I picked up the True Blood Omnibus at my local library. It was a lucky find as I could now review the first three Southern Vampire Mysteries for free.
The novel series starts rather slow but the world building is still excellent. The parallel between fictional discrimination against vampires and real world discrimination against LGBT+ people is very well portrayed. Sookie and Bill have yet to grow on me at this point and the story can feel a bit slow but, for a first novel, it’s a good way to dip your toes into Bon Temps for the first time.
That’s the short version. Here’s the long version.
