Pros:* better than the last one* Quinn makes an appearance* Alcide's appearance makes sense this timeCons:* unsatisfying ending* more Eric/Sookie relationship drama* I get it, Sookie is a country bumpkin. The first 3/4 of this felt like the old SVM that I loved. The vampire scenes are a short and plot driven, there are no random character appearances. But at some point, this series has just become like a long running telenovela. How many people/creatures has Sookie killed? What new distraction will come between her and Eric? What will Pam say next?Honestly, I miss when there was one central threat each novel.
