"There is no need for me to sing praises for this book"
The activities of the supernatural community in and around
Bon Temps has become vital news to Sookie Stackhouse. She
is a friend of the local Were pack, Blood bound to the
local vampire leader, her brother is a werepanther, her
boss a shifter and her room mate is a witch. Then to make
things all the more complicated her great-grandfather is
The humans know about the vampires, they came out years
ago. However now the humans are going to find out about
Weres. It has finally been decided that the time is right
to show their exsistence. Things seem to have gone well
until Sam, Sookie's boss gets a phone call from his family
and then a body of a werepanther is found in the parking
lot of Merlotte's.
Sookie wants to find out who could have done such a
horrible thing but while she is busy concentrating on that
she doesn't see the real danger she is in. A Fae war has
started and she is the main target and the enemy will harm
anyone who gets in their way. Human or Supe, they don't
care and they are mean.
I can hardly believe that this is book nine in the series.
In some aspects I feel the story has been going on for much
longer but in other ways it feels so fresh and new. There
is no need for me to sing praises for this book because
like all of the previous Sookie Stackhouse novels, it was
amazing. Twists and turns, Supernatural and Human,
everything you come to expect from this great series and
Sookie looses a lot in this book, some of the loss is worse
than others but the title of the book 'Dead and Gone'
really does have a lot of meaning. I hope that Sookie will
get over the losses and come out strong like she always
does. Although I wouldn't be surprised if the events in
this new release leaves behind some damage.
The only thing I hated about this book is the end. Why?
Because now I know I have to wait another year before the
next Sookie book comes out.
