Sookie Stackhouse #5: Dead as a Doornail (2005)

Dead as a Doornail

Sookie Stackhouse was once again surrounded by vampires, were-animals, shape-shifters, n a fairy godmother. Alcide, the werewolf, needed her help in his father's bid to become the next leader of the local werewold pack. at the same time, Sam, the shape-shifter who happened to be her boss, got shot. to make things worst, her house was partly burned down. one way or another, supernatural related troubles just can't seemed to leave Sookie alone. vampire politics had her windup deep within, n now so had the were-society. it started right after Alcide asked for her company to a funeral, where a pack leader had just died. Alcide's father declared his challenge against another werewolf, for the position of the new pack leader. angry at being drawn into the conflict, Sookie failed to distance herself, especially when her brother, Jason, a new shape-shifter happened to be the suspect.

Charlain Harris managed to surprise me by making all the mishap that happened around Sookie felt so believable n real especially when it involved the supernatural beings she was surrounded in! to make things tastier, she finally stopped dwelling over her ex-boyfriend, vampire Bill. although her love life was every bit as complicated as usual, the turn of events especially when it involved her brother was very much intriguing! it was also exciting to learn more n more about the were-people. with her beloved house burned down, assassins were obviously sent to kill her. this was by far, one of the best entries for the Southern Vampire series!

  1. Sounds interesting! Honestly I have never read any book by this author! Thanks for sharing : )

  2. Sounds like another faaaaaaaaabulous book in the Southern Vampire series!

    It astounds me how much you read, Levian!

    I really do need to get back into reading again. There's nothing like sitting there with an actual paperbook and a cup of tea; allowing yourself to be transported.

    Thanks for sharing, my friend!

  3. Should be too complicated for me too. :p

  4. foong:
    you're welcome! she was quite a captivating author i have to say. it's worth a read!

    i can imagine you getting back into reading again. once you start, you can't stop! that's how i got to read so much. but once i stop, i kinda stop for quite a while as well. hah!

    haha, but if you start from its first book, it won't be. you'll be completely on the track.
