The saga continues and Sookie is summoned to New Orleans by the (Vampire) Queen of Lousiana. Yes, it sounds stupid. That is because it is!!! A vampire war breaks out and Sookie's dating a were-tiger. For Sookie fans, this book is a must read and you won't want to put it down!

My rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ( )

Sookie ends up eventually in New Orleans, to clear up after her cousin's death, her cousin who was the paramour of the local vampire queen. Eric forces Bill to admit why he had returned to Bon Temps and meanwhile someone is apparently hunting her. Quinn and Sookie start dating, which has mixed results

Look Sookie, after a while you have to stop mourning the normal you can never have back and you start playing with the deck of cards you've been dealt and try to make the best of it, occasionally you can look back and mourn the possibilities, but the past is a place you can't fix, only the present. There are a lot of characters to keep track of and many of them seem quite similar.

It's not bad but I had moments where I wanted to lecture Sookie about just facing up to life as it is. The discovery of what was going on and the battle at the end went very quickly and seemed to be resolved quite quickly, I'm curious about what's going to happen next but don't feel an urgent need to read it.

This book was ok...I like the Sookie books but it's hard for me to get into them. But I'm doing it!

I did like Sookie and Quinn =) ( )

I followed up the Twilight series with the Sookie Stackhouse series. A good, soft transition into more paranormal romance. Too much hype for Charlaine Harris's books because of the HBO series than deserved. The HBO series is fine; the books are fine, but the plot/mystery of each book is simple. Very quick read -- straightforward plot with friendly characters that are easy to like. If you enjoy paranormal, you will probably enjoy this series, but there truly are more gripping, non-plain vanilla paranormal series out there (both in terms of adult scenes and dynamic realtionships between various beings in the paranormal realm). My 4-star rating is based on my thoughts just after reading, but would probably garner only 3-stars after having read Alexancer Ivy, Jacqueline Frank and Gena Showalter. I stopped reading this series after the 9th book... ( )

Obviously, this book was finished months before Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast. Since much of the plot is set in New Orleans, I struggled with whether I would leave Definitely Dead as it was, or include the catastrophe of August and September. After much thought, since Sookie's visit takes place in the early spring of the year, I decided to let the book remain as it was originally written.

My heart goes out to the people of the beautiful city of New Orleans and to all the people of the coastal areas of Mississippi, my home state. My thoughts and prayers will be with you as you rebuild your homes and your lives.

I was draped over the arm of one of the most beautiful men I'd ever seen, and he was staring into my eyes.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0441014917, Mass Market Paperback)

As a person with so few living relatives, Louisiana cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse really hated to lose one. But she never guessed that it would be her cousin Hadley—a consort of the Vampire Queen of New Orleans. After all, technically speaking, Hadley was already dead. And now, as unexpected heir to Hadley’s estate, Sookie discovers the inheritance definitely comes with a risk.

Someone doesn’t want Sookie looking too deeply into Hadley’s past—or for that matter, Hadley’s possessions. And they’re prepared to do anything in their power to stop her. But who? The range of suspects runs from the Rogue Weres who reject Sookie as a friend of the Pack to the Vampire Queen herself, who could be working through a particularly vulnerable subject—Sookie’s first love, Bill.

Whoever it is, they’re definitely dangerous—and Sookie’s life is definitely on the line…

With HBO's launching of an all-new show, True Blood, based on the Southern Vampire novels, the demand for Charlaine Harris and Sookie Stackhouse is bigger than ever.
