[Ebook] ➧ Dead Reckoning By Charlaine Harris – Rvtrek.info

Dead Reckoning There are some minor spoilers below allusions to character s feelings thoughts actions that could give some plot points away Sookie s working her shift in Merlotte s when the bar is firebombed and it doesn t look like the bomber was human To make matters worse, an old enemy is out for her blood and the tension between her vampire lover husband Eric and his progeny Pam with their boss, Victor, is building The peaceful life Sookie is wishing for seems a distant dream.A new Sookie book is like visiting with old friends There are so many folks I love in Sookie s world, and it is real treat catching up with them but it s like a visit with the old gang in ways than one it is great catching up with them all, but there s so much going on in their lives, you feel like you didn t spend as much time with them as you would have liked.A few old favourites make significant appearances here Bubba, Mr Cataliades, Amelia, Bob, Hunter and Alcide show up Alcide in a funny and very compromising way, and it makes me think we might not see Alcide again in a hurry Bill plays a larger role in Dead Reckoning than he has in a while, and I found myself genuinely li 3 1 2 StarsI should start off by saying that though the Sookie Stackhouse series isn t my all time favorite series, Eric Northman IS my all time favorite fictional character AND GODDAMN I LOVE ME SOME PAM Half of the reason I love these books is the Eric and Pam relationship I find them endlessly entertaining Though there weren t enough appearances of them there never are , there were some comedic bits between the two I enjoyed the funny jabs at Sookie on Pam s behalf One scene in particular, involving a gift to Sookieyeah, that was classic.The other half of the reason I love these books is Eric s relationship with Sookie However, I think Eric is too good for Sookie I ve honestly never been a big fan of her I think she s a brat, she yells too much, she s too judgmental, changes her mind to whatever suits her at the momentand the hits can keep coming, but I ll stop here That said, I was even annoyed with her in this book because her character has seemed to make ABSOLUTELY NO PROGRESSION she is not maturing in anyway, except maybe by obsessing over cleaning her house when she s stressed or so the stereotype goes which happened WAAAAAAY too much, but I digress I think it s obvious that there is no longer a love affair with our author and these chara An Alternate Cover For This ASIN Can Be Found Here.With Her Knack For Being In Trouble S Way, Sookie Witnesses The Firebombing Of Merlotte S, The Bar Where She Works Since Sam Merlotte Is Now Known To Be Two Natured, Suspicion Falls Immediately On The Anti Shifters In The Area Sookie Suspects Otherwise, But Her Attention Is Divided When She Realizes That Her Lover Eric Northman And His Child Pam Are Plotting To Kill The Vampire Who Is Now Their Master Gradually, Sookie Is Drawn Into The Plot Which Is Much Complicated Than She Knows Dear Sookie, You know you are one of my oldest friends, right I love our yearly visits at your old Stackhouse family home, sitting on the porch, soaking up the sun and drinking iced tea It s great to live vicariously through you and hear about the most powerful and sexy supernatural beasts falling over themselves to flirt with and please you And Eric Mmmm Anytime you want to tell me all of his dirty little secrets and every sexy thing about him that is okay with me But here s the thing, Sookie You tend to ramble A lot Don t get offended I love hearing you talk and visiting Bon Temps with you But our time is limited And as much as I love hearing all those mundane details of your life, I really wish our time together could be used wisely Your life is so exciting, and so many fascinating things happen to and around you I d much rather hear about your supernatural activities than the particulars that went into preparing for Tara s baby showers The next time we meet, it would be awesome if you stuck to the important facts Don t get me wrong, I love hearing you talk about brushing your hair and cleaning the kitchen But if you can t bring yourself to edit thos Formula for Sookie books

reminding me why I burned out on Sookie she has almost completely failed to develop, cont It seems to me that Ms Harris is being and influenced by the show, which in case of the novel is a bad thing Does anybody else have a feeling that the author is setting a scene for a convenient fading out Eric, and a not so miraculous reintroduction of Bill The dialogue between S and E is stale and lacks in energy.Whereas, Bill s character all of the sudden shows signs of sense of humour In sh I don t know why I have this feeling we will be disappointed with this installment I just feel the series needs a closure and it doesn t seem like it I want Eric but I don t think I ll get all the Eric I need to get to love this series again It feels like this book is just g WelllThis is a solid, liked it but 3.5 stars If it wasn t for the fact that there MIGHT be a HUGE plot inconsistency in this book the convo between Sook, Claude Dermot about Niall Eric being in cahoots , I would give it 4 stars but I m trying to figure out if something might actually be a well placed lie by CH or not but I m not so sure yet Edited on May 14th After doing some digging, I think the bit I thought was a plot inconsistency is intentional See bottom of review However, overall I really enjoyed this installment once the ball got rolling the 1st 50% was a bit boring for me I do believe this was indeed a huge turning point for not just Sookie Eric but Sookie herself The end scene with Eric was like..BAM She has some very big thinking to do about what she wants for herself what she is willing to accept about her life the people she surrounds herself with.I don t have many doubts that Eric Sookie are going wind up together OK maaayaybe a little doubt b c CH likes to play her audiencebut really It wouldn t make se I am willing to bet that this book was as much of a torture for Charlaine Harris to write as it was for me to read There is no juice left in this series And certainly, there is no author s love Not only is Sookie s voice no longer recognizable I just reread books 1 3, so I can in fact tell the difference , but this whole book is simply one huge FAIL The characters were altered Where was cool Pam Where was sarcastic Eric Where was chemistry between Sookie and Eric Where were the human characters Where was Jason Why was this story so convoluted Why was the blood bond so easy to sever Why did Alcide show up Why was Amelia such a ditz Why were Lily Bard and Jack in the book Why did Bill come over to ramble about his love life Why did so many threads from the past suddenly surface Why was that package hidden in the attic What was the deal with the fairies What was Hunter doing in this book Ice pack Why What Where How WTF The B 69% Satisfactory NotesCozy and familiar, while at the same time sloppy, amateurish and blah No direction, just seemingly random events.
