Review: Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris

May 27, 2012

A Sookie Stackhouse Novel

With Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), in town, it’s the worst possible time for a body to show up in Eric Northman’s front yard—especially the body of a 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 out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down

Cindy's Review...
I was frustrated with this addition to what, in the beginning, was an endearing series. Charlaine Harris had a wonderful concept, a fabulous writing appeal and a great continuation in this action packed tale. But with "THE END" coming upon us, I felt more of a "Let's tie up loose strings" type of attitude with this book. There was plenty of action, but NO Sookie love. Everyone says "We love you Sookie", but she just ran around tying up every open relationship. And this saddened me! After all the stuff she has put up with, betrayal, death threats, injury after one stopped and said "But what does Sookie want?" And the one thing she had that could help her with her hearts desire, the ONE thing...well...we all know that I'm not gonna give away that little jewel! So it's hurry up and wait time folks...the last in the series won't be released till May 2013. I wish I had set this book aside for a year and waited for Dead Ever After~the real end to this series!

Normally at this time I give you a funny quote, but I don't feel I can do that with this book. So instead I leave you with the final quote: "Sure Sam," I said, very quietly."Another day."

  1. I liked this book... though I could tell it was really just wrapping everything up. Giving the readers closure.



I just love hearing what you have to say. Drop me a few lines. 8-D
