This was better than the first shockingly enough. I thought it was going to be hard for the author to make the second book as interesting as the first as she was now mostly building on characters instead of introducing fresh new ones but wow… she surpassed herself.
Sookie is even more likeable in this book and you can’t help but love her. Bill is once again an instantly attractive character, as is Eric though somewhat more dangerous. Bringing Sookie out of her comfort zone to Dallas was genius and the scenes with the vampire nest governed by the scary Stan were brilliant. The introduction of other supernatural creatures such as more shapeshifters and the maenad was also a high point of the book. Clearly she’s building this up for bigger things in future books.
Living Dead in Dallas has just the right amount of blood, sex and violence!! I loved it!
