Sookie Stackhouse - One Word Answer

One Word Answer by Charlaine Harris

In A Word, Yes!

One Word Answer is a short story in the Sookie Stackhouse universe that has been published in the book Bite. A book of short stories about dark seduction and vampires from a number of different authors.

Sookie is at home raking up her yard, at midnight, with the vampire Bubba. Just your ordinary night. When something unordinary happened. A limousine turned into Sookie's drive. A limousine would not turn up at Sookie's unless it was deliberate, no one turned up unless it was deliberate, that's how far out of the way Sookie's house was.

As a large gentleman emerged from the limousine, Sookie is left alone to face him, and from what she can 'hear' he isn't human. What could he possibly want from her, and what has all this to do with her long estranged cousin Hadley?

The large gentleman has not come alone; he has come with vampires in tow. Just as things start to look ominous for Sookie help arrives. But is it enough to save her from the task that has been bestowed upon her? Has she just made a powerful enemy? and will she survive another attack on her life?

A great little story offering an intriguing extra insight into the world of Sookie Stackhouse and its character. I strongly recommend reading the first five Sookie Stackhouse novels before you read this. This short story sets the background for what is to come in book six, Definitely Dead.
