Sookie Stackhouse Book10
Author: Charlaine Harris
Narrated by:Johanna Parker
Charlaine Harris delivers the 10th novel in her number-one New York Times best-selling Sookie Stackhouse series, which has been adapted into the smash hit television program True Blood.
Finally settled with Viking vampire Eric, Sookie finds normalcy just as chaos surrounds her. Sookie’s former lover Bill, her boss Sam, and even Eric are struggling with family problems. Then things get really interesting when the werewolves tell Sookie an ominous presence is lurking.
I love every book in this series but this book was missing something, maybe it just felt like more of the same, but about the narrator Johanna Parker is just terrific as Sookie and she makes all the characters come to life.

I have really enjoyed the Sookie series, loved it really, but I'm thinking it's time to bring the Southern Vampire to a close. If you've read the Harper Connolly and/or Aurora Teagarden mysteries, you'll know that Harris is fully capable of bringing a series to a satisfying conclusion. This episode was entertaining, Sookie's a hoot as always, but the tale doesn't have any new twists or turns, just more of the same conflicts any girl dating a man in the throes of corporate upheaval might expect. I'm waiting for her to fall for Sam and live happily ever after.

I love this series, don't get me wrong, but this book was weak and lacking. The storyline was barely advanced from the last book. The remaining mysteries are not enough to make me excited for the next one. The characters are little changed, or advanced, from the last book, and the secondary characters were used effectually.
I guess I was just looking forward to this book so much,that I was bound to be disappointed. But, I know that this book could have been better. As always, the narrated was superb. I just wish that the book was as good as the rest of the series.
