Visiting vampires, feuding faeries, deadly romance. No-one throws a party like Sookie Stackhouse...This is the penultimate, wonderful, twelfth Sookie Stackhouse novel.

Sookie has a murder investigation on her hands. A young girl has died at a vampire party - and it looks as though her lover, Eric, might be responsible. Eric swears he didn't do it, the police don't believe him, and even Sookie isn't so sure. Nor is she inclined to take his word for it, not having caught him enjoying the victim's blood minutes before she was killed.

But something strange is going on. Why had Sookie been asked to come to the fateful party a few minutes early - just to catch Eric in the act? And why had the victim spiked her blood before approaching Eric? Was it simply because she wanted to be irresistible, or was it something more sinister?

Sookie will have to find out, but it's the worst moment to investigate as her Fae family are having troubles of their own and Sookie is, inevitably, drawn in. And there is one last complication. The cluviel dor her grandmother left her. It will grant her one wish, which could fulfil Sookie's heart's desire. The only problem is, she still doesn't know what - or who - her heart truly desires.


Interesting and fun


Page turner. You want to know what happens next!


plenty of action


Deadlocked is the twelfth (and penultimate) full-length novel in the Sookie Stackhouse series by popular American author, Charlaine Harris. After a somewhat slow start, there's plenty of action in this instalment, including kidnappings, the birth of twins, the rescue of hostages, incitement of rebellion, a few murders, seduction and a were pack judgement. The Vampire King of Louisiana, Nevada and Arkansas visits Eric to find out what happened to his missing regent, Victor Madden. During his visit, Sookie catches Eric in a somewhat compromising situation with a half-were girl who is later found murdered on his front lawn. As Sookie, Bill and Dermot investigate the who and the why of it, they discover some unsurprising truths, but are thoroughly shocked when they learn who is ultimately responsible. In addition, the Vampire Queen of Oklahoma comes to convince the man she is contracted to marry (Eric) of the advantages of their union; Ladies Only night at Hooligans brings a surprise for Sookie and her friends; Sookie agonises over her ownership of the magical Cluviel Dor; Sookie has a birthday and makes a will; and an antiques dealer gets greedy and pays a high price. Sookie makes a monumental decision that will see readers eager for the final book, Dead Ever After.

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.
