Favorite Lines: “Sitting here on your bed, smelling your scent,” he said in a voice so low I had to strain to hear it. “Sookie…I remember everything.” (p. 215)
Louisiana vampires were weakened by Hurricane Katrina and the attack at the vampire summit. Their numbers are down, their finances diminished and their queen out of commission.
The werewolf community is divided after several pack members are murdered and suspicion falls upon the pack leader.
As a friend to the vampires and werecreatures, Sookie Stackhouse, is very aware of the changes wracking the community around her. Despite this she can’t help but wonder about her almost boyfriend, Quinn. He was badly injured in the attack at the vampire summit and she hasn’t seen or heard from him in the month that has passed.
From Dead to Worse features most of the characters we’ve met in the series. Alcide the werewolf, Bill, Eric, Pam and other vampires, the Hotshot were panthers, Sam, Tara, Quinn, ect…all make an appearance that leads to betrayal, remembrances, attempts at reconciliation and truces.
Sookie’s heritage is a big topic in this book. We learn why she’s so attractive to the supernatural men and it’s a little different from what Bill said in the beginning. (You know that the more vampire blood she drank the more appealing the supernatural men would find her.)
I was really disappointed in Quinn too. After the last couple of books, it seemed like they were making a little headway, but obviously I was wrong. I’m also waiting for Quinn’s murderous actions to come to light. They will, I’m sure. I just don’t know when.
