Summary
Chronicles the backwoods Louisiana town of Bon Temps, where vampires have emerged from the coffin and no longer require humans for their fix. The small town boasts a wide array of colorful locals, including Sookie Stackhouse, a sweet and innocent waitress who hides her powerful ability to read minds; Bill Compton, a 173 year-old vampire who's just moved back to town; Sookie's brother Jason, a ladies' man who can't seem to stay out of trouble; Tough-as-nails Tara, Sookie's loyal best friend; Sam, the owner of Merlotte's who tries to keep his feelings for Sookie to himself; and Lafayette, a man about town who's always cooking up something illicit. Join this quirky cast of characters who each hide their dark secrets in the shadows of night, and discover if modern vampires still enjoy a fresh human now and again
