From the Publishers:
“New in the ‘addicting’ New York Times bestselling series featuring Sookie Stackhouse.
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.
And with HBO’s launching of an all-new show, True Blood, based on the Southern Vampire novels, the demand for Charlaine Harris and Sookie Stackhouse is bigger than ever.”
I really did like this book! Then again- I’m a fan of Quinn, so I was a little disappointed, but I’m also a fan of Eric, sooooooo, not so disappointed: D This book held true to Charlaine’s fantastic rhythm of action and normality- oddity and reality- that makes this series so addicting and I am really hoping that she keeps surprising me as the series goes on. The revelations about Sookie and Jason’s family were definitely unexpected, but not absurd and I like the idea that she’s going to have some family in the crazy supernatural mix of people who all want a piece of her. Though, the way that she deals with Quinn and his drama (a little harsh in my book), I’m not too sure that she is that easily taken advantage of in the relationship department.
I may get stoned for saying, but I’m glad that Bill seems to be pretty firmly out of the picture- he’s always been a bit of a D-Bag in my book.
I’m now getting to the end of the books that have already been published so from here on out, I’ll need to wait like the rest of the world until she’s done writing the next book to see what happens next.
