A review of Charlaine Harris’s ‘From Dead to Worse’ prologue


If this was The Lord of the Rings and I had a smart British voice like Cate Blanchett, I could tell you the background of the events of that fall in a really suspenseful way. And you’d be straining to hear the rest.

Only to know about Pam. And oh, LOL, Cate Blanchett’s British voice. That makes me laugh.  Describing yourself as wanting a British voice and not naming a British actress, of which there are an awful lot.

Sookie recaps the last book, and fills us in on a few more details of the repercussions of killing the king of Arkansas and hurricane Katrina.

Sophie-Anne lost her legs, several members of her entourage, and her dearest companion. Her life was saved by her half-demon lawyer, Mr. Cataliades. But her recuperation time was going to be lengthy, and she was in a position of terrible vulnerability.

Can’t she just have someone else’s legs transplanted or something?

Sookie takes the time to remember that her boyfriend Quinn is, in fact, alive. Maybe he’s going to actually be a major character in this book.

The werewolf pack of Shreveport are discussed for no apparent reason, and I suspect that they’re probably going to be important for the plot of this book.

What was I so busy thinking about? Weddings – and my missing boyfriend.

He’s not missing. You left him in Chicago, in a hospital, recovering from that arrow wound he got from defending you.

I get the feeling this is going to be a frustrating book.

My latest Supernatural review!

  1. I read this (the series up until book 10) a couple years ago and if memory serves correctly… this IS kind of a frustrating book in that some really random things come to light and YES the Shreveport pack is important but again a lot of randomness… I think this is one of the books that sometimes feels like more of a transition for the books that come later in the series… {Then again I’m only going off my memory here}… HAPPY READING!
