Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Bestseller Harris mixes humorous Southern-fried fantasy with biting satirical commentary in her seventh novel to feature Sookie Stackhouse, the bubbly telepathic barmaid from Bon Temps, La. (after 2006's Definitely Dead). Sookie attends an all-important central U.S. vamp summit on the shores of Lake Michigan as a "human geiger counter" for Sophie-Anne Leclerq, vampire queen of a Louisiana weakened by Katrina and who will be tried during the event for murdering her king. Sookie knows the queen is innocent, but she's hardly prepared for other shocking murders, not to mention protests by the Fellowship of the Sun, a right-wing antivampire movement. Her sleuthing skills, along with those of her new telepath friend, Barry the Bellboy, are put to the extreme test. Harris juggles a large cast, including several romantic contenders for Sookie's heart, with effortless exuberance. HBO's True Blood, based on this addictive series, is scheduled to begin its TV run this fall. 11-city author tour. (May)

Format: Hardcover
Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in Bon Temps, Louisiana, with telepathic abilities. Over the past couple of years, Sookie has become used to being surrounded by all types of creatures humans used to believe were only myths. Vampires have come out-of-the-closet and humans are still getting used to their undead existence. However, humans do not as yet know about shape shifters, changelings, faeries, or others.

Sookie was betrayed in her not too recent past by her long time vampire love, Bill. Sookie's other vampire lover, Eric, is no longer the man she cared for. Yet Sookie has managed to find herself in another relationship; this time with a shifter (weretiger). The only thing left for Sookie to deal with now is the long-planned vampire summit in Rhodes.

Sophie-Anne Leclerq, the Queen of Louisiana, has been a refugee in Baton Rouge since Katrina hit her home base in New Orleans. At the summit, Sophie-Anne will be on trial for the murder of her husband, Peter (King of Arkansas). Sookie is to attend the trial with the queen, not only because she is the only witness to Peter's death and needs to help clear Sophie of the charges, but also to stand by the queen during negotiations of supplies and read the minds of any surrounding humans for possible treacheries.

Secret alliances and back room deals are happening everywhere. Many are testing Sookie's abilities and intelligence or are planning on ways to own her. The Fellowship of the Sun may have spies within the summit as well. Yet through it all, Sookie is well aware that even more betrayal is going on deep within the shadows. This is one summit that many people (human, vampire, and were) may not walk out of.

This is another thoroughly enjoyable installment in this series. Sookie Stackhouse has got to be one of the most likeable characters in vampire fiction. In this installment she is taking part in a "Vampire Summit" bringing together a number of our favourite characters from past books, including Barry the Bellboy, Queen Sophie, Eric, Quinn (yum) and of course Bill the bad ex-boyfriend. (I must admit I have a soft spot for Bill!) This is an action packed installment full of murder, mayhem and marriage! I can't wait to see what Ms. Harris comes up with next!

In need of money, Sookie Stackhouse accepts Louisiana vampire queen Sophie-Anne Leclerq’s offer to pay her to attend a summit up north. Sophie-Anne will be on trial for murdering her husband, the king of Arkansas, but she will also be conducting other business. Sookie’s telepathic skills would determine who Sophie-Anne can trust. A murder at the summit’s hotel, however, plus other secretive activities, makes Sookie realize that something even more deadly will soon happen.

Although I watched most of the TV series, this is the first Sookie Stackhouse novel I’ve read. It was interesting to see how some of the personalities, like Pam for instance, are portrayed a little differently, as are some storylines. Also, I don’t recall the complexity of politics and social protocols among vampire queens and kings being covered that much in the show.

I’m happy that the TV series stayed true to Sookie’s character, though. The brave, self-sufficient, and somewhat isolated Sookie is well portrayed in both mediums. All in all, the book was an enjoyable read. It was nice to read a story set outside of Bon Temps to see how Sookie copes with big northern cities. Author Charlaine Harris incorporates a welcome realistic edge to the book by dealing with the ramifications of Hurricane Katrina.

My only quibble is that the ending was a little too quick. There is a huge, cataclysmic event near the end, yet Sookie doesn’t really reconnect with the major players, although she has her reasons. She makes it back home on her own and the story ends. I would have liked to have seen more from other characters, but I suspect this probably happens in the next installment. I’m not surprised that Harris has so many fans. There is something endearing about the characters as they try to cope with all the weirdness and perpetual danger in co-existing with vampires and other nonhumans.

By J. Scully TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Feb. 3 2010
Format: Mass Market Paperback
As a long-time fan of the Sookie Stackhouse series, I'd been anxiously awaiting All Together Dead, the 7th installment in the Southern Vampire series for some time. Sadly, I was mostly disappointed by this latest effort. My first reaction was that it felt as if the book had been written by someone else. All the great characters are still there, but they just don't sound quite right. This certainly didn't stop me from reading the book, but I didn't burn through All Together Dead as fast as I normally do with the Sookie novels, and I often had to re-read bits of dialogue before they made sense. In the end, it was a good story, but getting to the end wasn't as enjoyable as it normally is with Charlaine Harris's books.

Ms. Harris did a good job of recognizing the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina and working her story around it, but that doesn't change the fact that parts of the book didn't quite flow. The stories that were took place back in Bon Temps felt truncated, and the overall mystery was full of big, glaring clues that left me frustrated with the characters for missing them.

All that aside, there were still some great things about All Together Dead. Sookie has grown quite a bit in these last 2 novels, and I think that's important for the future of the series - things need to advance in order to keep the stories interesting and believable. I love that she has a new roommate, and that she's becoming more of a prominent figure in the supernatural world. I enjoyed getting to know Barry the other telepath, and liked that he and Sookie figured out how to work together to achieve better results. And I'm actually a big fan of Quinn, so I also enjoyed the growth of their relationship as well.

Overall, the character development was great, and I'm eager to see where Harris will take Sookie and her supernatural crew in the future, but All Together Dead was not the best installment of the series.
