Rated 1 out of 5 by from Last one for me I continued to read this series because I enjoyed the first book and wanted to see what would happen to Sookie and the other characters. After a few books though I was skimming a lot and the plots just started to become boring and over-dramatized. This was the last Sookie novel I read and I just did not like it at all, the series had declined for me completely by this point and I had no intention of reading more. The first few books were good for romantic escapism though so I'm glad I read them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best In The Series So Far! All the books have been good, but I liked this one the best so far. It was really exciting, and Quinn is ten kinds of terrific. Great story and a really exciting end!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from another great Sookie read Sookie Stackhouse, a small town barmaid, is going to accompany Vampire Queen of Louisiana Sophie-Anne Leclerq to the vampire convention near Chicago. Leclerq is accused of killing her husband, the Vampire King of Arkansas and Sookie will testify on her behalf. Also Sookie's telepathic abilities will be put to use by Leclerq in other business dealings. Sookie meets up with another telepathic, Barry the Bellhop once again and this time they use their powers together to save some of the vamps from the bombing of the convention hotel. In this installment, Sookie is given no choice but to suck up some more of Eric's blood creating an even tighter bond between the two. Quinn her current weretiger boyfriend is of course upset but he seems to be mostly working in this book. I find these books entertaining and addictive. SPOILER: I do enjoy these reads but I just do not understand Sookie at times. She and Barry help to find survivors in the ruins by using their telepathy. Then they decide to run away in order that the government will not use them. I can sort of understand this but also not. In these types of situations why not? First, they could control these as they just won't give help in other situations. Sookie is always worried about money, wouldn't this help her big time? Also as a humanitarian effort how could one turn one's back?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love Sookie Great Series! Although I can't say i like Sookie so much, she kind of seems self-centered. There is just something about how. However, I love her adventures!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Might be my favourite Sookie book, so far Sookie has been hired by the Queen of Louisiana, Sophie-Anne, to come with her to a vampire conference. Sookie’s job is to read the minds of the humans, mostly humans working for other vampires. Sophie-Anne will be on trial, and Sookie can also vouch in her defense (though Sookie was already hired before there was a need for a trial). This might have been my favourite Sookie book so far. I read them so spread out, that I can’t say for sure, but I am rating it the highest of all of them. I enjoyed the little “love” triangle going on in this one, and I liked Sookie’s connection and interactions with Barry, another human with the same telepathic powers as Sookie.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ◄Back to lottsa Vampire action.. soo good ► This was a greatly satisfying read all around. Everything you love about the Sookie Stackhouse series continues and snowball's into something even bigger in "All together dead." **☼ Spoilers ahead ☼** We follow Sookie the the vampire Summit this time. Why? She was the only witness to the murder of the King of Arkansas. Plus, she has her duty to the Queen of louisiana as telepath. During the summit Sookie unravels many different villains including the usual fellowship of the sun. There's not much highlight on the love life.. tid bits here and there with Eric and Quinn. I was a lil shocked that Sookie didn't appear to care that much about saving Bill. At the end she is always telling herself.. stay away from vampires.. yea dream on pretty blonde girl. There is much more to be figured out there. i dont think she will be bending over backward for the queen anymore. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the strongest Sookie books to date Sookie Stackhouse - telepathic barmaid - has had a rough string of months, not the least of which is due to learning the truth of the situation surrounding her first lover, the vampire Bill. But now Sookie has a new potential beau, the weretiger Quinn, and she has a chance at some real excitement. She's leaving her state, and heading to the important Vampire Summit as a servant of the Queen of Louisiana. But the Queen has lost so much to Hurricane Katrina, and Sookie quickly finds herself buried deep in Vampire politics, trying to read the minds of all involved to get herself out of another snarl of tangled lies. Sookie delights as a character, her voice is strong, and human, and her "disability" of telepathy is always handled well. As always, Harris crafts a great array of surrounding cast for Sookie to interact with, and the real joy is in the continuing arcs that Harris balances against the specific plots of individual books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sookie a great heroine ****Contains Spoilers**** In this book the Weres and Shifters take a back seat to the Vampires. Pretty glad I was getting tired of the Weres. Sookie goes to the long awaited vampire summit. She was supposed to go with Eric, but he was outranked in the last book. The Queen of Louisiana has lost almost everything after Hurricane Katrina. Sookie is also the only witness to the death of the King of Arkansas where the Queen is being accused of killing her husband. Sookie soon meets up with Barry the Bellboy. He is now working for Stan and has grown and matured. His telepathic skills have also greatly improved. Sookie finds comfort with him because they share the same curse/gift. Vamps are being killed in the hotel and Sookie and Barry find it odd that the humans are avoiding them. Together they try to solve the murders. Bill, what can I say? I’m pretty sick of Bill. In this book he professes his love to Sookie. He is trying to win her back and get forgiveness. We do find that Sookie softens to him but doesn’t forgive him. Charlaine when will you just kill Bill? Quinn, Sookie’s new love interest doesn’t take a front seat in the novel but we do get some of his background story. Eric who is always there fore Sookie if he likes it or not find he is having trouble with his feelings for Sookie. He is struggling to comprehend them. When Sookie is holding a bomb, Eric tries to have her give it to him. We feel his desperation because he doesn’t want Sookie to be killed. I