Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse, #11) - Charlaine Harris The Southern Vampire Mysteries are not great books. Charlaine Harris is not a great author. But I have always enjoyed reading about Sookie’s adventure, so it was inevitable that I read the latest book #11.There something about these books that I have always liked. Sookie’s narrative is funny. I like the southern feel of the books. Though I have to mention that I don’t have much knowledge about Louisiana or the life of south and I don’t know if it’s an accurate portrayal but it’s entertaining.There’s nothing much that happened in this one.No ‘oh em gee!What will happen now?’ kind of mystery.They kill Victor.They kill Sandra.The blood bond is broken very easily and that shows that Charlaine Harris is not good at planning her books.She brings a twist in a book,regrets it and then has to think of a lame way to get rid of it.Alcide shows up for one scene,Bill is there sometimes.I felt,there were a lot of plot holes.I still haven't figured out who sent Hod and the other guy to kidnap Sookie.It felt contrived,something done to get Bill in the middle of things.Eric is being weaved out of the story gradually.Sookie will end up with Sam IMO.The author is dragging this series and it’s not working anymore. I think she should wrap it up soon or even the most faithful readers will get bored and be done with them
