After Dead: What Came Next in the World of Sookie Stackhouse
by Charlaine Harris
Expected Publication October 29th, 2013
About the book:
Dead Ever After marked the end of the Sookie Stackhouse novels—a series that garnered millions of fans and spawned the hit HBO television show True Blood. It also stoked a hunger that will never die…a hunger to know what happened next.
With characters arranged alphabetically—from the Ancient Pythoness to Bethany Zanelli—bestselling author Charlaine Harris takes fans into the future of their favorite residents of Bon Temps and environs. You’ll learn how Michele and Jason’s marriage fared, what happened to Sookie’s cousin Hunter, and whether Tara and JB’s twins grew up to be solid citizens.
This coda provides the answers to your lingering questions—including details of Sookie’s own happily-ever-after…
The book will feature extensive interior art by acclaimed Sookie artist Lisa Desimini, including a Sookieverse Alphabet, color endpapers, and several full-page black and white interior illustrations.
Why am I waiting?
No, I don’t have my copy of Dead Ever After yet. I’m just waiting until I get to Target. But I was trolling Amazon and I stumbled on this book. Did I love the last few Sookie books? Eh, not so much the direction they took. But do I still read them? Hell, yeah! I’m invested in Sookie and I love her voice!
Everyone stop picking on Ms. Harris – if you don’t like the books, just don’t read them and move on. Me? I’ll go live in Sookie’s world as much as I can and tell you all about it.
What are you waiting for?
