Dead in the Family

Are you tired of reading Sookie Stackhouse reviews yet? Don't worry, I'm currently finishing up the most recently released book and then you don't have to hear about them for awhile.

Dead in the Family is the next in Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire Mystery series. As usual, Sookie finds herself in a world of trouble with the fairy world having been sealed off by Sookie's great-grandfather Niall, Sookie thinks she is rid of troublesome fairies. This may or may not be true as her fairy cousin Claude has now come to live with her, claiming that he's lonely. We also find out from the werewolves Alcide has allowed to run on her land that a fresh dead body is buried there. On the vampire side of things, Eric Northman's maker and vampire brother have entered the picture much to everyone's horror. Sookie tries to keep the peace between all supernatural beings and remain alive, as usual.

This one wasn't my favorite. It felt like nothing really happened in it. Maybe it was more of a set-up book for the one I'm on now. That remains to be seen since I'm only 20 pages in. Also, sometimes it's hard to keep the books straight from what happened on True Blood. The TV series follows the books pretty well in some regard and is totally off in others. On TV, Eric's maker is named Godrich and eventually meets the true death. So, I had no idea who this other cat was although I do prefer Sookie and Eric as a couple. Oh well, can't win 'em all!
