I like to read anything that tells a good story, duh ;) Genre doesn't really matter much but I tend to read dark fiction and fantasy the most. I skip chick lit and romance novels with a few exceptions for the extraordinary.
My ratings system:
5 stars - ADORED; plan to read over and over and over.
4 stars - ENJOYED; will likely read once or twice more.
3 stars - LIKED; may or may not read again ... someday.
2 stars - MEH; no plans to read again.
1 stars - I didn't enjoy the story and was lucky to finish.
0 stars - I couldn't or wouldn't finish for reasons that may or may not be listed in the review box.
Rating: 3.5 of 5
I enjoyed Deadlocked more than Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse #11). There was a marked change of pace for Sookie and way more "navel gazing" than I remember in any of the previous books. However that might bore action-hungry readers of the series. Especially if those readers are looking for hot, naughty action. Something else that may annoy readers was the obvious rush to tie everything up for side characters and subplots. It felt a tad bit rushed in that respect.
Personally, I'm bummed with where I anticipate Harris is taking Sookie's relationships. The final book is due out May 2013 and, while I'm excited to read it, I'm also dreading where Sookie will end up and with whom.
