Book Review: From Dead to Worse

, by Mystee

Summary from GoodReads: "The supernatural community in Bon Temps, Louisiana, is reeling from two hard blows - the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina and the man-made horror of the explosion at the vampire summit the month before in the up-north city of Rhodes. Sookie Stackhouse is safe but dazed, yearning for things to get back to normal. But that's just not happening. Too many vampires - some friends, some not - were killed or injured, and her weretiger boyfriend, Quinn, is among the missing." "It's clear that things are changing, whether the Weres and vamps of her corner of Louisiana like it or not. And Sookie - friend of the pack and blood-bonded to Eric Northman, the leader of the local vampire community - is caught up in the changes." In the ensuing battles, Sookie faces danger, death... and, once more, betrayal by someone she loves. And when the fur has finished flying and the cold blood flowing, her world will be forever altered.

My Review: {This book is for adult readers} --Sookie Book #8: Charlaine Harris does not disappoint with the fast pace start of book 8. This actually holds through almost all of the book. Two of our four weddings have taken place and Sookie gets to play a bigger part than expected in one of the remaining ones. Aren't last minute changes a blast?

We finally get to meet Amelia's dad and Sookie has a sort of date with Eric (I bet you'll never guess). This book is also full of: surprise relatives, disappearing boyfriends, strange vampires and witches, vanishing cars, more reconstructions, spell casting, cheating and so much more.

Random thought: Sookie says supper. I say dinner. However, when I was in Indiana, we always called it supper. I moved to Arizona almost nine years ago and no one says supper. Everyone says dinner. So, which is right? Maybe it's a location thing?

Anyway, we have big changes in the book for both Were's and the Vamp's. Sookie even gets to do a little saving of a few people herself.

Now, what I didn't like about this book. Yes, I have to say it, which rarely happens in a Sookie book. I didn't like the ending. Kind of thought it was random and unnecessary. Also, Sookie seems to whine a little too much about this one at seeming to want everyone at her call. Help poor Sookie. I hate that attitude, which is why I hate Bella in Twilight. ;)

Even with that said, this book is a super fast read, flows smoothly and is over before you know it. The ending didn't leave me wanting to jump for book 10, but from reading all the other Sookie books, I know I want to read it. All in all, a good read and definitely worth it to pick it up. The 4 star rating is only due to the ending, the rest of the book was definitely a 5.

Pages: 303
