What Definitely Dead is the sixth book in the Sookie Stackhouse series. If you want to find out more about the series or start at the top, you can find all my reviews for the series at the bottom of this article!
Sookie is back for a new mission. She has left her small town for New Orleans and is using her telepathic powers to help the vampire queen. Well, help isn’t the right word. She was ordered to investigate the death of her vampire cousin, Hadley. And she doesn’t really know yet, why the queen would want such a thing. But it’s just a matter of time before she uncovers the truth…
I absolutely loved this book. The main plot point that I loved is that Sookie is finally really out of her element and left to learn new things. The fact that she now lives in New Orleans makes her more interesting than ever. She now has witch friends and a new boyfriend, a weretiger named Quinn.
Periodically, before I start reading these books, I always wonder if I’m going to continue reading on the series. But every time, I find myself sucked into the story and the lore of the universe. And with this one, it was even better than before! I really love how Charlaine Harris always manages to surprise me. I think I know where the story is going to go, but I never quite manage to figure it out.
What I also really loved about this novel is that, once again, the lore of the universe is expanded. We get to spend time with vampire royalty and learn more about the witches in the universe.
