Format: Hardcover
When you have a life like Sookie Stackhouse's, you make a lot of enemies. And in Charlaine Harris' eleventh Southern Vampire novel, "Dead Reckoning," a bunch of people with grudges against Sookie make her life a little more interesting. It's a much smoother and more satisfying ride than the previous novel, but the developments involving Eric are rather disappointing.

Sookie is busy at work when someone firebombs Merlotte's -- and though no one is injured, she worries that it might have been a hate crime against Sam. And at home, she uncovers a shocking fact in an old letter from her grandmother, as well as a mysterious faerie artifact called the cluviel dor. Additionally, Eric is acting kind of strange, but he won't tell Sookie why that is.

But it becomes clear that someone is out for Sookie's life -- thugs attack at Merlotte's, assassins show up at her house, and an old enemy pops up wanting nothing but her death. And that may not be the only threat to Sookie, since the vicious regent Victor is trying to provoke Eric into ruining his position as sheriff... meaning Sookie has to get him first.

"Dead Reckoning" is a much smoother, less disjoined novel than the last Sookie Stackhouse novel, and in many ways it's a welcome return to form. We've got some gruesome killings, a few mysteries, some charmingly embarrassing situations (Sookie hiding naked in Bill's coffin), and the looming spector of vampire politics making everything more complicated.

Harris' prose is still a pretty even mix of the dark'n'creepy and the down-to-earth unpretentiousness of Sookie's everyday life, and she inserts some genuinely funny moments into the story ("We fol­lowed the bondage Bobb sey Twins across the crowd ed dance floor").

Just a filler in the series. Hope the next one is better. I loved the other books but this just didn't cut it. Throughout the entire novel, there is only one intimate scene with Eric. I only say this so you can see how very little character involvement this has with Eric in reference to their relationship. It is in nearly the exact same standstill situation it had with the last book. The only new thing this book plays out is Sandra Pelt's final acts of vengeance and that was so lackluster it nearly doesn't warrant mentioning. I hope the next one is better and I hope Sookie's relationship with Eric finally gets solidified.

I read a few reviews before I read the actual book and although I agree with some of the arguments I would say their ratings are a little harsh. I agree that the last book (Dead In The Family) and this one were both filler novels which can be a bit frustrating. The main reason I feel this way is because her relationship with Eric is at a standstill and has been for sometime. I love Charlaine's writing regardless of series or characters but the one thing I have always found that really separates the Sookie vampire novels from others is that Sookie is at least realistic in her relationships. She knows when to move on and she knows when something isn't going to work. She is her own person who values being mostly human - never really wanting to become a vampire. Don't get me wrong - book number four and it's Eric and Sookie relationship was my favourite. However after reading Dead In The Family and now Dead Reckoning I feel there is a serious need for change in this said relationship. I am glad Charlaine has finally planted the seed of change - promising that the next novel answer some serious Eric and Sookie questions if not even an ending to the relationship we all love so much. Would I be sad if that was the case -I would have said hell yeah before reading the last two novels but now I am not so sure...if it spices things up and let's Sookie start having some fun (like she did in past novels) then I am all for it!Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
I like many others was not overly impressed by #10 book in the series. I was underwhelmed here again after hoping that the last book's content and writing quality was a 'one off' event. this book AGAIN felt like i was being strung along to give my money and for not much in return. the plot lines dragged with few big events (i even re-read #10 the day before i started 11 to get into it all!). the usual violence but not the same drama as usual or balance of romance/intimate moments. I wonder where CH is going with this series because it is beginning to feel directionless. I am thinking maybe she is riding the fame and ease of the hit show on HBO and investing much less in her books. the first 8 of so (before her big discovery) were much more magical and absorbing than lately. I know it takes a ton of work to write and put out a book but as a reader i'm not feeling 'it' anymore. I think her next book out, i'll wait for the paperback or just borrow it from my library before getting excited and anticipating and paying more to CH for a hardcover that I will be unsure if i will like and is worth the money she asks. sorry CH, keep trying?!
