.  These books have helped to not only create but to also enhance the urban fantasy genre due to the fact that these novels evolve around the every day life of a person with special powers. 

There are several different books in the Sookie Stackhouse series and each book can be read as an individual self contained story.  However you can now purchase a box set collection which would be perfect as a gift idea for any occasion.
