About the author

Biography of Harris, Charlaine

Charlaine Harris was born in Tunica, Mississippi on November 25, 1951. She attended Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee. She wrote poetry and plays before beginning to publish mysteries set in the American South. The first book in her Aurora Teagarden series, Real Murders, was nominated in 1990 for an Agatha Award for Best Novel. She also writes the Lily Bard series, the Harper Connelly series, and the Sookie Stackhouse series.

In 2001, the first book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, Dead until Dark, won an Anthony Award for Best Paperback Mystery. The series was adapted as a TV show on HBO called True Blood. The final novel in the Sookie Stackhouse Series, entitled Dead Ever After, was named to the New York Times bestseller list in 2013.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2011-04-15)

Sookie Stackhouse, the telepathic barmaid, is one of the more famous protagonists of best-selling urban fantasy, in good company with Harry Dresden (Jim Butcher), Rachel Morgan (Kim Harris on), and Mercy Thompson (Patricia Briggs.) In this eagerly awaited 11th series title, Harris returns to her quick-wit style that was slightly toned down and almost missing in books nine and ten (Dead and Gone and Dead in the Family, respectively). Sookie, as always, finds herself in a runaround among vampires, various were creatures, and her family of fae, and Harris is happy to amp up the danger and mysteries in which Sookie often finds herself mixed up.

Questions are answered about the fae, something many readers have been looking for, especially those who have been watching the companion television show, True Blood. Old characters and new fill the pages, and the ending hints at changes that might be coming, without feeling incomplete.

Verdict: Obviously a must-have for public libraries that already have the Sookie series so far, this title will circulate, so purchase multiple copies.
