All together dead
Charlaine Harris
Adult Fiction HARRIS

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Bestseller Harris mixes humorous Southern-fried fantasy with biting satirical commentary in her seventh novel to feature Sookie Stackhouse, the bubbly telepathic barmaid from Bon Temps, La. (after 2006's Definitely Dead). Sookie attends an all-important central U.S. vamp summit on the shores of Lake Michigan as a "human geiger counter" for Sophie-Anne Leclerq, vampire queen of a Louisiana weakened by Katrina and who will be tried during the event for murdering her king. Sookie knows the queen is innocent, but she's hardly prepared for other shocking murders, not to mention protests by the Fellowship of the Sun, a right-wing antivampire movement. Her sleuthing skills, along with those of her new telepath friend, Barry the Bellboy, are put to the extreme test. Harris juggles a large cast, including several romantic contenders for Sookie's heart, with effortless exuberance. HBO's True Blood, based on this addictive series, is scheduled to begin its TV run this fall. 11-city author tour. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Sookie Stackhouse, the telepathic barmaid from Bon Temps, LA, returns in Harris's (Definitely Dead) seventh mystery, a strange brew of vampire fantasy (weretigers beside werewolves!), romantic comedy, and murder. Sookie uses her telepathic powers to assist the Queen of Louisiana in fighting a murder charge that surfaces at a vampire summit on the shores of Lake Michigan. Titled True Blood for HBO, the series is scheduled for broadcast this fall. But narrator Johanna Parker just can't do justice to the large cast of characters, with male voices particularly poorly rendered. Purchase where demand for Sookie warrants.-Sandy Glover, Camas P.L., WA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
