Want some more “Deadlocked” – of course you do, and the lovely people at Gollancz Blog are happy to oblige. After posting Chapter One for our reading pleasure a little while ago, they have now given book-hungry Sookie Stackhouse fans the whole of Chapter Two (including and continuing on from the extract posted on Charlaine Harris’s own site).
WARNING - Spoilers ahead
Eric and Sookie lovers will note that Sookie professes her LOVE for the viking, not once, but twice, in this chapter alone.
We already knew of her rebuff to Dermot’s Sleeping invitation:
”Two, I love Eric and I should only bunk down with him”.
And now later in the chapter, Sookie is asked why she is dating a vampire:
“That why you go with the vamp? To scare off everyone else?”
“I love him,” I said steadily. “That’s why I go with him.” I didn’t point out that human guys were simply impossible for me. You can imagine reading your date’s mind every minute. No, it really wouldn’t be any fun, would it?
“No need to get all defensive;’ India said.
I thought I’d been matter-of-fact. “He’s fun,” I said mildly, “and he treats me nice.”
Here at Eric & Sookie Headquarters we can hardly wait any longer for this book now, the craziness may shortly start to creep in.
Only 21 days to go until Sookie lets everyone know how much she loves Eric again!
