Book Review: 2 Treasure Boxes
A Sooke Stackhouse Novel (The Southern Vampire Mysteries), Book 8
Publisher: Ace (TRD); 1 edition (May 6 2008), Hardcover: 368 pages, ISBN-10: 9780441015894, ISBN-13: 978-0441015894
Sooke Stackhouse, a cute, sweet, down–to-earth barmaid becomes involved with several unrelated but life threatening situations involving either vampires or werewolves. This book takes place just after Hurricane Katrina and it deals with the impact this disaster had on the supernatural community.
From Dead to Worse is the eighth book in The Southern Vampire Mysteries series (also known as A Sooke Stackhouse Novel ), there are currently a total of eleven books with book twelve scheduled to be released May 2012. All the books are contemporary fantasy but are also known as urban fantasy. They also fall into the romance genre. The story is told in the first person narrative with Sooke’s voice and thoughts as we follow her around.
The story was engaging and interesting. We learn a couple of more interesting things about Sooke that help to explain why she is telepathic. Sooke’s love life is pretty depressing, but as always, Eric Northman, the gorgeous vampire helps to spice it up a little bit. I loved how this book ended, it left me wanting more and I am going to start reading Dead and Gone as soon as I can!
This is a standalone book, but it should be read as part of the series and in the proper order. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading contemporary, urban fantasy books that focus on life with vampires and werewolves. I think it is one of the better series in the genre. So if you enjoy reading about contemporary vampires that includes some romance then try From Dead to Worse.
