Definitely Dead

Definitely Dead is the next installment of Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series. In this wacky read, Sookie finds herself courted by many vampires to attend the vampire convention (in an upcoming book, I'm assuming, as we didn't get there yet). Eventually, the queen of Louisiana, Sophie-Anne, wins and Sookie travels to New Orleans at her request. The Queen has recently wed the King of Arkansas, Peter Threadgill. In New Orleans, Sookie is charged with cleaning out the apartment of her dead cousin Hadley, the Queen's former companion. She comes across some interesting things and also makes friends with the landlord witch, Amelia, downstairs.

In Definitely Dead, Sookie's relationship with Quinn (a weretiger from the last book) blossoms and the Pelts are still after Sookie to try to find out what happened to their Were daughter Debbie. Sookie finds herself in many pickles, once again, but if she didn't then she wouldn't be Sookie, right?

I liked this one. Although I love Eric, I'm not so fond of Bill and this Quinn fellow seems like he will be a good match for Sookie. I liked that we learned more about the Queen and the innerworkings of the vamp world. I am getting a little tired of all the Were related books but, I suppose you'll have that in a Supernatural series. Looking forward to finishing up this series to see what happens. AND for True Blood to come back.....not until the summer though. This was a very fast read, as always. If you're a fan of the series, you'll like this one.
