Review: From Dead To Worse by Charlaine Harris

Title: From Dead to Worse (Southern Vampire Mystery #8)
Author: Charlaine Harris
Pages: 359
Publisher: ACE
ISBN: 0441015891 

After the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina and the manmade explosion at the vampire summit, everyone—human and otherwise—is stressed, including Louisiana cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse, who is trying to cope with the fact that her boyfriend Quinn has gone missing.
It’s clear that things are changing—whether the weres and vamps of her corner of Louisiana like it or not. And Sookie—Friend to the Pack and blood-bonded to Eric Northman, leader of the local vampire community—is caught up in the changes.
In the ensuing battles, Sookie faces danger, death, and once more, betrayal by someone she loves. And when the fur has finished flying and the cold blood finished flowing, her world will be forever altered.

From Dead to Worse is the 8th installment in the Southern Vampire Mysteries. Sookie is back again with another adventure and more complications in her supposedly normal life being human and all but that isn't the case with our Louisiana waitress. 

To start off, From Dead to Worse seemed to be a little steady compared to the other books that had high drama and hard core fight scenes. Although this book contains some heart pumping action, it seemed a little mellow compared to most of the books in the series. A lot of things happened in this installment - a lot of characters had been introduced and a few that said bye bye, shift in power in both the weres camp and the vampires, Sookie's relationship seems to be going in a different direction and really there's a whole lot more.  

What I love about this particular book is that it wasn't boring like some of the book in the series. There is still the humor and entertainment factor that I love which Harris seemed to have mastered with Sookie and the other characters, plus the effortless storytelling ability of Harris never seemed to fail me. I also loved how Harris seemed to take her time with the Sookie-Eric relationship which is why I am looking forward to reading the next installment  of the series! :)
