Dead and Gone: Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mystery #9

Now it's the turn of the weres and shifters to follow the lead of the undead and reveal their existence to the ordinary world.Sookie Stackhouse already knows about them, of course - her brother turns into a panther at the full moon, she's friend to the local Were pack, and Sam, her boss at Merlotte's bar, is a shifter. At first the great Were revelation seems to go well - then the horribly mutilated body of a were-panther is found outside Merlotte's.

Publisher's Summary

Now it's the turn of the weres and shifters to follow the lead of the undead and reveal their existence to the ordinary world. Sookie Stackhouse already knows about them, of course - her brother turns into a panther at the full moon, she's friend to the local Were pack, and Sam, her boss at Merlotte's bar, is a shifter.

At first, the great Were revelation seems to go well - then the horribly mutilated body of a were-panther is found outside Merlotte's. Though Sookie never cared that much for the victim, no one deserves such a horrible death, so she agrees to use her telepathic talent to track down the murderer.

But what Sookie doesn't realise is that there is a far greater danger than this killer threatening Bon Temps: a race of unhuman beings, older, more powerful and far more secretive than the vampires or the werewolves is preparing for war....

    "Excellent"

    I listened to all nine stories in a week having just discovered the fun of audio books on my ipod. Love the series.
    Dead & Gone continues the storyline and expands further on Sookie's fairy heritage and we find out a little more about Eric - always a bonus. I always thought fairy's were too good to be true.
    Looking forward to the new one in May.

    "Very good"

    After the disappointing (IMO) "From Dead to Worse", this is one of the stronger parts in the series. Nevertheless, sometimes I'm surprised how Sookie can miss some obvious hints as to what's going to happen next (the same was with the summit's surprise in "All Together Dead"). Well, otherwise, there would be no fun, right?

    Again, -1 star for the poor quality of the audio. :( (BTW, did anyone else notice Johanna Parker lost the accent that Eric used to have e.g. in part 1?)

    Any additional comments?

    Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.

    Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.

    I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

    Happy Reading

    "I love the Sookie Stackhouse Series!"

    I love everything Charlaine Harris does and this is no exception! What a great listen! Thoroughly enjoyable and of course snaps to the narrator who, as always, does a fantastic job!

    "Dead and Gone"

    This is the ninth and most recent addition to the Sookie Stackhouse series. I think this is perhaps the most powerful book in the series and certainly the darkest. The fairies are determined to eradicate any humans with their blood, and that, it goes without saying, includes are hapless heroin. In such a situation, not everyone will emerge smiling, and Sookie may be damaged in more ways than one. As usual, Charlaine Harris is in fine form, and I'm now left begging for book 10 released next year.

    "Dead and Gone"

    I read the first three and have books 4 to 9 on audio. They are so good, I love the stories and the characters. This has been the best, as usual I was gripped from start to finish, you never know what will happen to Sookie next. I am always sad to reach the end and cannot wait for the next one. Johanna Parker is exceptional, she brings all the characters to life, brilliant choice for audio

    Any additional comments?

    Everything I read I remember, everything I hear I remember...

    So as you can imagine I will consume a book and move on never to return, this series of books however are the only ones I have gone back through multiple times. This is because the characters are so intricately designed they become real, the story lines while based in fantasy from the off never fail to surprise and thoroughly delight. I have never had such an all round almost tactile experience from something that I've read to make me come back to them so often and with that first time read anticipation it's nuts because I remember every word already.

    They are utterly hilarious, full of blood-pumping action and downright hot in equal measure with so many more facets that will have you also coming back time and again.
    The books do not copy the T.V. Show plot line they are completely different the anchors for both being the familiarity of the main characters but both being superb in their own ways.

    A definite BUY IT NOW! you certainly will not regret it.

    "Very entertaining"

    This book is very entertaining and I could not stop until I had read the whole book. I loved the mix of characters and the plot of the book. You can listen to the book whilst basking in the sun in the park or whilst taking a walk. Absolutely beautiful.

    "Bit depressing really"

    Love the Sookie books, can't get enough of them, but this one was a hard listen at times, not wishing to give anything away but our heroine doesn't have a great time of it and it's all gone a bit dark and miserable. But still recommended reading to carry the whole saga along. I would get the next book too which is much more cheerful and carry straight through!
