Product Description


“Harris is a master at taking several paranormal worlds and plunging them into our reality with humor.” Tulsa World

“The Sookie Stackhouse series seamlessly mixes sensuality, violence and humor as readers experience the people of small-town Louisiana through Sookie’s eyes.” Boulder Weekly

Product Description

Felipe de Castro, the vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town. It’s the worst possible time for a human 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 set out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Story Moves On June 10 2012
By Bernie Koenig TOP 500 REVIEWER
Sometimes when I look at other reviews I wonder if we all read the same book.
This book is definitely not filler. Too much happens and it happens to set the stage for the series end. A whole bunch of themes come together here, some of which get resolved. This sets the stage for the final book in the series.

First, These books have little to do with the tv series. I stopped watching the series when it left the books and became something of its own. I prefer how the characters get developed in the books much more than in the series, which is way too sensationalistic. Of course, if I had never read the books, I would probably love the show.

Harris is a good writer. So if certain things happen, or do not happen, in the books, there is a good reason for that. While I admit not every book in the series is great, if you read them all you see a clear development of character and plot.

Sookie gets involved in all kinds of things because of her ability to read the minds of mortals and because she cannot read the minds of supernaturals, which is why she dates only supernaturals.

In this book issues about the Fey, vampires and weres all come together.

The plot hinges on the fact that Sookie has the cluviel dor---the fairy supernatural charm given to her by her grandmother.

Some people just want it, others want her to use it for their own benefit. But Sookie has to decide. And, in part, her decision is the focal point of this book.

In short, thanks to how things get resolved in this book, I can't wait for the next one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dive into deadlocked May 20 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Eric lovers be aware, your view of the lovable viking may change as you dive into Deadlocked. Sookie doesn't seem to have time to breathe in this book between murders, births, fairies running around, werewolf drama, and multiple visits from Vampire royalty. While the series has been slowing down in momentum in the last few books, this one seems to be picking up the pace slightly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story. Great author. Nov. 4 2012
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I finished this book in a day and a half, averaging half the reading time of the other books in this specific series. And just like all the other books, I personally enjoyed it. However, it was very clear that Charlaine Harris was trying rush wrap ups to avoid a 14th addition (which could have been all too possible if more detail was added to specific plot lines). I certainly didn't find it to be a filler book but I was disappointed in the magical montage/cluviel dor/failyland clinchers. There is a lot more detail in this book, than previous editions, covering a lot less time and much less important or exciting issues. Yes, there was murder, deception, dangerous flirtations and uncomfortable (from Sookie's viewpoint) realizations. But those were just blips. Still, it was an enjoyable read from a very talented and accomplished author. Whether or not you've read the previous chronicles, it's definitely a "good read" and worth the $18.50. Note: all anyone has to do to avoid potential emotional fallout from the Sookie/Eric blahs (Bill fan here - as far as vamps go) is read a few Harris interviews or like her facebook page. She's said all along that Eric is NOT a typical hero, or a hero of any kind (he's cruel, selfish, jealous, murderous, unapologetic, etc), and that Sookie's smart enough to know this. That blunt admission by the author can only lead to a few logical outcomes. And yes, it seems like the most logical of those outcomes will occur in some form, at least for a short time, in the final book (let's face it, Sookie can never be happy for long). And that's something I'm looking forward to reading, followed by several of her other series'. As far as True Blood (the show LOOSELY based on the book series) is concerned, that's a Horse of a Different Color altogether. Read more ›

2.0 out of 5 stars No Forever Afters - Filler Book May 2 2012
By S. Voth
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Frustrating that there is always a hint of peace in love and never quite gets there! More drama, but not in the way you want it to play out Grrr! Just another filler book, the only thing resolved in my opinion is the Fae but other than that, such a huge disappointment! SPOILER ALERT! I wish we could read an episode where Sookie chooses to be with Eric forever, to even turn for him so they have an eternity. She always screws it up somehow!

2.0 out of 5 stars it's almost over! May 9 2012
as so many have stated, it's another filler book. I truly feel that since the series took off on HBO, the books have just been another promotion and grab for cash. There is no meat to these books anymore and they just feel pumped out. if you've invested in the 11 previous books, get this one used or at your library and stick it out but DON"T pay full hardcover prices for another fluff and wishy washy addition to this series.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Ordinary Girl June 4 2012
It's becoming more and more apparent that Sookie is about to lose those attributes that make her "special". Her main appeal has always been her ordinariness in an extra ordinary world. She's just a regular girl with telepathy and some fairy blood after all. My impression of this book is that the author is preparing us for the end, when Sookies loses those qualities that make her different. Now that the fairies are gone, she will no longer be influenced by their "fairy essence" and now that Mr. Catalades is willing to help her gain control of her telepathy, well, that's gone too. What's left but a regular life with the "almost" normal Sam? I'm just guessing of course and I hope that I am wrong. Honestly, I'd rather she end up with Bill than Sam.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sookie Novel
This book was great. I wish that Charlaine was going to keep the Sookie Stackhouse books going. There is only one more left. As soon as I get the book I can't put it down.
