Review: Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris

    Everything and everyone seem to suddenly be veering completely out of control and as usual the quirky Sookie Stackhouse is front and center of it all. It seems she just can’t keep her sweet southern self safe from the interactions of those pesky supernatural beings and who can blame her seeing that she is married to the powerful vampire Eric Northman(at least for the time being that is) and part other-worldly being herself.

Since that tiny bit of faery blood runs through her veins allowing her to read the minds of others telepathically, she seems to always be caught up in the machinations of those that surround her whether she joins willingly or not. In that respect within the somewhat poetic pages of Deadlocked not much has changed. Whether the world of Faery, the kingdoms of the vampires or the restless packs of were Sookie seems to be ever in demand. However suddenly her relationships to this out of this world collection of creatures have converged into one and it is a convergence of danger rather than safety.

The killing of the powerful vampire Victor in the former book Dead Reckoning has come back to haunt all who were involved both human and vampire alike. Unwelcome visitors have arrived including a vamp queen seductress intent upon luring Eric away from Sookie with promises and a pledge of power and wealth. As Eric is made vulnerable after an unfortunate feeding incident, the ever-loyal Sookie sets out to help in his exoneration with an array of characters against and at her side including her former lover Bill Compton.

But as the clues fall into place Sookie soon finds betrayal may surround her in the places she suspected it least and the very foundations of her life may be shaken to their very roots. As the otherworldly seem to come together in a plot designed to take everything Sookie holds dear, she must decide whether to fight or become resigned to the fate the supernaturals have decreed. A powerful object could answer all her prayers but only if she has the true sight to see what means the most and use it correctly. Will she lose Eric forever or find that the love she has long sought has been by her side all along?

In the latest suspenseful installment of the supernatural world of Bon Temps, Louisiana; worlds collide setting up the perfect stage for Charlaine Harris’ final words and her ultimate plans for the future of her dear Sookie. With only one book remaining it’s never been more important for Sookie Stackhouse to follow her heart and discover the path and being that she’s destined for. Unfortunately for the eager readers and die-hard fans alike they will have to wait a whole year to learn just who that being is.
