All Together Dead [Harris]

Book: All Together Dead [Southern Vampire Mysteries/Sookie Stackhouse Book 7]
Author: Charlaine Harris
Reason for Reading: for fun
Genre: Sci-Fi/Fantasy

Review: Sookie Stackhouse, the telepathic barmaid from Bon Temps, LA, finds herself at the US vampire summit off the shores of Lake Michigan working for Sophie-Anne Leclerq, the vampire queen of Louisiana. Sophi-Anne's empire is weakened after hurricane Katrina and she is on trial for the death of her husband, the king. As the only human witness to the crime, Sookie knows the queen is innocent, but she is unprepared for the events that unfold. Some vampires are murdered while members of The Fellowship of the Sun have infiltrated the hotel and are planning some sort of attack. Sookie pairs up with Barry the Bel hop, a fellow telepath, and together they try to figure out the mystery before it is too late.

Darker than previous installments in the series, I enjoyed Sookie's character development and the various plots points. There are a number of romantic suitors vying for Sookie's attention and dedicated fans will not be disappointed.

Recommend: yes

Book Junkie's Grade: B+
