What an ending.
This was the very last in the Sookie Stackhouse books and I was actually rooting AGAINST Eric. Which is unheard of.
That man was a real dink by the end of this series. Which I guess was to be expected because he’s a vampire.
But all in all, after reading the entire series all in a row, I kind of didn’t hate the fairy storyline as much as I used to. It was shorter then I remember, which was nice, and I was really shocked by how the book before this one ended.
Like SCARED of what was going to happen in the next book because a beloved character got murdered.
BUT everything turns out okay and I LOVE who Sookie ended up with.
It made the most sense to me (and y’all know I love sense when it comes to romances.) and it was a truly loving relationship.
So…after all these years: THANK YOU CHARLAINE.
You are magical.
It was a fun spring and summer of reading this series once more.
(Editors note: [I’m the editor, so who knows why I wrote that] I read this LAST summer. That’s how far behind I am on these. We are well into November of 2019 guys. And I read this series summer of 2018. I’m trying so hard to get my shit together. It’s almost working. Also I thought I had way more books in this series to read, turns out I stopped one before the ending. How? I don’t know. But I really have to stop doing that. *I’m looking at you Outlander. Divergent. Robert Galbraith books.)
Eric Northman on children:
Happy Friday! Constant vigilance!
Who wants a bag of bones?” he said, with absolute sincerity. “I don’t want to hurt myself on the sharp edges of the woman I’m bedding.” —Eric Northman, Sookie Stackhouse series.
(One of my favourite quotes! I love Eric.)
All right. Champion of all champions, I finished the rest of the series and have finished now the recently published one.
Basically, this book was set out to ruin Sookie and Eric’s relationship. She catches him sucking some broads neck and gets pissed. Then the King of Louisiana/Arkansas/Nevada comes up…in order to ruin their relationship and figure out why his regent is dead.
Sookie’s fairy grandfather, Niall, comes back after closing up Fairy and tries to figure out who put a spell on his son Dermot (while still being a douche to Dermot. Makes me want to clobber him.).
Sookie gets a weird compact from her grandmother in a sewing dress pattern package (otherwise known as a cluviel dor) and fairies are again interested in what the hell is happening over at the little blond telepaths house.
I loved it and am deeply surprised by the ending and can’t wait until the next one. Again, girl needs to write faster.
(Impressed I posted on the date I set for it?! ME TOO! So it’s 10:30 at night, but still!!!! I MADE IT!!! Constant vigilance dirt bags.)
In true nerd fashion I started reading Deadlocked like a squealing school girl I was so excited. A new Sookie book!?! Sign me up! Whoopideeweeeee!!! (Insert a visual of me racing down the street a la Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.)
I was already having a great summer drooling over the television show (which, let’s be honest is a little lacking this summer even though there were some touching moments and holy shit! Moments. I just started watching it for Alcide and Eric just to keep interested and man am I glad I did. Those boys worked it this summer and the ending was killer. Heh heh.)
Anyways, so I start Deadlocked and start thinking to myself…who the H.E.L.L. are all these people? I’m super confused (not surprising since I think George R.R. Martin has completely broken my brain. I don’t even remember what I do half the day anymore) and getting frustrated.
This is where I make the ultimate nerd decision: I have to re-read the entire series.
Y’all should know by now my love affair with Charlaine Harris runs deep and luxurious. Meaning this was no horrible and weary task for me.
I’m so happy that I spent this summer reading the books again because I got to enjoy my favourites and it was a fantastic refresher for things and people that aren’t in the show!
Although it got a little confusing every Sunday when I would watch Trueblood and be like Ehhh….waaaaiiit….what’s happening?
Separating the two was hard, but I pushed through.
I can’t even remotely believe how many characters I forgot about. Insanity.
I lied. I didn’t write to on the fourth. But truly, I was super busy! SPOILERS AHEAD.
Anyway, as I did promise a review on the series ending of the Harper Connelly books, here it goes:
In the series ender Harper and Tolliver are forced to look into their past and solve their sisters disappearance.
They also have to explain to their little sisters that they are dating and that some day they will get married. Bizarre.
Not to mention that Tollivers ex-drug addict dad is back in the picture. And he’s being a complete creep.
I found that this was a nice ending to the series and tied up all the loose ends. But I doubt that I’ll read about these characters again because the relationship was just too icky for me. I enjoyed the rest of it though besides that.
And lucky for me a new Sookie book is out so I can wash away my doubts and boohoos with Eric! Yay!
Yeah. She did it. She took it that next step of “ew”.
In this book she took it to like 82 different steps of “ew”, actually. Harper and Tolliver are set to find out what happened to a bunch of boys that have gone missing in the dead of winter. I can’t even tell you what happened because then (obviously) the plot is ruined and you won’t even read it.
Just put on a helmet for all the horribleness and hopefully that’ll block it some. She’s a fantastic writer and skirts around the big bad so you know what happens but you don’t want to stab out your minds eye.
Unless of course the fact that she makes the two leads get it on and they’ve considered each other brother and sister since their teens bothers you. It gives me a serious case of the heebeejeebees even though I know, I KNOW they are not blood related.
But they have two sisters that have a blood line with both of them! GROSS! …I need to keep reminding myself that I love her. I love Charlaine and her writing and this book is as bad as it gets in all cases and the rest are good and …and..and…
Okay. I’ll stop.
