While not my favorite of my series so far, this one still kept me hooked. The dissolution of the relationship between Bill and Sookie is heartbreaking. One note about this book - it mentions events that will have you wondering if you missed a book in the series. Take it from me, you didn't. The events mentioned take place in the short story, "One Word Answers" by Charlaine Harris. This story appeared in the Bite anthology (I believe) but can be found in other places (nudge, nudge, wink, wink). Read it first so you don't think you're losing your mind! :)

Definitely the best so far in the entire series. Quinn is hot and sexy (although annoying in his constant use of "Babe" -- doesn't he know that word is now reserved for Ranger?), Bill is in the background, and there are new faces to compliment the old gang.

Best of all, this is laugh-out-loud funny. This is the first book in the series I've been able to say this about, and I'm darn glad to be able to.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series, including this book, but felt it was the weakest so far. While not graphic in the way of LKH (something for which I am grateful), Sookie's lovelife has taken some confusing twists and turns, not all for the better. I also found this book to be overly concerned with "getting everyone in" to the point that some characters felt like they were simply doing cameos to make sure they weren't forgotten. Still, nicely done, a well structured mythos, light and funny - a must for series fans, for new readers, start at the beginning - there are revelations in this book that will undermine your enjoyment of earlier books.

This book answers a lot of questions that the first few books open up and leave hanging, and ties up many loose ends. It is definitely a book to read before "giving up" on the series as it seems many PaperBackSwappers are doing. In this book, Sookie travels to New Orleans to clean out her Cousin Hadley's apartment; to not give too much up with this, we meet New Orleans witches, find out what Sookie really is, and revisit Debbie Pelt's family. It was a very enjoyable read!

As with all Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse books, this was frolicking good fun. This particular "episode" offers some new dimensions to what we know about Sookie, and adds to what she has "on her plate". Fom the interest of the magical and supernatural, this book also ups the ante and pushes us furthur into the power levels and structure. I leave the synopsis up to the book advertisement, so see jacket flap etc. As always, I recommend reading these novels in order of printing, but is enjoyable either way.

This is book #6 of the Sookie Stackhouse series. Like the previous books this one is excellent and exciting. Sookie has to trave to New Orleans to settle her cousins state. Bill seems nervous and has convinced her to let him join her. There is a new man in her life and an old one who does not want to admit he is in love.Sookie meets the queen and discovers a heartbreaking secret that will change everything between her and Bill.

I highly recommed this book for any Sookie fan. Do not start here because it will be hard to follow.

It's more of the same, but that's okay, because with this series more of the same is definitely not a bad thing. I have to admit, this one was slightly less predictable than the last few, since I'm so used to the pattern that I had those ones figured out well in advance. With this one, I figured out some of it, but didn't see the rest coming. In any case, these books are so much fun to read that it doesn't even matter to me if I can figure the ending out early. The journey getting to that point is too entertaining. If you liked the others in the series, you'll enjoy this one as well. If you haven't read them yet though, you really should start with the first one. Even if you've seen the TV show, there's so much new and different stuff in these, you can't pick up a later book and just know everything that's going on.

Don't think you're insane when you read this book if you know nothing about the murder they talk about in every chapter, but have already read books 1 through 5 cover to cover: there's a short story by Ms. Harris that deals only with that mystery! It's called One Word Answers, and you will need to find the .pdf online and read it before you read this otherwise absorbing entry in the most fun vampire series ever.

The book suffers from the absence of the key plotline described above, but is otherwise interesting and entertaining, like all the Sookie books.
