Publisher's Summary

Charlaine Harris' Anthony Award-winning Sookie Stackhouse mysteries have become a fixture on the New York Times best-seller list and have inspired the acclaimed HBO series True Blood.

In her ninth adventure, Sookie has just tied on her cocktail waitress apron for a night's work when a special report comes on the television. The time has come. The wereanimals have revealed themselves.

But there's an even greater danger threatening Bon Temps. A race of unhuman beings - older, more powerful, and more secretive than vampires or werewolves - is preparing for war. And Sookie finds herself an all-too human pawn in their battle.

Listen to more titles in the Sookie Stackhouse series.

    "plodding, depressing and masochistic at best."

    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.

    "Thank you Charlanine Harris"

    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.

    "Couldn't put it down"

    I am ready for the next book Charlaine. My brain is aching to know what happens next. There was never a slow point in the book. However, a few holes here and there. I got so involved in the book I was staring at my Ipod when the narrator said "The End". I thought NO WAY!!!!! I love the whole series. I really love the relationship between Eric and Sookie.

    "Loved It!"

    I had been so excited about this book coming out that I was nervous it wouldn't live up to my expectations. My husband thinks I'm a little obsessed with the Southern Vampire Series. I can't help it, Harris has drawn me in with Sookie, Eric, Bill, and Sam.
    Dead and Gone is no let-down. I was thrilled to see the development between Sookie and Eric. I have become a huge Eric fan and enjoyed how Harris made me love him and question him even more in this book. And Bill....oh, how she smoothes him in there as well... I can't wait to see what becomes of the three of them.
    My only disappointment was that it ended too soon. I can't wait for the next one!

    "Another entertaining installment"

    Another Sookie Stackhouse entertaining book in this series. Already on book 9 and its only been a couple of months since I started. These books are just fun to listen to.

    Would you try another book from Charlaine Harris and/or Johanna Parker?

    Yes.


    If you’ve listened to books by Charlaine Harris before, how does this one compare?

    Not as good as the previous couple of books in the series.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Johanna Parker?

    Not sure. Didn't like her voice in the beginning but seems to be getting better.


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

    No, but then I'm not a movie person


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    "Much better than the last book"

    Although the series seems to be dying and should probably be left to die in peace. This book covered an expanse of just a few days that were crammed packed. Most "normal" people would just be tuckered out with all that happens in Soookie's life.

    "Love that Viking!"

    I wanted to give this 5 stars because of the development of the relationship between Eric and Sookie. Just that one love scene was enough to get the book for. But this could easily have been two books. First it starts off with the weres coming out of the closet (or whatever). That could have been developed so much more. Then we have the fey war. Again, abbreviated and deserved so much more development. Easily 2 books with the Eric subplot worked though one or the other, or even better, both.

    The narrator is very good.

    "Good Book Bad Audio quality"

    Beware! the audio (2 4) is horrible and doesnt match how the sample sounds like! Its not even in stereo its in mono!!! I am very dissapointed with the quality but Johana Parker as always gives depth to each minute character. It was definitely a book leaving you to want more! I am glad there is more Eric and Bill is getting likeable again.

    "SOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!"

    I thought we would have to wait until May 19 to get this on audio, as Amazon.com had that as the release date for the audiobook. So I'm so excited that I came by the site today and saw that it was available! I can't wait to start listening to it!
