Dead Until Dawn

Up until just recently none of the authors of this blog have read the Charlaine Harris novels in the Sookie Stackhouse series.  Over the holiday weekend I finally read Dead Until Dawn and I was happy I finally got the chance to read the book.  

True Blood, the HBO series goes along with the book pretty well but there are some differences. Tara for example is not in the book series.  I won't go into too many of the differences because I know some of you have not read the book yet, but are planning to do so before the second season of True Blood airs.  I think what struck me the most was the ending of the book, it was much creepier than the True Blood season finale.  

I have already started reading the second book in the Sookie Stackhouse Series, Living Dead in Dallas, which I'm sure I will get in trouble for later when Alanna and Kiki find out!  At this point, I can't see how the True Blood television series is going to be in sync with the novel series, because the differences between the first True Blood season and the first novel! 

Have you read Dead Until Dawn?  What did you think?
