This latest in the Sookie Stackhouse series came out earlier this week. This one  focuses on the fairies, against the backdrop of the two-natured (shifters) proclaiming their existence to the world. Remember how the Harry Potter books took a sudden, dark turn in Order of the Phoenix? Yeah, this book does a similar thing. I mean, the last book, with the overthrowing of the Louisianna heirarchy was gloomy enough. This book led off with a shocker of a death (no one we really cared about all that much, but still...) and ended with one, accompanied by plenty of assault, torture and vindictivness in between. But for everyone else out there who's an Eric fan like me... THEY GET BACK TOGETHER!!!! Yay! (And they might even be married. Sookie's not sure, so neither are we.)

Okay. No more spoilers. It was a good book. CH keeps you reading way past when you should be in bed. I have some questions after it's all said and done, and it's frustrating me to have to wait months, possibly a year for the next one. Grrr.

  1. I definitely agree with this review. Especially with the dark turn sum-up. :( It was heavy after the last book, when I was hoping it wouldn't be. oh well...still good and I'm so an Eric fan!

    I was always a huge fan of Alcide and Quinn (if they didn't have their respective drawbacks of crazy ex gf combined with resentment issues and an overly needy mom and sis) though. Maybe it's cuz i have a thing for shifters (aka muscley, animalistic carnivores...yummy) more so than vamps (aka skinny, pale

    I want more Sookie!
