Dead Ever After

The morning after I raised my boss from the dead, I got up to find him sitting half-dressed in my backyard on my chaise lounge. It was about ten a.m. on a July day, and the sun was bathing the backyard in brilliant heat. Sam’s hair was turned into a bright tangle of red and gold. He opened his eyes as I came down the back steps and crossed the yard. I was still in my nightshirt, and I didn’t even want to think about my own hair. It was pretty much one big snarl.

After he had drifted back into the woods and I had locked the house up tight, I sat in front of my computer. I had planned to check my e-mail, but instead I found myself trying to unravel Bill’s meaning.


This is the last Sookie novel, wrapping up the series. I am curious as to what will happen and how it will all end. I’ve heard many readers mention that they didn’t like the way the series ended.

What are you reading now? Do you have anything to share with us?

      I read most of them fairly close together, then there was a bit of a gap between them, the next to last, and this one. As soon as I started reading about my “friends” I realized how much I had missed hearing what was going on in their lives.

  4. I haven’t read any of the “Sookie” books — actually didn’t know there were so many! Sounds like an interesting series, but I suppose I should start at the beginning. (Which would be an unusual move for me!)

    Excellent teaser!

      I didn’t know there were so many either, Joy. It took me til the third or fourth book before I really started loving the series. With the first one, as with so many first in a series, it was busy setting up the story and I was busy meeting the characters. I might not have even continued the series except there was a little zinger at the end that made me really curious to see what it was about. Same with the second book.

    I need to catch up on the Sookie books. I have to read the last two. I’ve heard the same as you, most people were disappointed in the ending!


    • Dagny says:

      The last book is a bit disjointed. So many past characters came back to have a part in it and then there were some major ones who didn’t. Because of this, for me anyway, it wasn’t one of the better books of the series as far as plot and entertainment went.
