A Touch of Dead(The Southern Vampire Mysteries)
Every Sookie Stackhouse short story ever written — in one special volume — from the New York Times bestselling author.
New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris has re-imagined the supernatural world with her “spunky” (Tampa Tribune) Southern Vampire novels starring telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse. Now, for the first time, here is every Sookie Stackhouse short story ever written — together in one volume.
Stories include “Fairy Dust,” “One Word Answer,” “Dracula Night,” “Lucky,” and “Giftwrap.”
Ok, I cheated - only read the three short stories I hadn't read before.
Fairy dust - it was nice to get to know a bit more of Claude and Claudine.
Dracula night - read from Many bloody returns, didn't care much about this one.
One word answer - in which I finally found out what happened to Hadley. I think it was very poorly explained in the Definitely dead. Ok.
Lucky - Sookie and Amanda play detectives. Nothing special here. I think the way the vampire Dustin was handled was poor. We are reading this because we like vampire literature, right? And then he was just whisked away and never heard again. (Correct me if he shows up in the books at some point, but I can't remember.)
Gift wrap - Sookie gets a Christmas gift from fairy grandpa. Already read this from Wolfsbane and mistletoe. I wonder what Sookie was thinking in this one? She has been thinking about herself as a good girl who doesn't sleep with strangers...
