The Sookie Stackhouse Companion - Spoilers Warning!

Spoilers Warning!

The Sookie Stackhouse Companion by Charlaine Harris contains a new Novella called "Small Town Wedding". It appears chronologically between Dead in the Family and Dead Reckoning. Small Town Wedding covers the story of when Sookie accompanies Sam to his brother's wedding after the two natured have reveled themselves to the public. It is a little story in itself, but it certainly adds something to the overall story. It is also significant because Sookie admits her love for Eric on at least two occasions. 

The rest of the book has a few bits and pieces about the Sookieverse. There is an explanation about where all the short stories fit in with the series. A chapter about the different kinds of supernatural beings. A family tree to show Sookie's fairy ancestry. Trivia questions and answers which could be useful for a True Blood fun night. Southern Recipes are included such as Lafayette's special burger sauce, Caroline Bellefleur's Chocolate Cake and Merlotte's Chicken Strips. There is also some discussion around the True Blood TV Series and Charlaine Harris's other works. My favourite part was a map in the beginning of Bon Temps. I love books with maps. I think this is a must for fans of Sookie!
