This one is not good as the last one or the rest of the series.The plot dragged too much.Sookie was too much sulky and cranky for my taste.I love the old happy go like nature of Sookie.And somehow the plot seems boring to me.Eric's creator and his brother were annoying.And really I don't like seeing Eric as helpless and under someone's control.It was totally un-Eric like.I want the confident and cocky Eric back.
And the ending feels rushed to me.Eric's creator Ocella's death was like thrown in there for Sookie's benefit which of course I didn't like too.It would be interesting if we get to know a little more about Colman.I felt like he was just pop out of thin air.
So the bottom line is ,not one of the best Sookie story for my taste. ( )

Reading Sookie is one of those guily pleasures in life. They are really crazy books, yet I find I have not been able to put them down! This book did not spoil that, but it is pretty "out there"! ( )

Pretty ok is now wow but continues to put me inside the novel, think that the story continue to be very interesting but they were too many plots, lets plots and more development would be better...Anyway I will not say is bad... ( )

This installment of the series offers a few new points of interest as additional sup communities come out to the public, and we meet the families of some of the other characters. At book 10, I felt the series was holding up well. Sookie continues to evolve as she is exposed to life outside of the 'normal' box. ( )

Harris is no mean shakes at romance — Erik may be dead, but he's still hot — and she serves up the paranormal thrills and juggles her enormous cast with ease. But more to the point, she seamlessly blends all this into a lovingly observed portrait of small-town Louisiana.

After the brief but deadly Faery War, Sookie Stackhouse is hurt and she's angry. Just about the only bright spot in her life is the love she thinks she feels for vampire Eric Northman who is under scrutiny by the new Vampire King because of their relationship. And as the political implications of the Shifters coming out are beginning to be felt, Sookie's connection to the Shreveport pack draws her into the debate and up against a Fae who wants her dead.… (more)
