I am really rather sad to announce this. Charlaine’s people have announced the release date for the 13th and final Sookie book.
Sookie has a murder investigation on her hands. A young girl has died at a vampire party – and it looks as though her lover, Eric, might be responsible. Eric swears he didn’t do it, the police don’t believe him, and even Sookie isn’t so sure. Nor is she inclined to take his word for it, not having caught him enjoying the victim’s blood minutes before she was killed. But something strange is going on.
Why had Sookie been asked to come to the fateful party a few minutes early – just to catch Eric in the act? And why had the victim spiked her blood before approaching Eric? Was it simply because she wanted to be irresistible, or was it something more sinister? Sookie will have to find out . . . but it’s the worst moment to investigate, as her Fae family are having troubles of their own and Sookie is, inevitably, drawn in. And there is one last complication. The cluviel dor her grandmother left her. It will grant her one wish, which could fulfil Sookie’s heart’s desire. The only problem is, she still doesn’t know what – or who – her heart truly desires . . .

I have to apologize to all of my readers and to Charlaine Harris. When Charlaine’s publicist sent me the book, I assumed that (like every other author I have dealt with) the earlier the review is published, the better. Well, that is what I get for assuming anything….
The wonderful peeps at Sookieverseblog posted this morning that a “1st draft synopsis” has shown up on Amazon UK’s website for Deadlocked! The unofficial synopsis that surfaced on the interwebz a few months ago (click here to read) vaguely touches on the info in this one. I am curious to see what the Amazon US one will read like.
Read on to see the new synopsis!
Ok, it’s not official and it could be completely false but the fine folks over at http://www.sookieverseblog.com are not usually known for jumping the gun on this sort of thing. The synopsis surfaced on the internet a few days ago – the same day I posted the picture of the Deadlocked cover art. Read on…..
On the ride to work this morning, I was snooping around Facebook (no, I wasn’t driving) and saw a post from Charlain Harris. It’s not much, but this is what she had to say:
“The copy-edited version of DEADLOCKED is back on my editor’s desk. Well, in her computer. Now to work on CEMETERY GIRL with Chris Golden.”
So that is where Deadlocked stands for now. I, for one, am looking forward to the Cemetery Girl. Sounds fantastic and I love Chris Golden.
