Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris
Sookie Stackhouse has one last adventure in store.
Life has taken her from a waitress in Merlotte’s Bar, Bon Temps, to part owner; from social outcast to the heart of her community; from a vampire’s girlfriend to the wife of one of the most powerful vampires in the state. She has survived earthquakes, revolutions and attempts on her life. Sookie has endured betrayal, heartbreak and grief . . . and she has emerged a little stronger, and little wiser, every time.
But with life comes new trials . . .
The question is, in the end: who will love, who will live, and who will be dead ever after?
Seriously, who is NOT waiting for this book? This is the end of a long running series and I am eager to get my little hands on it and see just how it all ends for Sookie and the crew. A lot of people who have not read this series so far because it there really was no end in sight, can now pick it up and not worry about cliffhangers, etc. I was a little confused on Amazon yesterday when I saw that Charlaine Harris is actually releasing something ELSE in the Sookieverse after this book. Kind of a compilation of the futures of all the characters. I kind of thought that was the point in making a "final" book in a series, so now I worry that we are going to be left with loose ends in Dead Ever After.
I am going to be sad to say goodbye to all my Bon Temps friends. I could say, at least I have True Blood, but I love the books more. True Blood has kind of veered WAY off the storyline. (Naked, blood covered Bill, anyone?)
