From Goodreads:
Sookie Stackhouse likes living in Bon Temps, Louisiana, and she likes working as a cocktail waitress at Merlotte's. But she is having a streak of bad luck. First her co-worker is killed, and no one seems to care. Then she comes face-to-face with a beastly creature which gives her a painful and poisonous lashing. Enter the vampires, who graciously suck the poison from her veins (like they didn't enjoy it).

The point is: the vampires saved her life. So when one of her bloodsuckers asks for a favour, she obliges-and soon Sookie's in Dallas, using her telepathic skills to search for a missing vampire. She's supposed to interview certain humans involved, but she makes one condition: the vampires must promise to behave, and let the humans go unharmed. But that's easier than done, and all it takes is one delicious blonde and one small mistake for thing sto turn deadly...

I really liked this book, however i didn't find it as good as the first.

It follows Sookie, a telepath, who along with her vampire boyfriend Bill is taken to Dallas to use her talents to find a missing vampire. The Fellowship of the Sun, the vampire-hating church comes into play and a lot of action goes down.

I really loved Sookie so much more in this book. She is definitely not your typical heroine just waiting around for the male characters to save her. She totally takes control of ever sticky situation she finds herself in, and you can clearly see her individual personality not just an accessory of the guy like so many other books have.
Bill really started to annoy me in this book, he is so possessive and treats Sookie as a possession he has rather than his girlfriend who he is in love with.

I really didn't like this one as much as the first, i think because i saw the second series of the TV show first and i really couldn't help comparing the two, and that kind of took my focus away from the book a little bit and made me enjoy it a little less.
However, i still find that this book was absolutely amazing and i can't wait to find out where this series will lead to.
