Dead to the World (#4)

Previous: Club Dead | Next: Dead as a Doornail

Psychic Sookie Stackhouse has her hands full with an amnesiac vampire in the fourth seductive novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

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…


“[A] delightful series. [Harris] makes Sookie so real we can accept her world of vampires and mind reading as normal also.”

The Denver Post

“An increasingly riotous series […] Ms. Harris has never been in better form.”

The Dallas Morning News

“Gripping and spicy.”


“Fans of Laurell Hamilton’s Anita Blake looking for a lighter version should cotton to Sookie Stackhouse. Consistent, well-built characters and a strong action-packed plot that will keep readers guessing to the end distinguish this frothy blend of romance, mystery and fantasy.”

Publishers Weekly

“Atmospheric and edgy [...] This steamy yarn is one fans of supernatural romance and Southern mysteries will also relish.”

RT Book Reviews

“Another fun installment in a consistently amusing mystery series.”


“Best in the series so far.”

Science Fiction Chronicle

“I’m a fan! Whenever a new book in this terrific series arrives in bookstores, I’m the first in line to buy it [...] Harris writes with style, wit, and warmth.”

Jayne Ann Krentz, New York Times bestselling author of THE WAITING GAME
