Book Review: Dead and Gone

, by Mystee

Summary from GoodReads: Except for Sookie Stackhouse, folks in Bon Temps, Louisiana, know little about vamps-and nothing about weres.

Until now. The weres and shifters have finally decided to reveal their existence to the ordinary world. At first all goes well. Then the mutilated body of a were-panther is found near the bar where Sookie works-and she feels compelled to discover who, human or otherwise, did it.

But there's a far greater danger threatening Bon Temps. A race of unhuman beings-older, more powerful, and more secretive than vampires or werewolves-is preparing for war. And Sookie finds herself an all-too human pawn in their battle.

My Review: {This book is for adult readers} --Sookie Book #9: In this book we get another supernatural group making themselves known to the public and Vampire reality television shows.

Once again Sookie finds herself mixed up in some major stuff--more supernatural wars. Wait till you find out all the details. There's even another death at the bar, but it's not what you think. Wait till you figure it out.

Sam takes a vacation due to some interesting circumstances and we get some real background on Eric {not as much as we'd like, but it's nice to get some more}.

Sookie manages to become even more attached to Eric in what she claims to be a trick. Will she ever stop denying that she really wants him? *sigh* She also manages to get caught between two *people* that are fighting over her...but I'd say her treat afterward is more than worth getting a little scratched up for.

This book is full of everything...more conflicts...more wars...more conflicts over her feelings for Eric and the others who have been in and out of her life...loss of family members and friends.

Sneak Peek:
"I'll show up at every classroom open house and teacher conference," she said, now in a voice that was almost frightening in its intensity. "I'll bake brownies. My child will have new clothes. Her shoes will fit. She'll get her shots, and she'll get her braces. We'll start a college fund next week. I'll tell her I love her every damn day. (108)"

Wait till you find out who's becoming a mom.

Another super fast read from Charlaine Harris leaves you not wanting to put the book down and dying for book #10. I wasn't quite satisfied with how the book ended, so I'm really hoping that the start of book 10 makes up for it.

Pages: 312

  1. Great blog, I'll definitely be back!! I just started following you... check out my blog and follow me, too!

  2. Thanks :) Following you too.

  3. I'm pretty surprised to see how many people really enjoyed this book when I disliked it so much. It felt a real cop-out, with characters wandering in and out of scenes for no apparent reason (such as the wereleopard guy, what the heck was the point of including him?) plus there was no development in Sookie's relationship with Bill, and Bill was just hanging around with no real purpose. And what happened to Sookie in the was completely unconvincing. The book just left a bad taste in my mouth. The most recent book is somewhat better though.

  4. It did flip around a lot, but to me, it moved really quickly. I think Bill was where he should be...mainly on the outside and doing Eric's bidding when it comes to Sookie. I liked that she was developing Sookie's relationship with Eric.

    I'm STILL waiting on my latest book to be delivered. I'm dying to read it and it's been weeks since I placed the order. I've been thinking of buying it at Wal-Mart and giving away the copy when it finally arrives.
