A Review of Dead Reckoning, book 11 of the Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris

In this most recent installment in the life of Sookie Stackhouse we see a new side to the Fairy race.  To me this was one of the more fascinating books in the series.  Both because of the relationship between Sookie and her Fairy Kin, but also because Sookie becomes a stronger person desiring to take action to protect those she loves and faces the fact that she might lose her life in doing so.   There is loss, love, and friendship in this book that is so moving you cannot help but be swept into the story, even if you have never read a Sookie book before.  And while fans of True Blood might not understand the dramatic differences between the book characters and their TV counterparts, there is so much more magic, fairies, and Vampire politics to be had.

I don’t want to give away any spoiler type information here, but the best part for me was the secret of Sookie’s telepathy is finally revealed and it is sure a shocker!  There are some twists and turns that I would never have expected, and was quite happy with the outcomes.  Like many fans of Charlaine Harris’s work I am eagerly awaiting the publication of the next book in the series which is to be Deadlocked due out next spring.

    I like the review, I have to admit I have never been a fan of her work, but you are making me curious

  2. It’s a great series, Deacon. As long as you don’t judge it by that crap they call a TV show…

    It *is* a great addition to the series and I’m really loving how some of the big questions that have spanned the whole series are finally being answered.

    Looking forward to Deadlocked and finding out more about the fairies, and Niall’s agenda in particular.

    Couldn’t agree more about the TV show. Season 4 was atrocious.
