In Dead to the World, there was an introduction of the werewolf/shape shifting community which lead to a more detailed understanding of their social and political culture in Dead as a Doornail.
What did I think of this book?
Well, the werewolf community is a bit more complex and less interesting (for me) though Harris’s style of writing is still easy to read and the mystery surrounding the sniper was not so...mysterious. I unfortunately didn’t enjoy Dead as a Doornail as much as the rest of the other books I’ve read.
In Dead to the World, I thought that the list of suitors who were after Sookie was a tad annoying and unfortunately in Dead as a Doornail it was just too O.T.T.
Verdict: Hmmm… not my favourite in the series. The romance and the mystery was not as exciting and I kinda lost interest. I’m really hoping that Definitely Dead would be a better read.
I’m taking a short break from reading Sookie to catch up with the HBO series as well as my other unattended books in my TBR pile. I think I’m doing okay so far with the Sookie Stackhouse challenge; 5 down 2 more to go!
