Book Review: "Deadlocked" by Charlaine Harris

Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse, #12)Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Oh, my.

"Deadlocked" by Charlaine Harris... sucks.

The plot picks up the previously mentioned plot threads from the rest of the series. There is Eric's fiance as arranged by his maker, Sookie's magical fairy wish, what to do with the remaining fae, the birth of J.P and Tara's twins, blah blah blah. It felt as though Ms. Harris went through the previous books, wrote down the open threads, and tried to end as many of them as she could.

The main story concerns a dead girl showing up in Eric's front yard during a party with the King of Nevada. But honestly? Who cares?

I felt this story flew out of the window, parts being edited willy nilly. I say this because the author mentions a new character as if we already know her, then later in the book does the introduction. I chalk that up to bad editing. In fact, while there are several scene of good dialogue and/or action, taken in its entirety the book falls flat on its proverbial face.

I know that some people say this series is dead. But I think the series is salvageable if the next book get edited more.

  1. I've never read any of the books in the Sookie series, but I know people are crazy about them. Bummer this one was so poorly done/edited.


Feel free to agree or disagree, just be polite.
