Final thoughts:While much of the book felt like a recap, I needed it. I read book #11 in 2011, so some of what others did not like was quite helpful to me. Especially since the characters on the show, True Blood, vary so much from those in the books. I'm going to start Dead Ever After straight away and say farewell to Sookie and the Bon Temps clan.Thoughts on the cover: Where's Sook's other leg? LOL!
