Dead to the World (Southern Vampire Mysteries, Book 4)
Rating: 4 out of 5
Summary: Sookie is still trying to get over the falling out she had with Bill after she found out Bill had left her for Lorena, his vampire maker and lover. After working at the bar on New Year's, Sookie drives home to see a man running down the road, half naked and obviously running scared. She pulls over, shocked to find that the man running for his life is no other than Eric, vampire bar owner and leader of the vampire's in section five. The problem is, Eric doesn't know who Sookie is and he doesn't know himself either. She takes him home, cleans him up and finds out that Eric has had a run in with witches. Witches that want to take over Vampire bar's and somehow, they've cursed Eric. Sookie vow's to watch him when she discovers the witches have a ransom out for him. The problem is, she is living with a memory lacking Eric, one that's different somehow. And now, Sookie finds herself falling for him while trying to Vampire's, Were's and Wiccan's to save Eric.
My thoughts: I really feel as if this series just keeps getting better and better. I'm starting to like Eric's character a bit more even if in this book, most of the time, Eric wasn't truly Eric. I think he's starting to grow on me however, especially seeing as how he wants to take care of Sookie even if Sookie protests. I think Eric is a good guy..er Vampire and it's nice to see Sookie expanding her interests instead of focusing on just Bill.
Also, Bubba makes another appearance in this book even though it's closer to the end. I was highly amused to find Bubba riding in the back of Sookie's car humming something that sounded like "Love me Tender". Of course, he's till loyal to a fault and would do anything to keep Sookie safe, not to mention, protect those that truly need it.
Also, we get to see another side of Sookie's brother Jason and I'm glad his fate didn't turn out worse than it did. Also, with the climate of this book, I definitely see things turning out a lot worse for Sookie and the other supernatural beings that she meets with as people are starting to catch on that things aren't quite right in the town of Bon Temps.
