With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover Eric Northman and his "child" Pam are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot-which is much more complicated than she knows...

plenty of action and intrigue

4

Dead Reckoning is the eleventh full-length novel in the Sookie Stackhouse series by popular American author, Charlaine Harris. Sookie decides to clean out her attic, and that uncovers something both exciting and disturbing. Both Eric and Sam are noticing the effects of competition in the form of a roadhouse and a Vampire club opened by Victor Madden, new regent of Louisiana. A Molotov cocktail, a quartet of thugs high on Vampire blood and a crazy gun-wielding attacker don't help business at Merlottes. Sookie learns quite a bit about her fae history, is unhappy that Eric seems to be keeping a big secret from her, and wonders why the fae left on this side of the faery portal are gathering at the Hooligans club. Sookie has quite a few houseguests, who get their marching orders when they interfere just a bit too much in her life; she finds herself naked under a house with a vampire and finds a naked were in her bed. A body is disposed of in a rather novel manner. Sookie hosts a baby shower and learns the source of her telepathy; she takes part in an assassination and realises her dismay at how much the vampires enjoy the killing. This instalment has plenty of action and intrigue and quite a few unresolved issues for the next book in the series, Deadlocked.

Wonderful Sookie

This is an awesome book, as are all of the Sookie Stackhouse novels. Sookie Stackhouse is the main character and she is a very insightful, funny and interesting character and the book is from her point of view. Excellent reading and if you love Vampires, Shape shifters, Weres and Fae this is the book for you.

Charlaine Harris

Charlaine Harris has been a published novelist for over twenty-five years. A native of the Mississippi Delta, she grew up in the middle of a cotton field. Now she lives in southern Arkansas with her husband, her three children, three dogs, and a duck. The duck stays outside.

Though her early output consisted largely of ghost stories, by the time she hit college (Rhodes, in Memphis) Charlaine was writing poetry and plays. After holding down some low-level jobs, she had the opportunity to stay home and write, and the resulting two stand-alones were published by Houghton Mifflin. After a child-producing sabbatical, Charlaine latched on to the trend of writing mystery series, and soon had her own traditional books about a Georgia librarian, Aurora Teagarden. Her first Teagarden, Real Murders, garnered an Agatha nomination.

Soon Charlaine was looking for another challenge, and the result was the much darker Lily Bard series. The books, set in Shakespeare, Arkansas, feature a heroine who has survived a terrible attack and is learning to live with its consequences.

When Charlaine began to realize that neither of those series was ever going to set the literary world on fire, she regrouped and decided to write the book she’d always wanted to write. Not a traditional mystery, nor yet pure science fiction or romance, Dead Until Dark broke genre boundaries to appeal to a wide audience of people who just enjoy a good adventure. Each subsequent book about Sookie Stackhouse, telepathic Louisiana barmaid and friend to vampires, werewolves, and various other odd creatures, has drawn more readers. The southern vampire books are published in Japan, Great Britain, Greece, Germany, Thailand, Spain, France, and Russia.

In addition to Sookie, Charlaine has another heroine with a strange ability. Harper Connelly, lightning-struck and strange, can find corpses . . . and that’s how she makes her living.

In addition to her work as a writer, Charlaine is the past senior warden of St. James Episcopal Church, a board member of Mystery Writers of America, a past board member of Sisters in Crime, a member of the American Crime Writers League, and past president of the Arkansas Mystery Writers Alliance. She spends her “spare” time reading, watching her daughter play sports, travelling, and going to the movies.
