I Threw It On The Ground: My non review of Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris
Series: Sookie Stackhouse #13 Finale
Genre: Paranormal, Fantasy, Vampires
Publication Date: May 7, 2013
There are secrets in the town of Bon Temps, ones that threaten those closest to Sookie—and could destroy her heart...
Sookie Stackhouse finds it easy to turn down the request of former barmaid Arlene when she wants her job back at Merlotte’s. After all, Arlene tried to have Sookie killed. But her relationship with Eric Northman is not so clearcut. He and his vampires are keeping their distance…and a cold silence. And when Sookie learns the reason why, she is devastated.
Then a shocking murder rocks Bon Temps, and Sookie is arrested for the crime.
But the evidence against Sookie is weak, and she makes bail. Investigating the killing, she’ll learn that what passes for truth in Bon Temps is only a convenient lie. What passes for justice is more spilled blood. And what passes for love is never enough..
Non-Review*Disclaimer This isn't really a review since I didn't actually read the book in its entirety. However, I still wanted to rage my feelings about the end of The Southern Vampire Mysteries series by Charlaine Harris. This will be spoiler free but if your a fan I'm sure you can guess why I'm left raging. Anywho onwards to my non review.
I'm going to be completely honest, I didn't want to spend money on this book since I had a feeling the series would end horribly. Instead I spent 20 minutes grazing through it at the store. The fan girl in me just needed to have some sort of confirmation of how it ended.
Thank goodness I was in public because this is how I felt when I saw how things ended up.....
If I could somehow get this gif to show Dead Ever After being thrown on the ground I would do it.
Seriously though wtf Charlaine Harris. Please do the world a favor and never write another series, OK? Would it really have been awful ending the series as the fans wanted? Actually No, as the series demanded! Instead with little time to come to grip with the about face the characters take
After the last book when things started to go downhill I hadn't yet decided whether the Author was angry at the fans for liking the show better or if it was simple boredom with her characters. I'm convinced now it's a mixture of both. Needless to say this fan ( and I'm using that term lightly atm) was soo not impressed.
Still not quite understanding the anger? Let's put it this way then, out of pure unadulterated rage I almost feel like setting my entire series on fire. Sure I've already spent the money but at least I'll have some satisfaction.
Which is more than I can say about the conclusion to this series.
You don't have to take my word for it though (sad face) but in case you do, I highly recommend you borrow Dead Ever After
So here's a final piece of advice, Make sure to remove all breakable items from within arms reach. You will have a strong desire to throw them. Reader be warned!!
