Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Sookie's still living with her two fairy-kin. Someones trying to kill Sookie....big fucking surprise! She finds a secret letter from her Gran. Eric's hiding something, Pam is awesome, Bill still gets on my nerves....fucking pest! Victor is still around....Oh and Bubba makes an appearance!
The first half of the book was uneventful...was like watching paint dry actually. But the last 100 pages or so were good...especially up til the end! I loved the battle at the end, nice and bloody! Eric was great...when he was around. I think my issues with this book is the dragging out with the fairy bullshit. I just wish the whole agenda gets resolved and whoever is really out to get Sookie will just get it done already!
What I found annoying was Sookie and her vacillating! She plans Victor's demise for how long? Then when the smoke clears she's "uneasy" about the results....actually pissed is more accurate. I just wish she would make up her mind and woman up! She's still her funny, sometimes bubbly self and at times judgmental. Especially when it came to Alcide....what he did was fucking dumb but saying that she didn't like who he has become....wah?? He's the head of his Pack....he has to have some kind of superiority...some swag! He can't be a push over still pinning for you, waiting for you to leave the fucking vamps alone can he??? I'm starting to question you Sookie......Hello!! Don't get me wrong...I do love Eric! And I want them to work. And Pam is just great but I just don't think they are conducive to her needs. Well what she believes she needs...a.k.a. family...kids, what not!
Although this was not one of my favorites of the series, Im still excited to find out where CH will take us with Sookie's story! Im PRAYING that Sookie doesn't end up with Sam! PLEASE PLEASE! Don't let it be that! I'm still holding out for Quin since at least he can give her kids and a normal lifel....for the most part.
