My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I think I am burning out on Sookie. Which is sad. It is like meeting your old college friends at a bar and realizing that you really don’t have that deep connection anymore. You still like each other, but there is just a bit too much effort in keeping the conversation alive.
Spoilers below – (be warned).
The good…it was better than book ten. There was a good bit of action, and Sandra Pelt is finally dead. Good riddance. The book moved along well, but the formula is wearing thing.
The bad…the first event istn’t really related to the overall driving plot, but kinda ties back in. It really just fits the formula that the opening salvo isn’t what you expected, but since that is the norm for the series, it kinda is what you expected, which ruins it a bit.
The badder…I don’t like the way Sookie severs the bond with Eric. I get how she rationalized it. But if you are really in love I dont’ think you question whether it is the bond or real. And I don’t think she’d want to know. This and the Eric wedding contract felt like cheap plot devices to get Bill back into the picture.
