Two words: boring and disappointing. The more I read this saga, the less I appreciate it. Sometimes, less is more!
How I missed the amazing world of Sookie!! I am actually extremely tempted to begin the series all over again I miss them so much. Thank God for the release of this book because I've been having withdrawal symptoms. In this book Sookie and Eric are having problems because of Eric having some kind of secret relationship going on with the Queen of Oklahoma that his maker Appius set up before he was killed. I have to say I was disappointed with this turn of events cause I loved Eric and I didn't want him to become the bad guy! Even though Eric seems to have no choice but to do something about the relationship Sookie isn't having any of it and rightly so.
The plotline was good but I felt like it was a bit broken at times like this book was just a link between two other books. Don't get me wrong I still enjoyed it immensely but I felt like it was kind of drifting from one subplot to another and all I wanted was for Sookie to have some time with Eric which she got very little of. I have a feeling this could be the beginning of the end for Sookie and Eric and I also think that Sookie became much closer to Bill and Sam again in this book so it wouldn't surprise me if something went on there in the future. For me I would love to see Sookie get with Sam just for a change of pace from the vampires who seem to be just draining her of her kindness and compassion. Although another part of me dreads a book with no vampire sex in it!!...Continua
Not much to say, this one is the worst of the series.
Not that bad.
The novel starts slowly, but the author can even make interesting the cleaning up of an attic.
Sookie is trailed to new problems with old enemies, new developments with old friends, and important discoveries about her origins.
I was eager about reading a new Sookie’s novel, but I feel like something has changed.
The first novels were sort of cheap and easy romances with spicy irony, and yes, erotic moments. This 11th adventure has a witty and strong sense for… business. I mean, now that the saga is known first for its world wide spread serial TV, the author smoothed her tones, and reaches to a future full of new readers and “politically correct” adventures.
Nothing to complain about next novels: when I closed this book I sighted and thought, as Claudia, from Interview with the vampire, said at her first sip of blood“I want moooore!!!”.
I however, am disappointed about the behavior of the male characters: Bill when he sadly expresses his unchanged love to Sookie; Alcide, waiting for Sookie on her bed as if she would immediately fall into his arms, after the bond with Eric has been broken.
And last, who’s this new, sweet and too gentle Eric telling Sookie “I’m gonna tear your clothes”? When did Eric asked permission for doing anything before???
