And development of competence. There was no real story here.
Pam – we got to see a softer side to Pam with her love interest and I enjoyed that. It served absolutely no purpose, why even bother? More time at Merlotte’s would have been fine. Dear Sookie, You know you are one of my oldest friends, right?
I understand Sstackhouse is one of the more ordinary characters – to an extent- in a world that has become abundant in supernaturals, but I was desperately wishing for more action on numerous occassions.
The Harper Connelly books were written concurrently with the Sookie novels. Alcide shows up for one scene,Bill is there sometimes. May 11, Lighthearted rated it did not like it Shelves: Why was that “package” hidden in the attic? And certainly, there is no author’s love. And there are major developments in the blood-bond issue between Eric reeckoning Sookie.
Oh, did I mention that Sandra Pelt is out and has no bearing on the larger part of the story, which is The implication being Eric skokie who Niall was in connection to Sookie.
Fear not, I also have nice things to say, I just wish they outweighed the bad. Poof, like that, she does it. More than that, I love their bit of dialog afterward.
Why was this story so convoluted? I get being upset, remorseful, even a little horrified, but I do not understand surprise at this point!!! Does she really love any of them, or does she just enjoy the sex?
