Sookie comes to the rescue of a naked, amnesiac vampire - and ends up in the middle of a war between witches, werewolves and vampires! Sookie Stackhouse is a small-town cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She's pretty. She does her job well. She keeps to herself - she has only a few close friends, because not everyone appreciates Sookie's gift: she can read minds. That's not exactly every man's idea of date bait - unless they're undead - vampires and the like can be tough to read. And that's just the kind of guy Sookie's been looking for.
Maybe that's why, when she comes across a naked vampire on the way home from work, she doesn't just drive on by. He hasn't got a clue who he is, but Sookie has: Eric looks just as scary and sexy - and dead - as the day she met him. But now he has amnesia, he's sweet, vulnerable, and in need of Sookie's help - because whoever took his memory now wants his life.
Sookie's investigation into what's going on leads her straight into a dangerous battle between witches, vampires and werewolves. But there could be even greater danger - to Sookie's heart, because the kinder, gentler Eric is very hard to resist.

Good fun stuff

I can't help but enjoy these. Love Sookie's quirky ways and her honest dialogue. I find myself walking down the street and grinning as Sookie conveys her thoughts in her unique style. Good fun stuff - hardly literary genious, but 4 books read, and I'm about to download the fifth in the series. Just wish they were all bundled together so the story would be more cost effective!

Go Sookie!

Sookie is still reeling from her betrayal by Bill and is therefore a little vulnerable at the moment. Bill has been sent away on business and she is left alone. On her way home from work she comes across a naked Eric who is running towards her house. Stunned she takes him in and what follows is a wonderfully entertaining story of how, why and what to do about this situation as Eric dosen't seem to know who he is. On top of this Jason has also disappeared. I already own all the books but this one was one of my favourites and thought it would be great to have it on audio, I wasn't disappointed - the narration is wonderful she gets the 'voice' of Sookie just how I imagined her.

See my review for Dead as a Doornail

What did you love best about Dead to the World?

That I turned it off.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead to the World?

None in the audiobook. The narrator detracted from it too much.

How could the performance have been better?

Oh yes. She is a great narrator as long as she isn't trying to do men with accents...or men. Or even southern women.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?


Any additional comments?

Loved It

Any additional comments?

Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.

Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.

I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Happy Reading
