Our advance reviews for Deadlocked are here, and we cannot wait for you all to get your hands on the latest in the Sookie series! In fact, we’re so excited, we’re giving away a copy of  Deadlocked to a lucky Truebie!

Book 12 in the Southern Vampire Mysteries, Deadlocked is the next to last book in the series. Here’s the official synopsis from Penguin:

It’s vampire politics as usual around the town of Bon Temps, but never before have they hit so close to Sookie’s heart…

Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she’d rather not know. And now that she’s an adult, she also realizes that some things she knows about, she’d rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one.

There’s a thing or two she’d like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town. It’s the worst possible time for a human body to show up in Eric’s front yard—especially the body of the woman whose blood he just drank.

Now, it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who’s set out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down.

    What I’d really like to see/read is a Diantha&Belenos scene, I think sparks would fly. But from the things that might happen in Book 12 some Sookie and Bubba scenes would be lovely, I always find that pairing so very endearing.

    I just started reading the books recently and I’m currently on book 5. I enjoy the books but honestly, I like the show better. But I have to admit, they are fun and easy read.

    I want to read more about Eric and his relationship with Sookie as I want them to be together, rather than Sookie ending up with Bill.

    I’m most looking forward to reading about the mysterious murdered woman in Deadlocked, and seeing how Sookie and Eric get to the bottom of what sounds like a major set up.
