Praise for #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse novels
“It’s the kind of book you look forward to reading before you go to bed, thinking you’re only going to read one chapter, and then you end up reading seven.”—Alan Ball, executive producer of True Blood
“Vivid, subtle, and funny in her portrayal of southern life.”—Entertainment Weekly
“Charlaine Harris has vividly imagined telepathic barmaid Sookie Stackhouse and her small-town Louisiana milieu, where humans, vampires, shapeshifters, and other sentient critters live...Her mash-up of genres is delightful, taking elements from mysteries, horror stories, and romances.”—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
“The series continues to be inventive and funny with an engaging, smart, and sexy heroine.”—The Denver Post
“Blending action, romance, and comedy, Harris has created a fully functioning world so very close to our own, except, of course, for the vamps and other supernatural creatures.”—The Toronto Star

For some reason, the same person keeps on trying to **Spoiler Alert** kill her in a half dozen ways throughout the book. This does not forward the story at all. Gang of thugs here, gang of thugs there, even one of her multiple escapes which is supposed to be exciting is very disjointed and bizarre. Charlaine Harris's usual style is to have a one or possibly two major incidents when someone is out to get Sookie with minor incidents to back up and question motives. This one is very overt and feels like the author made no attempt to integrate these incidents into what was going on. We know the attacker, we know what and why they are doing it, where is the mystery?
I was astounded that a major, major thing between Sookie and Eric is treated as an afterthought. Something that would, in the other books, have created all kinds of feelings and expression fall flat at a pancake. We've been building it up about for 10 books, but oh well, let's talk about it lamely over a coke and a True Blood and be interrupted within a few lines. They could have been discussing whose turn it was to take out the garbage. **Spolier Alert End**
I couldn't find one happy moment in this book. Not one. Sad and dreary is the order of the day.
Dead Reckoning begins with Sookie, with the help of Dermot and Claude, cleaning out her attic. Of course she finds something special in the midst of all the trash, something which will change the way she looks at the world and her relationships. In the meantime, things seem to be deteriorating with Eric as they try to take action against Viktor. And in the midst of all this action, someone is anxious to harm Sookie and sends several gangs of thugs to take her out. So, as usual, there is a lot going on!
Unfortunately Pam is on a short leash so we don't get her funny, snarky comments, and Bill is rarely evident (though important when he is around). It's difficult to know if Harris is really trying to end the series, though it does seem as if Eric is on the way out. My guess is that Sam and Sookie will end up together at some point, and I'm okay with that. All in all, the series is still enjoyable though maybe not as fun. But I'll keep reading!
