Book Review: All Together Dead
TITLE: All Together Dead
PART IN SERIES: Book 7 in the Sookie Stackhouse Series
AUTHOR: Charlaine Harris
GENRE: Adult, vampires, fantasy, mystery, romance, chick-lit, series
PREMISE: Sookie Stackhouse is back and this time she's headed to a vampire summit to be a witness in a vampire trial.
MY REVIEW: Compared to the last book, this one was much better organized. Definitely Dead had the problem of being a book that was trying to tie up loose ends and being transitional. Now, we can finally move on to more stuff. I found this one interesting because we got a glimpse of how vampires do justice. There was also more vampire politics and we got the return of Barry the Bellhop who turns out to be even more of a flirt then Jason. Yeah, I know.
As with all the Sookie books, there are a string of events, hot sex (this time with Quinn), and Sookie dealing with vampires. Her relationship with Eric gets more complicated (I know you're probably like it wasn't complicated already? But it actually does) and Bill...is just there. I have to say I kind of am getting over the Bill storyline now. I hope Harris wraps this one up and doesn't drag it on for books like she did with the Pelt storyline.
So all in all, same old Sookie book. If you've gotten this far in the series you've probably already decided if these books are for you or not. Me? I'm still addicted and still don't know why.
WHO SHOULD READ: vampire fans, True Blood fans, if you've read the rest of the previous books
MY RATING: Still Three and a half out of Five vampires
FOR THE FOLLOWING CHALLENGES:
