After loosing some interest in this series I was happy to find I enjoyed this book. The previous book, club dead, had way too much violence against Sookie for my taste. There was something about it that disturbed me and I seriously considered dropping the series. After some encouragement from a friend I picked up Dead to the World. I was happy that this book finally acknowledged how much she was being hurt and then gave us ~300 pages with minimal injury. I liked the romance with Eric and felt sad for Sookie when he got his memory back, although it was expected. I am curious to see if a serious romance starts with Alcide now that Debbie is dead. I already have the next book on hold at the library.
