I've always had a special place in my heart for this series. When I first started reading it, it got my love for reading back and made me think back to days when I would devour anything written by Anne Rice. So it is with a heavy feeling in my heart that I have to say the past few books have not been to impressive. Even though I consider this one was better than the last book, but there isn't much to talk about because, well, not a lot happened.
The first 85% of the book (LOL) was slow and with a lot of running around with Sookie that didn't do much for the actual development of the storyline. So yeah the action and whatever revelations we get in this book all happened pretty much in the last 15%. That's what brought my rating down. Most of the book was actually a bit boring.
Without going into what happened and being spoilerish I'll just say that I wasn't happy with Eric in this book, I wasn't happy to see Bill portrayed as a nice guy again (for those who don't know I'm an avid "DIE.BILL.DIE" supporter, in fact I wouldn't mind staking him myself). And Sookie was just different, like she's lost some spark in her and I can't seem to be interested in what happens to her anymore.
I am really looking forward to the next book more in relief that we are putting this story to rest because I think that as good as the series has been and as much as I've loved it, it is time for the end.
