P.S This review is more of a rant of how much I love The Sookie Stackhouse Series!
Where do I start with this book! First off I LOVE this series of books, I think Charlene Harris is a wonderful, amazing and talented writer. I know I'm sounding WAY over the top but I can't praise this series and it's author enough!
So, I'm a True Blood fan! I loved the first season of True Blood and was encouraged by a friend to read the series. I read the first TEN books this time last year and LOVED them. Dead Reckoning is the 11th books in the series. Now, I have to admit it took me a while to get into this book for some reason, I just couldn't quite get into it but I continued with it as I loved the previous books. Halfway though I got into it and am so glad I stuck with it! There were loads of OMG moments!
*Spoilers: Some of my OMG! moments!*
*First of the "Porch Scene"! For all you True Blood fans you may have heard of the exciting "Shower Scene" between Eric and Sookie in Book 4. Well the "Porch Scene" was supposed to rival that scene but in my opinion I don't think it does but it is a WOW bit i.e. I wish I was Sookie in that scene LOL :)
*BILL!!! I just wish he would get the hint! Sookie loves ERIC, Eric loves SOOKIE, no one loves Bill!!! Seriously I know he loves Sookie but he betrayed her, end of, so move on!! I will get really annoyed if Charlene makes the characters Bill and Sookie get back together. TEAM ERIC all the way!
*The Faeries! I wouldn't trust Claude as far as I could threw him but I love Sookie's Great Uncle. I feel really sorry for him but again, you can't trust these faeries. I'm thinking we will find out what they really want with Sookie in the next book, and I don't think it will be good.
*We have had hints that Sookie's gran wasn't all sweetness and light before but now we finally know what happened between Sookie's gran and Fitan. OMG granny and fairy getting it on LOL! Mr Catailades: WTF where did that come from, he has known Sookie all her life, since she was born!! So mush more to that story which I can't wait to find out about!
MY MAJOR OMG MOMENT!!!
*Eric's God damn "marker". He's dead but I wish I could kill him again cause of what he has done. I can't believe he found a mate for Eric. All I can say is Eric needs to find a way out of it! Sookie and Eric 4Ever!!
So this kinda isn't my usual kind of review but I just had to gush about this book and the series. If you haven't read the series I advise you do, there amazing! Also if you love the TV series but haven't read the books do cause in my opinion the books are 1000X better than the TV Series!
