Book Review: Dead As a Doornail

Title: Dead as a Doornail
Series: Southern Vampire Mysteries/Sookie Stackhouse (Book 5)
Author: Charlaine Harris
Published: 2006

Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She's pretty and well-mannered and has only a few close friends - which isn't surprising, since not many people can appreciate Sookie's abilities as a mind reader. It's not a quality that has the guys beating down her door - unless they're vampires, werewolves, or other supernatural beings. And now some of them aren't just friendly - they're family." "When Sookie sees her brother Jason's eyes start to change, she knows he's about to turn into a werepanther for the first time - a transformation he embraces more readily than most shapeshifters she's known. But her concern for her brother becomes cold fear when a sniper sets his deadly sights on the local changeling population - and Jason's new panther brethren suspect he may be the shooter." Now, Sookie has until the next full moon to find out who's behind the attacks - unless the killer decides to find her first.

My Review: No one can say that Sookie Stackhouse has a boring life. In just a few days she gets shot, someone burns down her house, and tries to kill her. And as if it isn't enough to have to worry about her own life, someone is also trying to execute Sookies new friends, the were and shifters.

And in the middle of all this, Sookie is being courted by no less than five guys, all some kind of supernatural being, and they're not only after her help and telepathic ability, they're also after her heart. . . Watch out, Sook!

Dead as a Doornail is filled with the familiar Bon Temps characters, our most beloved bachelors, crime, murder and adventure. Another great installment in the Sookie Stackhouse series!

I liked this one too, though I thought it was one of the weaker ones in the series. I am just tearing through these books though! I love them! Check out my review of this one here:
