Loved by A Vampire – The Initiation
Loved by A Vampire – The Act

Mr High-Handed and the Fairy Prince – Pt I
Mr High-Handed and the Fairy Prince – Pt II

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.

True Blood

MASpencer’s True Blood Recaps

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.

Just Sayin’ – The Rattray Beating

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.

True Blood – A Love Story

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.

Just Sayin’ – What Did Bill Know?

What does Bill know about Sookie’s magic blood? And more importantly….when did he know it?

Just Sayin’ – What Did Eric Know?

Sam and Eric make a deal – how did Eric find out about Bill getting his blood into Sookie “on the night they met”? [written pre-season 3]

Meet Your Maker

A tale of two families – Bill’s and Eric’s. What do their “family” relationships tell us about their characters? [written pre-season 3]

    I am so grateful for these outlines. I’m sure everyone will find this helpful as we prepare for TB season 4 as well as book 11 and the companion book. Before we know it we will be overwhelmed with new material to mentally digest. It’s a great time to study. Oftentimes I miss out on a previous discussion thread only to review the recent one, you ladies and gents have spread out much wisdom and vexation. I have gained much insight as well as realised my thoughts reflected in many posts here. “Here” is is good place to be.

    Blog is the best –I may have missed something –but will there be recaps of Season 5? Usually it’s on the “Home” page. Are they anywhere else and I’m just stupid? :-)
    Thanks! Pat

      No, Pat, you haven’t missed anything. The blog no longer reports on True Blood, and the fabulous MASpencer has retired from the recap business. There are still discussion threads about TB in the forum, if you’re so inclined.
