Sookie is just your average 25-year-old barmaid in small town Louisiana, except for one thing--she's telepathic. This, of course, complicates her life. Most people don't acknowledge her "gift" and just think she's crazy. Being telepathic has certainly made dating almost impossible for Sookie, until she meets a vampire named Bill. She can't read his mind at all, which is a joyous relief. Unfortunately, women in the area begin to turn up dead, and Bill and Sookie's brother are the prime suspects. Sookie soon learns that being a vampire's girlfriend can add many complications to life. Is this budding romance worth the risk?
I have heard many good things about the Sookie Stackhouse novels, and I can see why. Sookie's perspective is unique, and I'd like to see how this character develops.
