Review: Definitely Dead by Charlaine Harris

Title: Definitely Dead (Southern Vampire Series #6)
Author: Charlaine Harris
Pages: 324
Publisher: Ace
ISBN: 0441014917
Spiked with a frothy fusion of romance, mystery, and fantasy, this bestselling series sends the supernaturally gifted cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse to New Orleans, where she has to deal with the legacy of one of her own family and a host of potentially dangerous characters.

Definitely Dead is the 6th installment in the Southern Vampire Mysteries of Chalaine Harris. I actually liked this book and it was as fun as all the books in the series but with additional characters that made the plot more interesting. In Definitely Dead, Sookie is designated to clean up and fix her dead vampire cousin, Hadley, place where she met Amelia who is a talented witch and Hadley's landlord. During the process, Sookie discovered a newly turned vampire who was once a shifter and both ladies were attacked when the vampire risen.

Amelia and her friends wanted to do a reconstruction to know what happened to Hadley and how the vampire ended up in Hadley's place. This event was overseen by Sophie-Anne Leclerq who is Louisiana's queen and Hadley's lover. In the event, Sophie-Anne Leclerq asked Sookie if she can find something that belongs to her since it is an important object in the marriage of Sophie-Anne Leclerq and her king.

Sookie and her new boyfriend Quinn was later on attacked and kidnapped by Were who delivered them to the Pelts family. The events didn't stop there since Sookie and Quinn attended Sophie-Anne Leclerq party that turned into violence. Later on, Sookie returned to Bon Temps together with Amelia as her new room mate.

Love and hate relationship with this book. Glad that the truth finally came out of Bill about his stay in Bon Temps and there's no chance that his relationship with Sookie will rekindle since I didn't really felt their connection in the first place. Not so sure about Sookie and Quinn's relationship but it's going smooth and okay so far. Sophie-Anne Leclerq is an intriguing character, as well as her entourage so looking forward on those characters. Bit disappointed that I didn't read more about Eric though. Definitely Dead still had the same spunk and hilarious element to it but I just felt that something missing. I wanted more, or I expected more from this book. Another thing, since most of the books has a lot of interweaving stories, it's harder to keep track on each sub plots. But regardless, it is still an enjoyable book! Very entertaining and the characters are getting better and better.
