Books 1-3 were just ok to me. Sookie’s naivety gets old quick. I think one line at the end of book 2 was that she needed assistance from a stranger to use a pay phone, having never seen one in her 26 years? But I keep reading because I liked the True Blood series, and I wanted to see the differences between the two, especially the differences involving Eric because his confidence and swagger in the series made him my favorite character. His one liners were the best. This book has been my favorite so far. It’s quite a bit steamier, which is a plus, and the last paragraph and sentence of the book were so totally Eric that it makes me really want to read book 5, just to see where they go from here.
