are one of my oldest friends right I love our yearly visits at your old Stackhouse family home sitting on the porch soaking up the sun and drinking iced tea It s great to live vicariously through you and hear about the most powerful and sexy supernatural beasts falling over themselves to flirt with and please you And Eric Mmmm Anytime you want to tell me all of his dirty little secrets and every sexy thing about him that is okay with me But here s the thing Sookie You tend to ramble A lot Don t get offended I love hearing you talk and visiting Bon Temps with you But our time is limited And as much as I love hearing all those mundane details of your life I really wish our time together could be used wisely Your life is so exciting and so many fascinating things happen to and around you I d much rather hear about your supernatural activities than the particulars that went into preparing for Tara s baby showers The next time we meet it would be awesome if you stuck to the important facts Don t get me wrong I love hearing you talk about brushing your hair and cleaning the Hilla Rebay kitchen But if you can t bring yourself to edit those little fine points in favor of the bigger ones perhaps you could convince Charlaine Harris to allow us pages to visit Even so I did enjoy our time together and am looking forward to seeing you again next spring Hopefully you and Eric will get alone time and you can tell me everything Your friend Megan PS I loved Bubba s concert Anytime you can get that guy to make an appearance and especially sing be sure to tell me allll about it Oh My

to contain cusses This is also going to call out Tru Blood People are going to either like this or not First Tru Blood hasilled this series cue outrage from fans of the HBO show For the record this is not about those that like the show I don t but it s not about the fans It s about Harris complacency and riding on the success of the show which she absolutely should she s one of my favorite authors

Dead ReckoningIme but she really went all out Sookie is a character with a rare handful of people she can trust not even that She is uite often alone And that theme featured a lot in this installment With Eric s new day man being a lone wolf Eric asking her to move in with him b c the thought of her being alone feeling her fear made him crazy Her really feeling the isolation in this installment esp when she icks everyone out of her home Poor Sookie SookieOverall this place which Sookie is in yet another crossroads deciding who she can trust turn to what will happen to her relationship what will that mean for her future This is all great meaty stuffAnd now for my biggest issuethe potential plot inconsistency it s the convo between "SC D about how Niall Eric were in cahoots It soo "D about how Niall Eric were in cahoots It soo t stack I am investigating that one won t bog down the review with it but in fairness I will change my rating if it turns out that it s not a sloppy hole filling plot inconsistency b c CH didn t have enough material to plan 13 books Edited May 14th I thought when reading that b c CH has stated she writes by the seat of her pants that she was going back to try fit in plots in places she thought were vague enough in order to make things work now that she had to stretch the series out After all she has made a lot of obvious errors in the past that her readers have caught called her on In this book CD tell Sookie that Eric had approached Niall to send protection for Sookie hence Niall calling in Claudine b c she was withering The implication being Eric new who Niall was in connection to SookieCH recently stated in April that DR doesn t have a word about the history between Niall and Eric because it s not important to Sookie s story I think those crafty fairies are definitely up to something It seems to me that Ms Harris is being and influenced by the show which in case of the novel is a bad thing Does anybody else have a feeling that the author is setting a scene for a convenient fading out Eric and a not so miraculous reintroduction of Bill The dialogue between S and E is stale and lacks in energyWhereas Bill s character all of the sudden shows signs of sense of humour In short I wouldn t be surprised if in the end of the series Eric ended up dead and Bill emerged as a Sookie s true loveWell if I were Stephen Moyer I would be thrilled I am willing to bet that this book was as much of a torture for Charlaine Harris to write as it was for me to read There is no juice left in this series And certainly there is no author s love Not only is Sookie s voice no longer recognizable I just reread books 1 3 so I can in fact tell the difference but this whole book is simply one huge FAIL The characters were altered Where was cool Pam Where was sarcastic Eric Where was chemistry between Sookie I don t now why I have this feeling we will be disappointed with this installment I just feel the series needs a closure and it doesn t seem like it I want Eric but I don t think I ll get all the Eric I need to get to love this series again It feels like this book is just gonna be another chapter in the series and not as whole book I m not sure if I made myself clearlol 3 12 StarsI should start off by saying that though the Sookie Stackhouse series isn t my all time favorite series Eric Northman IS my all time favorite fictional character AND GODDAMN I LOVE ME SOME PAMHalf of the reason I love these books is the Eric and Pam relationship I find them endlessly entertaining Though there weren t enough appearances of them there never are there were some comedic bits between the two I enjoyed the funny jabs at Sookie on Pam s behalf One scene in particular involving a gift to Sookieyeah that was classicThe other half of the reason I love these books is Eric s relationship with Sookie However I think Eric is too good for Sookie I ve honestly never been a big fan of her I think she S A BRAT SHE YELLS TOO MUCH SHE S a brat she yells too much she s judgmental changes her mind to whatever suits her at the momentand the hits can The Wild Side keep coming but I ll stop here That said I was even annoyed with her in this book because her character has seemed to make ABSOLUTELY NO PROGRESSION she is not maturing in anyway except maybe by obsessing over cleaning her house when she s stressed or so the stereotype goeswhich happened WAAAAAAY too much but I digress I think it s obvious that there is no longer a love affair with our author and these characters Though I enjoyed reading this when I wasn t overly frustrated it felt a bit hollow I don tnow how else to describe it Though I m not happy with where some storylines SEEM to be going there are others that are intriguing I ll leave it at that so as to not spoil anything B 69% Satisfactory Notes Cozy and familiar while at the same time sloppy amateurish and blah No direction just seemingly random event.
