Four books into the Sookie Stackhouse series, I'm finally willing to admit I'm getting hooked. That's not entirely stubbornness or snobbery talking; only with this one and it's predecessor, Club Dead did I read the books in a hurry. Plus, I liked that Harris thanked a librarian, Doris Ann Norris, in her acknowledgments page.
Dead to the World introduces bad witches and good Wiccans to Sookie's world of magical creatures. She also has a new love interest--an old vampire with amnesia, who had been trying unsuccessfully to get into her pants since he met her.
There's also a scene that cracked me up involving said vamp getting the giggles watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
