I read all the books in this series and i can say with a light heart that this is my favorite. Of course Eric is the sole reason for it. How to describe, he was like a grown child so simple in thinking and has so much desire to take care of Sookie, in more way than one. She is always alone, taking care of or dealing with something or trying to help someone. I just want someone special for her.
The end is not satisfactory for me, still this remains a favori of mine. But the last scene with Eric was plesant.
By the way i've never liked Bill or Alcide, they can go hell i would not mind.
