Review: Living Dead in Dallas (Sookie Stackhouse #2) by Charlaine Harris

I read the first Sookie Stackhouse book simply out of curiosity (I've read the Twilight Saga and the House of Night series). I didn't expect to like the second book. I am happy to say that I really enjoyed it. I think I enjoyed Living Dead in Dallas even more than the first. It has more action, which definitely adds to its entertainment factor. Sookie and Bill are summoned to Dallas so Sookie can use her telepathic gift to find a kidnapped vampire. We are introduced to another group of vampires, as well as a church of sorts whose human members want to bring vampires to "meet the sun." Sookie is also needed back at home to help solve a friend's murder. In Living Dead in Dallas, Sookie's character is developing, and she's really starting to grow on me! I'm hooked.

See, I didn't care for this book in the series. I really enjoyed book 1. This second book seemed like it had less action for me, it dragged on, and I had unanswered questions at the end. But then I read book 3 and I fell back in love with the series again.

There seem to be a few negative reviews of this book going around, but I really liked it too!

I was already looking forward to reading Club Dead, but after reading some reviews that say it is a lot better than Living Dead in Dallas, I am looking forward to it even more!
