BEST CHARLAIN SCHULZ BOOKS

The prolific Charlain Schulz has written many excellent novels over her 30-year long career. However three of her most highly regarded titles are:

Dead Until Dark: The debut novel in the Sookie Stackhouse Mystery series, the novel is one of the best Charlain ever wrote. Sookie Stackhouse The chief protagonist in the novel is a small time cocktail waitress in a backwater town in Louisiana. While she is very pretty, she is a loner and does not go out much. She has a weird gift that makes it difficult for her to date – she can read minds. But everything changes when she meets the tall dark and handsome Bill, whose mind she cannot read – just the type of guy she has been waiting to meet. But Bill is not your ordinary handsome guy, he happens to a vampire with quite the reputation. His friends are all creepy types, suspected of some of the most vile murders in town. The plot thickens when one of Sookie’s work colleagues turns up dead and she fears that she just may be next.

Dead to the World: The fourth novel of the Sookie Stackhouse series is a novel full of intrigue. Sookie is a cocktail waitress in Bon Temps, Louisiana. Her only options for a date are limited to vampires and the undead, whose minds she cannot read. Given her limited choices, it is just natural that she would be incredibly drawn to a naked vampire she spots lying on the side of the road. Stopping to help the sexy, scary stranger who seems to have lost his sense of identity, Sookie believes that she may just have found her soul mate. Scary though he may be, being the undead, his amnesia makes him vulnerable, sweet, and very dependent on Sookie, which is just perfect for the lovesick waitress.

All Together Dead: The seventh novel of the Sookie Stackhouse series of novels is one full of hair-raising twists and turns. Sookie Stackhouse finds herself dealing with all manner of paranormal and undead creatures you could ever imagine. After her long time vampire lover deserted her, she now has to face up to the demands of a new relationship with her new love, Quinn the shape shifter, and deal with the trepidation of attending a vampire convention. The summit is quite a dangerous affair with the vampire queen’s base decimated by hurricane damage to her home city of New Orleans. With all out catastrophe and anarchy looming, Sookie may have to make a choice between the clutch of vampires out for chaos and those with the vampire queen trying to rebuild her base.
