The Norseman’s Women by valyria
I am usually not one to love a vampire Sookie story (even though I’ve written one or two shorts about that prospect). Sookie as vampire stories sometimes leave too much “humanity” in Sookie–or they don’t let her be “vampire enough.” It’s a difficult balance to do well. But this story does the notion of a vampire Sookie justice and achieves a really great balance. The author makes the brilliant move of making Pam Sookie’s maker. The first part of this story is angsty–which you know I love. After that, we get great action and romance as Sookie learns to embrace her new “life” among the undead. Give this story a try if you haven’t already. It’s angsty and fun all at the same time–a wonderful combination!
I hope you like/liked this story as much as I did!
