Charlaine Harris’ Dead in the Family Book Review

March 17, 2010 by  

Many Charlaine Harris fans are waiting in anticipation for the May 2010 release of Charlaine Harris‘ 10th book, Dead in the Family.  Many are wondering what to expect and are anxious to get any tidbits regarding the storyline and information about their favorite telepathic waitress, Sookie presented their book review of Dead in the Family and based on what they stated it seems it is going to be a very interesting book.

Still reeling from the deaths of her fairy cousin, Claudine, and many others in 2009’s Dead and Gone, Sookie Stackhouse struggles with paranormal politics in her entertaining if slow-moving 10th outing. When Claudine‘s triplet, Claude, appears at her doorstep, Sookie reluctantly allows him to move in. The government threatens two-natures with mandatory registration, and tensions run high in the local Were pack. Then Eric‘s maker, a Roman named Appius Livius Ocella, arrives without warning, bringing along Alexei Romanov, whom he rescued from the Bolsheviks and turned into a vampire. Though the action often builds too slowly, the exploration of family in its many human and undead variations is intriguing, and Harris delivers her usual mix of eccentric characters and engaging subplots.

    I don’t think most of us will have a problem with “slow building” we just WANT it!!!

    Hee hee I’m kind of excited to see Sookie and Claude living together. It could either be absolutely horrible, or horribly entertaining.
