“Unseen adventures that give Sookie’s world a little more complexity and depth […] They’re entertaining and sometimes revelatory. In some ways, this feels like a farewell tour of the series, involving a jam session with top-notch musicians.”

Publishers Weekly

“Wildly entertaining […] Fifteen stories, cleverly and humorously written, shed light on several secondary characters who are as diverse as can be, from witches to werewolves, to Sookie’s own grandmother. Crisp storytelling, sharp dialogue and great pacing are the highlights of what, for Sookie fans, will be an anthology to die for.”

RT Book Reviews

“This new compilation with stories featuring Sookie’s world is a must-read […] The stories are a proper addition to Sookie’s world of make believe as her character is always standing in the background, always on the fringe of each and every story as it’s told. A great mix of funny and dark, this anthology will have readers and fans beyond excited.”
