Malin’s #CBR5 Review #52: Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris

I complete my Cannonball Read this year (yay!) with the final book about Sookie Stackhouse. While the book 12 in the series was in the top three worst books I read in 2012, this one wasn’t great, but it wasn’t awful either. It probably helps to have low expectations. Be warned, it does contain a spoiler about the end of Deadlocked (book 12), so if you haven’t read it (and if this is the case, do yourself a favour and DON’T), you may want to skip the first bit of my review. Enough talk, right? Go forth, to my blog, and read for yourself.

  1. Congratulations! I gave up on this series somewhere around book 9? I didn’t even do it on purpose, I just never got that excited about the sequels and didn’t keep up with them – I love reading everyone else’s reviews though and I was also hoping for a “she chooses herself” kind if scenario given how much the male love interests have changed for the worse.

    • I tried intently not to spoil anything before reading the book, I just knew that a lot of people on the internet were pissed off because of the ending. I really wish that occasionally, a paranormal fantasy heroine could pick herself, but it seems unlikely to happen any time soon. I can’t help but notice that male protagonists in urban/paranormal fantasy (Felix Castor, Harry Dresden) don’t seem to struggle with romantic complications in the same way. Strange that…

  2. Congratulations! Do you know that your winning 52nd review from CBR4 was Deadlocked? You probably do know, but I didn’t click through to the review because I want to read the book first. Congrats again!

    • Yes, I am aware of that. I guess the release schedule for these books has just very conveniently happened to coincide with my fifty-second book review of the year. I actually considered reading something else instead, but decided that it would make for nice symmetry to two years in a row with a Sookie book.

    • Thank you. I think I manage because I don’t have much of a social life. My favourite thing to do is to curl up with a book. Occasionally I go to the cinema. The blogging is the hardest part.
