This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
Things between cocktail waitress Sookie and her vampire boyfriend Bill seem to be going excellently (apart from the small matter of him being undead) until he leaves town for a while. A long while. Bill’s sinister boss Eric has an idea of where to find him, whisking her off to Jackson, Mississippi to mingle with the under-underworld at Club Dead. When she finally catches up with the errant vampire, he is in big trouble and caught in an act of serious betrayal. This raises serious doubts as to whether she should save him or start sharpening a few stakes of her own ..
I’m not sure if it’s just me, who’s experienced this, but all three books seem different when trying to find similarities. It was a pleasure to read, most enjoyable and I like the fact that it’s an easy read and once it’s done there’s not much to think about really.
I had a problem with the slow start but once it starts getting interesting, it’s almost nonstop action, the good kind of action! Where’s my dear Bill, I miss him even though he can be a jerk! Sookie makes Bill a better man that’s easy to see already and I hope that they’ll end up repairing their relationship; I miss the love from the first book.
Another development that happened was the introduction of a new person, of course there has to be a new person that falls in love with Sookie.
Sookie’s monologues has become more self-absorbed. It feels like Harris used Sookie’s dressing up and fixing nails to fill the pages. It’s okay to hear about but let’s keep it at a minimum next time, okay? I’m not sure if it’s a strategic move from her part, but the world building seemed to lack a bit. I wanted to know more about the supernatural creatures that’s being introduced and more about the “things”, we’ve already seen before.
