Book Review: Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris

Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse #12)Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is certainly not the best book of the series. It's probably closer to 2 and a half stars from me. The murder doesn't happen until chapter three! The pacing was slow in places, and the author does have a habit of providing so many character names you can lose track. I think some characters can remain nameless - really they can!

However, the ending did redeem itself, and I do enjoy Sookie's thoughts. This book is brain candy like all the rest. I just wonder if Charlaine Harris has tried too hard to please the readers by stretching it out too much - this book is like some of the others, a filler.

And there certainly isn't the same level of sex. (This may disappoint some).


I love that Bill loves her no matter what - and yet would never ever convert her to a vampire (not that she would beg for it). Have I said before how much I LOVE Bill?

But I also love Sam, too. Just because he's a good guy and he's a breather.

I am hoping Sookie gets her wish, and will get married and have children, and lead a normal-ish life. She will get her happy ever after basically. I'm hoping this will be with Sam. If book 13 doesn't deliver this, I will be disappointed. lol!

I'm all for the romance and happy ever afters me.

  1. Interesting review. I watch the True Blood TV show, so I couldn't read the books when I tried as they were too repetitive, yet different. If that makes any sense. lol

    I too love happy endings. Always :)

    1. I'm so glad I read the books before catching True Blood. It's a better way to do it. I don't mind the repetition, I enjoy how they've 'visualised' the books.

      Plus the TV series is different to the books in some ways. The books are only from Sookie's pov too.

  2. I would have loved to have discovered the books before I saw the TV show. I can always enjoy a movie or TV program AFTER I've read the books, as I too feel it brings the stories to life. But I can never read books a show is based on AFTER I've seen it. Which totally sucks really! ;)
