It is hard to believe we are down to the very final Sookie Stackhouse story. We talked about this before on this site, but at that time it seemed like such a long way off. Now, the much anticipated last chapter in the story of our beloved telepathic bar maid is finally available.
It was released on May 7th and you can bet I have already downloaded Dead Ever After to my Kindle. I rescheduled many of the books I wanted to review and I am reading it as fast as I can (and with a great deal of delight, I will add), so watch this site for all the insights, outrageous commentary and final farewells as we approach the final catwalk for Sookie.
There has been chatter across the net about what Charlaine is going to include and leave out. Like you, I am curious to see what actually is there. I cannot wait to finish it, though it will be sad to know it is the very last Sookie Stackhouse story I will enjoy!
Further Sookie Stackhouse is Coming
Of course, it is not the last we are going to be hearing of Sookie. No siree – there is more forthcoming even if it is not exactly a story of our gal. It won’t be the first time that Charlaine’s decided to do a book about the series characters, she did the two companion books back in 2011 and I don’t know about you but I really enjoyed them. She plans to do another one of these information books after the final chapter is completed. It will be called After Dead and will feature what happened to the characters at the end of the series. You can even pre-order it in either the Kindle After Dead or After Dead in Hardcover right here at our links.
So stay tuned folks. While it may be the last adventure of our gal Sookie, there is always the hope that Charlaine will miss her and bring her back. Until then, we have two more books to enjoy and of course the television show True Blood to keep the adventures of Sookie and friends alive. I will be reviewing both books here just as soon as I can complete them. See you with the latest in Sookie Stackhouse fun and adventures in vampire love and more soon.
Well, the penultimate book of the Sookie Stackhouse series, Deadlocked Book 12 of series was indeed one for the fans. Even with a dead body on the lawn to bring a murder mystery into the story, in Deadlocked book 12 it wasn’t the plot that gave us all satisfaction, it was the return to Sookie Stackhouse and those so familiar characters. We may all know that Harris is wrapping things up for the Sookie Stackhouse gang, but that doesn’t stop us from wanting our HEA ending when the time comes.
Putting aside the murder mystery, there was a great deal of wrapping up of old story threads in Deadlocked book 12 of the series. Sookie Stackhouse isn’t getting any younger and since she has made the choice to not go vamp, she is at 28 seeing many of the others around her settling into marriages or having babies. The clock is ticking for Sookie Stackhouse, will she find the one she is meant to be with?
In the end there is a kind of sadness to Deadlocked book 12 in this series. Perhaps some of it comes from the knowledge that there is just one more book left in the series. But for many, the story has run itself out and it is time to let our Sookie Stackhouse find her man and her place in life.
If there was ever any hope that the long tall Viking would be Sookie Stackhouse’s end story, that hope is pretty much killed in Deadlocked book 12. Erik has finally revealed his true nature, and his hunger for power is exposed as he ponders just how much influence would be bestowed on him if he does become the consort for the Queen of Oklahoma. Poor Sookie Stackhouse doesn’t have a hope of saving her heart from his cruelty now. We all saw this coming, and though Erik may not have yet made his choice, I think that by Deadlocked Book 12 we all see the writing on the wall for this one, as does Sookie Stackhouse.
I found myself sorta rooting for Bill still, but perhaps too much happens here that points to that being out of the question. Who Sookie Stackhouse will finally decide on becomes clearer by the end of Deadlocked book 12, but I don’t want to give anything away here. So lets just say it has the possibilities of making our Sookie happy. That is all any of us want for her.
There is closure for the Fae, though maybe not in the way I thought there would be. Of course, they become the key to unlocking the truth in the heart of Sookie Stackhouse. It is a bittersweet closure for this part of the story, but one that was ultimately satisfying by the end of Deadlocked book 12 that will be missing maybe in 13.
If you have been following the series all along, then this one is definitely for you. Deadlocked Book 12 of the adventures of our favorite southern belle is the shoe dropping, waiting for the last one to go. But it is still great to return again to Bon Temps and visit all these great familiar places. One more left to go – but Deadlocked Book 12 still shines for me.
Yup it is true that our own Sookie, Anna Paquin is a pretty private gal, and you know I am not so sure that is a bad thing. There was an interview with her in this month’s Zooey and they tried to get her to open up more about her private life. What she had to say was, to me at least, a welcome sign that not everyone in Hollywood feels a need to blurt their life across the web. Here is what she said,
“I think it’s important to have things that are just for you and people that are closest to you. Some people share absolutely everything, but then what do you have left that’s yours? It diminishes what’s really special in your life.”
Of course, that doesn’t mean we don’t want a peek at the shoot for her cover feature for the publication. While the clothes are gorgeous, and check out those shoes they are to die for, our gal Sookie looks just a tad bored with the whole thing.
Could it be she is missing her mates from True Blood? Here is the shoot:
Bromance for Eric and Bill?
And speaking of our gal Sookie, now that Sookie has said she wants to do a Marlene Dietrich (“I vant to be alone “– for those too young to get the reference) it is being said that this next season will see Eric and Bill put differences aside and team up to fight a common foe. In fact, Alexander Skargård has said that their relationship may be more like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. So – do they get to ride horses and have gun battles? I don’t think that is what he means but remembering the wonderful fun chemistry between the two actors in that film, I think that if Alexander is referencing that in a quote, then that is what he and Stephen Moyer will probably reach for. This should be a lot of fun!
Stay tuned for more great True Blood scoops and sighs in the upcoming weeks as we get closer then ever to that premiere date for the new season!
