I know. I've rated every book in this series a three - I liked it - and they're decent fluff. Thing is, while they don't have me dancing for joy, they're seriously perfect fluff for when I'm down with an injury and can't write or paint much.

There is a value in books I just like as fluff, and this series nailed it perfectly. Were it possible to rate the series itself, I'd go with a four or a five because it kept my attention comfortably through healing up after bad stupid, and it was fun.

Just what any sensible doctor would have ordered. ( )

This book was entertaining just as all the others have been. I was reasonably happy with how the author ended the series. I will miss Bon Temps! ( )

'I had a fleeting second of incredulity that there'd ever been a time I hadn't known the extent of the supernatural world. And here I sat in Lucky Bar-B-Q with two witches, two part-demons, a telepath, and a weretiger.'

Plot

Sookie Stackhouse started out as an ordinary waitress with an extraordinary talent. Now she's part-owner in Merlotte's bar, wife to the Vampire Sheriff Eric Northman, and has survived several attempts on her life.

After using her cluviel dor to bring Sam Merlotte back from the dead, Sookie starts to feel isolated and cut off from the world. Eric is keeping his distance and Sookie has no idea where things stand with him. As she's getting on with her life, Sookie has no idea that there are people out there intent on taking it away from her. But there are also people ready and willing to help her in her time of need.


My Thoughts

Since I bought the first Sookie Stackhouse book on a whim, I've been hooked on the series. I read the first few within a few months, and got really impatient waiting for the next one's to be delivered. I've always loved Sookie's character and was always worried for her when more and more danger was thrown her way throughout the series. I've followed Sookie through several relationships and attempts on her life and have always find myself wanting more.

It's my understanding that thirteen books were always planned for this series. I have to say, as much as I love the series as a whole, the last few books started to lose the magic for me. There's only so much that can happen during a series, so at times the last few books felt more like a story was being dragged out and I didn't enjoy them as much.

The way this book is written is different to the other books in the series. The story is told from different points of view; mostly from Sookie's point of view, but also from that of the people out to get Sookie. At the start, you have no idea who the people are, since all that you're given is a vague description. As the story progresses a few familiar names emerge, and this was a nice twist since I thought Sookie had seen the last of them. Some of the names are kept a secret until the end, and I really enjoyed the twist of who was behind it all. I liked how this was done, it kept me guessing who the people were, as they were people that I'd met in previous books. All is revealed towards the end, and the different narratives tie together nicely.

A big part of the Sookie Stackhouse series is the Romance. Sookie has had a few different boyfriends during the series, and I'm sure everybody enjoyed this aspect of the story, especially Sookie's relationship with Eric. I'm sad to say that there wasn't really a lot of Romance going on in this book. There is a lot going on in Sookie's life, so I suppose she's too busy for a relationship, but this could be what was missing from this book for me.

I did enjoy the story, but compared to the previous books in the series, particularly the first few, this book was disappointing. It's never taken me more than a few days to read a Sookie Stackhouse book, and this one was no different. The only difference is that I read this quickly because it was an easy read and uncomplicated page turner, and the previous books really gripped me and left me wanting more. I've seen a lot of reviews for this, and most of them are similar to my rating. I've also seen a lot of people that weren't happy with the way the series ended, and I have to agree to some extent. The ending seemed quite abrupt to me, stopping in a strange place. I was happy with Sookie's choice of men at the end of the book though, since she ended up with who I always wanted her to be with, but I'll leave it at that.

Not as bad as some have said, but not quite the ending I expected ( )
  Colleen5096 | Oct 29, 2020 |
Dead Ever After is the last in the Sookie Stockhouse series and reads similar to that of the first. Unlike the proceeding books, Dead After After gives a voice back to Sookie as well as various characters whom all somehow come together; even though the ending may not fully be what the reader expects.

This book is dedicated to the loyal readers who have followed this series from beginning to end.  Some of you were reading the books before True Blood, and some came after, but you were all amazingly generous with your ideas, speculations, and votes on Sookie's future.  There isn't a way I could make  all of you happy with the ending of the series, so I've followed my own plan, the one I've had all along, and I hope you agree that it's fitting.

The New Orleans businessman, whose gray hair put him in his fifties, was accompanied by his much younger and taller bodyguard/chauffeur on the night he met the devil in the French Quarter.  The meeting was by prearrangement.
