When a dead body shows up on Eric’s lawn, it’s up to Sookie to not only clear his name, but figure out who framed him in the first place and why.
I read the Sookie Stackhouse novels a couple of summers ago and absolutely loved them. When I enjoyed the tv series of the book series (True Blood), though not quite as much as the books. Then the third season of True Blood wrecked my favourite book and I gave up on it. Then I read this book and I wondered why I was still reading this series at all.
Simply, it feels like Harris is just going through the motions. The spark that made me fall in love with this series is no longer there. It feels like Harris is just pulling twists out of nowhere instead of planning things out. I hate it when series drag on purely because they’re popular.
Also, any enjoyment I might have gotten out of some hot scenes with Eric was trashed when they didn’t happen. Come on! You’re taking all the fun out of this series! If there isn’t vampire sex, why am I reading it? (Kidding…mostly.)
