Dead To The World, Book 4

by toonboi on Apr 1, 2010

The supernatural world is further opened up to include witches and others, (a surprise when you learn about the siblings Claudine and Claude), when Sookie Stackhouse drives upon a half naked man running on the side of the road, on New Years night. Turns out that the nearly irresistible man is not a man, but the vampire Eric Northman, and he has no memory of anything. After the New Years party at Merlotte?s, Jason Stackhouse goes home with Crystal, a shifter, and disappears. Things are suspicious because his flashy truck is parked with the door left open and there?s blood stained on his property. The people of Bon Temps think the worst. Sookie is the one who will end up doing all the police?s footwork, again. What choice does she have? Jason is the only family she has. Sookie has broken up with the vampire Bill Compton, after he answered the call of his maker Lorena, (cheated on Sookie). She has rescinded both Bill?s and Eric?s invitation. Her introduction into the world of Weres and Shifters is blown wide open when she learns of the nearby community Hotshot. Her previous relationship with the hot and muscley Alcide does not hurt any either! Their leader Calvin Norris is very interested in Sookie, but she has feelings for Alcide. Her feelings for Calvin are familiar and homey. Now she is torn between Bill, Eric, Alcide, and the persistent advances of Calvin. (Not bad for a girl who has not had any boyfriend or sex until just recently.) Sookie and Bill?s relationship is scarred deeper by the events that happened in Mississippi. In Bill?s rescue, they were trapped in the trunk of a car, were Sookie was feed upon and raped until Bill came to his senses. Considering Sookie?s childhood molestation from her uncle, this is irreparably detrimental. It was Debbie Pelt who locked her in with Bill. What will Alcide do if he ever finds out? Will he see Debbie?s true dark nature? How much of a threat to Sookie is Debbie? Cursed, Eric is a completely different vampire, (and ooohh so yummy!) Eric is forced to hide out at Sookie?s house, because the witches, who cursed him with amnesia, are looking for him. The coven?s leader, Hallow gets too close when she shows up at Merlotte?s with her brother. Also there are wanted posters all over town with a $50,000 reward, with Eric?s picture on them. There are some traumatic and very surprising events for Sookie, for those she works with, and for those she loves. After reading the last sentence of ?Dead To The World?, you will immediately pick up ?Dead As A Doornail?, to find out what happens next. You will not be able to resist! With the strong leadership of Pam, what will later be known as the Witch War, will either be the cure to Eric?s amnesia curse, or the former Eric Northman will remain dead to the world.

Oh Eric, what a Viking

by LJvirgo on Jan 29, 2009

Love the series and enjoyed the focus on Eric and the changing dynamic between he and Sookie. Louisiana and vampires, who doesn't like that?

Another great Sookie Stackhouse story, full of great characters and a riveting plot.

Fun & funny, mind candy with heart

by MizLoo on Apr 22, 2007

I love this "Southern vampire" series, by a talented & prolific writer. The contining saga of barmaid/waitress Sookie Stackhouse, who stayed a virgin a long time because of the "disability" of being able to read minds, and who doesn't mind sharing with the reader the things she "heard" would-be lovers thinking, is funny and very human. Sookie discovers that vampires are ideal lovers because of the blessed silence that comes from having no idea what they are thinking, The series is set in the contemporary South, with the twist that vampires have "come out" since the invention of synthetic blood that makes attacking humans obsolete, or nearly so. Harris imagines a world in which fearful creatures of legend (were-wolves, vampires, other were-beings, maenads, etc) have fully realized lives and social structures that intersect those of humans who may be intrigued, revolted or just confused by encountering the supernatural at the supermarket or strip mall. Three-dimensional characters, laugh-out-loud funny dialogue and solid plotting consistently held this reader's interest.
