    "More is revealed"

    Another great Sookie Stackhouse book. Some interesting things are revealed in this book pertaining to Sookie's relationship with Bill and Eric. The first part of the book was a little slow but it made up for it in the second half which was non-stop suspense and intrigue. Quinn has grown on me some in this book and Sookie is getting tougher.

    "A Series You Can't Miss"

    Sookie Stackhouse Series is a MUST read! I have listened/read all of the Sookie Stackhouse mysteries, 1 - 8. I enjoyed every single one of them. The writing is good, clear, suspenseful and humorous. The narrator, Johanna Parker, does some of the best narrating I have heard...exactly the way I would presume Sookie Stackhouse would sound. You can't go wrong with this series. I CAN'T WAIT until installment NINE!!

    "Thank you Ms Parker"

    I've read & loved this series from the beginning & have enjoyed the development of Sookie from a fairly naive barmaid to a more street-savvy person. In this book, her smarts are quite apparent but so is her wide-eyed, small-town persona.

    Johanna Parker's rendition of Sookie in this story as well as "Dead as a Doornail" is absolutely perfect. It is exactly as I imagined her to sound when I read the previous books. Ms Parker's voices for the other characters are also very good.

    For me, this was thoroughly enjoyable translation from paper to voice. I look forward to listening to the next one.

    "Just a fun adventure"

    I enjoyed True Blood on HBO so while listening to this book I can see the characters in my mind. Its a fun ( very dark at times ) adventure of Sookie and her strange friends. A+. I am a Man over 40 and a Fan of Dark Shadows. If you like DS you will like this.

    Story
    "Finally"

    well really #5 was good as well. the horrible fake southern accent is gone. there is still one which fits the setting perfectly but it is now toned down to normal.

    Story wise. I actually enjoyed this one the most, you get a more in depth look at vampire politics, and the shifter community. I also adore Quinn so seeing him get more face time is great. Sookie gets more feisty in this one and you can really see the backbone that is hinted at in the other books. She is becoming less whinny, its even acknowledged in the story itself by the character but seeing it actually play out makes me happy. You also get a good introduction to a lot of the other supernaturals in the world in this story.

    So far I would say this is one of the best.

    "least favorite sookie book so far"

    Kind of lame. Kept my attention but not as much fun as previous 5 books. But I'm hooked, on to book 7, can't stop now!

    I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)

    Story
    "Pretty good addition to the series :)"

    FYI - There is a #5.1 in the series, One Word Answer, that tells how Sookie found out about her cousin's death. I found it for free online and would recommend reading it before moving on to this book.

    3.5-4 stars

    This was a pretty good addition to the series. Things are going alright for Sookie as the story begins and Quinn (a were-Tiger she met in book #5) asks her out on a date. Unfortunately, their first date does get interrupted by an unfortunate event that heralds the beginning of more issues. Sookie's cousin (who was a Vampire and involved with the Vampire Queen) experienced her "final death" recently and Sookie gets called to New Orleans to sort out the estate. When she gets there, Sookie finds herself drawn into some pretty serious Vampire politics as well as having to deal with some shifter issues left over from a past issue/encounter. She also finds out some things about Bill that makes sure that she'll never be getting back together with him (IMO this was a good thing even if Sookie was hurt by her discovery). Fortunately, Sookie gets through things well and in relatively good health and still dating Quinn as the story ends.

    This was a pretty enjoyable story. I liked Sookie in this story and like the fact that she's dating Quinn. TBH, I would like to see her get together with Eric (and there still seems to be a possibility hanging between them) but Quinn seems like a good guy so I'm open to their relationship. The story itself was quick paced and kept me engaged so I'd recommend it. :)
