This book isn't one for a novice to the series - there are a lot of complicated events in previous books that are alluded to, or are foundational to plot or character, which aren't fully explained. The central part of the story is the big vampire convention at Rhodes where Sookie is attending, as a guest and helper of the Queen of Louisiana, to use her telepathic skills to help the Queen in her negotiations. However there is clearly more going on at the convention than Sookie first realised, with various trials, murders, bombs and more. Sookie's life is made more complicated by her exes, Bill and Eric, being at the convention along with Quinn. Somehow it seems that Sookie hasn't got over either Bill or Eric and that she's not yet sure about her future with Quinn.
The other books in the series have all been excellent but somehow this one was a little below par. Perhaps it was the plot which, although interesting, was also rather easy to see through. The huge roster of characters can make it a bit hard work to follow what's going on and although the underlying concepts of this series are excellent, I wonder if it's perhaps getting a little tired. Most of the action in this story takes place in the hotel in Rhodes, rather than in Bon Temps or Shreveport, which adds some more interest to the story - almost all the characters in this book are supernatural in some way rather than the usual mix of mostly humans with some vamps or weres. This serves to show how Sookie's life has become rather out of her control as she is subject to the whims and power plays of the various vamps around her.
For those who've enjoyed the previous books this is still a good read and one that most fans will appreciate. However it doesn't quite satisfy as the others did which might be a sign than the author is running out of ideas for this series or perhaps might just be a short blip. I look forward to the next book with great anticipation to find out!
Sookie herself refers to "an overload of villains". She is right. Treachery abounds, scarcely anyone to be trusted. Who are the agents of the sinister Fellowship of the Sun, its secret agenda to destroy vampires and their associates? Quinn, Eric and Bill are still around, their protection needed. (Bill remains in disgrace following THOSE revelations.) It is good to see again fellow telepath Barry Bellboy - he and Sookie to prove a formidable team.
Make the most of happy early episodes (one of them provided by Sookie's brother Jason). There are not very many, events soon to become very dark indeed - and somewhat confusing, with rather too many characters and too much to take in.
Yes, this seventh novel pulls out all the stops, hurtling towards the most devastating climax yet. The reader is left reeling - and, with scarcely a pause for breath, will no doubt be urgently seeking the eighth book in the series.
I did like the development of the relationship between Eric and Sookie (my favourite vampire) but I missed Bon Temps and the bar and Sam. I think these stories work best when they are firmly set in Sookie's home town, with her neighbours and friends.
The summit, which has attracted undead power players from all over central U.S., is sure to be a tense situation. The vampire queen of Louisiana is in a precarious position, her power base weakened by hurricane damage to New Orleans. And there are some vamps who would like to finish what nature started. With secret alliances and backroom deals the order of the day-and- night Sookie must decide what side she'll stand with. And her choice may mean the difference between survival and all-out catastrophe..... "
I have been waiting for so long for this book to be published....and finally here it is !!! "All Together Dead" is book 7 from Southern vampire series. I loved the book, but there is a reason why I did not give it five stars. I loved going back into Sookie's crazy world of vampires and other creatures, but the story seemed a little too cluttered to me, all about vampire politics (a little dry). And I must admit that I missed Sookie's home town, her bar, Sam ....
All-in-all I loved the book but it did not have the same feel to it like the others in the series.
