Sookie has a gift: she can read minds. She considers her telepathy a disability because many of the townspeople consider her crazy. She doesn’t date much because of her gift (or curse). She stays with her grandmother, and works at a bar called Merlotte’s. Her life is routine until Bill Compton steps into the bar one night, a vampire more than a century old. The events of the night take an unexpected turn for the worst for the vampire. Sookie rescues him from a couple who are trying to drain him for his blood to sell on the black market. So begins her story. Filled with southern charm, humor, and mystery, this book is the first in the Sookie Stackhouse series.
