I love me some Sookie, but this one seemed like filler. A bunch of plots were advanced a little bit. In a long-ish and drawn-out way. Ho hum. Bring on the next one. ( )

Another good book in the life of Sookie Stackhouse. It was interesting to learn more about her family history and Eric's history. As always, this is a great series to listen to on audio. When I'm done I will miss having Sookie Stackhouse and the other characters ride to work with me. I recommend this series of books. ( )

This seemed more like a few missing chapters from the previous book than a stand-alone novel. It introduced some new issues, then resolved them (for the most part) ... I think I would have rather had Harris add this story to the next real book and leave out all the extra stuff.

And I've got no idea why the first chapters started the way they did. She named them by the month (or part of the month) that the chapter took place in, as if that made some difference to the readers. I should check that out again ... clearly I missed the significance. Maybe it's got something to do with the next book?

Either way, transition books stink. ( )

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)