feel their story is moving nicely. Eric and Sookie have another blood exchange which enhances their previous blood bond and they are emotionally pulled together. The hotel gets bombed during the day and Sookie with help of Barry try to save the humans and Vamps. I find it interesting the panic and emotions Sookie goes through trying to save Eric and Pam. I love how Sookie goes to save Eric above anyone else. She doesn’t even care about Bill. I do believe her heart is with Eric but she doesn’t seem to realize herself. Sookie and Barry show off their telepathic abilities to save the wounded but become scared that their identities will be discovered and be used by the police/government for their gifts. In this 7th book, we find Sookie more of a heroine. Her character grows and becomes more self assured. She is not finding her gift as a curse but uses it and grows as a person because of it. This book was fantastic. A lot of action and I was glad Mrs. Harris went back into the world of the vamps and less with the Weres and Shifters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great Book!! What I love about this series, is that Charlaine Harris is always introducing new and quirky characters. This book didn't disappoint. This book continues with Sookie going to the vampire summit and of course reader is in for a great ride. Loads of action, plot twists and don't forget the men in Sookie's life - Quinn who's new (was great finding out alittle more about him), Eric and Bill. What more could you ask for in a great book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! *****SPOILERS***** In this installment of the Sookie Stackhouse novels, Sookie finds herself at a vampire summit with the vampire Queen of Louisiana. Let's just say that things don't go as planned. Not only is her ex-lover Bill there, but she's stuck dealing with the ever difficult and delicious Eric and her current beau Quinn. As with all Sookie books, disaster strikes and the reader is on the edge of their seat! Hurricane Katrina was used as part of the plot in this novel, which I liked. It felt a bit like a respectful tribute to those who lost their lives and their home in the tragedy. A lot of depth was added to the story by the inclusion of an actual real life event. As an admirer of Eric, I was glad when the book started off with a scene including him. For me, that just started the story out on the right foot. The plot of the novel took Sookie and some of the other characters up north to Illinois, which I thought was a nice change of scenery. Many smaller characters return, specifically vampire leaders and their entourage from their kingdoms, and some new ones are introduced. I appreciated the closer look at vampire politics and the vampire hierarchy that All Together Dead presented. The plot in this novel was spontaneous feeling and fun! The unexpected and tragic twist that the plot took allowed Harris to show us a new side to many of her characters. I relished the new developments between Sookie and Eric because the reader can really sense the tension and abstruse emotions between the two. I also enjoyed learning more about Quinn as he was quite mysterious with his unknown past in the previous books. The ending of All Together Dead left me with a lot of curiosity about what’s next for the characters because it concluded without answering many of the questions I’d been forming about Sookie’s relationships and about some secondary characters. I can honestly say that I’m itching to read the next book already! I’d highly recommend this book to anyone following the series, and I’d recommend the series to anyone who enjoys urban fantasy, vampires, and great genre fiction. Charlaine Harris is a master at creating mystery, suspense, tension, humor, and some spicy scenes! This book left me distracted and tried in my daily life, which is a sign that I couldn’t put it down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The series keeps getting better and better I loved this book as I love all of the series. This book explores Sookies life, her relationships, her friendships in a much deeper level. I don't know how she does it, but Charlaine Harris hit it right on the money this time as well. Bravo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Read With the charm of character both old and new, All Together Dead easily ensnares you into a world full of action, romance and entertainement. This is a book you won't want to miss, and will leave you craving more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Took the storyline to the next level! If you liked where the storyline was going in the previous book your going to love this one! At the end of the previous book Sookie was "requested" to go to a vamp summit with the vamp Queen of her area. This is totally covered in this book, and with loads of excitement, and mysteries! You will feel satisfied with where the book ends, but if your anything like me you will HAVE to start the next one right away!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Oh So Spicey! My first thought for the novel overall is that it might be a tad bit considered filler. It was really just a sort post-Bill/Eric, pre-Eric/Quinn. With that being said, if you're a fan of the series or characters and you've read this far, this won't pose a problem whatsoever. What I did adore about the story was Harris' continuation of her world of vampires. It's a great look at the traditions and ceremonies that the undead have, sort of like any race or culture might. It was lots of fun reading that stuff. As far as character progression goes, Sookie seems to have a knack for irresistible threesomes! Quinn is entirely too hot in this novel and it's nice to see the poor mind-read finally get to be with someone who doesn't seem to have an ulterior motive. The tension with Eric continues though a new kink in their relationship is introduced in this story that could spice things up quite a bit. It'll be fun to see where Harris takes all this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent as always - Sookie is GREAT. Can't wait to see what comes next! Hurry up, Charlaine! Quit wasting time on those other series and write more Sookie, our favourite Southern, vampire-lovin' waitress!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go Sookie go! This wonderfull series is still amazing me, as per usual Charlaine Harris takes us in the ups & down of the supernatural world, if you like Sookie, you'll love this one, of course this is the book about the vampire summit, and the all those sneaky vampires are as usual up to no good, Eric is around the help of course, and Quinn as well. A story that has a real bank to it, a fun and powerful read.
