From Dead to Worse is the eighth book in the Sookie Stackhouse series. It was because I was watching True Blood. And wanted to see if the book was better than the show because the show was terrific. But I was kind of disappointed. The show was way better than the books, but as it was still entertaining, I continued reading the books.
I want to be first. I know that’s selfish, and maybe unattainable, and maybe shallow. But I just want to come first with someone. If that’s wrong of me, so be it. I’ll be wrong. But that’s the way I feel.
After the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina and the man-made explosion at the vampire summit, everyone human and otherwise is stressed. Including Louisiana cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse, who is trying to cope with the fact that her boyfriend Quinn has gone missing.
Things are changing whether the weres and vamps of her corner of Louisiana like it or not. And Sookie, Friend to the Pack and blood-bonded to Eric Northman, leader of the local vampire community, is caught up in the changes.
In the ensuing battles, Sookie faces danger, death, and once more, betrayal by someone she loves. And when the fur has finished flying and the cold blood ended flowing, her world will be forever altered.
Okay, so honestly, it’s been a while since I’ve read the book, and it didn’t make that much of an impression. So I don’t remember it so well. But from what I remembered, it was a good continuation of the last book, and the books are getting better each time.
What I liked about it is this novel was that Sookie finally got more confident in herself and in what she can do. She finally stopped being a winy girl and became a true, strong woman capable of making her own choice and asserting them to everyone.
