Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse #12) by Charlaine Harris

Book Description

Publication Date: May 1, 2012 | Series: Sookie Stackhouse (Book 12)
It’s vampire politics as usual around the town of Bon Temps, but never before have they hit so close to Sookie’s heart…
Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she’d rather not know. And now that she’s an adult, she also realizes that some things she knows about, she’d rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one.
There’s a thing or two she’d like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town. It’s the worst possible time for a human body to show up in Eric’s front yard—especially the body of the woman whose blood he just drank.
Now, it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who’s set out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down.
Review –
I have read every book in the Sookie Stackhouse Series and some have fallen flat for me but not this one.
I found it fast paced and hard to put down.  There was not as much action and violence as in some of the others (and sometimes  even violence, if overdone, becomes boring) but he characters dominated the storyline.  Though I am not a fan of the faerie side of Sookie, I can see how the author has tied things together a bit more in this book and I’m glad because I would like to see more of Bill(who does appear more in this installment) and less of Eric(Yes, I’m Team Bill) and more about Tara and her new family and how that will completely change the dynamic of her character.
I can’t wait til the next book.
