Sookie Stackhouse once tried to keep her mind-reading capabilities secret, but the word is definitely out in Bon Temps, Louisiana, her hometown, leading local police to call on her to help find a missing child. There's a new man, were-tiger Quinn, in the picture, too, but on their first date, two were-people attack them. Sookie isn't sure whether she or Quinn was the target but is soon distracted by a more pressing problem. Cousin Hadley, a vampire, has been murdered, and Sookie has inherited her apartment, meaning she has to go to New Orleans to uncover the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death and meet with Hadley's lover, the Vampire Queen herself. Though not quite as driven as past entries in Harris' Southern Vampire series--Sookie doesn't get to New Orleans until a third of the way in--this is a gratifying read for Sookie's fans because of a major surprise for Sookie about one of her old lovers

I am not going to lie I was not impressed by this book in this series, I think some other titles in this series were much better. However non the less this did continue on with the series and it did not stay which was very nice. When continuing on with Sookie's crazy world this book brings you into New Orleans where Sookie goes to clear out her cousins Hadley's apartment. This is when Sookie is brought into the world of Vampire Royalty, she has to visit the queen and learn the truth about Hadley's death. Along with all that Sookie has to figure out her relationship with Quinn the hunky tiger, and gets caught up in a war, talk about a vacation!

So now that your up to speed with the summary of the book let me fill you in on what I think =) Personally it was not one of my favorites, however it still kept me reading. I think the best part about the book was when Sookie went to meet the queen, everything else seemed like fillers. The plot seemed to be what killed it for me, the character development was great and the scenery was depicted well however the plot was wah wah wahhhhh. However as I said before it kept me reading and believe me the next books were great! So keep on reading my friends keep on reading!

So What Did You Think Of Definitely Dead?
Will You Read it?

Happy Reading!
