Leave us with something, please, even if we end up hating Eric, at least we'll feel something for him, other than tired.

I'll see her journey through to the end because after all the shit she's had to endure I want to see her happy. Deadlocked begins with Sookie at Hooligans watching Claude strip. As much as I love the series the larger story does not seem to be leading anywhere. The plot was dull and predictable and it also reminded me of plots from the previous books. Such a shame there is only 1 book to go! The Sookie Stackhouse series is dying a slow and painful death.

The only positive thing I can say about the plot is that it looks like the fairies may be gone for good this time so I won't have to read about them too much in the next book, although I won't be surprised if they make an appearance. Many of Sook's suitors were eliminated as prospects. That is not why I read them. To me, it doesn't make sense. But something strange is going on.

Thru the 1st half of the series, I hated that idea, but now I think that would probably be the best conclusion to the series. That is not why I read them.
