Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris

Genre:  Adult Paranormal Romance
Sookie Stackhouse Series, Book 12

With Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), in town, it’s the worst possible time for a body to show up in Eric Northman’s front yard—especially the body of a woman whose blood he just drank.

Now, it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who’s out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down.

When I say I absolutely love the Sookie Stackhouse series, I mean the first seven or eight books in the series.  While I wasn't a huge fan of book ten and eleven, I figured I needed to see this series to the end.  And as expected, this book unfortunately did not bring the dazzle and glam that are in the earlier books.

I can't really say much about the plot without ruining it for those who haven't read earlier books.  I can say Sookie is with Eric.  And Eric has been my favorite Sookie-man-candy since book four.  So, it's no surprise that this book plus the last two left me disappointed (you'll know what I mean once you've read them).  But the southernness and humor is still in this one.  The plot was a little disappointing and lacking.  Also, absolutely zero steaminess/romancing occurred in this book; so don't expect it when you pick this one up.

I'm definitely glad the series is ending next year with the last book.  And I really, really hope it goes out with a bang.  I have a slight idea of what could potentially happen.  But my fingers are still crossed...

  1. If you get that far into a series, it does seem hard to not know how it finishes. I've actually never read and of the Harris books, but I've heard a lot about them.
    thanks for honest review,
