Dead Ever After (Sookie Stackhouse, #13) - Charlaine Harris I have to remind myself this is an urban fantasy series and not a paranormal romance. I so wanted more relationship growth in here, but instead we see the culmination of Sookie's past troubles form her into a more mature woman who is living life on her terms, as we should have expected. Although this last book in the series is not flashy or full of steamy romance, I think the basics of why we love Sookie are still there.

I feel sympathy for Ms. Harris, who seems to have taken a beating from many or her readers for the plot choices in the last part of the series. Maybe part of the issue is her wild success with a TV show that produces stories that are so over the top that we start to expect that from the books. And that's just not Ms. Harris's style, never was.

So goodbye Sookie, and I'm confident you'll make sure your ending is a happily ever after.
