At this point in the Sookie Stackhouse series, book #12, I am at a point in reading where I never thought I would arrive. I could in fact read these books til the day I die. I completely and utterly infatuated with Sookie and the other characters in these books. I really hope Harris never stops writing these books. I would love to read them til Sookie is turned vampire or old and grey - like I will be one day. It is honestly like having coffee with an old friend.
It absolutely amazes me that Charlaine Harris can keep Sookie so prim and proper, yet pull her into crazy situations. I love that she would put any of her friends before herself, but somehow manages to survive each time.
I find it truly sad that she is struggling from one relationship to another, though I suppose dating a blood sucker has it's natural hazards. One being that he is dead. The other that he needs live people blood to survive. The other that he is a well respected vampire that others would like to kill or have a hold over. The list goes on with danger.
This is the first series I have ever read and then bought again in order to reread. I have yet to reread a book all the way through. I remember them too easily. These books will be the first, and maybe the only, ones I continue to read and read and read.
Thank you Charlaine Harris for an awesome series!!
Summary -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.
