This review is from: Club Dead: A Sookie Stackhouse Vampire Mystery (Sookie Stackhouse / Southern Vampire) (Paperback)
This third book in the series is quite an improvement on the second. I started this one, hoping that the idea of Sookie and her vampire, Bill, would be able to develop their individual characters. They can and they do.
No-one can accuse Sookie of being a dumb blond and in this story her resolve is tested to the full. Built into the storyline is the usual mysterious murder (actually, quite a few murders) and, thanks to the ability of vampires to heal themselves (usually but not always) Sookie's injuries sustained in the line of duty are also treated in the same way. Having suspended belief in the whole concept of these novels, the reader should allow the author her freedom to build on the almost 'superhero' status of the girl.
I think it works. The book reads well and is easy to go through. Entertainment value is high so what more do you need?
