Dead as a Doornail
By: Charlaine Harris
This book takes off where Dead to the World ended. Sookie is taking her brother Jason to Hotspot as he prepares to turn for the first time with the full moon. Just when we thought the mystical world would get a break from everything, someone is starting to hunt shifters, and were’s it looks to all like it’s Jason doing this. Which we find out is far from the case. He’s embracing his animal side. Sookie also faces much sadness as someone burns half her house down. So she ends up staying in one of Sam Merlotte’s properties in town. Sookie is also faced with saving her friend Tara from Mickey. We learned in Club Dead that Tara had been dating Franklin, but he has since passed her on to a really nasty vampire named Mickey. Mickey very much disapproves of Sookie. Sookie ends up asking for favors left and right.
Also we see more about how the were packs acquire their head master, which is unique to say the least. We also see more of Claudine and Claude the two fairies. Claudine who’s Sookie’s fairy godmother, and her twin brother Claude (who’s attitude is very different to say the least).
There seemed to be more bloodshed in this one, more so then the others. As the were’s are getting picked off, it seems like they will never catch the sniper, but in the end Sookie and Sam figure it out.
I rate this story 5 tea cups. As I have said I really enjoy this series, as it shows that Sookie can endure a lot. She overcomes many things that are thrown her way. And Sookie can still keep her humor even in bad situations. Can’t wait to read the next one.
What do you think of the Sookie Stackhouse series?
