So again I picked up the next in the Sookie Stackhouse series,Dead to the World (Southern Vampire Mysteries, Book 4) by Charlaine Harris from the library as soon as I finished the last one. Something that is strange to me is there was a waiting list so long I had to wait months to get the first in the series but the rest of them have practically been sitting on the shelf waiting for me to just pick them up. Did all those people really not like the first book to the point that they don't even care to put the others on hold or did all those people put the first one on hold with the intention of reading it but never read it or even checked it out at all?
Oh well it works out for me now because I am able to read them all so fast.
All I'm saying about this one is I want to be on Bill's side because you know he's the good guy and all but I think I'm on Eric's. Oh hell why can't they just all get along and do it together? I don't feel like threesomes are in the future of these books but if there is and it isn't between Sookie, Bill and Eric I am going to be disappointed.
Another good review with just enough but not too much given away.
One of the best-known and best writers of the new American mythology is Charlaine Harris. Dead to the World is the fourth novel in her Anthony Award-winning Southern Vampire series. It continues the story of psychic waitress Sookie Stackhouse, who has fallen out with her undead lover, Bill. Bill has no sooner departed for Peru, than Sookie finds the head vampire, Eric, running naked and terrified through the rural night. She helps Eric, and discovers his memory has been destroyed by a coven of unscrupulous, astonishingly powerful witches, newly arrived in her small Louisiana town, and offering a huge reward for Eric. Sookie tries to hide Eric, but her brother sees him--and immediately disappears. And Sookie finds herself caught in a war among witches, vampires, and werewolves.
And it knocks off another one from the Sookie Stackhouse Reading Challenge
