Dead in the Family - Book Review

Dead in the Family (Sookie Stackhouse #10)
by Charlaine Harris

What is it about:
It's all about family ...

Sookie Stackhouse is dealing with a whole host of family problems, ranging from her own kin (a non-human fairy and a telepathic second cousin) demanding a place in her life, to her lover Eric's vampire sire, an ancient being who arrives with Eric's 'brother' in tow at a most inopportune moment. And Sookie's tracking down a distant relation of her ailing neighbour (and ex), Vampire Bill Compton.

In addition to the multitude of family issues complicating her life, the werewolf pack of Shreveport has asked Sookie for a special favour, and since Sookie is an obliging young woman, she agrees. But this favour for the wolves has dire results for Sookie, who is still recovering from the trauma of her abduction during the Fairy War.

What did I think of it:
It's been awhile since I read the previous book, but I finally decided to try to continue this series.

And maybe this isn't the best book to pick up after being in a series slum. it was slow.

The previous book had lots of action and heartbreak, so maybe it's not so strange that Sookie is taking things easy, but for me it felt like ages before the story was going somewhere. Still I decided to stick to it and finally stuff started to happen and I was dragged into the world again. At the end of the book I was happy enough about developments that I might just pick up book 11 soon.

Why should you read it:
It's an enjoyable UF read.
