I did it for selfish reasons, when it was over I got depressed. Sookie Stackhouse has been an important person in my life for quite a few years and now that the series has ended and I have to move onto something else, I find myself torn as to where to start.
I did a re-read of the series and started fresh on the last three books and it was an amazing experience for me. I remembered exactly why I loved this series. I remembered why I wanted her to end up with a certain someone. I am ecstatic that she did... regardless of how much I loved her other male companions...
The last few books were darker, but it suited where Sookie was in her life. It really, really worked for me.
Thank you Charlaine Harris for providing a very entertaining series to read and for providing hours of enjoyment for me.
I named one of my cats Sookie... She is living up to the name. (less)

I didn't pick this one for so long because I couldn't find it in any book stores around it wasn't available on the Kindle in Canada. I finally broke down and ordered it even though I told myself I would wait for the Kindle version. I'm so glad I did and I definitely won't wait for long to read the next one!
I love Tricks from the first book and was so glad that she was the same character I remembered. Tiago was new and incredible! The romance and the mystery in this book was well crafted and highly enjoyable!

At times I could have shaken Eugenie so hard for the choices she had made but I see some sense managed to make its way into her brain.
It was a fast up-beat read that kept me hooked from the beginning. It had plenty of things I loved.. one of which was a lot of Dorian and another was that I finally understood what had driven Volusian.
I'm sorry to see this is the end of the series. There is so much more that Mead could have done with these characters. I really hope that she does more with them in the future.
The ending was vague but satisfactory. I can only hope that Eugenie came to her senses about her children and what she needed to do.
Kiyo is still a total @$$.. no surprise there. Eugenie should have killed him the first chance she had!

I would give the story of Murdoch and Daniela 5 stars! Murdoch being one of the Wroth brothers, I was eagerly anticipating reading this one. Also it was kind of nice to see them struggle a little more with their relationship. Murdoch not sure about being with someone always and Danii not being aloe to touch Murdoch's skin. It was a great story and I love how it turned out.
The second story was from the Alien Huntress series by Gena Showalter. This was the first time I have read any of her writing. It was enjoyable but a little slow to get going. I think it was maybe because I jumped into this without having read the other books. I liked it enough that I plan to pick up more of her work in the future.
Breean and Aleaha were a very cute couple. They both did foolish things but in the end everything worked out perfectly.

It was probably my favourite of the series so far but it still wasn't glued to the pages good. I struggled at some points to get into the story but overall it was enjoyable just not brag worthy.
Lisa is by far the best heroine of the series so far. She was strong and independent and Cin only added to her strengths. Our hero was yum yum yummy. He was definitely the most appealing so far.
The book was okay. The story was okay and I really enjoyed the characters. Adam Black sure does make these books a little more fun! (less)

When a fairy jester wants revenge on the beautiful laird Hawk he brings Adrienne through time to taunt him. But what he doesn't know is the power of true love. ( I know so corny right!)
I had a hard time developing my own view of the characters while reading this book. It was like they were blank images in my head. I wish the author would have developed them a little bit better ... and perhaps had Hawk actaully falling in love with Adrienne in a more "real" sort of way. He just seemed to be in love and that was it. At least it took her a while to come to the conclusion... and she trase dhim all the way. It was delightful!
Overall though the book was cute and no matter what I like a good time travel/ historical/ romance/ paranormal story every now and again. I will likely continue the series as I've heard it goes uphill from here.

I still love everything about the Sookie Stackhouse world!
Things are quickly escalating out of control for Sookie and the books are starting to take on a different tone.
I can't believe we have almost reached the end...(less)

Mac turned into something amazing in this book. She let all of the old Mac ways go and turned into a strong leader. It was great to see her grow into the kind of person I could like. When I first started the series she kind of annoyed me a little bit.
Barrons played a much larger role in this book. We got to know him and his past. We learned what he was and what made him the way he was. I have to say that Barrons was the reason I kept reading the books. I had to know more about him. I had to know if he loved Mac. I JUST HAD TO KNOW!
Some crazy twists and turns were revealed in this book and I feel satisfied with the ending. Nothing was really left open except for maybe Dani's story but I'm sure we will be hearing more from her in the future.
I absolutely loved this book! And I highly recommend the series!(less)

I loved the book and there were certainly some twists and turns but there was still something that caused me to think (really think) about the rating. In the end I decided that anyone that can make me snatch the next book of the series off my shelves and scour the pages to find out the results of the cliff hanger from Dreamfever probably deserves 5 stars.
Mac has gone through hell in the last four books and I'm starting to think there is no light at the end of the tunnel. The book jumped right back into the main events and Mac can't remember anything about who she is and what she's done. She only knows that she wants sex. A LOT!
Eventually Mac gets back on track and joins the front line against the Fae again. She makes some self discoveries in this book that made the read seem a little darker. She definitely isn't the same Mac we met in Darkfever. I actually like her better now. Before she just seemed so flighty and irresponsible. She seems to take her actions a little more seriously these days.
The ending blew my mind OUT OF THE WATER!
If there was one thing I wanted more of in this book it was Barrons. I was always reading just one more page to try and catch another glimpse of him! (less)

We start this book shortly after book 2 and Eugenie and Dorian have indeed gone to war. It is extremely hard on Eugenie to know so many lives are being lost so when a solution falls into her lap, and with some urging from Dorian she sets off with Kiyo to find the Iron Crown.
Eugenie flips around between her men like a wet fish. Kiyo, Dorian, Kiyo, sort of Dorian again. Although the last switch I can kind of understand. If my boyfriend was tryign to kill me I would probably run to Dorian too.... actually in all situations I would run to Dorian. I still think Kiyo is a dink.
Eugenie also begins to build a relationship with her sister Jasmine. It is kind of nice to see her getting back some of the family she has lost.
Some crazy crap goes down in this book. To be honest it blew me away.. in a good way. I just really wish that these books came out alot quicker then they do!(less)

This one really was much better then Storm Born, but such is usually the case with the first book in a series. I loved how this one ended and I will just say that is exactly how I was hoping it would turn out... can't wait to see what develops when the next book comes out!!
I still loved this one more then Storm Born but probably wouldn't have given it 5 stars this time around. It was more around 4 stars. I won't change the rating though because the first time around this book was amazing to me and now I remember why.... on word...six letters... DORIAN.
I love him... he is one of the best characters I've read. He doesn't lie about what he wants but in his own weird way he still loves Eugenie. Kiyo is still a dufus. I never liked that guy...
The things that happened to Eugenie in this book were really hard but I'm glad she made it through them and is finally doing what she must for her people.(less)

She always seems to think of somthing that no one else has. I love how the story progressed and there are certainly a number of twists and turns along the way. I will say I didn't care for Kiyo much, but I loved Dorian!
I am re-reading the first two books in the series in prep for Iron Crowned. I love Eugenie and I think she might be my favourite character of Richelle Mead's. I will leave this one at a four star rating as it was a little slow moving in places but overall still very enjoyable.
I pretty much have the same feelings... Kiyo sucks, Dorian rules! And Eugenie needs to stop being so selfish and just deal with her issues. (less)
