Vampires, witches, werewolves, fairies, and every other creature you can fathom. Harris introduces lots of characters and follows through with great character development nearly every single time. I seriously could not put this book down. Before you know it, I'm on the tenth book in the series. Worth reading!
Love blossoms between Sookie Stackhouse, a cocktail waitress in rural Louisiana who keeps to herself because of her ability to read minds, and Bill, a tall, dark, and handsome vampire with ties to a creepy crowd that may be responsible for the death of one of Sookie's coworkers.
