Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris

Dead to the World (Sookie Stackhouse, Book 4)Published: 2005
Pages: 320

Book Blurb: One of the best-known and best writers of the new American mythology is Charlaine Harris. Dead to the World is the fourth novel in her Anthony Award-winning Southern Vampire series. It continues the story of psychic waitress Sookie Stackhouse, who has fallen out with her undead lover, Bill. Bill has no sooner departed for Peru, than Sookie finds the head vampire, Eric, running naked and terrified through the rural night. She helps Eric, and discovers his memory has been destroyed by a coven of unscrupulous, astonishingly powerful witches, newly arrived in her small Louisiana town, and offering a huge reward for Eric. Sookie tries to hide Eric, but her brother sees him--and immediately disappears. And Sookie finds herself caught in a war among witches, vampires, and werewolves.

Review: This is another fast paced action-packed novel from Charlaine Harris. I honestly don’t know how she does it. I have read four in a row of the Southern Vampire series, and I’m neither sick of them nor have they slowed down even though the same plot format has been used in each book. Charlaine Harris is a master story-teller.

Further layers of Sookie and other characters are revelled in the course of this novel and yet another mythical creature. This book centres around Witches and adds another level of depth to the ‘other’ world.

I must warn you that there are a few scenes in this book where you might want to stand in front of a fan while you read them as your body temperature may rise considerably. Mine certainly did! I’m not going to tell you who Sookie was with, but I will say it was every bit as good as I expected it to be. Very hot Vamp!
