Pros: Well researched and written; intriguing and interesting     Cons: Sookie is almost too weak in this installment.     The Bottom Line: Dead And Gone continues to explore, and bring to life in a new way, one of the oldest myths in human existence, one that refuses to die an honored death.     Book Details:   Author: Charlaine Harris   Book Type: Soft-cover; 289 pages   Publisher: Ace Books/The Berkley Publishing …

Sookie is back! In Dead and Gone the shifters have come out of the closet - they are taking the vampire's lead and have decided to also go public with their "special talents". The town seems to be taking it quite nicely until someone gets killed.    I have to say that this might be the most violent book in the series - with a cruxification, a shooting, poisoning, torture, and on the brink of a Faery war. But I also believe it is one of my favorites. For one, Sookie seems to have …

OMG I couldn't put this down! I can't even review this very well without major spoilers but it is soooo good! Finally the werewolves are out, which opens doors for more conflict, and an all out war is just beginning. There are a few character deaths that really broke my heart but really, Sookie/Eric finally!!!! I've been waiting for what happened for 9 books already! I can't wait until the next one and I hope the show connects them and follows the books on their romance as well. The best!

The ninth entry in the Southern Vampire Mysteries, Dead and Gone, opens with Sookie Stackhouse back at work at Merlotte's in Bon Temps, Louisiana, and the world being rocked with the revelation of were-creatures. Sookie, telepath extraordinaire, has known of the existence of not only the weres but all sorts of other supernaturals for a while now (even having dated the weretiger Quinn), but those who haven't aren't necessarily thrilled with the news. Even her boss Sam's stepfather doesn't react well …
