Booktopia Presents: Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris

Booktopia Book’s Carolyn Baum interviewed Charlaine Harris on her penultimate book, “Deadlocked” in this video interview.

In this interview, Charlaine talked about learning karate and weight-lifting – as well as the burning Eric and Sookie lovin’ question: what kind of love do you need to feel in order to use the Cluviel Dor?

Watch the video below!

Notice how Charlaine mentions that there are more than one ways to “love”? We’re pretty sure Sookie and Sam fall under the “friend” category, so you shouldn’t worry about Sookie using it on him in the book.

What are your thoughts? Please share ’em below!

  1. After watching the video I really didn’t feel I got any more out of it than previous interviews that CH has done. Maybe I can’t read between the lines as well as others, but color me not impressed. Sorry…

    • That’s fine. :) We just thought we’d share it with you to see what you thought. If you still feel the same way as before, then that’s your opinion and everyone is entitled to having one. :)

      What I got from it was that there are many different types of love. And that Sookie loves Sam, but not in the same way as she loves Eric. So, I take it to mean that just because she decided to use it on Sam instead, is nothing to worry about. :)

  2. I see it as Sookie just having love for her best friend, of course she was going to save him if she knew that she could. It doesn’t really mean anything beyond that, but Eric probably won’t see it that way at first.

  3. As I understand it, the C.D. can only be used once. While I agree there are different types of love and Sam falls under philial love, doesn’t using the C.D to save Sam give Sookie & Eric one less way to defeat/outsmart Freyda? It doesn’t seem that E & S have a lot of choices as it is.

    That being said, I fully understand why S made this decision, but I think E partially walked away because he saw the opportunities to extricate himself from Ocella’s agreement fading fast. I’m sure he was mad, too, initially, at least, because he saw S choosing Sam over him. Hopefully, when E thinks about it, and S explains herself, he’ll begrudgingly accept her reasoning, and together, they’ll come up with a solution.

    • Yeah, you can only use it once, but I’m one who thinks Eric was being selfish by wanting Sookie to use it to get him out of Ocella’s agreement when he should be finding his own way. That’s a lot of pressure to put on her, so now they’re going to have to come up with another solution if they want to be together. Unfortunately, I don’t see a lot of hope for them. I just pray for an ending that won’t be an utter disappointment.

  4. It might be selfish of him, but we don’t know how hard he’s tried, how many avenues he’s explored, or how many people he’s tried to call in favors from. Presumably, he hasn’t just been sitting on his a$s waiting for good fortune to slap him in the face.

    Because Sookie is so tentative and ambivalent about their relationship, maybe Eric was thinking that if she really, truly wanted him and Sookie was sure she’d stay with Eric, she would use the C.D. for their happiness. Maybe he sees her using it on someone else as as act of betrayal and the final indicator she’s not in it for the long haul.

    I’m playing Devil’s Advocate here. I hope, too, the last book isn’t a dissapoinment, but short of killing Freyda, I don’t see a way out of the marriage.

    Just a question I’m curious about. If you could have the love of your life for 364 days a year, but knew on the 365th he’d be having sex with someone else for the next 100 years, would you take this arrangment, or say ‘don’t let the door hit you on your way out?’

    • First of all…I really hope they kill Freyda. I hope Sookie does it herself to save her relationship with Eric. I think that will prove to Eric and everyone else that Sookie is choosing Eric once and for all. Plus, I think Sookie knows that it’s a reasonable solution to having her HEA. It’s not the first time she’s had to do something like that.

      Secondly, that’s a very good question! :) But if I were Sookie and knowing what I know about Eric and what I feel for him, and what he’s done for me in the past…not to mention, knowing how much he loves me – faults and all and accepts me for who I really am…I would probably consider it. I mean, I know he doesn’t really “love” Freyda. He’s being forced into doing something he doesn’t want to do, with no easy way to get out of it without risking both of their lives. And I think she’s matured and become stronger as the series has past. She has endured a lot and has gotten through it alright.

      I hope she doesn’t make that decision though…because I would much rather she kill Freyda and put them out of that kind of misery.

  5. I would strongly consider the 364 days as well, because of all the reasons you cited. You summed up how I feel about it all very nicely. I hope Sookie’s somewhere sharpening her stake. :)
