The Sookie Stackhouse Companion

The Sookie Stackhouse Companion by Charlaine Harris
Urban Fantasy
This is a complete compendium of Sookie's facts.  There are Q & A's. from Charlaine Harris, the author and Alan Bell the creator of True Blood.  There are descriptions for each book and a large glossary of Sookieville.  There are some recipes that have tantalized the reader from the books.

Included also is the novella - Small-Town Wedding.

Sookie travels to Wright, Texas with Sam as his date when his brother gets married.  Sam's mother got shot by his step-father when the shape-shifters came out to the public.  The wedding was delayed due to the unrest in the community and the bride's family being uneasy even though Sam's brother is not a shifter.

Sam's family is excited that Sam has brought a date but quickly realize that Sookie is just a friend. The Merlotte's next door neighbour has been a big problem due to his friendship and same ideals as Sam's step-father.  The wedding may not take place because of the unrest and protests.

This novella cleared up a point in one of the books where the events of the wedding were considered having happened even though I had not yet read this novella.

This is a good book for all the facts.

First Line: "Sookie and I go back a long way."
