Once again Sookie finds herself in the middle of it all.
Merlotte's has been attacked and Sookie is a witness. The
police have decided that the anti-shifters are to blame but
Sookie has other ideas. If that is not enough to keep your
attention, Sookie must also deal with the Vampire's and
their hierarchy, and finds out that she may be the cause of
some conflict again.
I am one of the devoted fans that have followed Sookie
right from the first book. DEAD RECKONING does not
disappoint at all. Sookie is her usual feisty self. Always
searching and fighting for those that she cares about. I
really liked that Sookie keeps maturing through this series
and continues to do so in this book as well. She finds
herself looking at her life as it is now and where she
wants it to go from here. Along with all the action and
chaos that is happening in this book we learn a lot about
what makes Sookie tick. It was nice to see some of the past
characters come back and visit some more. I always enjoy
seeing old faces reappear in a series, it makes the book
more fun to read.
So much is going on in this story... from Eric to Sandra
Pelt and even a baby shower. There were questions that were
answered but there were new questions brought up as well,
all keeping me entertained and wanting more from Sookie and
her friends. It was nice to find out more about Sookie's
heritage and I have to say I loved seeing Bubba show up in
This was a fast paced and entertaining read that had me
glued to my seat and turning those pages to see just who
would show up and what was going to happen next. I cannot
wait to see what the next Sookie adventure will be.
"With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie
Stackhouse witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar
where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be
two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the
anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but
her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover,
Eric Northman, and his "child" Pam are plotting to kill the
vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn
into the plot--which is much more complicated than she knows.
Caught up once again in the politics of the vampire world,
Sookie will learn that she is as much of a pawn as any
ordinary human--and that there is a new queen on the board...
