Sookie’s boyfriend has been very distant-in another state, distant. Now she’s off to Mississippi to mingle with the underworld at Club Dead-a little haunt where the vampire elite go to chill out. But when she finally finds Bill–caught in an act of betrayal–she’s not sure whether to save him…or sharpen some stakes.
I liked Club Dead! It’s been a pretty entertaining series to read so far, ad even though I’m not in love with the series, I’m still having fun reading it.
Sookie is still having a lot of adventures, and trouble definitely seems to find her. This time, Bill disappears and ends up with someone he used to be involved with. Things don’t end well for them, and things also get really interesting with Eric too. I feel like it’s being set up for her to end up with Eric at some point, but I tend to be wrong about things like this sometimes, so my guess could be completely wrong. But I really feel like things are headed in that direction, even if it ends up not being a relationship. We’ll see what happens for Sookie romantically because there’s always the chance she’ll get back together with Bill.
We meet some werewolves in this book! In a world with shapeshifters and vampires and people with special powers like Sookie, it stands to reason we’d meet some werewolves along the way. It makes me wonder who else we’ll meet in this series.
We also learn a little more about how the vampires are structured. It’s cool, though, because I feel like we’re getting deeper into this world. We’re definitely learning things as Sookie does, which works well. We’re right there with her as she finds herself in this really interesting situations. I think that’s why the series is fun and entertaining for me. And this kind of book is right up my alley. I’m really looking forward to seeing where things go from here.
Even though I liked Club Dead, I also feel like I’ve said everything I wanted to say, so I think I’m going to cut this one short!
3 stars. Club Dead is fun and an enjoyable read. Sookie is great, as always, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
