Dead and Gone

A Sookie Stackhouse Novel

In the ninth novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Sookie Stackhouse series, the werewolves and shifters come out of the closet and throw the small town of Bon Temps into a tailspin... Except for cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse, folks in Bon Temps, Louisiana, knew little about vamps-and nothing about Weres. Until now. The Weres and shifters have finally revealed their existence to the ordinary world, and the backlash may have claimed the life of someone Sookie knew. But her determination to find out who is responsible for the murder is put aside in the face of a far greater danger. A race of unhuman beings-older, more powerful, and more secretive than vampires or werewolves-is preparing for war. And Sookie will find herself an all-too-human pawn in their battle...

    The closer I got to the vampire bar, the more my pulse picked up. This was the downside to the blood bond I had with Eric Northman. I knew I was going to see him, and I was simply happy about it. I should have been worried, I should have been apprehensive about what he wanted, I should have asked a million questions about the velvet-wrapped bundle, but I just drove with a smile on my face.

    Though I couldn't help how I felt, I could control my actions. Out of sheer perversity, since no one had told me to come around to the employees' entrance, I entered through the main door. It was a busy night at Fangtasia, and there was a waiting crowd on benches inside the first set of doors. Pam was at the podium. She smiled at me broadly, showing a little fang. (The crowd was delighted.)

    I'd known Pam for a while now, and she was as close to a friend as I had among the vampires. Tonight the blonde vampire was wearing the obligatory filmy black dress, and she'd camped it up with a long, sheer black veil. Her white fingernails were polished scarlet.

    "My friend," Pam said, came out from behind the podium to hug me. I was surprised but pleased, and gladly hugged her back. She'd spritzed on a little perfume to eclipse the faint, rather dry, smell of vampire. "Have you got it?" she whispered in my ear.
    "Oh, the bundle? It's in my purse." I lifted my big brown shoulder bag by its straps.
    Pam gave me a look I couldn't interpret through the veil. It appeared to be an expression that compounded exasperation and affection. "You didn't even look inside?"

    "I haven't had time," I said. It wasn't that I hadn't been curious. I simply hadn't had the leisure to think about it.

    Pam gave me a long look of appraisal. "Go back to Eric's office and hand him the bundle," she said. "Leave it wrapped. No matter who's there. And don't handle it like it was a garden tool he'd left outside, either."

    I gave her the look right back. "What am I doing, Pam?" I asked, jumping on the cautious train way too late.

    "You're protecting your own skin," Pam said. "Never doubt it. Now go." She gave me a get-along pat on the back, and turned to answer a tourist's question about how often vampires needed to get their teeth cleaned.

    "Would you like to come very close and look at mine?" Pam asked in a sultry voice, and the woman shrieked with delighted fear. That was why the humans come to vampire bars, and vampire comedy clubs, and vampire dry cleaners, and vampire casinos . . . to flirt with danger.

    Every now and then, flirtation becomes the real thing.

    I made my way between the tables and across the dance floor to the rear of the bar. Felicia, the bartender, looked unhappy when she saw me. She found something to do that involved crouching down out of my sight. I had an unfortunate history with the bartenders of Fantasia.

    There were a few vampires seated throughout the bar area, strewn among the gawking tourists, the costumed vampire wannabes, and humans who had business dealings with the vamps. Over in the little souvenir shop, one of the New Orleans vampire refugees from Katrina was selling a Fangtasia T shirt to a pair of giggling girls.

    I walked through the bar and knocked on Eric's door. I heard his voice inside, telling me to come in. I stepped inside and shut the door behind me. "Hi, Eric," I said, and was almost rendered mute by the surge of happiness that swept through me whenever I saw him. His long blond hair was braided tonight, and he was wearing his favorite jeans-and-a-T combo. The T shirt tonight was bright green, making him look whiter than ever.

    The wave of delight wasn't necessarily related to Eric's gorgeousness or the fact that we'd bumped pelvises, though. The blood bond was responsible, and I had to fight the feeling.

    Maybe.

Great mixture of excitement and erotic!
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 05.09.2012

The vampires did it and the shapeshifter do it – they go public. And there is no question about it, that there will be troubles.

And there is no question about it, that there will be troubles. Crystal, Sookie’s pregnant sister in law and a true werepanther, gets crucified in front of Merlotte’s. The new vampire king Felipe isn’t as good as Sookie and Eric hoped and in order to protect her, Eric tricks her into a marriage according to vampire law. Sookie isn’t really happy about it and the troubles even get worse. The war between the fairies is about to begin… Charlaine Harris – just like we know and love her. Book 9 from the True Blood universe contains everything what the reader wants: a quick and fascinating storyline, new supernatural characters and a great mix of excitement and erotic tension with a dash of violence as well as humor and irony. And my most favorite character reappears – the vampire Bubba. There is only one thing to say “The King is alive” (more or less).

Weiterer toller Band!!!
von glücksklee am 26.12.2010

Ich bin ein Fan dieser Buchreihe von Charlaine Harris und dieser Band hat wieder einmal nicht enttäuscht! Es macht noch immer Spaß, Sookie auf ihrem Weg durchs Leben und bei der Entdeckung des Übernatürlichen in ihrem Leben zu begleiten. ^-^ Hoffentlich folgen noch viele Bände!

Sokie und das Chaos
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Kiel am 04.11.2009
Bewertet: Buch (gebunden)

Nicht eines der besten Bücher der Serie. Der Humor der ersten Bücher fehlt hier fast ganz. Ich frage mich, warum Sokie überhaupt noch Interesse an einigen ihrer sogenannten Liebhaber hat. Etwas zuviel Geleide für meinen Geschmack. Und Männer denken nicht wie Frauen. Es nervt mich, wenn Männer Frauenmonologe halten. Einige gute C... Nicht eines der besten Bücher der Serie. Der Humor der ersten Bücher fehlt hier fast ganz. Ich frage mich, warum Sokie überhaupt noch Interesse an einigen ihrer sogenannten Liebhaber hat. Etwas zuviel Geleide für meinen Geschmack. Und Männer denken nicht wie Frauen. Es nervt mich, wenn Männer Frauenmonologe halten. Einige gute Charaktere sterben und die Geschichte wird immer blutiger. Ich war gespannt auf die Entwicklung Eric/Sokie, wurde aber dann doch entäuscht. Zu wenig Leidenschaft. Trotzdem hoffe ich natürlich darauf, dass das nächste Buch wieder besser wird.
