True Blood: A Field Guide to Vampires (and other creatures of Satan) by Gianna Sobol and Michael McMillian
Fun title co-written by McMillian who plays Reverend Steve Newlin on the hit HBO series True Blood.
Imagine that Reverend Newlin kept a journal full of notes on the vampires, weres, other supers and sympathizers in Bon Temps. His notes would include secrets about the creatures and updates on the whereabouts of some.
Now, imagine said journal was lost by Newlin and found by Shreveport Vamps Eric Northman and Pam Beaufort de Swynford - who added their own snide comments to the text with the intent of turning it back over to Newlin when finished.
Such is the plot of this book, True Blood fans will enjoy reading about their favorite characters - and will probably find themselves reading it in Newlin's character. A bit lengthy in some sections, but overall a fun read. The language can be a bit raw occasionally.
