Ayant trouvé un substitut pour se nourrir sans tuer (du sang synthétique), les vampires vivent désormais parmi les humains. Sookie, une serveuse capable de lire dans les esprits, tombe sous le charme de Bill, un mystérieux vampire. Une rencontre qui bouleverse la vie de la jeune femme.
Jessica was my favorite character on the show who never showed up in any of the books. Especially right after she was created, I thought she was such a great character because Bill felt so bad about turning her, and she was the perfect little sheltered church girl, and then she was all set to become 8a badass evil vampire, and it turned out that Bill was the right sire for her after all, to keep her in touch with her humanity.
