Well, Sookie Stackhouse fans, we finally have an excerpt that would be from the audiobook excerpt we heard a few weeks ago but with a little more detail!! I know I am not the only one who has been starving for news of the final book!!
It is indeed a Prologue, which is a new one for a Sookie Stackhouse novel! Would you like a little snippet? Why……sure you would!!
The New Orleans businessman, whose gray hair put him in his fif¬ties, was accompanied by his much younger and taller bodyguard/ chauffeur on the night he met the devil in the French Quarter. The meeting was by prearrangement.
“This is really the Devil we’re going to see?” asked the bodyguard. He was tense—but then, that wasn’t too surprising.
“Not the Devil, but a devil.” The businessman was cool and col¬lected on the outside, but maybe not so much on the inside. “Since he came up to me at the Chamber of Commerce banquet, I’ve learned a lot of things I didn’t know before.” He looked around him, trying to spot the creature he’d agreed to meet. He told his bodyguard, “He convinced me that he was what he said he was. I always thought my daughter was simply deluded. I thought she imagined she had power because she wanted to have something . . . of her own. Now I’m willing to admit she has a certain talent, though nowhere near what she thinks.”
You can read the rest of the excerpt here and as usual sound off below to tell us what you thought!
UPDATE: Well, it seems Penguin giveth and they taketh away. In place of the prologue excerpt, there is now a bio on Ms.Charlaine Harris. We have no idea why this is so but we wanted to give you a heads up in case you click on the link again to view the prologue.
