3.0 out of 5 stars Like an aero chocolate bar, 1 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Deadlocked: A True Blood Novel (Sookie Stackhouse Book 12) (Kindle Edition)
So I have read it in less than a day, which implies that there is at least some galvinising prompt to keep turning the pages - However, I am left feeling strangely unsatisfied.

It is as if I have bought myself a family sized aero and because I left it out in the sun it has melted to half it's size, frankly a bit of a disappointment.

The frustrating part is that the premise was there for a really strong mystery, but the conclusion felt forced and inadequate, a means in which to reach book 13.

There are some fantastic premises, but sadly I feel that the characters we have grown to love simply "phoned in" their parts in the story. There was very little Eric, not much Bill, a fleeting Sam and a literal phone call from Quinn. Sookie was more homespun than usual and although it echoes the original incarnation of the character, her growth seems thwarted.

This is the first book in which I have felt let down. It is not 'bad' in comparison to some vamp lit, it's just not as good as usual. I'm viewing this as the " tie up" book so that the final can be explosive, all encompassing and a fitting finale... Please Ms Harris?

I felt the same way, although i LOVE all the Sookie books this one left me feeling a bit sad and dissapointed. Can't believe have to wait another year to find out what happens with the ERIC thing!!!!

I totally agree... Could not wait to read this and was really disappointed at the end, i just felt like there was no passion or violence.. Every bit of action that started to stir, i thought ooh yeh we gonna get some action.. But then it was over before it even started.. I am hoping that book 13 is gonna be big as i felt like this book was left hanging..
