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.

If you are into the series, then you have to listen to this one.
If you haven't listened to the series before, don't start here.
Johanna Parker is simply perfect as Sookie. She brings the series to life.
True Blood deviates a bit from the books, but provides sensational television. Anna Paquin as Sookie is also a delight.
While this book moves the series along, I found the way it ended a bit frustrating. If you are a big fan of Pam, Bill and Eric, you will be disappointed with the storyline. The upside of the book is that it does offer some interesting twists and turns that the reader cannot ignore. Overall, it is worth listening to, just not as enjoyable as some of the earlier works.
I have listened to them all and in no particular order and enjoyed every one. I know some listeners believe the series should end but not me. Deadlocked is more like a tv series season finale; a cliffhanger leaving you wanting more. I can not wait until next season. Johanna Parker has the perfect accent for Sookie, who grew up in Louisiana. Without her narration, the stories might not be so easy listening.
I love the voice of Johanna Parker. The audio had a multiple story line all going on at the same time. Then as always the stories are concluded by the end of the book.
Last year, CH said this might be the last Sookie book. If it is, I'll have to find a witch to cast a horrible spell on her. The story was good, but the ending was far too ambiguous. In fact, I first thought I hadn't gotten the complete download and had to recheck that I had the end of the book.....getting a little sadistic leaving us hanging like that Ms. Harris.
It is AWESOME! All the books I have listened to are awesome!
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.
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.
I actually really like this title and it completely fits the situation!
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!!!!!
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.
The narrator is only okay. She uses a bit of a sappy southern voice and it get wearing after this many books.
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!
You can't compare Charlaine Harris to anyone, she has an amazing imagination and creates the greatest characters! The books are so believable!
Anything with Eric. ;)
Say something about yourself!
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.
32 year old female in the DC area with a terribly long commute and high standards for my audiobooks... I like science fiction, science, instructional, and humorous novels.
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.
I like mostly fantasy - Robert Jordan, Charlaine Harris, Jim Butcher, Patricia Briggs, etc.
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.
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.
Sookie - of course!
Charlaine harris' other series are also good listens I'd recommend
