Dead to the World

I thought that after reading so much GRRM I should get re-acquainted with The Sookieverse before reading the newest installment in The Sookie Stackhouse Series (aka Southern Vampire Mysteries aka The Trueblood Series): “Deadlocked”. So I am re-reading the books that I have not yet reviewed. This may prove to be as challenging as finishing “A Clash of Kings” while watching Season 2 of Game of Thrones, as I am also currently watching Season 5 of Trueblood. But here goes…

This is a review of “Dead to the World” by Charlaine Harris. It is the fourth book in The Sookie Stackhouse Series and Season 4 of Trueblood is (loosely) based on this novel. It follows on from “Club Dead“.

Sookie is still hurting over her break-up with Vampire Bill. He was the first love of her life, and she has never been broken hearted before. Being telepathic has given her a reputation for being strange so suitors have never exactly been lining up to date her.

Driving home from her job late at night, Sookie spots a running man on the side of the road. She can’t ascertain what he’s running from, nor why he is barefoot and clad only in a pair of blue jeans, but she just cannot keep on driving when someone may be in need of her help.

As she slows down, she realizes that she knows the running man. And he’s no ordinary man. He’s Eric Northman, an old and powerful vampire and an acquaintance. But Eric doesn’t remember who she is, and even more strange, he doesn’t even remember who he is.

After calling on his vampire subordinates, Sookie realizes that Eric is in a whole lot of trouble.

He’s got a witch problem.

As Sookie tries to hide Eric’s location from the witches (who are actively seeking his whereabouts) while also trying to puzzle out exactly what’s going on, she is drawn deeper into the world of the supernatural: vampires, weres and witches.

A great light-hearted read. Fans of Eric Northman will enjoy this one.
