Murder, mystery, and mayhem abound in Charlaine Harris’ 7th addition to the Southern Vampire series: All Together Dead.
This time, telepath Sookie Stackhouse is headed to a vampire summit as sole witness to the murder of a vampire king. But when a room full of vampires are killed almost as soon as she arrives, Sookie realizes she’s in more danger than she imagined.
Meanwhile, Sookie has a lot to deal with on the relationship level. She feels torn between her feelings for Quinn, the weretiger, and Eric, the vampire she’s bonded with (whether she likes it or not).
Trying to put her emotions and feelings aside, Sookie must quickly discover who may be behind the attacks and potential assassinations before her enemy’s plans are executed.
As always, Harris’ characters are vivid and exciting. Sookie has changed a lot since the first couple books, as she finds herself in such horrific situations as the story progresses.
Even in such a popular subgenre as vampire fiction, Harris’ Southern Vampire series stands out as one of my all-time favorites.
