Dead and Gone: Review

Dead and Gone
(Sookie Stackhouse / Southern Vampire Series #9)
by Charlaine Harris
For Sookie Stackhouse, the day to day activities of the vampire and were communities in and around Bon Temps, Louisiana, are of vital interest, She's blood-bound to the leader of the vamps, a friend to the local were pack, works for a man who is shifter, and has a brother who is a were-panther…
But for most of the humans in Bon Temps, the vamps are mysterious seductive creatures-and they don't even know about the weres.
Until now. The weres and shifters have finally decided to follow the lead of the undead and reveal their existence to the ordinary world.
At first it seems to go well. Then the mutilated body of a were-panther is found in the parking lot of the bar where Sookie works. The victim is someone she knows, so she feels compelled to discover who-human or otherwise-did the deed.
But what she doesn't realize is that there is a far greater danger than the killer threatening Bon Temps. A race of unhuman beings--older, more powerful and far more secretive than vampires or werewolves-- is preparing for war. And Sookie will find herself an all-too human pawn in their battle…

Just when you think there couldn't possibly be any more drama in Sookie's life and for the town she lives in.... WRONG! Charlaine Harris is fantastic when it comes to writing about these characters, at times you have to remind yourself that these characters are not real! It is so easy to relate and feel for the characters she writes about, and the ones in this book are no different. The cliff hanger left at the end of this book makes you wish time flew by so you could get you hands on the next book in the series! Kudos to Charlaine Harris

I feel compelled to mention that this book is by far more graphic than the others in the series, just don't want to lead any readers to a book that might leave them uneasy, so I will lay this out there.

I am giving Dead and Gone 5 stars and it falls into these reading challenges...
