What are the True Blood books about
If you are a fan of the tv series then there is no need for us to explain what this series is about. But in case you have never watched True Blood on HBO then you must know that this series is set on an alternate Earth in which vampires, wolves, and other fictional creatures exist.
The Sookie Stackhouse books center on the character by the same name, a young girl who works in a bar and that will eventually discover that she is a telepath.
For fans of the HBO series, know that True Blood only resembles the Southern Vampire Mysteries books in the first three seasons. After this, the tv series plot is different from Charlaine Harry’s books. Which may be a good or a bad thing, depending on what you expect from the novels. If you take this as a way to discover a new adventure for Sookie, then it’s an amazing chance for you.
A warning about the last book in our list, After Dead, this is a sequel to the events in the Sookie Stackhouse series. Lots of readers seem to be disappointed with the content of the book, both because the novel is quite short for such a price and also because of how the story ends for the main characters of this series according to this novel. We just wanted you to know this before you decided to get it or not.
