Review: Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris

Please note that if you haven’t read the other books some of the review may contain vague spoilers.

This one was Book 9 of the Sookie Stackhouse novels. In this book, the Were-animals join the vampires in coming out of hiding, Sookie gets in deeper with her Grandfather Niall and the politics of the Fairies, and Jason Stackhouse is once again a suspect for murder, this time the victim is his unfaithful wife.

Dead and Gone was a quick and easy read, though this book was a bit less fun than some of the other books from the same series because it was darker with its focus on the Fairy War. The direction that the romance between Eric and Sookie was interesting, however Sookie’s reaction though mostly effective lasted overlong and took on a whining undertone for me. I appreciated that she did I thought that the final fight scene was well-written and it and the final chapter wrapped most things up quite nicely. The loose end that is left is clearly a tie-in to the next book (or at the very least a thread left for a future book) which I will look forward to reading, when it comes out in paperback.
