Review: Dead to the World (Sookie Stackhouse, Book 5) By Charlaine Harris

Dead to the World (Sookie Stackhouse, #4)Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris

My Rating:
-Frigging Amazing! Why did it have to end?!


When cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse sees a naked man on the side of the road, she doesn't just drive on by. Turns out the poor thing hasn't a clue who he is, but Sookie does. It's Eric the vampire--but now he's a kinder, gentler Eric. And a scared Eric, because whoever took his memory now wants his life.

My Thoughts:

Dead to the World is the fourth installment in the Sookie Stackhouse series. I actually read this well over a year ago but re-read it last night again and realized I like it more than 4 stars. Way more.

Eric is my favorite character to start with, but during this book I love the new Eric also. He seemed so venerable and lost. It was Eric from a simpler time, without all the death and pain. He was reborn and cute as hell. lol! And I think Eric truly felt something for Sookie. What could have been! But, then Eric wouldn't be the Eric that we've come to love. And I do like the original Eric a lot.

As for the story line outside of Sookies romance life, Sookie doesn't have it easy. Her brother goes missing, she's being hated to the point where the answer comes to death and to save Eric from losing his memory permanently, she has to go up against very powerful witches, that ends up in a battle for lives.

Dead to the World was very exciting and suspenseful read. The romance was great and the plot was well put together. I could consider this book my favorite of the series so far. Mostly because of all the yummy scenes with Eric, but also because it really was a a fantastic read.
If you haven't read this series yet, or have only watched the show, I highly recommend you read the books. The show may be good but the books are great. You don't know what your missing!
