Series: Sookie Stackhouse (short stories collection)

Synopsis: New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris has re-imagined the supernatural world with her Southern Vampire novels starring telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse. Now, for the first time, here is every Sookie Stackhouse short story ever written—together in one volume. Stories include “Fairy Dust,” “One Word Answer,” “Dracula Night,” “Lucky,” and “Giftwrap.”

Review: Five short stories featuring the characters of the Sookie Stackhouse series. The stories are ~ Fairy Dust: Sookie helps Claude and Claudine find out how Claudette died. Dracula Night: Sookie is invited to Fangtasia for a party to celebrate the birthday of Dracula. One Word Answer: Sookie is informed of Hadley's demise. Lucky: Sookie and Amelia need to find out who's sabotaging the town's insurance agents. Gift Wrap: Sookie gets an unexpected christmas gift. Each of the short stories are set at different points throughout the main series, but are in chronological order in the book.

Sadly this wasn't as good as I was expecting, but it was still really nice to read something new from the Sookie universe. Of the five stories, my favourite by far was Dracula Night, I thought Eric was being his usual hilarious self, and that made it much better than the other stories. My least favourite was Gift Wrap, I thought the premise behind the whole thing was just creepy and rather disgusting! I thought Lucky was pretty boring and pointless, and the same with One Word Answer, but I quite enjoyed Fairy Dust, as I like the characters of Claudine and Claude and so it's always nice to read about them. Overall, this is a nice interlude whilst waiting for the next novel in the series, but is nowhere near as good as the series books.
