Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris

a review by Nalini Haynes

Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris is the second-last in her Sookie Stackhouse series upon which True Blood is loosely based.  It’s paranormal fantasy with werewolves, vampires, shapeshifters, fairies, witches, telepaths, you name it.  Sookie, her family and friends have been through lots of adventures, murders, threats, sex, drugs and rock’n’roll.  As the second-last in the series, Charlaine has been wrapping up story lines, closing off characters and she’s leading in to the final story.  I’m looking forward to the conclusion.

This is not a ‘jumping on’ point for the series; if you are a newcomer, I recommend you start with book one.  Overall if this series was food, it’d be chocolate; it’s overall light and escapist fun.
