For some reason, the same person keeps on trying to **Spoiler Alert** kill her in a half dozen ways throughout the book. This does not forward the story at all. Gang of thugs here, gang of thugs there, even one of her multiple escapes which is supposed to be exciting is very disjointed and bizarre. Charlaine Harris's usual style is to have a one or possibly two major incidents when someone is out to get Sookie with minor incidents to back up and question motives. This one is very overt and feels like the author made no attempt to integrate these incidents into what was going on. We know the attacker, we know what and why they are doing it, where is the mystery?
I was astounded that a major, major thing between Sookie and Eric is treated as an afterthought. Something that would, in the other books, have created all kinds of feelings and expression fall flat at a pancake. We've been building it up about for 10 books, but oh well, let's talk about it lamely over a coke and a True Blood and be interrupted within a few lines. They could have been discussing whose turn it was to take out the garbage. **Spolier Alert End**
I couldn't find one happy moment in this book. Not one. Sad and dreary is the order of the day.
Dead Reckoning begins with Sookie, with the help of Dermot and Claude, cleaning out her attic. Of course she finds something special in the midst of all the trash, something which will change the way she looks at the world and her relationships. In the meantime, things seem to be deteriorating with Eric as they try to take action against Viktor. And in the midst of all this action, someone is anxious to harm Sookie and sends several gangs of thugs to take her out. So, as usual, there is a lot going on!
Unfortunately Pam is on a short leash so we don't get her funny, snarky comments, and Bill is rarely evident (though important when he is around). It's difficult to know if Harris is really trying to end the series, though it does seem as if Eric is on the way out. My guess is that Sam and Sookie will end up together at some point, and I'm okay with that. All in all, the series is still enjoyable though maybe not as fun. But I'll keep reading!
Also, how dense does Harris think we all are? Like others said, I'm a little insulted. Nobody picks up the 11th book in a series and just reads it cold, with no background or previous knowledge (and if they did, they shouldn't), so there's no need to write like your readers are hearing about these characters for the first time in the 11th book of the series. I am so sick of reading the same things over and over in each book. By this point, we all know about fairies' allergies to iron and lemons. We all know Dermot looks a heck of a lot like Jason, and we all remember the troubles this previously caused. And for pete's sake, we certainly all know the whole store behind Elvis becoming a vampire... yet in every single book, Harris recounts all of this to us in vivid detail, as though this is certainly the first time we are hearing about any of it. I'm not exaggerating when I say that half of the material that makes up this book is stuff I've already read before. Enough is enough.
Also, as others have mentioned, there are some pretty fierce continuity problems that make this book really difficult to enjoy, but that has been thoroughly discussed I believe.
The only reason I keep reading these books is because I feel like I'm in too deep now, and I can't just stop. I've heard from others that Harris is contracted for 13 books in this series, and I've also heard that she herself is ready to finish the series, so hopefully the next one will be the last one. I've thoroughly enjoyed this series, but if Harris hasn't got her heart in this project any longer (and I think it's obvious that she does not, based upon the declining quality of her work in recent years), then I wish she would quit writing these and just leave us with our fond memories.
