In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the disaster of the Vampire Summit, Sookie Stackhouse had hoped things might finally return to normal; as normal as things can be for a telepath. But many lives, and dead lives, had been lost with many others left wounded. There was a lot to recover from; uncertainty and danger surrounded Sookie as the vampires struggled to protect a weakened Queen, and the werewolves drew ever closer to taking out their own pack.

Sookie, however, has other things on her mind. There was the double wedding to start with, not to mention the total disappearance of her boyfriend Quinn, at least she thinks he is still her boyfriend, but she's not heard from him in so long she and can't be certain of his feelings. Also, someone is gong out of their way to make life difficult for Sookie and those close to her.

Sookie is in for a lot of surprises, a few are even family related and Hadley also manages to deliver a bombshell from the beyond. Eric has a revelation of his own and even Sam has a few tricks up his sleeves, or at least under his clothing. Sookie finds out that even a telepath can be surprised as everyone seems to have something their keeping from her, but the biggest betrayal will come from someone she loves.

This book is chockfull of excitement, events and surprises, right up until the very last page. An enjoyable read to pass the time and a great story in the continuing adventures of Sookie Stackhouse. ( )

Once again Charlaine does another good Sookie book, but it's nothing spectacular. ( )

I feel like a lot of things happened in this book, but nothing really happened. The Were-war happened, and then the fae went to war, and then there was that thing with the werepanthers. Overall though, the only purpose any of these events had were just to get the characters positioned for the next book. On the surface this book has a lot to offer, but looking past that the reader will realize that this book doesn't contribute that much to the rest of the series. It simply served its purpose of moving the story forward.

The reason why this story has 2 1/2 stars instead of 3 is because there are way too many sub-plots going on that it is hard to keep track of all the characters involved. I feel like too many things were crammed into this book and many of them didn't serve a further purpose past their resolution in this book. Why cram something into the series that isn't going to be important later on? Though this is not the first time Harris has been guilty of this in this series...

There were two things that really bothered me in this book, and they both deal with Quinn. The first is how the heck is the reader supposed to know that Quinn killed Andre? Why is that just kinda thrown in this book instead of actually being a scene in the last? Seems more of an afterthought than anything else. The second thing is how did Sookie question Quinn's absence? Didn't she think it was strange that he wouldn't even call her? He refusal of reaching out to him was annoying and out of character. She dropped everything when Bill up and left her without staying in contact with her, why does she just get mad at Quinn? And then there's her heartless breakup...I get it, she wants to be put first. But then why would she think about Eric that way? He will never put her first, despite his affection for her. ( )

Though she can’t walk or see quite as well as she used to, my mother, Jean Harris, remains the most complete person I have ever met. She’s been the bulwark of my existence, the foundation I was built on, and the best mother a woman could have.

If this was The Lord of the Rings and I had a smart British voice like Cate Blanchett, I could tell you the background of the events of that fall in a really suspenseful way.
