WOW!! What an excellent read. I think that the Southern Vampires Series just keeps getting better. In this one Sookie joins a group of vamps representing Louisiana at a Vampire Summit, where trials, weddings, and other vampire business is planned. She goes as an employee of the Vampire Queen of Louisiana who's lands have been devastated by Hurricane Katrina, as well as having had a lot of personal problems.

In the midst of the summit all kinds of things go wrong, as the usually do and Sookie has to try to put the pieces of the puzzle together, while at the same time trying to juggle a budding new relationship with Quinn, the WereTiger, deal with her bond with Eric, and try to deal with her hatred of Bill, her first love. Add to all of this a plot to attack the vamps while they are all gathered together in one place and you get a non-stop roller coaster ride that you don't want to end. I totally enjoyed it and can not wait till her next book in the series comes out as this one leaves a whole lot of loose ends to deal with.

Another great triumph for Charlaine Harris! Telepathic Sookie Stackhouse is at it again -- this time at the Vampire Summit in Chicago. A little about Quinn and Eric. Some more about Bill - sort of. And a surprise about Tara and JB! Great book - will read again!

Ms Harris shows why she is a best seller in this action packed seventh installment of the Southern Vampire Series. We start out with Sookie doing some everyday things around Bon Temps and meeting with some old friends. She gets invited to a wedding shower which is a major social success for her. Has a run in with Arlene, who is now a member of the fast growing Fellowship of the Sun. Goes to her brother's impromptu wedding and shows that Hotshot knows how to throw a party! Gets to find out what it is like to make love to a warm blooded male (Quinn) and decides that she might be falling in love with him.

While getting ready for the vampire summit, everyone is telling her that it is a bad idea to go. But Sookie has gotten used to the extra padding in her bank account that working for the vampires has provided and she already made the commitment to work it. Besides working for the Queen with her special talent, she is to be the main witness for Sophie Anne's trial for murdering her new husband (Definitely Dead).

Louisiana will not be sending as many vampires as normal to the summit due to the damage hurricane Katrina did, their funds are depleted plus many did not survive. Eric, Pam, Andre and Bill are a few of the vampires going and even Quinn is going in a working capacity. Barry the Bellboy is also at the summit working in the same capacity as Sookie, but for the vampires of Texas.

As with any political summit there are goings on behind the scenes, secret alliances and backroom deals. Will Sookie have what it takes to survive the summit? With several murders to solve, sexual tension between Erik, Quinn & Sookie, and new supernatural group to figure out, will Sookie be able to come out of this one intact? And what is the Fellowship of the Sun up to?

I absolutely loved this book! With this series Ms Harris has taken a simple southern bar maid and we have watched her grow with each book, and this one is no exception. In All Together Dead, Sookie's eyes are opened much more and she becomes aware of dangers to her not only from the vampires and the other supernatural beings but from the human population as well. With the introduction of the Britlingens, it makes me wonder what else is out there for Sookie to find out. As with all the books in this series Ms Harris has skillfully mixed paranormal, humor, mystery and romance; if you are a fan of those genres and have not read any of the Sookie books you definitely need to go out and get them. If you have read them, then you know that you MUST get All Together Dead; you will not be disappointed, as this is the best one yet!

In her usual fashion, Charlaine Harris makes being a vampire fashionable! Love this series and anxiously await the next edition to her vamp series. She never disappoints, even if you aren't a vamp fan, you will appreciate her attention to details and wonderful imagination in this vamp series! Everyone should try at least one. I did and now I'm hooked on the series and always pick up the latest edition to the series upon its release!

All Together Dead by Charlaine Harris
Sookie has agreed to work the vampire convention for Sophie-Anne Leclerq the Queen of Louisiana. Since hurricane Katrina the numbers of the Louisiana group are smaller. Since the Queen is worried about standing trial for the death of her husband the King of Arkansas her attendance is compulsory.
The Queen is already in a precarious position, her power base weakened by the damage to New Orleans from Hurricane Katrina. Her main accuser is Jennifer Cater, a vampire who had been training to be the king's lieutenant at the time of his death. Jennifer is determined to see Sophie-Anne staked in the sun for murdering the king, although Sookie knows the Queen is innocent of the crime.
Sophie-Anne plans to put Sookie's gift to good use, having her "listen in" on the thoughts of the humans working for the other vampires at the convention as well as for the hotel itself. As usual Sookie is up to the task, even if shes not quite sure what it is. With the help of Barry the bellboy she just may figure it out before all hell breaks loose.

Sookie finds out that Bill is not all that nice of a guy. She meets a new man that sounds like in my mind the Rock to me. There is a lot of action in this book & I love that she changes blood with Eric again. I'm a big Eric fan not Bill!

It's more of the same, except a bit more predictable than some of the previous ones. I saw the ending coming a mile away. But, it's like crack in a book form. I can't put them down once I get into them. So, I have no choice but to give it five stars. If you've liked the series thus far, you'll like this one too. If you haven't, you probably wouldn't be on this page. So, this review probably won't mean much, but there you have it.

A very close second to the fourth Sookie book. The Vampire Summit was fantastic. It was nice to get back to a strictly Vampire storyline after spending so much time in the Were world. The conclusion is exciting and incredibly nerve-wracking. Could hardly put it down!

Just as much fun as all the others. Sookie is a hoot!
