Dead and Gone [Harris]

Book: Dead and Gone [Southern Vampire Mysteries/Sookie Stackhouse Book 9]
Author: Charlaine Harris
Reason for Reading: for fun
Genre: Sci-Fi/Fantasy

Review: After locating survivors at the vampire summit disaster, the FBI has tracked down Sookie Stackhouse and wants to figure out if she truly has powers. Meanwhile, supes have made themselves known to the world at large and Sookie's sister-in-law, a were-panther, is murdered. Sookie tries to figure out who murdered her sister-in-law and finds herself in the middle of a fae war involving her grandfather and a fellow fae prince. Of course, she also has some romantic issues to figure out when Eric tricks her into a difficult situation, and Bill makes it known he will risk everything for her.

The darkest of the series thus far, this book almost had too many plot points-many subjects that were introduced appeared abandoned by the end of the book or never fully fleshed out. While there was some sharp dialogue and humor, as a whole the book felt rushed and was not properly edited. Characters names in previous books were somehow different in this installment and there were some major gaps in the plot. That being said-I still really enjoyed the book and cannot wait to see what happens next.

May 2010..I'm excited!
