Deadlocked: A Sookie Stackhouse Novel, Book 12 | [Charlaine Harris]

Deadlocked: A Sookie Stackhouse Novel, Book 12

Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she'd rather not know. And now that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things that she knows about, she'd rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one. There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town.

Publisher's Summary

It’s vampire politics as usual around the town of Bon Temps, but never before have they hit so close to Sookie’s heart….

Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she'd rather not know. And now that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things that she knows about, she'd rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one.

There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town. It’s the worst possible time for a human body to show up in Eric's front yard—especially the body of the woman whose blood he just drank.

Now, it's up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl's fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who's set out to make Sookie's world come crashing down.

    "ALL I CAN SAY IS WOW!"
    Where does Deadlocked rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    It is AWESOME! All the books I have listened to are awesome!


    What other book might you compare Deadlocked to and why?

    Okay so this one is very refreshing and was written more as to give insight into Sookie and her own mind. I will be sad to see her go, and I really hope that she does not die in the end nor go to fairy. That would just be too easy... Charlaine Harris has created such evolution with this character, when you start with her first book Sookie is naive and everything freaks her out. One of the first things I noticed was she is not nearly as upset by blood and death as before, she has an edge to her now and I appreciate her so much more for it. I enjoyed being able to see a glimpse of the old Sookie but also the more mature one as well. So far this is one of my favorite in the series... I REALLY cannot wait for the final book.


    What about Johanna Parker???s performance did you like?

    AMAZING!!! Johanna Parker has such an awesome ability to perform the characters, she NEVER just reads the story. She makes you feel like she is living the story with you as it unfolds. You can tell she enjoys what she does and the joy it brings to others.


    If you could rename Deadlocked, what would you call it?

    I actually really like this title and it completely fits the situation!


    Any additional comments?

    Charlaine Harris is by far one of my favorite authors and I cannot wait to see what new series she has in store for us! She is who I think of when I hear the word creative! Bring on the final book... the loyal readers cannot wait!!!!!

    "Good book"
    Would you listen to Deadlocked again? Why?

    Yes I would listen again, and have. I enjoy this series, but don't care to watch the tv version. My imagination is much better.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator is only okay. She uses a bit of a sappy southern voice and it get wearing after this many books.

    "Another amazing book"
    What made the experience of listening to Deadlocked the most enjoyable?

    I loved listening to the story because the reader gives the characters emotions that you might not pick up on if your just reading it, plus it allows me to continue working!


    What other book might you compare Deadlocked to and why?

    You can't compare Charlaine Harris to anyone, she has an amazing imagination and creates the greatest characters! The books are so believable!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Anything with Eric. ;)

    "Another very good Sookie Story"
    If you could sum up Deadlocked in three words, what would they be?

    I was worried that with "True Blood" the timber and pace of the Sookie stories would change. Nope. They are nicely verbose and laid back.
    Another Excellent story that is a delight to listen to.
    Keep up the GREAT work, Charlaine.

    "Now I love the audiobooks, too"
    Would you listen to Deadlocked again? Why?

    This person did a great imitation of the Sookie from TV. I had read the books, learned to almost like the television show (it's always hard to see characters you pictured in your head portrayed by someone else's imagination), and then decided the last in the series I'd listen to in audio format. It really didn't disappoint. The narrator did a great job and Charlaine Harris' books always leave me wanting to hear more.

    "Another Good Sookie Stackhouse Story!!"
    Where does Deadlocked rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    All the Sookie Stackhouse novels are one of my favorite series & this book is very good. You will need to read the books in order to really get the most out of this book.


    What other book might you compare Deadlocked to and why?

    The series is comparable to Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompsan series & to Kim Harrison's Hallow Witch series, although Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stakhouse is by far my favorite. All have a strong female lead, a magic theme, & good narration.


    Which character ??? as performed by Johanna Parker ??? was your favorite?

    Sookie - of course!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Charlaine harris' other series are also good listens I'd recommend

    Where does Deadlocked rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love Sookie but I understood this was the last one in the series and it meandered around and whent fizzle at the end.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I expected more, this is a good book in a series not a last book


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    She's great and did the usual good job


    If you could take any character from Deadlocked out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Sookie, she's just nice.


    Any additional comments?

    I still love the series and I'd still buy the next one

    "As good as the rest"
    Where does Deadlocked rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the better ones in the series. It ties up a lot of the loose ends that the last one left behind. And Johanna Parker as always does a great job w/narration.

    "Wow! Great winding down of the story."

    Great story! Can't wait to see how the rest of Sookie's world wraps up for the end of the last book.

    "Enjoyed it but not as much"

    The Sookie novels were my saviour after reading Twilight and thinking I would never find anything else to read again. Usually I cannot put a Sookie book down but this one I did 2 or 3 times. Not sure why just did not capture me
