Fans at University of Houston: Vampires ready for third season

From the University of Houston "Daily Cougar" which is the alma mater of a human that is close to Dallas !

HBO likes to tease our large, fang-banger hearts, and with the premiere of the third season of True Blood creeping up on June 13, anticipation is steadily growing monstrous.

The countdown began with the release of the 12-week promo posters two weeks ago, which will be released once a week until the day of the premiere.

Harris uses it to explore the dark, vampiric side of human nature, while Meyer, mistakenly, thinks that she can vanquish the vampiric altogether (she can’t and doesn’t, though possibly she doesn’t realize this).

coverThrough her contact with vampires, the danger and intrigues and moral conundrums they bring into her life, Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse discovers her own primitive, uncivilized self—and a capacity for violence. Sookie may be friendly, hard-working, kind, and generous most of the time, but when she drinks from vampire Bill a second time, she begins to feel her own vampiric longings and potential:
