Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she'd rather not know. And now that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things that she knows about, she'd rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one. There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I think it is a great addition to the Sookie stories and wraps some things up nicely.

What other book might you compare Deadlocked to and why?

Just the other books in the series, I think over all they are great.

What does Johanna Parker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She gives a voice and life and gives the characters a great personality.

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

The end made me cry.

Where does A Touch of Dead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have listened to the other 9 Sookie Stackhouse books and I really like that this one fills in some of the gaps in the story. It really fits in well.

What did you like best about this story?

I like that we get to learn about the in between stories.

Have you listened to any of Johanna Parker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to all the Sookie Stackhouse books narrated by Johanna Parker, but no other series. Within this series I think that Johanna is the perfect voice for the series. Not only does she sound like I imagined Sookie would but from a practical standpoint she is easy to understand, and her use of multiple voices make's it easy to keep who it currently talking very clear in my head.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Since it is a collection of short stories I just wanted to listen to one story per sitting. But when I had time I listened to multiple ones.

I, Q is a wild and witty voyage through the secret soul of creation as only the enigmatic Q can tell it! Co-written and read by John de Lancie, who portrayed Q on television for more than a decade!
