Dead as a Doornail: Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mystery #5 | [Charlaine Harris]

Dead as a Doornail: Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mystery #5

Sookie Stackhouse enjoys her life, mostly. She's a great cocktail waitress in a fun bar; she has a love life, albeit a bit complicated, and most people have come to terms with her telepathy. The problem is, Sookie wants a quiet life - but things just seem to happen to her and her friends. Now her brother Jason's eyes are starting to change: he's about to turn into a were-panther for the first time.

Publisher's Summary

Sookie Stackhouse enjoys her life, mostly. She's a great cocktail waitress in a fun bar; she has a love life, albeit a bit complicated, and most people have come to terms with her telepathy. The problem is, Sookie wants a quiet life - but things just seem to happen to her and her friends.

Now her brother Jason's eyes are starting to change: he's about to turn into a were-panther for the first time. She can deal with that, but her normal sisterly concern turns to cold fear when a sniper sets his deadly sights on the local changeling population. She's afraid not just because Jason's at risk, but because his new were-brethren suspect Jason may be the shooter.

Sookie has until the next full moon to find out who's behind the attacks - unless the killer decides to find her first.

    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!

    "Fangs for another Sookie story"

    This is a solid continuation of the Sookie Stackhouse story - although not my favourite. It still had me listening almost continuously & I find these stories are so much more satisfying than others of the genre. Johanna Parker's narration is a real treat too. I think I could listen to her read a shopping list.

    "Dead as a doornail"

    This is book 5 of the Sookie Stackhouse series. Someone seems to have it in for the local shifter population, and Sookie has until the next full moon to discover the culpret. This has all the Charlaine Harris trademarks; plenty of action, mystery and romance, and the characters fans have come to know and love. A great addition to the series.

    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.

    "Dead as a Doornail"

    I am very disappointed with this book, as I found the story line very poor.I think this will be the last one of this series that I will listen to and hope the TV series is better.
