Praise for #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse novels
-It's the kind of book you look forward to reading before you go to bed, thinking you're only going to read one chapter, and then you end up reading seven.---Alan Ball, executive producer of True Blood
-Vivid, subtle, and funny in her portrayal of southern life.---Entertainment Weekly

-The series continues to be inventive and funny with an engaging, smart, and sexy heroine.---The Denver Post
-Blending action, romance, and comedy, Harris has created a fully functioning world so very close to our own, except, of course, for the vamps and other supernatural creatures.---The Toronto Star --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book is okay and continues the Sookie Stackhouse novels, but I found it lacking when it came to the excitment that I found in previous books. At no point in this book was I really gripped by the story, I didn't even worry that Sookie was in danger of being hurt or killed like she had been in previous stories. I'd recommend it if you just want a really easy read to pass the time but don't expect it to grip you. I hope the next book is better as I love the Sookie Stackhouse novels in general,and I hope that this doesn't mean they're losing momentum all together.

I've enjoyed the previous Sookie books but struggled to finish this one. It was incredibly dull - and the sudden revelations about Claude towards the end came out of nowhere. Not sure I'll bother with the next book, even it if it the last.

Like the other readers, I devoured this in hours so it's not all bad but the impetus to read is partly due to the hope that something will happen! The plot is very superficial and unfulfilling. This is a bit like book 10 - it's a filler. Eric and Sookie's relationship is conveniently and not very believably evaded by Harris who will return to developing it another stage. Frankly, with all the Supes' problems, Sookie's hectic and non-hectic schedule and her life constantly being in danger, I find it hard to believe she ever leaves her house. Aside from a couple of moments of true stupidity which were totally hard to believe (how is it that Sookie no longer reads people's minds whether she wants to or not anymore?) Despite this, it's typical Sookie and fans will read it regardless. If you're a sort-of-fan, maybe wait till it's cheaper or get it from the library.

I excitedly pre-ordered the 12th Sookie Stackhouse and couldn't wait to recieve it, and I finished it on the same day as I was so eager to see what happened to Sookie and her collection of friends and lovers!

I wasn't disappointed although you could tell there was a lot of wrapping up of more minor characters that appear in the stories, but aren't overly signifcant, ready for what I now know to be the last book. This book does flit between the differing Supe groups and it focuses on Sookie and her inner turmoil particularly being pushed and pulled between them all, lost loves and her future happiness - although as normal there is a mystery to solve.

I wish that somewhere before I had read this that it had mentioned that there had been the short story small town wedding as I didn't realise this and I will now have to go back and read this to understanding some of the back story for the odd comments about Quinn and Sam and Jannalynn, which I have also had to do in the past with the other short stories having been a late comer to the Sookie Stackhouse Series.

Otherwise a great book perhaps not as strong as other books in the series as it obviously is building for the finale but you can guarantee that it won't be disappointing - can't wait!

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?
