    "Best Yet"

    Kind of a cult following, Sookie Stackhouse is now starring in her own HBO series. The books, however, must be better than the series! This one is definitely one of the better in the series. You can see the author really working on developing characters and their whole fantasy world. Worth the read!

    "Disappointing"

    As a Sookie fan, this book wasn't what I had come to expect from Harris. This is a rehash of previous plots that failed to deliver. I kept expecting it to get better and it just never took off.

    "Love the whole series"

    I was hooked up by the first book which I bought through a promotion, then it cost me additional 7 credits to buy the rest in a month. I have to upgrade my membership so that I could have enough credits for this series. Good strategy, Audible marketing team!

    This series is much better than the popular Twilight Sega. I couldn't finish that series since the main character in Twilight has no personality, but simply a self-centered, plain & boring girl with everybody else getting busy around her for no reason - how stupid. On the contract, Sukie in this series is a well developed character with amazing personality. She's not just beautiful, but determined, strong minded, and takes care of her friends along the way without thinking of any return. The stories are all very engaging, totally worth the money I cost for membership upgrading.

    I would highly recommend this serious.

    "Plotting an end?"

    I enjoyed the other books in the series much more than this particular book. "A trip down memory lane" might work in a sitcom episode, but the recap makes this book feel like leftovers.

    One of the charming/tragic aspects of Sookie was her inability to keep her life from trending toward hopeless complexity. Most of this book is devoted to closing dangling plot threads left over from the other seven books. It seems unusual for Sookie to wane her troubles down to just three or four. And that makes me worry that the author has tired of writing the Southern Vampire mysteries.

    Brilliant? Good, but not brilliant. New ground? a little. Worth reading after others in series, yes. Worth reading as an introduction to the series - absolutely not.

    Hopefully that time spent on plot thinning means the next book will have the same genius and humor that the other books in this series share.

    Many thanks to Charlaine Harris for days of enjoyment spent listening to the Southern Vampire mysteries.

    Love the Dead series. If you haven't read any yet, start with the first and keep going!

    "Love this series!"

    This was another entertaining installment in the world of Sookie. This series makes me want to keep coming back for more. I am getting ready to start book 9 out of 13. I will be a bit sad when the series is over. This audiobook was narrated by Johanna Parker. She does an excellent job.

    "A lot going on in this one."

    Things come to an end but new things show up, this makes for a lovely continuation in the story I look forward to hearing.

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

    "Pretty good addition to the series :)"

    3.5-4 stars

    This was a pretty good addition to the series. There was a lot going on in this book. When it begins, Sookie hasn't heard from Quinn since the end of the Vampire summit and she's worried about him. She doesn't know if he's in trouble or this is his messed up way of breaking things off with her. While she's waiting to hear from him a number of things take place. The weres have a war which doesn't end up being what everyone thinks it is at the start. Sookie is put in danger a number of times during the conflict but ends up being pivotal in it's end. There's a hostile takeover of the Vampire power structure for the state of Louisiana and Sookie gets pulled in because of her ties to Eric (and also the notice she got working for the Queen). She also finds out about some new relations and has trouble with an existing one (Jason). All together things are rather messy but get worked out pretty well in the end. Unfortunately, things don't go well on the relationship front and Sookie is single once again at the end of the story.

    This was a pretty enjoyable story. Sookie did well in this story. She had some tough things to get through and although she may not have always made the kindest decisions, I think she made the best ones she could considering the circumstances. Eric did end up remembering the time lost while he was cursed and I'm hoping that will help them get together in the future. Overall, the story was interesting and kept me engaged so I'm looking forward to seeing how things go in the next book in the series. :)

    FYI, the last 30 minutes of the audio version is actually a preview of the next book.
