Hello! I have been looking for some time for a book-oriented Sookie Stackhouse fan community. It's a pleasure to make your virtual acquaintance.

So, I just finished Deadlocked, and I had a few new questions at the end of it that I'd like to run by you.

  • To me, it seemed to work just fine when we assumed that the fae blood in Sookie's heritage manifested itself in different ways, such as the telepathy trait that she and Hunter share and Jason's unusual attractiveness. Now, Mr. Cataliades has thrown a wrench in that, given that he says he gave Sookie her gift of telepathy, and that Barry, the other telepath we met, is Cataliades' great-great-grandson. Where does that leave Hunter, then? How did he get it?

  • Sookie did make out her will in this book. What do you think? Is there a chance that Charlaine Harris would kill off the main character? In doing so, would Sookie be transformed or become more supernatural than she is now? Would Niall cross over one more time to save her by taking her into Faery? After all, there would still be a Sookie in the world, given how Tara and J.B. named little Sara Sookie.

  • What's going to happen with that upstairs room that Dermot was constructing? Sure, it could've just been a bit of business to keep the character occupied in the books, but I have to wonder if it will have some purpose. Dermot could've left a gift behind for Sookie (it was her birthday, after all), or Hunter could have need to come and live with her, or it could serve some other purpose. It may just be forgotten about with the next book, but it sure seems like it got mentioned a fair amount for just being a room.

  • I think Amelia Broadway may still have a part to play, quite possibly with a useful magic spell. :)

Thoughts? Theories?

I had the same question about Hunter. Maybe CH forgot? There has to be a reason since I know she has people that check for universe errors and things, I just have no clue what.

I don't think Sookie will die, her making a will was long overdue considering all the constant danger she's in. I think it was just a practical and grown up thing to do.

No clue, but I thought Claude being the bad guy was a cop out.

I miss Amelia.

First, thanks so much for responding! :) I've been dying to discuss this with someone.

I would hope that CH didn't forget Hunter, seeing as how Sookie almost called him from her house in one part of the book. Hopefully, that would've made her go, "Oh, yeah, Hunter ... " and come up with something. :) Maybe that will play a part in the final book (I'm thinking this last book is going to be longer than some of the others in the Southern Vampire series)?

You're probably right about the will. I guess I'm just too attuned to the Chekhov's Gun rule, and that makes me suspicious.

I miss Amelia, too.
