Book Review: Dead to the World (Sookie Stackhouse #4) by Charlaine Harris

When cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse sees a naked man on the side of the road, she doesn't just drive on by. Turns out the poor thing hasn't a clue who he is, but Sookie does. It's Eric the vampire--but now he's a kinder, gentler Eric. And a scared Eric, because whoever took his memory now wants his life.

Oh, boy.  This series keeps getting better.  I like how in each book one new supernatural being is revealed.  In book one we had the vampires and shapeshifters, book two had the Weres and the maenad, book three had a hobbit, and book four has a fairy.  Each book adds another layer of depth to the world Charlaine Harris has created. 

Remember when I asked if we could get through one book without Sookie being beaten to a pulp?  We finally did!  What a relief!

This is my favorite Sookie Stackhouse book, if you read it you'll understand why.  I couldn't help but notice that the library copy opened exactly to the best part, if you catch my drift.  Hmmm, guess I'm not the only Eric fan out there...

Just One Gripe:
Eric gets his memory back WAY too soon.
