From Dead to Worse is book eight in the Southern Vampire Mysteries series and is published on 5th May 2008 in the US and 19th June in the UK.
Betrayed by her longtime vampire love, and with a new man – a shapeshifter – in her life, Sookie’s got quite enough to deal with without having to contend with the latest supernatural surprise . . .
Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in a little bar in a small town deep in Louisiana. She’s funny and pretty and well-mannered, but she doesn’t have that many close friends – mind you, that’s not so surprising when you consider how few people can appreciate her abilities as a mind-reader. It’s not a quality that has the guys beating down her door – well, unless they’re vampires or werewolves or the like . . . but they’re not just supernatural freaks, some of them are friends, even family . . .
And much as Sookie might want a quiet life, when she’s around, things just seem to happen . . .
Sookie’s finally beginning to get getting used to being surrounded by all varieties of undead, changeling, shapeshifting and other supernatural beings – but even she has her limits. She’d really like to take a while to get over being betrayed by Bill, her long-time vampire lover, and get used to her new relationship with the sexy shapeshifter Quinn – but it seems life has other plans for her . . . !
Drawn into a new supernatural mystery, and once again up against impossible odds, Sookie may have her work cut out for her.
