If you haven't read any of the Sookie Stackhouse books (which I haven't), don't worry about spoilers in this one. It mostly references the HBO series with some nods to differences in the books.

This book reminded me of a college honors paper I wrote about nature symbolism in literature so I was totally into it. If you're a fan of the tv series and want to know more about symbolism (like why Eric Northman is a trickster and why he's the opposite of Bill Compton the Southern gentleman) then you should pick up this book.

It's accessible and provides plenty of resources if you want to explore some of the related mythology, read interviews with the cast members, etc. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615857809, Paperback)

True Blood is more than just an HBO show brimming with sex and gore, or another vampire horror story blown up by big media. Independent detective Sookie Stackhouse is following the classic heroine’s journey, seen in epic myth and popular fantasy, from the quests of Isis and Demeter to the struggles of Dorothy Gale or Katniss Everdeen. Beside her, Sam, Jason, Alcide, Eric, and Bill, along with Pam, Tara, and Jessica embark on their own epic quests into darkness seeking freedom and belonging. From the show’s mythic structure to the maenads, fairies, demonesses, werewolves, and vampires, True Blood swells from its ancient roots to tackle modern issues and sensibilities in a breathtaking epic…while still breaking taboos and tackling boundaries.
