    1. More True Blood books? After Dead Ever After, I refuse to touch any more of her books because I feel cheated.This series is over, stop milking a dead cow.

    2. I'm delighted and honoured to have a story in this one - The Bat-Signal - about Luna, a character I've always be fascinated with (hey, who wouldn't want to be a werebat and fly! :-D), where she's searching for a missing teen, and gets some unexpected help when she runs into Hunter and Remy Savoy. I loved writing the story, and had a lot of fun doing so. I hope everyone who reads it enjoys it as much! But the star rating isn't for my story (that's up to other readers :-)) but but for all the othe [...]

    3. Feck no. If I want to read SVM Fanfiction, I know about a dozen or more writers who publish their work for FREE. This is garbage.

    4. I didn't know what to expect with Dead But Not Forgotten since I wasn't a huge fan of the way the series ended, but I've got to say I really enjoyed it.Nobody's Business - 4 Starsby Rachel CaineI'm a fan of Rachel Caine's, so I was looking forward to this one. About Kevin and Kenya, I thought it had the voice and feel of the Sookie books and really enjoyed it.Tyger, Tyger - 4.5 Starsby Christopher GoldenQuinn has a horrible day that goes from bad to worse. I didn't know if I'd like this one sinc [...]

    5. So I have lightened the load of book reviews I am doing this year, but this is a book I just couldn't turn down! When Audible offered me the chance to try the latest book set in the Sookieverse, I didn't balk at the fact that I had never read an audio book before, but jumped at the opportunity to see Sookie's world through eyes other than her original creator, Charlaine Harris! (And for those of you who have never read an Audio book before: if you have an account and a smart phone, you can hook [...]

    6. Let's put it this way: This was the book that I used to discover that Audible has a "return" policy. I couldn't even bring myself to finish it. I thought, well, since Charlaine isn't writing the stories, maybe they will actually be better than the last several Sookie books. Man, was I wrong. Very uneven, a few just horrible. A few of them made me wonder if the contributing authors had even *read* the original source material. No thanks. I didn't even get through it, returned it and got my credit [...]

    7. Oh my Jesus Christ lord in heaven, it's happening all over again! I can't I just can't When will it just stop.Alright a few more words. I see the list of characters included in these all new stories and I still don't see my favorites. This is beyond ridic. This isn't even fan service anymore. The fans have stop reading it eff it all.

    8. Ask me why I am going to read this when she is just milking this series for all it's worth?Because I'm a completistdamnit.

    9. I finished the Sookie Stackhouse series and thought that was that, but then I happened upon this book. At first, I didn't realize exactly what it was. I thought it was an antho of Sookie short stories, maybe even stories that had already been released so I was going to pass it up.Pfft, that would have been my loss. Yes, these were short stories from the world of Sookie Stackhouse, but they weren't previously published and they weren't even written by Charlaine Harris though they have her endorse [...]

    10. Overall seemed to be a good book. Would recommend to fans of the Sookie Stackhouse novels and the vampire genre. I checked this book out because it had a short story written by one of my favorite authors, Seanan McGuire.

    11. Tanta gente escribiendo reseñas sobre del estilo "Nunca voy a leerlo!" y se pierden de estas short stories sobre los personajes de Southern Vampire Mysteries, que son buenísimas!Mi favorita: La de Diantha (view spoiler)[ Mucho (aunque no suficiente) SOOKIE&SAM!! (hide spoiler)].EN realidad, todas me gustaron (view spoiler)[La de Pam no tanto (hide spoiler)]. Fue muy interesante una concepción diferente de los mejores personajes de la serie de CHARLAINE HARRIS a través de la pluma de otro [...]

    12. A very enjoyable revisit with some of the side characters in Sookie-ville. It was wonderful to read all these different authors view points and personalities. Fresh exciting and it felt new.

    13. Professional fan fiction, it's bound to become a trend (if it hasn't already, I don't know of similar books or I've forgotten). Authors are fans too, what a great way for everyone to make money, I bet many publishers will hop on board the train if and when it makes sense for their authors and series too. Everyone wins. Unless you're the kind of really strict fan who feels that only Harris's voice works for the characters. Now that I think of it, in some ways I guess movie, TV and video game tie- [...]

    14. A library book. "Stories from the world of Sookie Stackhouse" by various authors, edited by Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner.* * * * *Nearly all of these stories are excellent. Ms. Harris chose writers who write in the same style as her Sookie Stackhouse stories. This is a very interesting book for Sookie and/or "True Blood" fans.

    15. First, I will never forgive Charlaine Harris for her absolute flop of an ending for the Sookie Stackhouse books. I need to be open about my bias here.Second, I don't think my bias colors my review significantly. This is a collection of short stories inspired by the world of Sookie Stackhouse. Problem: The author is against fan fiction, so why is she okay with professional authors having a go at Sookie's world? This is related to problem 2: The majority of the stories do not feel stylistically co [...]

    16. I loved the idea of this book and was really excited about it. BUT It feels like it was lost in translation. None of the authors were able to capture the sweet southern charm that I've come to associate with Sookie and Co. These stories could have been fun, but most fell flat.

    17. I reluctantly picked this book up (in audiobook format) for a long drive with a fellow Sookie Stackhouse fan. I think my expectations for these stories was a little different than the actual set of stories. I wanted closure, or happiness for the characters that didn't really get a good HEA. These stories are mostly not designed to do that. It truly is what it says: Stories from the World of Sookie Stackhouse. No promises not to mess up a good happy ending, no promises to give you a happy ending. [...]

    19. Considering Charlaine Harris didn't actually write any of these I was kind of expecting more. Or at least better. Unfortunately, most of these stories were pretty terrible. It was difficult to tell if the voice actress was just really terrible at times or if it was the terrible writing. Her growly southern men tended to sound like really angry simpletons who yelled too much. But then sometimes she was good. I know how difficult it must be to come up with all those voices and sound like you ARE t [...]

    20. I didn't despise every story in this book. However, with so many glaring errors in continuity in character traits and facts earns this a single star. Of course, I've always been vocal about how much I despise Charlaine Harris allowing this book to be made. Not because I dislike the other authors. On the contrary, some of them have me interested in reading their own original works. But my biggest complaint comes from the fact that for years Charlaine adamantly shamed anyone who dared to roleplay [...]

    21. This review is for the audible version of LOVE STORY.This was a freebie from Audible available for only a short time. It told the story of Sookie's grandmother and how she met Sookie's fae grandfather. It also spoke of Sookie's grandmother's love for her husband and why she cheated on him. I love Sookie's grandmother and mere mortals often succumb to the fae glamour and charm.I thought the narrator did an excellent job. This was another audible that even though it was short, that I went back and [...]

    22. It is always tough when other authors attempt to write stories in an established universe, particularly when they mix in with other events, rather than continuing them. The best ones focus on minor characters in out-of-the-way places. The ones that focus on main characters create a picture of something big happening just slightly out of sight. I first saw this done terribly with the Dragonlance Tales. It retroactively takes away from the story when it turns out that every time a main character b [...]

    23. This is essentially a group of short stories inspired by the Sookie Stackhouse books. Most of the stories feature minor characters and most I will admit I skimmed through. These were not written by Charlaine Harris, so if you think that's what your getting, you will be disappointed. But if your dying to read anything related to the Sookieverse then this book is for you. I skipped most of the stories, but read The Real Santa Claus featuring Diantha, half demon. I also read the story about Bubba, [...]
