A few weeks ago, Charlaine Harris announced that the 13th book in the Sookie Stackhouse series will be the last. The good news for fans is that True Blood is still around and the twelfth book, Deadlocked, was just released in May. The bad news is that we have to try to find another series filled with humor, romance, mystery, and lots of mythical creatures.
More fun at work! I especially liked working on this one because while the later Sookie books were pretty "eh", I still loved the first few in the series. I'm not sure if Harris feels like she's competing with the show or what, but the last few lost a lot of the humor that I enjoyed when the series started. Now that the show has departed so significantly from the books, I'm hoping Harris can end the series properly.
