I have listened to the whole series now I am waiting for the next installment. This is a classic Harris novel. Ms. Parker brings these words to life. I feel close to each these characters. It was very good. I would like the next one to allow for Sukie to find love without so much peril. Thanks.
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
Great series. I'm just sorry that there isn't anymore in the series.
I thought this was the best yet in the series. The story fills in a lot of details, and keeps you reading. I love the way Charlaine Harris has developed Sookie from a naieve country girl to one who has hardened with the trials of life, but still keeps a positive, tough attitude.
I had been looking forward to this book for several months and I enjoyed listening to it. However, I think the author tried to cram too much into too few pages. She covers a lot of ground so its hard to get emotionally connected to any of the events and a lot of the characters. It seems like the mysterious fairy war should have been a book all on its own to have any kind of impact. The story felt rushed and seemed to end abruptly. I would recommend this to Sookie fans, but I would have to tell Sookie newbies to start at the beginning of the series to have any idea what's going on. As far as the audio is concerned; I wish they had chosen someone else to read this. The narrator was not as good as others I've heard.
Dark times have come to Bon Temps, LA, and Sookie is in the middle. The werewolves have come out and fear has settled with some, curiosity with others. This chapter of Sookie's life is a more violent yet the story flows with the times. Her relationship with Eric gets more attention and confusion! As always it leaves you wanting more...
This was a GREAT listen - enthralling, exciting, suspenseful, and sexy. Did I mention that this is the best Sookie Stackhouse Story yet?

Charlene Harris must be burnt out on writing SVM. All she seems to do here is rip up the tapestry of her long developed story arch we all wait upon. In the style of a bad bad movie sequel - Charlene kills off a lot of main characters, and really seems to not be having fun. Gone is the exploration, excitement and humor of her previous books. This book was plodding, depressing and masochistic at best. I think she needs a vacation away from this series for a while before she goes and drives a stake through its heart.
Charlaine Harris has once again out done herself! This addition to the Sookie Stackhouse series was worth waiting for. If it is possible to fall more in love with the heroine you will. Charlaine Harris knows how to pull on the emotional string while filling the story with excitement, suspense and deep character detail. The world of Sookie Stackhouse of is enthralling and addictive. The show “True Blood” based on the Sookie Stackhouse stories only reveals the outer most surface of the addictive story line. Please start from the beginning of the series so that you do not miss any of the fine details offered by the author.
My only regret in this story line is that I can not share it with the younger members of my family. This is an adult story. A great story yes, but it would be a strong R rating if it were a movie.
I can not wait for the next installment. I hope Charlaine Harris does not bask too long in the success of “Dead and Gone” and publishes the next installment very soon.
