Dead as a Doornail by Charlaine Harris is the fifth book in her best-selling series The Southern Vampire Mysteries.
This time the story revolves around multiple shootings and a fierce competition among the local Were's to become the next packleader.
Dead as a Doornail is yet another dissapointing volume by Charlaine Harris who is quickly becomming one of my least favorite authors. Her style of writing is very simple and it doesn't seem to show any signs of improvement as the series progresses. The plot was also slow-paced and tedious to get through. Like the previous books in the series Dead as a Doornail had plenty of potential to be full of action but this is barely delivered and the tiny bit of action that we do get to see is nothing compared to the trashy nonsense which seems to take up a large portion of this silly series. In fact the only real mystery in this overly hyped-up series is trying to figure out who will be the next supe to get into Sookies pants and this is usually very predictable. I would not recommend this book/series.
