DEAD EVER AFTER: LET DOWN OR NOT?

So, I waited a really long long time for Charlaine Harris to finish her latest book in her Sookie Stackhouse Series and I usually don't let other people influence what I read or my thoughts on a book, BUT! I have been checking out the reviews on Amazon and so far out 517 reviews 291 of those reviews give her latest book a 1 star rating. Much of the fans who reviewed the book called it disappoint, a total let down, horrible, ..etc. Did Harris really cop out on giving her all to her last book in the series or are people being really judgmental that her work didn't end the way they wanted it too?

I really really do want to read this book, but sadly I have a feeling that I too am going to be let down since a lot of those reviews were filled with spoilers and they told me what happens to Eric's character (I wont mention it). So in my heart I honestly don't know whether or not I am going to read this (More than likely I will just to give myself a piece of mind.) without prejudice since I have already polluted myself with other peoples views and opinions. Hopefully I will read it and come away with a more favorable opinion of the last book in the Sookie Stackhouse Series, but my hopes are not high since the character that I most love doesn't really get what he desires in the end.  

I hope that I see it very different from everyone that says Harris did a poor job of ending the series. I believe no writer tries to do a bad job on a book that they work so hard on and that takes up so much of their lives. I hope after I ready it I have something different to tell you. So go out and read it and let me know what you think. Also remember if you don't like it you can always return it.

Please let me know what you think of the book if you've already read it.
