Dead Reckoning - Charlaine Harris

Dead Reckoning is the latest in the Sookie Stackhouse/TrueBlood series.  I love this series, and I LOVE the show on HBO.  I mean, talk about hotness. 
That being said, Reckoning was not my favorite in the series.  It felt like one of those in-between books for me - the kind that asks a lot of questions, and resolves one or two but leaves you wondering what the cuss is going on by the end of the book...and then you have to wait another year for the next book.  In my opinion, this is different than a cliff hanger - a cliff hanger is one big moment at the end of the book that leave you going "What the cuss just happened?!?"  This kind of book just leaves you feeling frustrated because you have this list of questions, and only one or two questions from the last book got answered in this one. 
Also, this book made me wish more than ever that Sookie would get back together with Bill - and I realize this makes no sense to those of you who haven't read the series, but this is the 10th book people. I can't summarize quickly.  For those of you that have read it, I want Sookie to go back with Bill.  Yes, I know he messed up, but he truly loves Sookie and is devoted to her.  Eric has too, too much going on - you find out in this book that he has even more going on then we knew about. 
If you haven't read any of the TB series before, the books have some graphic violence (vampires, people!) and some graphic sexual content (again, vampires!).
