Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris
This is book 12 of the Sookie Stackhouse series. Sookie, the barmaid from Bon Temps, Louisiana really seems to find trouble. This time she is summoned to a party where Felipe de Castro, vampire king of Louisiana, Arkansas and Nevada is feted by her boyfriend and vampire Eric Northman. Eric is in process of fang-banging a bright young thing when Sookie walks in. Later this same woman shows up dead and drained of blood on his front lawn.
First, Eric was what??? Where is any kind of loyalty to Sookie or better yet when is Sookie going to realize that vamps don't do loyalty. The how and what is the premise of this latest book in the series.
Sookie is also part owner of Merlotte's with Sam. This is a good move for her and sets Sam a little closer in her sightline.
I found this book a bit tedious. Like get over Eric already. Enough!! Harris just isn't making the vamps interesting anymore. I do like Sookie's activities with respect to the bar ownership. Will I read the last of the series. YEP
