    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won numerous awards for her Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series, which has been adapted into the hit HBO show True Blood. In this 13th and final book, a murder rocks the town of Bon Temps and Sookie is arrested for the crime. After making bail, she sets out to clear her name - but her investigation only leads to more deaths.

    Has Dead Ever After turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No but this has spoiled the series for me.


    What three words best describe Johanna Parker’s performance?

    I love her


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dead Ever After?

    the trailer. *shivers*


    Any additional comments?

    I feel cheated out of a true happily ever after, for the fans and for the protagonist. Instead, Sookie ends up with a "we'll take it slow" with her bff. What a tragedy. It sullied the entire series that was filled so much promise. I've read better fan fiction that was more devoted to the continuity of characters and had a greater love and reverence for the overall Sookieverse. Charlaine needs a do over, beginning with book 10 or maybe even 9.

    They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world---and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker...and this one decided that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I did recommend this series. The situations are somewhat predictable but still entertaining. Chicago is an amazing setting. The political climate is true to life, imo.


    What other book might you compare Some Girls Bite to and why?

    Southern Vampire Mysteries. That's also about vampires living in the open in modern day society. The heroin has special abilities, as well.


    What didn’t you like about Cynthia Holloway’s performance?

    I find the narrators voice hypnotic and soothing. Unfortunately, she's not very good at transitioning from the characters.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably
