Dead As A Doornail by Charlaine Harris

Year Published: 2005

My Rating: 4 stars

320 pages

Weight: 4 ounces = 0.25 lb.

This is the 5th book in the Sookie Stackhouse series (Southern Vampires).

It's the full moon and Jason joins the shifters in Hotshot, then the shootings start!!

A girl shifter is shot dead, then Calvin Norris, the Sam! So it seems that a serial killer is on the loose and looking for shifters in specific.
The shifters in Hotshot suspect Jason, and Sookie is afraid for his life..

Now Merlotte's has no bouncer with Sam being injured so he asks Sookie to ask for Eric's help as a favor, so Eric sends them a vampire bouncer/bartender.

Then Sookie's life becomes endangered and trouble seems to look for her in every corner, as usual!

The were's have an important ceromony that Sookie is asked to attend and is dragged in to were politics unintentionally!
Then she meets a new kind of supe that intrigues her like no other!

A lot of action and events take place in this book, although it seems that every supe that lays eyes on Sookie goes nuts over her, she gets kissed by most of them too!

I mostly liked this book like I liked the whole series, Sookie has become really familiar to me, and she kinda grew on me.. I got addicted.. I already started book 6.. although this is not my favorite book of the series it has it's good moments.. what I didn't like was Quinn.. I mean the way he looks (I mean the way he is described), over 6 feet tall, bare chested bald guy.. come on I can't shake the vision of a genie or Mr. Clean from my head.. he just needs a gold earring!! YUCK!

I don't know why he shaves everyday and sometimes twice a day!! Does that mean he is not really bald just shaving his head!! I hope so.. I mean this is fiction why not make guys perfect :)

This is what ended me giving the book 4 stars instead of 5..

The 6th books starts with Quinn.. God help me!

A quote I liked by Eric.. it just made me laugh..
"Sookie, you have to understand that for hundreds, thousands, of years we have considered ourselves better than humans, separate from humans.” He thought for a second. “Very much in the same relationship to humans as humans have to, say, cows. Edible like cows, but cute, too.”

These are my reviews for the books I read from this series in order:
1. Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris
2. Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris
3. Club Dead by Charlaine Harris
4. Dead To The World By Charlaine Harris

DeSeRtRoSe: Oh I definitely have a hewgah crush on Sam. He is a sweetie who pines quietly for Sookie. I can empathize.
