Sophie Ann barely makes it out of the Katrina disaster alive. She doesn’t get out unscathed. It ruins her financially. After the aftermath of that, she’s summoned to trial for the death of her husband. Her name gets cleared, but the hotel she and a bunch of other vampires were staying in gets blown up. She gets very hurt but remains alive. Everything seems to be calming down. Sadly, they aren’t out of the danger yet. In the midst of all of this, Sookie is trying to come to terms with the fact that Quinn has gone missing with no word.
I’ve really enjoyed this series. This is technically my second time reading this series but in order this time. It may as well be my first. I don’t remember anything about it. I’m really enjoying it. Maybe not as much as I first did, but I enjoy it still. This particular one made me a little sad. Sookie seemed to be going through so much and had nobody to really turn to. I really felt for her. I won’t get into everything being that I don’t really spoil things in any of my reviews, but I’m sure I’m not the only one who was empathetic with her in this one.
There wasn’t really anything I didn’t care for in this book. Honestly, most of them are really petty and not worth complaining over. One of the issues I had with the book was that everybody seems so disconnected from Sookie in this one. However, I’m willing to admit that this story is told from Sookie’s point of view. It’s very possible that she’s perceiving them as not understanding her. That’s one of the best and worst things about first person. You only see it from their point of view. You only get their thoughts and their points of view.
This book was narrated by Johanna Parker. She also narrated the books before this one in the series. She just has this very authentic with her tones for every character. My heart will seriously break if I find out that this woman doesn’t have a real southern accent. She’s that good with it! If it is not authentic, it really does show how talented she really is in my opinion. I can’t wait to hear her narration of the rest of the series.
I’ve really enjoyed this series so far. There are times I really don’t care for Sookie. She can be very stubborn and overly judgmental at times. She does have a good hear though. She means well. Too many people take advantage of that sadly. I know she’s just a fictional character, but let’s be honest, we all know somebody like her in real life. OR we are all like her. But I digress. I really am loving this series and I can’t wait to read the rest!
Thank you for Reading!
