No one can deny that the Sookie Stackhouse series is popular, but this book (book 8) is a hodgepodge of elements rather than an over arcing plot. In From Dead to Worse readers finally learn where Sookie's mind reading power comes from, there's a werewolf war, and another vampire king makes a move to take over the Louisiana territory, which has been significantly weakened by Hurricane Katrina. But all the conflicts are solved quickly, and largely without much involvement from Sookie. This is a plate-cleaning book for the series, and the start of a slate of books where reader absolutely must read earlier volumes in the series first to understand the significance of the events within.
It does deserve a place in public collections, in the interest of series completion and meeting the needs of readers seeking out the current slate of popular fiction.
Contains: Sex, violence
