I love the Southern Vampire Series by Charlaine Harris. Sookie Stackhouse is the main character of the series and she is one funny lady. Charlaine Harris is a very good author and I love her books but I only have her Sookie Stackhouser a.k.a. the Southern Vampire Series but she has other books and another series that she writes and which I’ve heard are really good. So far there are 8 published books in the series but the 9th book in the series called Dead and Gone is coming out on Tuesday, May 5. I’ve read the first 7 books before it became it hit HBO TV series called True Blood and though I don’t have HBO I’ve seen the first episode of the show at a friends house. I thought it was pretty good but you know how things are when they turn a book into a movie or TV show. It’s not the same but at least you have a visual of each character so when you read the books again or read future books in the series you have an idea of what each character looks like.

After reading the fourth book Dead to the World I was wondering a bit how Charlaine Harris would make Sookie’s life more interesting and exciting. I also was wondering if Eric would ever get his memory back about all the beautiful and wonderful moments that he and Sookie spent together in book 4. Well I have to say that this book was just as good as the last because now Sookie’s brother Jason is a were-panther but he can’t transform into a full panther because he was only bitten. Then a sniper sets his deadly sights on the local changeling population—and Jason’s new panther brethren suspect he may be the shooter. Now, Sookie has until the next full moon to find out who’s behind the attacks—unless the killer decides to find her first. Sookie goes through so much in this novel for her brother but she also has to deal with her own safety at the same time.

There were a couple of new characters introduced in this novel that I enjoyed reading about along with some previous characters that came back in this novel. I learned a lot about Sookie’s relationship with her brother since I know that Sookie would do anything for Jason but I don’t think Jason would do the same for Sookie. I’m not a fan of Jason because he is a self-centered man who doesn’t think of anyone even his own sister but himself first. By the end of this novel I wanted more Sookie and her life full of vampires, werewolves and other were animals. I also have to say that the covers of each new Sookie Stackhouse – Southern Vampire series gets more interesting and I love them. Here is the description of the books from the back covers and pictures:
DEAD AS A DOORNAIL $ 22.95 (Book 5)(295 Pages)(also in mass market paperback for $ 7.99)


Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She’s pretty and well-mannered and has only a few close friends—which isn’t surprising, since not many people can appreciate Sookie’s abilities as a mind reader. It’s not a quality that has the guys beating down her door—unless they’re vampires, werewolves, or other supernatural beings. And now some of them aren’t just friendly—they’re family. When Sookie sees her brother Jason’s eyes start to change, she knows he’s about to turn into a werepanther for the first time—a transformation he embraces more readily than most shapeshifters she’s known. But her concern for her brother becomes fear when a sniper sets his deadly sights on the local changeling population—and Jason’s new panther brethren suspect he may be the shooter. Now, Sookie has until the next full moon to find out who’s behind the attacks—unless the killer decides to find her first…

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
