From Dead to Worse - Sookie Stackhouse, Bk 8
Author: Charlaine Harris
The supernatural community in Bon Temps, Louisiana, is reeling from two hard blows - the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina and the man-made horror of the explosion at the vampire summit the month before in the up-north city of Rhodes. Sookie Stackhouse is safe but dazed, yearning for things to get back to normal. But that's just not happ...  more »

This book was predictable but such fun! I am a huge fan of the series and have devoured each one since falling in love with the HBO series True Blood. I can't wait for the next one in the series to come out. If you are a fan of Sookie Stackhouse or True Blood you will enjoy this one!

Loved the revelation at the end! Yet another fun Sookie Stackhouse book. Many ratings have rated certain books of better quality than others in the series, but I think Harris's writing is consistent. She's weaving a complete story through several volumes, rather than stand-alone books. (Even though she insists that they could be read that way, I think it hurts the story.) My only quibble with this book is one I have with all the others: The first few pages of each book are too much backstory, and not enough new story. I'm getting tired of being re-introduced to the characters for each book. Even still, I'm completely addicted to this series.

This is definitely one of the better books in the series. Even though the author must have been trying to fill pages with so many different plots in the story, it was written better than the previous books had been. I spent more time looking forward to what would happen next than rolling my eyes over ridiculous things the characters did. Sookie is definitely growing as a person and not quite as annoying as she used to be, but she still does things that she can't help since the author is obviously trying to drag her romantic life on for as long as possible.

Over, not a bad read at all.

I thought the plot for this one was all over the place. There was no big "climax" each scenerio got taken care of then they moved on to the next one. There was nothing that made me just have to stay up late and finish the last few chapters.

I really plowed through this whole series rather hungrily. A result of my withdrawal from the True Blood tv show being off season. This book managed to be just as good as all the previous ones before it. Harris weaves new things into the stories and keeps things interesting. These are books where things are happening and the action moves along. A very recommended read.

I loved it. Each Sookie Stackhouse book gets more exciting than the previous. There's a combination of old and new characters with lots of action and intrigue.

Sookie Stackhouse is back home after surviving the explosion at the vampire summit, wishing things would get back to normal. But that isn't about to happen. Her weretiger boyfriend, Quinn, is missing. The Louisiana Vampires are going through a hostile takeover. And, Sookie is stuck in the middle of were politics, trying to keep the peace. She is also introduced to her great-great grandfather, who turns out to be a Fae King.

Although I enjoyed the 8th book in the series, it felt like a bunch of short stories that were held together by Sookie's character. The story about the weres and their problems ended, just in time to start the story of the Nevada Vampires taking over in Louisiana. Even though it was entertaining, my biggest problem was the lack of mystery. At least she brought back many characters from the past and included them in the stories. Overall, it was a very entertaining read. My rating: 4 Stars.
