This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on that there are things she’d rather not know. An now that she’s an adult, she also realizes that some things 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. It’s the worst possible time for a human body to show up in Eric’s front yard–especially the body of the woman whose blood he just drank.
Now it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who’s set out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down.
There wasn’t much story in this book. The little excitement the author could produce was shot down by my beginning hate to Sookie.
The mystery plot wasn’t interesting in any way. It was too easy to solve, and it lacked everything the books used to contain, spirit.
Just when I thought something interesting were to happen and I felt the buildup Harris is famous for, I got shot down hard.
I’m so disappointed right now. The books has become too every day. We spend more time hearing about Sookie cooking, washing her hair and picking up her goddamn mail and this is not the first time Harris has spent an insane amount of time on useless stuff however, now I’ve had enough.
I don’t buy the relationship part of the book either. It lacks passion and belief. Now I’m just looking for a Semi decent ending! Because everything I held dear to the series has been stolen from me.
Uhm, cover looks cool!
