Summary

If you think your family relationships are complicated, think again: you haven't seen anything like the ones in Bon Temps, Louisiana. Sookie Stackhouse is dealing with a whole host of family problems, ranging from her own kin (a non-human fairy and a telepathic second cousin) demanding a place in her life, to her lover Eric's vampire sire, an ancient being who arrives with Eric's 'brother' in tow at a most inopportune moment. And Sookie's tracking down a distant relation of her ailing neighbour (and ex), Vampire Bill Compton.
In addition to the multitude of family issues complicating her life, the werewolf pack of Shreveport has asked Sookie for a special favour, and since Sookie is an obliging young woman, she agrees. But this favour for the wolves has dire results for Sookie, who is still recovering from the trauma of her abduction during the Fairy War.
It's all about family....

Dead in the Family

This was well worth the wait, I loved this book as much or even more than the others. Having followed the stories from the outset it is fascinating how the characters develop and draw you in. This book is the best, dark in some parts and hilarious in others and all round entertaining. I sincerely hope there will be more of Sookie's adventures, I hate to think there might be an ending

back with more mayhem

Sookies is back as the heorin of yet another crisis. Finally she can be with the one she loves and adores, but trouble is lurking in the darkness. Eric meets his maker, the Fey are acting strange and all of this is wrapped up in a neat little mistery for us to enjoy, while Sookie tries to tie all the ends.

This book is narrated by Johanna Parker, who does a remarkable job, convincing us that Sookie herself is telling us the story, rather than the story being read to us. Also mrs. Parker does all of the voices herself, and this is why the stackhouse series is more than just books on audio. it is an experience, I can enjoy while washing the dishes. in fact, the stackhouse series is one of the main reasons my house is so clean, I just cant wait to hear the next chapter.

Loved It

Any additional comments?

Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.

Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.

I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Happy Reading
