Good Morning Everyone,
We knew this day was coming, but now that it is just a few hours away… it will be a bittersweet day. What I am talking of is the last book in the Southern Vampire Mysteries a.k.a. the Sookie Stackhouse series.
This series, no matter if you had issues with it or not, was always something that took us out our day-to-day for a couple of weeks in May. It allowed us to live vicariously through this young southern barmaid who had an extraordinary ability that made her very attractive to vampires, werewolves, and everything else that went bump in the night.
In her triumphs and pitfalls in love, we cheered her on as she loved and lost.
Through all the ups and downs of being a telepath and being embroiled in the local shenanigans of the supernatural population in Louisiana, we kept hope alive that one day she would be done with this part of her life and on to a life that she deserves.
And here we are, at the end of our tether to this universe. Will we all be happy with the end of this series? Probably not.
This podcast and site has always been pro-Sookie from the get-go. Yes, we may have fallen in and out of love with certain characters, but we always wanted Sookie to have a Happily Ever After. I think that is the one thing we, Sookie fans, and Charlaine have always looked eye to eye on.
Charlaine Harris stated the following regarding the coda: “It will be a slim book containing what happens AFTER “DEA” to many of the characters I’ve created over the years. And Lisa is drawing a Sookie alphabet for the book. There are several other features under consideration for this volume, which is intended as a stocking stuffer.”
Maybe, we’ll finally learn what happened to Barry the Bellboy.
