UF Review: Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris

Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse, #12)Deadlocked 
by Charlaine Harris
(Sookie Stackhouse #12) 
Hardcover, 327 pages
Published May 1st 2012 by Ace Hardcover 

With Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), in town, it’s the worst possible time for a body to show up in Eric Northman’s front yard—especially the body of a woman whose blood he just drank. Now, it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who’s out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down.


This review will be VERY short like my attention for the book. I only read about 65 pages and I just decided that I didn't care enough to continue. Sad I know. I've every all the other books in the series but after the last two books I was ready to give up on the series. But since there was only two (now one) books left in the series I thought I would read Deadlocked but I knew better than to purchase it like all the others. I checked it out from the library and boy am I glad I didn't spend money on it.

After seeing some positive reviews about how Deadlocked was better than the last book I started it with hopes that Sookie could grab my attention again. WRONG.

My book buddy read it and emailed me when she finished saying she was not impressed with it. At. All.

I will ask my blogging friends that finished the book to please give me the spoilers (by email of course). Just give me the highlights (if there is any).

Deadlocked is available at:

My copy came from the library.

Since I have been a fan of the series I want to leave you with these positive reviews:

Hot Listens (audio book review)


  1. I actually bought this book because even though I was not impressed with the last 2 books I'm still a loyal fan of the series (especially the earlier stuff). I had hoped it was better than the last because other reviewers had said it was but I didn't see it at all. I'll probably still read the next book just because it is the final one.

    1. Yeah, I'm not bothering with the last one. I'll just ask someone that reads it to tell me how it ends. Sad, I know but I have TONS of other books to read.

    2. I got my copy from the library over the weekend and my buddy librarian told me it was a total flop too. It took her more than a week to finish the book and ended up just skimming it. TRAGIC!

      Here's Cimmaron's review:


  2. Sorry this didn't work for you, but I would have done the same thing if I didn't hold my attention from the beginning.
    Thanks for the link :)

  3. I can understand, for me it was like a nice novella but nothing really happen so I was a little disappointed. It's nice but far less interesting than the other books.
