My 2 Cents’ Worth: Birds of A Feather
This is a human/vampire story. Yes, I do read them :D.
Sookie Stackhouse works with supernatural artifacts in an antiquities store, quietly dealing with things that the humans really shouldn’t get their hands on. This is just one of the secrets she’s keeping. The local vampire Sheriff knows a bit more about her than most – enough to demand a favour in return for his continued silence.
Birds Of A Feather is a very different Sookie/Eric story.
They already know each other in their Supernatural capacity. Eric asks for Sookie’s help. She reluctantly agrees.
Normally I’m not overly fond of dark Eric but chicpea9 did a really wonderful job of capturing his essence in this story. He’s dark but has his light moments.
Sookie isn’t AS conflicted over her feelings for him although she is still the same in that she doesn’t want to get hurt because she doesn’t see a relationship between the two of them travelling a path that doesn’t lead to HeartBreak Hotel.
