PNR Review: Dead Ever After: A Sookie Stackhouse Novel (Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood) [Hardcover]

I've finished "Dead After After" the 13th and last book in the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris.

Product Description


There are secrets in the town of Bon Temps, ones that threaten those closest to Sookie — and could destroy her heart.

Sookie Stackhouse finds it easy to turn down the request of former barmaid Arlene when she wants her job back at Merlotte’s. After all, Arlene tried to have Sookie killed. But her relationship with Eric Northman is not so clearcut. He and his vampires are keeping their distance and a cold silence. And when Sookie learns the reason why, she is devastated.

Then a shocking murder rocks Bon Temps, and Sookie is arrested for the crime.

But the evidence against Sookie is weak, and she makes bail. Investigating the killing, she’ll learn that what passes for truth in Bon Temps is only a convenient lie. What passes for justice is more spilled blood. And what passes for love is never enough.

My Review:

Well we have finally arrived to the 13th and finally book of Sookie's adventures but not everything is tied up so hopefully Charlaine will come back to Sookie universe.   I for one am sad to see Sookie's journey come to an end but I can't wait to see what Charlaine has for us up next.

At the beginning of the book we learn there is a plot against Sookie by people who are very angry with her.  They strike a deal with the devil in return for what ever they desire but with deadly consequences.

When Arlene a former barmaid and Sookie's ex-friend asks for her old job back Sookie turns her down flat easily because she hatched a plan to have Sookie killed.  Her relationship with Eric Northman seems to be turning for the worst.  Eric and his vampire coven are keeping their distance and giving her the cold shoulder.  When she learns the truth she is devastated.

Then a horrible murder is committed and Sookie is arrested for the crime.  The evidence against her is weak so she is able to post bail.  When she and her allies investigate the murder they uncover a conspiracy.

It was nice to see Sookie's friends and family helping in the investigation and supporting her (she really needed it).  I missed Bubba though!

Though I was satisfied that Sookie ended up with Sam I was hoping she would end up with Bill (he's one of my favorites).  I know that he betrayed her but you can see he does still love her.  Eric on the other hand his betrayal is much worst and hurtful (I for one am glad that Sookie let him go).


Thanks Penguin Canada for sending me this book to review, greatly appreciated!
