Sookie Stackhouse has one last adventure in store.

Life has taken her from a waitress in Merlotte’s Bar, Bon Temps, to part owner; from social outcast to the heart of her community; from a vampire’s girlfriend to the wife of one of the most powerful vampires in the state. She has survived earthquakes, revolutions and attempts on her life. Sookie has endured betrayal, heartbreak and grief . . . and she has emerged a little stronger, and little wiser, every time.

But with life comes new trials . . .

The question is, in the end: who will love, who will live, and who will be dead ever after?
(Goodreads Synopsis)

I need to be careful in this review of Dead Ever After not to give too much away. Suffice to say, while I wasn't happy with the ending in terms of Sookie's love life, I did feel this book was a fitting conclusion to what has been a fun and enjoyable series.

The storyline of this one was excellent after the slight downturn in excitement of the last few books. It kept me wanting more and eager to turn the page to see what would happen next. I can see why Harris plans to write a short 'where are they now' follow up, though, as many characters are still a little in limbo at the end of this book and it would be nice to find out what happens to them all.

Finally, thank you Charlaine for the wonderful characters and great times - it has been a fantastic journey.
