Without a doubt, the best in the series thus far, From Dead to Worse by Charlaine Harris was filled to the brim with mystery, conflict, and the themes with which I most connect.

The introduction of Hunter gave me not only a ton of potential plot twists, but the hope that Sookie will someday develop a long-lasting, emotional bond with someone who truly gets her. The twist with Quinn took me by surprise; I thought Harris was really building him up to be a more permanent fixture in Sookie’s love life. Seeing Eric so vulnerable reminded me why I like him so much. Another surprise (this one more fun for me) was Sookie’s great-grandfather.

In previous books, I felt like Sookie’s world might be getting a little too crowded, but this book seemed to have a better flow–Harris’ continuity editor is doing a great job there.

Now I have to patiently wait for the paperback edition of Dead and Gone. Patience is overrated 🙂

FYI: I know these posts are not formal reviews of the Sookie Stackhouse series. For me, these posts are more of a way to track how I felt about each book, and a way for me to note anything in particular that grabbed my attention.
