Team Quinn, Anyone?

OK, I think that I have now gotten the need to immerse myself in the world of Bon Temps, Louisiana out of my system for the time being.  You may remember I reviewed Dead as a Doornail by Charlaine Harris earlier this week.  At the time I was asking Ms. Harris to stop it with the new suitors for Sookie, already!  Seriously, how many men should one telepathic barmaid have to fend off?  Come to think of it, I suppose that barmaids of all stripes probably fend off more than their fair share of men, but I digress...

Well, now that I've read Definitely Dead, book #6 in the Sookie Stackhouse series, I think that Charlaine has finally created the perfect man for Sookie.  As the novel opens, Sookie is called to New Orleans by the Queen of Louisiana.  While there, she decides to finally clean out her cousin Hadley's apartment.  Hadley, formerly human, finally vampire, lover to the Queen in both incarnations, was rendered definitely dead some months back by another vampire.  Even though she and Hadley had not been particularly close in recent years, Hadley had left everything she owned to Sookie.  Like most things in Harris' universe, nothing was really as it seemed.  New Orleans, being the center of supernatural culture in the southest, provided plenty of danger and drama for small-town Sookie.

As usual, the story is fun and action-packed, and Sookie as narrator is funny and engaging.  What made this one for me was her newest love interest, Quinn.  I mean, really, what could be sexier than a weretiger?  Strong, sleek, dangerously exciting, sexy...not to mention kind, gentlemanly, and supportive without being overwhelming.  I have no idea what becomes of this "relationship"  in the next couple of books, but I can't wait to find out!

  4. Nope, still Team Eric, here. But, I'm ahead of you in the series. I liked Quinn a lot when I first read this one!
