Lidé v Bon Temps, s výjimkou Sookie Stackhouseové, toho mnoho o upírech nevědí. A vůbec nic nevědí o vlkodlacích. Aspoň dosud. Avšak nadpřirozené bytosti se rozhodly odhalit obyčejnému světu svou existenci. Všechno klape až do chvíle, kdy je jedna z nich nalezena zmučená blízko baru, v němž Sookie pracuje. Sookie má obavy, že místní lidé nejsou až tak tolerantní, a rozhodn ...more

It’s not the worst book ever written as some reviewers say, but it’s not that good either. Charlaine Harris failed to deliver what we all wanted to read about and over-delivered on what we didn’t really care for.

What I mean is most of us keep reading this series primarily to find out who Sookie finally settles with. No matter what team you were on – Eric, Bill, Quinn, Sam – you expected some kind of resolution, at least temporary, to her love life. We got none of it. There was so little develop
This was an okay Sookie story, although it was a bit dull in places.

Sookie was once again in trouble in this story, although I have to say that putting lemon juice in water pistols to kill fairies was quite clever!

The storyline in this was about Crystal being killed, and someone trying to kill Sookie, as well as some romance with an old favourite! The first half of the book dragged a bit, but the second half was better, and I really liked the romance!!

The ending to this left Sookie still in dang

This book is action PACKED, Sookie needs protection from the fairies.

Strange deaths, horrible deaths. And confusion of Love.

It’s weird read this series because somethings happened in the TV True Blood and somethings didn’t. And once in a while they sync up.

The whole fairies part still kind of baffles me. And why is Sookie still hung up on Bill only when he doesn’t something nice for her. Saving her life and all of a sudden he is a hero, Erik did that same thing and yet

will start off by saying I love this series. I started it long before the TRUE BLOOD HBO series came out so I have been faithful from the beginning, and have always waited anxiously for the newest book in the series. I also reread the series each time a new book comes out to keep refreshing. Most were great book. A few of her more recent ones left me a little hungry for more as they didn?t really hit the spot but they were OK. I was excited for this book hoping Miss Harris would really expand u ...more

The best thing I can say about this book is that it has a lot of Eric in it. Otherwise I think it's possibly the worst of the series.

Charlaine Harris has a slow, rambling style of writing, which I happen to enjoy in a nice, fat 800-page novel. When you're publishing 300 pages of widely-spaced type in a large font, you need to be more focused in your storytelling.

This book seems like half a novel. There are several plot lines left hanging, and the ending is rushed, as if Harris saw her deadline a

OMG OMG OMG!!!! This book is the reason I came up with six stars.

I love Sookie, she is one of my favorite female protagonists. She has just the right amount of supernatural abilities combined with just the right amount of struggles with that power. Her life is hugely out of her control, yet she manages to fight for what little she can have.

I love Eric. He is one of my three favorite vampires (the others being Thomas Raith from Jim Butcher's Dresden Files and Quinn from Keri Arthur's Riley Jense

I just finished Dead and Gone and I must say that I loved it. I agree with previous reviews that it was much darker than previous Sookie's but I see that as a good thing. Life is changing Sookie and she is shedding some of her idealism, which is something all of us must face to some degree or another to find our own truths.

This books has many painful losses, but it also has a significant amount of growth on the parts of many of our main characters. I too am anxious for the next book if for no ot
Allison (The Allure of Books)

Well, I am thrilled that Eric and Sookie's relationship is back, sorta. But nothing is really ever how it appears in this series, and none of their time together seemed 100% normal to me, like there was something important we still need to know. The more blood they exchanged the more I worried that Eric will end up dying at some point. I hope not :( Although he is controlling to a degree that would piss me off royally in the real fits his personality and job description

It wasn't a bad story, I'll say that much, but the series does seem to be weakening. The problem for me is the change in focus from vampires onto every other kind of supernatural being you can think of. In the first couple of books of the series, I loved the stories and characters, couldn't get enough of them... and then came werewolves and shifters, I didn't like them as much but I was just about willing to accept them. Then it just got worse and worse. I found that I didn't care about werepant

This is probably my least favorite of the Sookie novels, but that is not to say that I didn't enjoy it. Harris is back with her witty dialogue and elaborate cast of characters, but as the story arcs away from the vampires, it loses something.

