Book Review: Dead Reckoning
TITLE: Dead Reckoning
Book 11 in the Sookie Stackhouse series
AUTHOR: Charlaine Harris
GENRE: urban fantasy, vampires, werewolves, faeries, romance
SHORT PREMISE: Sookie is back in the next installment of the series behind True Blood.
MY REVIEW: You know it amazes me when people say nothing happens in a Sookie Stackhous book. I mean really? No there wasn't much romance in this one or the last one. That's because Eric and Sookie are together. They still have plenty of problems though and being Sookie her life is hardly ever quiet.
I mean in this book alone, she deals with Sandra Pelt (yes, again), her bond with Eric breaking, secrets in her family life including the fact that her telapathy was actually given to her, Eric and Pam stage a coup and she winds up in a bloody battle and even her relationship with Eric gets in trouble because it turns out Eric is betrothed to the Queen of Oklahoma.
So nothing happened? Honestly people, I'd hate to see what you guys call a exciting book. By now most people have probably figured out if they're a Sookie fan or not. If you've enjoyed the books and are still sticking with it carry on. If not, carry on. I for one can't wait to see what's in store next. In the meantime I'll console myself with True Blood.
WHO SHOULD READ: Sookie Stackhouse fans, True Blood fans, Charlaine Harris fans
MY RATING: Four out of Five coffins
