REVIEW: Dead in the Family


Title: Dead in the Family
Author: Charlaine Harris
Finished: May 9, 2010
Pages: 311
Published: 2010
Format: First Edition

It has been a long time coming it feels like since a Southern Vampire Mystery has been released and the adventures of Sookie Stackhouse could continue. I’m not sure what my expectations where before starting to read but I heard that there wasn’t the type of action in this specific book as there were in previous ones. I loved it!

The main focus of Dead in the Family is – of course – family. Sookie is struggling to recover from the Fae war and the loss of friends and family. She relationship with Eric is strained as she tries to become her former self. All varieties of supernaturals enter her world when the weres want to use her land and unknown faeries are nearby.

Eric gets a surprise of his own when his maker and brother suddenly make and unannounced visit causing even more turmoil in his relationship with Sookie.

I loved the parallels and patterns of this book, and the simplicity of life that revolves around family issues. I am very curious as to what she has in store for Sookie, Eric and the rest of the characters in the next book and more. I’m finding it’s not very difficult to jump between the books and the TV show when there are so many differences.
