Review

“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

In the penultimate novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, Sookie Stackhouse must work with her first love to clear her current undead flame of murder...

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 Compton, 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 has set out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down.

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.

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.

By E. A. Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on May 4 2012
Format: Hardcover
Prepare to say a fond farewell to Sookie Stackhouse, because "Deadlocked" is the penultimate volume of the Southern Vampire series.

But even if there's only one more book, the twelfth book about the telepathic waitress and her vampire and/or were connections is a pretty solid one. It's a rather sad book in places, since Sookie's relationship to Eric seems to be cracking into pieces, but it has that lovable balance of unpretentious Southernness mixed with vampire/were stuff.

A conference between Felipe and Eric goes horribly awry when a young woman (whom Eric had taken blood from) is found dead outside Eric's home. Unsurprisingly, Sookie and Eric are both suspects, and Sookie suspects that Eric is keeping something from her. Even odder, her death is linked to the fae -- and Sookie is sure that she was hired to lure Eric.

As she juggles family matters, a nosy were, a birth and a forthcoming wedding, Sookie also starts investigating the girl's death. She also has some other problems to deal with, like a stranger's interest in the cluviel dor and the arrival of a vampire queen who wants Eric. But unraveling these conspiracies will reveal some of the nastiest betrayals Sookie has ever encountered.

As always, Charlaine Harris' writing is like slipping into a soft, well-worn sweater that smells vaguely of magnolia trees. There's just something very pleasant and homey about her prose, and this novel is somewhat smoother than the last few book -- the narrative can switch fluidly from descriptions of the fairy world to "House Hunters International." Trippy.

However, "Deadlocked" has a sharply bittersweet flavor as well, with Sookie finding out the hard way that lots of people can leave you heartbroken (not just lovers!).

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 ›
