"Sookie is back again!"

The supernatural community in Bon Temps is reeling from two hard blows. The natural disaster Katrina was the first and then the man-made horror explosion at the vampire summit was the second. Sookie Stackhouse is safe but she is still a little dazed by it all. She would love to have things go back to normal but that isn't going to happen.

Her were-tiger boyfriend, Quinn is still missing but that's the least of her worries. The weres and vampires both start some battles that Sookie would rather she wasn't involved in. Danger and death would be enough for anyone to handle but Sookie also has to deal with a betrayal by someone she loves.

In this 8th Southern Vampire novel Sookie takes a rest from being physically hurt but mentally she takes a lot of hits. She has never had much family but in this book she makes some surprising discoveries and finds herself with some new relatives and also turning her back on another.

Dealings with all kinds of supernatural beings take place in this newest installment making it a paranormal readers dream. All the characters we know and love are all present and there are also some that are not so loved. Sookie doesn't seem to have time to take in all the events in this book but she keeps strong and soldiers on just like Sookie does.

This series is one you can fall in love with and it has a main character you can only admire. The series just keeps getting better and the twists and turns more and more interesting. The ending in this newest edition will leave fans dying for more but of course there is another long wait ahead.

Charlaine Harris has created something unusual and realistic in this series and has a brilliant cast of characters to top it off. If you have never tried this series then you haven't yet read the best!

After the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina and the manmade explosion at the vampire summit, everyone—human and otherwise—is stressed, including Louisiana cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse, who is trying to cope with the fact that her boyfriend Quinn has gone missing.

It’s clear that things are changing—whether the weres and vamps of her corner of Louisiana like it or not. And Sookie—Friend to the Pack and blood-bonded to Eric Northman, leader of the local vampire community—is caught up in the changes.

In the ensuing battles, Sookie faces danger, death, and once more, betrayal by someone she loves. And when the fur has finished flying and the cold blood finished flowing, her world will be forever altered.
