I found the conclusion to the Sookie Stackhouse stories quite satisfying. I know some readers have complained because they were hoping for a different outcome, but what I liked most about Dead Ever After was it made sense. It was true to the character, true to the setting, true to the storyarc that's been building in the novels. Sookie always brought a sense of down home authenticity to her adventures, and was always a small-town girl whose dreams and life were fairly simple and wholesome. This final adventure, with all its attendant blood, gore and magic, reminds us of who Sookie is and why we loved her.
