All Together Dead by Charlaine Harris

This is the 7th in the Sookie Stackhouse series.

Sookie has been hired by the vampire queen of her area, Sophie-Anne Leclerq, to go to the U.S. Vampire summit. Sophie wants Sookie to use her "gift" to read the humans minds and let Sophie know if business deals are good or if Sophie-Anne is in trouble. The queen will also be going to trial for the death of her husband and Sookie is the only witness to what happened.

Nobody wants Sookie to go. Many believe there will be problems. However, Sookie knows she can't back out. Once she gets to the summit, she meets Barry. Barry the Bellboy showed up briefly in a previous book. He is the only other telepath that Sookie has met. It seems Barry is working for one of the other vampire kings.

While at the summit, Sookie realizes that something is wrong. She feels like something is going to go wrong, but she hasn't been able to figure out exactly who is behind it and what is going to happen.

Many things happen while at the summit, but I'm not going to say anything else. I don't want to ruin it for anybody!

I wasn't planning on reading this book right now, I like to spread out these books because I enjoy them so much. However, after watching the seasion premier of True Blood, I just couldn't help myself. Haha!

And for a little info on True Blood….here's what I'm hearing. Some have mentioned that it is darker than the books, others that the story line is kinda slow, still others that it reminds them of soft porn. What do I have to say about all these comments? True, true, and true. I think it does appear a bit darker than the books, but I think humor comes through more in the books and that makes it lighter. As for the story line…I think if you are familiar with the books, the story line will move along fine, if you don't know the books, it probably does seem slow. As for the soft porn – well – sex sells on tv so I'm sure that is why they are putting it in there. Sure, sex is in the books, but I do think it's more graphic on the show. I'm still enjoying the series. I think its fun to see the characters come to life. I have the series set up to record on my DVR and will continue to watch it.

Have you reviewed this book on your blog? If so, let me know and I'll link it below.

I really love this series. This book is one of my earlier reviews so it's not great but I found some good videos.
