    "Addicted"

    I am surprised to say this, but I think I love this series more than Twilight. I couldn't wait for more credits so I bought the rest of the series. This is a first for me. Try it, you'll like it.

    "Funny and addictive"

    Actually I rate it 4.5. I love Charlaine Harris and the Sookie Stackhouse series. Sookie is like a telepathic Ellie May with a bit more wisdom. Her inner dialogue is witty and fresh. The sexual enuendos are funny and reveal a normal, lusty young woman who just happens to get turned on by vampires. My only criticism is that the chemistry between Eric & Sookie is not as tender and intimate as the one between Bill & Sookie when they first began a relationship. I have read all of this series as well as the ones with Harper Connelly............looking forward to more of those!

    "This may be the best of the series"

    This book was so great. All of these books so far have been amazing, but this one really kicks it into gear. Charlaine's story and Johanna Parker's narration drew me in and engaged me like always. The added tension and sexual chemistry between Sookie and Erik really top it all off though and push this book right past the previous 3.

    "Best Book for the Eric Northman Fans"

    If you like the Eric Northman character, you'll LOVE him after this book. As a Eric fan, this was my favorite out of all of the Sookie Stackhouase books. It was a fun to listen to this book, at times I actually found myself laughing out loud. Johanna Parker is a fantastic narrator, and does a perfect Sookie.....(at least in the 1st 4 books, I was disappointed with the 5th) Having read all the books, I was not sorry about purchaching the audiable versions. They are a blast listening to. I highly recommend listening to the audio books, if you are a Sookie Stackhouse fan.

    I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)

    "Familiar but engaging storyline."

    Well, I think this is the most sexually graphic one so far. I have to say though, that I don't really like the Eric in this novel - who wants to have sex with such a puppy-dog?

    I like this series quite a bit: the story line doesn't vary much: bad supernatural occurrences drag Sookie (and/or her family and/or her current lover) into trouble and she survives via a combination of good luck and the help of other supernatural beings.

    Oh, and she gets some (pretty decent) sex too.

    Really, what more does one expect when they pick up a novel like this? The narration is the same as the first books in the series: spot on for Sookie and identifiable for everyone else.

    "I Love Sookie Stackhouse!!!"

    I waited to write a review until I listened to all 12 books. I loved them all. Sookie is a breath of fresh air small town girl who has had problems in the past with romance because she has the gift of reading minds. Imagine going on a date and hearing everything the guy was thinking... Not good. With vampires out of the closet, she finds she can't read vampire minds. Finally she can have true romance. There is also Mystery, Murder, and Mayhem and more supernatural creatures to be revealed!
    I loved all the characters and how the story unfolded through all the books. It was bitter sweet that it had to come to an end. I was going to watch True Blood on HBO until friends told me it wasn't nearly as good as the books and had way too much porn!! I will leave the same review for all twelve books. Sookie just wouldn't be Sookie without Johanna Parker, I loved her voice!

    "One of my favorites so far."
    Where does Dead to the World rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really liked the storyline with the witches and Eric and Sookies relationship. It is one of the best books so far.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    In this book, I like to hear about the "nice" Erik. It is a nice change.


    Which character – as performed by Johanna Parker – was your favorite?

    Sookie, hands down, but she has a great range for her characters. She always does a great job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh in some parts, but not cry. The only thing I didn't care for was the Ware-panther storyline. I could have lived without that. Not my favorite in the book or the tv show.

    So far this is my favorite Sookie novel. It will be interesting to see how the new story seeds continue.
