I'm becoming more and more disenchanted with what Charlaine Harris has to offer. The short story contained within this collection of information about the Sookie-verse was disappointing. It contained a few nuggets of useful information but largely went about the task of setting up the inevitable reunion of Sookie and Quinn . I didn't read the recipes nor did I spend any time on the retelling of all the previous books. The section of conversations between Eric and Bill read as poorly written fan fiction.
