Dahlia Underground

This is a review of the short story “Dahlia Underground” by Charlaine Harris. It can be found in the anthology “Crimes By Moonlight”.

“Dahlia Underground” is the third Dahlia Lynley-Chivers short story.

It takes place in the Sookieverse but has nothing to do with Sookie Stackhouse and chronologically comes after Dahlia’s brief appearance in the Sookie Stackhouse novel “All Together Dead“.

Dahlia wakes from her day-sleep to find herself trapped under piles and piles of rubble. She is very injured (a few broken limbs) and completely
alone. She is rescued by a human fire fighter.

Once she is back at the nest, she and her fellow vampires decide that the humans responsible (members of the Fellowship of the Sun) need to be found.

While doing some recon, Dahlia and Taffy discover that the Fellowship are doing more than just hiding. They are plotting to kill the human firefighters that helped find survivors of the Rhodes bombing.

It’s up to Dahlia to find the missing Fellowship members before they take the lives of the firefighters.

A great little read.
