USER REVIEW WINNER: Dead In The Family
by William Kostakis - September 2nd, 2010
Dead In The Family by Charlaine Harris
Reviewed by Molly
Dead In The Family, #10 in the Sookie Stackhouse series, is definitely no let-down. Loyal and dedicated fans who have read the previous books in the series will not be disappointed.
The novel is still action-packed and realistic in its depiction of Harris’ supernatural world, however in this particular book, but there’s been a change: you’ll meet a slightly more world-wary Sookie. This in no way detracts from her original character – in fact, this growth of character is what makes her easily likeable and real.
The intricacies of Sookie’s relationship with Eric are explored, and Bill is by no means absent. Nor are her fae relatives, of which there are some who seek revenge on Sookie.
Indeed, Sookie must accept and heal from the devastating torture she experienced in the previous novel under the hands of her fae relatives, and the deaths of her fairy godmother, Claudine and her new friend Amelia’s werewolf boyfriend.
Overall, this book most definitely lives up to expectations and there is much room for an 11th – loyal fans and readers will be very pleased with this latest wonderful addition. (5 stars)
