Summary

Sookie has a murder investigation on her hands. A young girl has died at a vampire party - and it looks as though her lover, Eric, might be responsible. Eric swears he didn't do it, the police don't believe him, and even Sookie isn't so sure. Nor is she inclined to take his word for it, having caught him enjoying the victim's blood minutes before she was killed.
But something strange is going on. Why had Sookie been asked to come to the fateful party a few minutes early - just to catch Eric in the act? And why had the victim spiked her blood before approaching Eric? Was it simply because she wanted to be irresistible, or was it something more sinister?
Sookie will have to find out . . . but it's the worst moment to investigate, as her Fae family are having troubles of their own and Sookie is, inevitably, drawn in. And there is one last complication. The cluviel dor her grandmother left her. It will grant her one wish, which could fulfil Sookie's heart's desire. The only problem is, she still doesn't know what - or who - her heart truly desires...

Bringing Sookie back home to roost..

The most important thing you have to remember when reading a Sookie Stackhouse book is that it isn't True Blood. The two should be regarded as different stories with the same characters.
I personally think Harris managed to bring this twelfth book in the series, back home to roost again. She has linked into her characters as they were in the beginning, as opposed to what they are in the TV series. Which means this book has a laid back and comfortable quality to it.
It wasn't until I had finished the book that I realised there was no naughty scenes at all,which also means the story didn't need them. I missed Pam and her witty remarks and Eric played the understudy this time. I also thought there were far too many scenes that had Sookie shopping, painting her nails and having a shower.

Harris seems to have tired of the set of characters and appears eager to bring the story to a conclusion. Going by the last scene I do hope it won't be 'a happy ever after Bon Temp waitress gets mediocre life' one.
I bought the Audio version of this book and as always the narrator Johanna Parker is brilliant. She has Sookie down to a fine art, which makes listening even more of a delight.

Better than book 11..... just

I Love love love Sookie Stackhouse books. But I probably should have stopped reading them around book nine or ten. There was a lot of "i brushed my hair......I went to the library......I went to the store...." what I call feel is filler fluff to pad the story out. It's not like there were any reason to include so many mundane details, they weren't relevant, but they went on and on and on and on......

Good as always

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If your hooked in the Sookie-story like me this is a must.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Deadlocked?

Som realy good Pam-comments and I do like the fearies.

Any additional comments?

Totaly as good as the rest of the books in the series, but it feels a bit like an inbetween book like you are waiting for som realy big event that does not happen, but it does make me look forward to the next one.

Love Sookie

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

I am going too cry though if Sookie doesn't end up with Eric in the final book.

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, Stacia Kane, Kelly Medding and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Happy Reading