The last 50 or so pages move so quickly and there are too many references left open for the future. I like that the previous Sookie books could stand alone. This one gave me the sensation that Harris is just priming us for the next book, which was a bit dis

The scattered book 8 set up for this one nicely & much was resolved. This book was more on track, as usual & about the same caliber. It should be read in order. It's a soap opera, so you need the background to appreciate how our heroine works through her various difficulties. All in all, more fun reading candy.

I would say that as a general "life rule" it would be a good idea to keep out of immortal wars when you are a human. You're gonna get your ass kicked while all the supernatural creatures can just heal, and can't easily die. Of course, Sookie is still kind of a dumbass, and finds herself in the middle of a fairy war. This is after being in a vampire war and werewolf war.

It was kind of weird reading this book. Perhaps my memory is a little skewed but in most Sookie books there's always a lot going on and Sookie is hardly home. However in this book it was interesting in that Sookie was in Bon Temps the whole book. She went to work and tended the garden all while the supernatural stuff came to her. It felt a bit slow to me but Eric was in it a lot and that's more than enough to keep me happy. I'm certainly curious as to hearing his explanation for him being MIA in ...more
This seems to be the point in this rather long series where the author was losing interest in these characters but was still being encouraged to produce books by her publisher. While still entertaining, they are becoming cookie-cutter books, with predictable characters in predictable predicaments solving their problems in predictable ways.

This should have been the book to deal with the “coming out” stories of the Were community, and instead it gets hijacked by fairy drama. So, while I would have
Bob knows I love a good popcorn read and they don't get much more corny Charlaine Harris' Sookie books. Reading about Sookie's misadventures with the vampires that live out in the open is always a good way to spend an afternoon in the sun. So finding out that the newest addition to the Sookie series came out on Tuesday had me more excited than I am comfortable admitting.

Four hours later the book is finished and I'm relaxing in the heady afterglow of a fun tale well spun. Yet, was this a Southern

I had conflicted feeling about this one. I hated how there came to be so much angst from Sookie about Eric. This is the one where he "tricks" her into a vampire marriage to try and protect her from Felipe de Castro.

There's some boring stuff about Jason and his wife, Arlene does something stupid and boring, and then there is the whole fairy war thing, and that just never appealed to me much. I think it was dumb to kill off (view spoiler). There is a reveal about Sookie's

4.5 ★s

Dead and Gone is the ninth full-length novel in the Sookie Stackhouse series by popular American author, Charlaine Harris. The weres have decided to come out to the world, and the supe community holds its breath, waiting for the reaction, which is mixed, but a lot less negative than might have been anticipated. There are incidents, of course: Sam’s mother is shot and Jason’s wife is brutally murdered, although whether this is a reaction to weres, or something more personal, is not clear.

Oh Sookie! I just can't get enough of this girl's life! Charlaine Harris' latest Sookie Stackhouse book is "Dead and Gone". Fans of this series won't want to miss the madcap happenings in a Louisiana where vamps, weres, fae, and other creatures roam. Harris infuses this series with humor, drama, sex, mystery, and enough memorable characters to keep it going ad least I hope so.

Sookie's life used to be so, well...normal. Now she's blood-tied to a master vamp who wants to sleep with

Holy heck on wheels, Vampire Bill managed to redeem himself! Who knew?!?

I felt like this was very much an "in-between" book that could send the series in any number of directions in the future, but it was still very entertaining and well worth the read for anyone who loves the series.

Since the book is so newly published, I'm reluctant to say anything more that might be too spoilerish so I'll leave it at this and strongly urge anyone who hasn't read it yet to do so as soon as possible!!! :)

Sorry to say this one was really disappointing. I think Charlaine Harris' writing has come a long way since the start of this series, but I think Dead and Gone is a considerable step backwards, and really has me thinking this series should be given an honourable end...meaning sooner than later.

Obviously there's at least one more book coming in the series. Sadly, I'll be hoping for one last reasonable attempt, rather than waiting with great anticipation as I have for some of the previous books.

More brain candy from Harris. The TV series is a lot (sorry) meatier, but this will help to pass the time until the new season in June.

The Publisher Says: Except for Sookie Stackhouse, folks in Bon Temps, Louisiana, know little about vamps-and nothing about weres.

Until now. The weres and shifters have finally decided to reveal their existence to the ordinary world. At first all goes well. Then the mutilated body of a were-panther is found near the bar where Sookie works-and she feels compelled to discover who, human or otherwise, did it.

But there's a far greater danger threatening Bon Temps. A race of unhum
