Oh Sookie! I just can’t get enough of this girl’s life! Charlaine Harris’ latest Sookie Stackhouse book is “Dead and Gone”. Fans of this series won’t want to miss the madcap happenings in a Louisiana where vamps, weres, fae, and other creatures roam. Harris infuses this series with humor, drama, sex, mystery, and enough memorable characters to keep it going ad infinitum…at least I hope so.
Sookie’s life used to be so, well…normal. Now she’s blood-tied to a master vamp who wants to sleep with her (among other things), her grandfather the fairy (as in fae, not gay…and don’t yell at me for that description) warns her that her life may be in danger, her brother the werewolf is acting very strangely…OK more than normal anyway, and now the weres are ‘out’ and someone’s killing Sookie’s furry friends. Her sister-in-law is one of the first to go and even though Sookie didn’t care for her, that doesn’t mean she’s not determined to find out who killed her and she KNOWS it wasn’t her brother! Sookie investigates between fae turf wars (she’s a target because of her grandpa), vamp bonding ceremonies (she’s a prize and tool to be used), and human paranormal-hate groups (she’s a hated friend of the weird ones and just too weird herself). Hope that’s enough to pique your interest cuz there’s alot more where that came from!
If you follow this series, go get this book NOW. RIGHT NOW. You won’t be disappointed. If you haven’t been following this series, what the heck are you waiting for? If the mysteries don’t interest you, how about the paranormal creatures? The humor? The sex? The drama? Charlaine Harris really does have something for everyone in this series and “Dead and Gone” just made me want more.
