Sookie Stackhouse Book Series
A series of three posts examining Bill and Eric’s sexual behaviour towards Sookie. Based on dialogue from the novels and Harris’ construction of both character’s respective sex scenes (written after Dead and Gone – stay tuned for an update).
What is the nature of the relationship between Eric Northman and Niall Brigant? Does this relationship cast Eric in a deceptive light, and can we find evidence in earlier books to support the background of this relationship as it was laid out in Dead Reckoning? Time to hit the books and find out.
Sookie’s Dead Reckoning
Our advance review of Dead Reckoning – virginal and uncontaminated by the fandom meltdown that followed its release in May 2011.
Serena’s two part post speculating on the implications of Eric’s political lesson in Dead in the Family for Sookie, her relationship with Eric, and his possible future as King of Louisiana.

Looking to brush up on Season 3 and 4? MAS recaps every episode with her sharp eye and trademark snark. Part recap, part prediction, part speculation…and always hilarious.
Ever get the feeling that this show is trying to tell you something, but you just can’t put your finger on it? Read this, and “True Blood – A Love Story” for a quick demo on how the writers use minor characters and plotlines to illuminate the story arc of the main characters.
So you know by now that True Blood is anything but a romantic love story, right? Franklin Mott and Bill have alot in common – and the fact that they dated best friends Sookie and Tara is the very least of it. What does Franklin and Tara’s story tell us about Bill and Sookie? Quite alot, as it happens. Be sure to duck from the foreshadowing bat.
What does Bill know about Sookie’s magic blood? And more importantly….when did he know it?
