It's release date is set for may 1st. I've ordered it from chapters online.... and hope to get it by the end of next week. Can't wait either!
I got it yesterday, and it's brilliant! Left loads of questions to be answered in the next book though.
Oh well, only another year to wait now!
Just started it must say Quinn sound super yummy. Seems so long ago since I read the last one had to think hard about who all the new characters were.
Just finished it this afternoon. Fantastic. I have no idea where the story will go next, given the ending, but I can't wait!!
I read it in one sitting and then, of course, went nuts that I had gone through it so fast. A LOT of stuff happens in this book. Charlaine answers lots of questions but then leaves you with even more.
It was a dang good read...
I hate that i have to wait to read the next *grrr*
I just got it I have to say Quinn has really grown on me Umm......
I agree, but i have some issues about him in this book...but no spoilers now 'cause someone will kill me if I say something ;)
Yes! Got it at the airport (and got to use my Borders coupon!) Read about half of the book in the terminal and on the plane! Sure made time fly. Ugh. So to speak.
Anyway, yes I liked it. Questions answered and new ones posed. I really don't know what to say that won't be some kind of spoiler!
I agree, Quinn seems great. We'll have to see what his big flaw is, so far he's been really understanding.
I think you have a point with Quinn no man is that perfect, he's got to have a flaw. Maybe he is married!
Well in some ways he has been understanding, but the thing that he resents, in which case there was no choice, annoys me when he has some many secrets and issues of his own...
Me go mad on caveman attitude!
I expected better, and that's why I'm miffed.
Has anyone got this yet?
Hopefully, my copy will be here next thursday. Can't wait!
These Southern Vampire books are becoming an annoyance with how every one of them repeats deatails from the previous. This series would be great for 11-year-olds or for someone to just pick one of the books at random and read because they have enough info in every book to not leave you puzzled about what happen pryer. For the more recent books, half of it is just short summeries of the past ones. Which makes you want to skim through parts that drag out as such, but you don't want to miss any of the new plot as it thickens with good intensity. Darn, what a pickle. I'm actually currently reading the 6th book, but I look forward to the show that I've heard is coming out on HBO because I'm sure it won't baby us with a crap load of explainations. :\
I know what you mean about the review of things that happened before. I'm getting a little miffed that it seems that Harris can't remember how she said things were resolved in previous books b/c she will present a something that Sookie is wondering about that had been resolved in the prior book(s).
I think you will find the TV series annoying for different reasons - it isn't all that true to the books after Season 1.
This is the first of the Southern Vampire series that I listened to on audio. It was weird, frankly. The narrator's voice was nothing like I imagined Sookie.
The general story: Sookie is off to Chicago with Queen Sophie and the rest of the Louisiana vamps for a vampire summit. QS is going to be on trial for killing her husband, which she did not do. Sookie is going to read the minds of the humans to help QS decide who's up to what.
Sookie tries to balance being with Quinn, avoiding Eric and Bill and doing here work for Queen Sophie. While they are there, other vampires wind up dead, humans have all kinds of problems and there is a group of anti-vampire protesters causing problems. Actually, fairly big problems. Sookie winds up letting humans see that she is a telepath, which winds up causing her big problems.
This was probably my favorite of the Southern Vampire series. The storyline was attention getting and there were more developed relationships with Sookie and Quinn and Eric.
I'm glad Sookie has finally narrowed down her list of potential lovers. She seems to end up in a relationship with every guy she goes through turmoil with, except Barry. I think this may be because he decides he doesn't want anything to do with her by the end. It may also be that she's trying her best to be with Quinn. I like him, but I think he is really flaky. We'll see in From Dead to Worse.
Really like the Sookie Stackhouse series...wish Harris would add to it..her other stuff just doesn't draw me in the same way.
Ok I just finished reading this one again and there's one part that I just don't get no matter how many times I read over it. At the very end when Sookie and Barry are talking and she says she doesn't want to be on the plane with them and they talk some more and then Barry says maybe he doesn't want to be on the plane with her, what are they talking about? Someone please explain that scene to me, please.
