Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 22 September 2005
This is the third book in the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mystery series. When reading the previous book 'Living Dead In Dallas' I wondered if Charlaine Harris would be able to find realistic ways of writing Sookie's boyfriend Vampire Bill out of the action. This is necessary because his powers would otherwise leave Sookie redundant. I didn't imagine Charlaine would have his disappearance as the central mystery. By concentrating on Sookie's perspective this book is a quick read, which is something to be pleased about, but sometimes I felt as if some of the most exciting stuff happens offstage. I like Sookie as a central character, but I can't quite see why she is quite so attractive to everyone, I'll be generous suggest it is a side effect of the vampire blood she has ingested. The closing stages of this book are the most exciting in the series so far, also the most horrifying as we glimpse at the darkness where a vampires' soul should be. There are some moments of great humour, particularly when Sookie takes a wonderfully mundane approach to solving a particular problem. It will be interesting to see if Sookie's morality clashes further with that of the vampires as she is dragged further into their world.
