Ok, I admit it. I’m a huge Sookie fan. The books, the show on HBO-everything. It is a wee bit embarrassing as I don’t usually hop on the pop culture band wagon but there you go.
Sookie is still struggling with the blood bond with the vampire Eric and the discovery that she is part fey. Excited to learn that she has a great-grandfather in the world, she soon realizes that all is not well in the fairy world and once again Sookie finds herself fighting for her life and for those around her.
There are a few twists and turns that I wasn’t expecting in this book! I enjoy the quick pace, light mystery and the southern humor. Sookie is flawed and is always berating herself for her low moral character-this makes her very relateable to readers. There is a real sense of doom with this book almost from the get-go. The Fellowship of the Sun is growing in its hatred speech and old friends have fallen hard for their message.
Dead and Gone is #9 in the Sookie Stackhouse/Southern Vampire series by Charlaine Harris. I think it is important to note that the series needs to be read in order to be able to keep up with what is happening. There are also several short stories that Charlaine Harris says should be read in specific order with the books. If you read a title and you don’t remember reading about what they are talking about-most likely it is in a short story. 2009, 312 pages.
