Caught up in the politics of the vampire world, psychic Sookie Stackhouse learns that she is as much of a pawn as any ordinary human in this novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.
With her knack for being in trouble’s way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte’s, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover, Eric Northman, and his “child” Pam are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot—which is much more complicated than she knows...
Praise for #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse novels
“It’s the kind of book you look forward to reading before you go to bed, thinking you’re only going to read one chapter, and then you end up reading seven.”—Alan Ball, executive producer of True Blood
“Vivid, subtle, and funny in her portrayal of southern life.”—Entertainment Weekly
“Charlaine Harris has vividly imagined telepathic barmaid Sookie Stackhouse and her small-town Louisiana milieu, where humans, vampires, shapeshifters, and other sentient critters live...Her mash-up of genres is delightful, taking elements from mysteries, horror stories, and romances.”—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
“The series continues to be inventive and funny with an engaging, smart, and sexy heroine.”—The Denver Post
“Blending action, romance, and comedy, Harris has created a fully functioning world so very close to our own, except, of course, for the vamps and other supernatural creatures.”—The Toronto Star
There was nothing out there like the Sookie Stackhouse series; a hero with the name of Vampire Bill... and a strange little woman named Sookie who could read minds - except of course for vampires. Bill has come and gone, and in Dead Reckoning (book #11) it is easy to see that Eric is also fading into obscurity. Both were once characters with depth, mystery and were well-developed, and now they are both bland versions of the characters they started out to be. Bill was noble and wise, and now he has become a boring computer analyst (seriously??). Eric Northman, the unstoppable Viking Vampire, seems to always be bowing down to someone else and seems to be afraid of his own shadow. Sookie, the misunderstood clairvoyant suddenly became Sookie the fairy (again... seriously??). Because the series started out so good, I buy each new novel hoping for the magic of the first few novels. I feel like I'm stuck in a dysfunctional relationship. I keep hoping they'll get better, and they don't. Then a new book comes out and the cycle begins again.
I have decided to end this relationship, I won't be reading any other books in the series (I know the series is coming to and end and I also know how it ends... it sucks - no pun intended).
