All Together Dead is the seventh book in Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse series. In this book Sookie finds herself attending the Vampire summit in the north at the Queen of Louisiana’s behest. Sophie-Anne Leclerq wants Sookie to use her telepathic abilities to check the human contingent in the hotel and see who may be involved in her betrayal. During this time attempts are made on the lives of the vampires and Sookie may prove to be integral in their survival.
I was thoroughly entertained with this one, despite my having read another book in the middle of it (The Great Gatsby). Sookie and company are always a riot, though I am growing weary of her relationship with Quinn. He’s alright, but it’s ultimately doomed. He’s not Eric Northman, and that’s who I (and everyone else) wants her to end up with (please DO NOT give me any spoilers to ruin this fantasy for me). I feel that Quinn is just killing time to make the readers pine for Eric. And that’s all.
On a TV related note – I do not know how the hell they are going to do this book considering that one of the main characters in this book was already killed off in the series? Not that HBO seems to be following the books super closely, but still… there’s always at least SOME element of similarity to the books, and this one skews the TV formula completely. It’s going to be interesting, to say the least, when season 7 comes about.
4 out of 5 stars.
