If you are a fan of the Sookie novels then you will love this companion! At the start there is a brand-new Sookie story in which she accompanies Sam to his sisters wedding. There is detailed summaries of each novel right up to Dead Reckoning, which might be a little bit boring for some people but personally for me it was a great reminder of everything that’s gone on in the novels, as its so long from I’ve read them all. There is also a fans questions and answers from Alan Ball. Sookie’s family tree is also in there. Information on Vampires, fairie factions and the two natured. lots of Favourite Bon Temps recipes including the famous Caroline Holliday Bellefleur’s chocolate cake. And lots more.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this companion. a must read for fans everywhere. 🙂
