Wall Street Journal : ‘Dead in the Family’: How Charlaine Harris and HBO’s ‘True Blood’ Vampires Stack Up

Move over, Twi-hards. Today, “True Blood” fans get center stage as “Dead in the Family,” the tenth book in author Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampire Series, hits bookstores.

Fans invested in “True Blood” protagonist Sookie Stackhouse’s love life have been eagerly awaiting the new title since 2009’s “Dead and Gone” ended on a romantic cliffhanger. Niall, Sookie’s fairy great-grandfather, told the telepathic barmaid that “the vampire is not a bad man, and he loves you.” But then gramps left the human world forever, before clarifying if he meant the blonde Eric Northman or the brunette Bill Compton. (One thing we know–Sookie will begin book 10 “officially” involved with hunky Nordic vamp Eric. In fact, the two have exchanged blood so often — usually to save the other’s life — they’re considered married by vampire law.)
