Let's talk about: Charlene Harris and the Sookie Stackhouse Series
Okay, this book is already pretty over-exposed with the hit TV show True Blood on HBO, but what the hell.
Now I'm not going to lie. I was a HUGE fan of this series and waited PATIENTLY for it to make it's debut on Sunday nights. I loved this series sooo much, that I actually re-read Dead Until Dark, Living Dead in Dallas, Club Dead, Dead to the World, Dead as a Doornail, Definitely Dead and All Together Dead about five times.
I was hooked. This series was paranormal crack. But did anyone else notice, around the time True Blood finally appeared, Ms. Harris' books started to lack?
Still being a fan, I signed up to get the next copies at the library and continued on with the story hoping and praying it would turn around. Gotta say, I wasn't very impressed with From Dead to Worse, Dead and Gone and Dead in the Family.
Last night, I finished Dead Reckoning and had to smile. Although I don't think that this book really compares to her earlier works, I've got to say, Ms. Harris churned out a believable, yet not epic, story. There was some suspense, some sexual tension and even some vampire sex. :-) What more can a girl ask for? Well, maybe some serious plot evolution?
