Genre Go Round Reviews has posted a review of Dead Reckoning. Overall it is quite positive and Ms. Harriet Klausner goes beyond the usual synopsis of the Merlotte’s fire bombing and the plan to kill Victor.
Here are some highlights:
Sookie becomes excited with finding a letter from her grandmother to her accompanied by a buried treasure.
We figured there were letters from Gran in the attic, but addressed to Sookie AND a buried treasure?
On her community board, Charlaine Harris has eliminated the sword as anything important that was laying around in the attic, (duckpond101 2011-03-03 10:56 “It’s really not important, frankly. ” ), so it must be something else that has been stashed up there. But “buried?” That seems to suggest the letter and the treasure were stored in a trunk or similar, so is it smaller than a bread box? Gack! What could it be? What could Gran have written to Sookie?
As for the book as whole:
This a terrific transition thriller as several subplots are closed and new ones seem started.
No vibes of doom and gloom in this review with words like “terrific” and “thriller” being thrown around, it sounds like it is going to be pretty, pretty good.
Super Sookie the sleuth has come a long way trusting in her abilities, but still is unable to read what makes others tick especially her lover the vampire who her instincts screams is about to embark on a dangerous quest.
Okay, maybe a little doom and gloom with Eric’s “dangerous quest”, but I’m not getting “let’s start working on our wreaths of malcontent from torn pages of our beloved books” vibes, as according to Ms. Klausner for fans of the series, this is one to be “relished.”
Come on, May 3rd!
