Charlaine at her best. If you love the other books you'll love this one too. On the money totally!!

Oh dear. I used to love the Sookie series so much but, with each additional book, the series appears to be nearing the "Jumping The Shark" moment.

With this one the main problem is a lack of any single plot. There are multiple plotlets, multiple updates on all the running plots, but nothing that makes this a book rather than a filler. Disconcertingly what also runs through this book is a list of people who Sookie wishes dead. I know she can't still be the little innocent we met back in book 1 but really, she's starting to be someone I don't wish to know any more.

So, all in all, an essential buy for us Sooke fans but far from the best and an ominous pointer to a steady decline in quality.

WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!! I held off reading this until my holiday as a special treat. What a let down. The whole thing felt like 'another one churned out', plus there were things that didn't make sense. Surely Eric's maker was the ancient tattooed one who 'met the sun' books and books ago? It's so bad I think I even enjoyed reading 'Eclipse' more. Seriously.

As a keen follower of the True Blood series and so excited about 'Dead in the family' being released but was really disappointed by this latest instalment. I don't know whether its because I thought it was the last in the series so was expecting so much more, but I found it boring and unnecessarily drawn out. She just seem to tie up loose ends that didn't need tying! And explaining for pages about how the vampire us countries were divided up, its like she was setting up the scene for a good story line then kept changing her mind about the direction of the story. The last 1/4 picked up and was good but otherwise nothing happened.

I will still follow the the series as I loved the other books so much and I hope they improve, but if Charlaine Harris has lost her mojo for our Sook lets hope she just puts all her effort into wrapping up the series and giving it the finale it deserves.

Some of the other reviewers feel Dead in the Family isn't as exciting or bloodthirsty as previous books.....well it was enough to satisfy me! Lots of loose ends tied up where all Sookies friends and family were concerned. The twist came when we found out who Eric's brother was before he "died" and the Shreveport Werepack had an interesting storyline. I read it over twice to make sure I hadn't missed anything! I look forward to the next installment to find out what happens between Bill and his "sister", if Eric manages to get rid of Victor and did Dermot really help murder Sookies parents?!

If you are a fan of the Sookie Stackhouse series then you absolutely have to buy this book as most of the usual characters that we know and love are there and a few new interesting ones pop up too, but......... the action sadly isn't there. It only got exciting in the final chapter and i was a bit dissapointed when it was all over very quickly. The majority of this book is just details about the various family ties everyone has and quite a lot of background story. But saying that, any Sookie fan will love it and whilst i didn't hate it, it's not my favourite in the series.
