Even though the last few books were not up to par-- they felt like filler, in my opinion-- I had to read Dead Ever After because I've invested so much time in this series and the characters. I wanted to see them to the end. And to be honest, I was holding onto hope that Ms. Charlaine Harris was not going to disappoint.
Well, that's exactly how I feel now after finishing the last book in the Southern Vampire Mysteries. I don't know what else to say except that on one hand I'm glad this series is finally done. The quality has been declining for some time now and it needed to be put out of its misery. But on the other, it's just such a let down with how the series has ended.
