Dead to the world - Charlaine Harris

Dead to the world is the fourth novel in the Sookie Stackhouse series. In this book Sookie and Bill have parted ways as he has to go to Peru on a business trip. Driving home from Merlotte’s one night, Sookie finds a confused Eric by the side of the road and apparently he has forgotten who he is. She takes him home to find out that he has been cursed by a witch named Hallow who wanted to take over Shreveport and make Eric her own.

Sookie must hide Eric so the witches can’t find him and hurt him even further. But where will this lead? In the mean time, Jason has gone missing and no one seems to know what has happened to him. With her brother missing and a vampire with amnesia living in her house, a very sexy vampire at that, how will Sookie cope?
It’s not everyday that you come across a naked man on the side of the road. That’s why cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse doesn’t just drive on by. Turns out the poor thing hasn’t a clue who he is, but Sookie does. it’s Eric the vampire – but now he’s a kinder, gentler Eric. And a scared Eric, because whoever took his memory now wants his life. Sookie’s investigation into who and why leads straight into a dangerous battle among witches, vampires and werewolves. But a greater danger could be to Sookie’s heart – because this version of Eric is very difficult to resist…
I liked the developments in this Sookie book. I have never really warmed to Bill so I was glad he wasn’t featured a whole lot in this book. Eric on the other hand, although normally a bit of a brute, sounds divine so I was quite glad he played such a prominent role in the story. The inclusion of witches in the novel (and a lone fairy) was really refreshing and it makes me wonder what other supernatural creatures and myths Charlaine Harris is going to explore next. This book was much needed to move Sookie’s story along and I am looking forward to seeing what happens next!

Rating 3.5/5
