Club Dead by Charlaine Harris

Club Dead (Sookie Stackhouse, Book 3) Published: 2006
Pages: 288

This novel marks a turning point in the relationship between Sookie and her adored boyfriend Bill, the vampire. Bill is getting in deeper and going higher in the ranks of the vampire community and when he disappears, the vampires call Sookie to find him. Eric makes a much larger appearance in this third book, which I think really adds to the story. You can’t deny that there is some great chemistry between Eric and Sookie. This book has solidified my enjoyment of Eric and the possibility of a relationship between him and Sookie. Sure, he comes on strong and hard, often times a bit cold, but he’s actually quite charming and funny.

Club Dead has a fast paced plot, filled with humour, suspense, vampire lore and politics, new characters and excitement - not to mention Sookie's depression at being betrayed by Bill. I must say, that for a dumpee, she certainly gets plenty of male attention, although the men aren't human. Author Charlaine Harris also gives more depth to Sookie, Bill and Eric. I really like Alcide as a character, he is a nice guy who happens to turn into a Werewolf and I hope to see more of him in future novels. I also enjoy Sookie's country girl attitude. She is proud but not pretentious, feminine but no shrinking violet. She has got great instincts and her sense of humour is downright wicked! This is light, escapist reading at its best.
