On the eve of the launch of the fifth season of the HBO series, True Blood, Charlaine Harris announces that her next Sookie Stackhouse book, Dead Ever After, coming next May, will be the last in the series. Appropriately, it’s the 13th installment. The twelfth book in the series, Deadlocked (Penguin/Ace) came out last week.
Earlier this year, Alan Ball, creator of the tv series, announced that he will not return for a sixth season of True Blood. A replacement has not yet been named.
The tie-in to the new season, Dead as a Doornail (Penguin/Ace) releases next week. The trailer is below.
