From Dead to Worse to Best
on September 3, 2008
I have been reading this series from the beginning. Like all series there are good ones and not so good ones. The character of Sookie is always great though. But this book really tops out. I think it is the longest book in the series and the most complex. But it never lags.
We have were wars and vamp wars and, of course, Sookie is not just in the middle of it all but actually has an effect on the outcomes.
And in post Katrina Louisiana we meet a couple of people who have been displaced and also get involved with Sookie.
But the real highlight of this book is an unexpected new family connection for Sookie. I won't give anything away but it adds a fascinating side to the story. And it probably sets up plot material for the next installment.
A real satisfying read.
