Psychic Sookie Stackhouse has her hands full with an amnesiac vampire in the fourth seductive novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series—the inspiration for the HBO® original series True Blood.

When cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse sees a naked man on the side of the road, she doesn’t just drive on by. Turns out the poor thing hasn’t a clue who he is, but Sookie does. It’s the vampire Eric Northman—but now he’s a kinder, gentler Eric. And a scared Eric, because whoever took his memory now wants his life.

Sookie’s investigation into why leads straight into a dangerous battle among witches, vampires, and werewolves. But a greater danger could be to Sookie’s heart—because the kinder, gentler Eric is very difficult to resist...


  • Soooooo good.

    I enjoyed this book immensely. Thrilling.
  • Definitely the best!!!!

    By Postalchick
    This was in my opinion the best book in the series so far, I read them all, and I'm sad to see it go down the toilet after the last book, but can't denied this one was the best.
  • The best Sookie book!

    By Ms.Gamble
    This is my favorite book of the series. Love first eight, nine was good, ten was weird, and then haven't been convinced reading the remainder two will do anything other than convince me the series is dead. If you want some sexy Eric action and some adult Twilight-level swoon/butterflies romance, this is your book. I have read it several times and the shower scene never gets old!
  • Best in the series

    By MsDeeRay
    This is my fave. I couldn't put it down, more so than the others.
  • Oh So Juicy!

    By Eric's Love Slave
    This book is my favorite of the series. The way Charlaine describes Sookie & Eric's love making session in the shower gets me worked up every time! This is the best book series, with the BEST male character of all time! Eric Northman the 1000 year old Viking/Vampire who is every woman's fantasy! Thank you Charlaine!!!!!

  • Simply the Best

    By Docwgk
    Though I have read and enjoyed all the books in the Southern Vampire series, Dead to the World is simply the best!

    The dynamic chemistry between Sookie & Eric is what makes this my favorite book in the series.
