The nice thing is this is the complete collection of short stories, but the downside is there is nothing new in here at all if you were a hardcore fan and read every anthology that had Sookie stories in them. Even saying that it was nice to read them all again. Each story does have a small intro and she does give a bit of heads up of when she tipped her hand for the Soookie/Sam relationship. If you haven’t read the books then this isn’t a good place to start since there will be tons of spoilers but it was a nice trip down memory lane with a favorite read.

I absolutely loved this book and this series! I got involved with this series before True Blood became a show and I couldn't quit reading. I ended up getting all caught up and then had to wait each year for the next to come out until Harris finally reached the end of the series (I was devastated and wanted more Sookie Stackhouse in my life). It's been nearly 10 years since I read the first one and probably getting close to time for a re-read! ( )

Well this was just a little disappointing. These were very short stories that could have just been added to the books themselves. The one that was absolutely necessary to a story line (so far) was One Word Answer, because it gives us all of the detail on Hadley's death that is essential to that book. Also the last story, Gift Wrap was just odd. I think maybe her great grandfather had good intentions, but to bribe a fairy to sleep with her for Christmas? Who does that? . ( )

An incredibly fast read, read it in an afternoon. I liked that it answered some questions that I had with vagueness or discrepancy in the actual novels. I don't feel like the stories were written as well as the actual series but they were still entertaining. ( )

It was a nice revisit to many of the beloved characters from the Stackhouse series. Obviously some are better than others but overall a nice, quick read. ( )
