This book was better than her last 2 dismal failures, but it still fell short. Very, very short.

Why do I keep reading these, I ask myself? This book, like the last 2 was sad, depressing & without any kind of ending--let alone a happy one!

Sookie leads a sad life. Perhaps I am remembering the first few books with nostalgia instead of accuracy--but wasn't Sookie fun & kooky & lovable in the beginning? Didn't she have some great love scenes & hot males to play with?

What happened to all that? This book had NO ROMANCE. NO LOVE. None whatsoever. Her paranormal characters are totally flat & emotionless. JR Ward's vampires are hot, steamy, passionate, emotion-filled. Harris's vampires are cold, calculating & angry. And that's AFTER Eric tells Sookie he loves her. Like I believed him!

I keep thinking Sookie will be given the love & life & happy ending she deserves. But instead I'm given flat, boring books, with dangling endings--leading me to foolishly buy the next book. She just doesn't embody most females that I know--most give everything to the loves of their lives & enjoy the ride. I know I did!

But Sookie goes for days without seeing her supposed 'Husband'--and even longer without the love, passion, sex that goes hand in hand with a normal healthy relationship.

I felt so sad & depressed by the end it was ridiculous. Can I recommend this book--nope. Once again, it fell so short of "good" I am sorry I wasted my time reading it.
