3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing...., 10 July 2011
I loved the Sookie Stackhouse series from the start as each book was so eventful and with the eric/sookie romance keeping me glued to the pages, I had nothing but high praise, the same unfortunately cannot be said about Dead Reckoning. In my opinion it just seemed like a waste of a book, nothing remotely significant happened until the last few pages, so I was left feeling like the first 3/4 of the book was a real letdown. It also left me wondering how long Charlaine Harris is going to keep the series up for, dont get me wrong, im on Team Eric 100% but with the latest events unfolding and Sookie questioning aging and babies etc it seems likely that our vampire heroine might soon be coming to… Read more

After I had bought the Birthing House I decided I would give this book a go, and when I started into it, I was not disappointed, I could not put it down, until it seemed I got 3/4 of the way through the book. Exactly like the Birthing House the end of the book seemed to steer away completely from the story that held my interest from the first few pages. I was left (again) not being able to make sense of what was happening in the book and what character was really which come the end. I also think if he made a new book where the main characters wives werent either dead/disappeared and it had a good structured storyline, im sure it would be a success, Christopher Ransom has all the right… Read more
