Book Review: Sookie Stackhouse Number 5
TITLE: Dead as a Doornail
PART OF A SERIES: Book 5 in the Sookie Stackhouse Series/Southern Vampires series
AUTHOR: Charlaine Harris
GENRE: adult, mystery, romance, urban fantasy, vampires
PREMISE: In the fifth Sookie Stackhouse book, snipers are taking out shifters in the small town of Bon Temps; the were pack is in the midst of choosing a leader; Eric is trying to work out what happened to him in the last book and many other things.
MY REVIEW: Still addicted to this series and I have given up trying to figure out why. Like the other books there are many things going on in this and Sookie has to deal with it. Some events she handles well, others not so much. I have a definite feeling that there will be consequences coming from this book. Especially with the outcome of who becomes leader of the were-pack (not saying!).
Harris still keeps a great pace in this series and still keeps it interesting. She also slowly shows how things are in these fantasy worlds without giving it all away at once which I appreciate. I also found Andy Bellefleur's more active involvement really interesting and can't wait to see what becomes of that. I also can't wait to see what Eric does with his new found knowledge. All in all, if you are fan of this series, you will not be disappointed.
WHO SHOULD READ: vampire fans, Twilight fans, True Blood fans, if you liked the first few books
MY RATING: Three and a half out of five hot vampires
