Deadlocked by Chalraine Harris- Review

Oh man... only one more book???  NO WAY!!  It is perfect I finished this book tonight right now because season 5 of True Blood just started right now!  Here is the goodreads description:
With Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), in town, it’s the worst possible time for a body to show up in Eric Northman’s front yard—especially the body of a woman whose blood he just drank. Now, it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who’s out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down.

This book was really a great lead up to the final book. Some characters stories are coming to a close and a lot of plot lines are finally getting some answers.  Personally I am sad that the series is about to be over but I suppose then again it is best to end it on a high note.. not after people are just totally sick of it. 

Spoilers to come:  I am so glad the fairy business is done.  That went on and on... but Claude as the bad guy?  I don't even know how to feel about that.  I am also sad about how Sookie's relationship ends with Erik.  It felt hurried.. like I don't know it should've happened differently to me.  I do think that Sookie will end up with Sam and that is fine with me.  I like Sam and he and her both have some supernatural abilities which makes them understand each other better. 

This wasn't my favorite Sookie book... and after reading other reviews some people really disliked it.  But I like that things are coming to a close.   I read a lot of Stephen King who never packages things up in a neat bow so it is nice to finish a series that does!  I went to a Charlaine Harris book signing by the way.. you can see pics here.

I am very nervous about what to expect in the next book... another whole year!!! GAWWWWW!!


  1. OOh nice review! Kinda kicking myself that I read the little spoiler paragraph, but I was warned, I just didn't care!

    I have yet to read this one and it still might be a few books til I do, so maybe I'll forget those spoilers, but I doubt it!

    Once again, lovely review!

  2. Great review! I skipped the spoiler part because i still havent had a chance to read this book, there are just so many books to read and NEVER enough time :(
    Anyways... I love to read your reviews! I dont comment much (im trying to fix that) but your blog is one of my favorites!!!
    Thanks again!!

  3. Have you read the final book? I am kinda scared to read it because of the MANY bad reviews that I saw on Amazon the first day that it was released. I know that a lot of people aren't happy when one of their beloved series ends... but geesh. I may wait until the summary book comes out and read it and Dead Ever After together.
