Dead Until Dark

by Charlaine Harris

Added by: D. Summerfiel...



Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana, but she keeps to herself and doesn't date much because of her "disability" to read minds. When she meets Bill, Sookie can't hear a word he's thinking. He's the type of guy she's waited for all of her life, but he has a disability, too--he's a vampire with a bad reputation. When one of Sookie's coworkers is killed, she fears she's next.

I looked up; his glowing face was expressionless, his eyes pits of blackness in the dark woods. "Did you fight in the War?" "Yes." "I have the feeling you're gonna get mad. But it would make her and her club so happy if you'd tell them a little bit about the War, about what it was really like." "Club?" "She belongs to Descendants of the Glorious Dead." "Glorious dead."

"They have their own picture of the War, and though they're not stupid people--they've lived through other wars--they would like to know more about the way people lived then, and uniforms and troop movements." "Clean things." I took a deep breath....

"But he's strong, and he'll do what I tell him, and he'll make sure no one breaks into your house. " "He'll stay out in the woods?" "Oh, yes, " Bill said emphatically. "He's not even supposed to come up and speak to you. At dark, he'll just find a place from which he can see the house, and he'll watch all night. " I'd have to remember to close my blinds.
