For mind-reading barmaid Sookie Stackhouse, the day-to-day activities of the supernatural communities in and around Bon Temps, Louisiana, are of vital interest. She is blood-bound to the leader of the vampires, a friend to the local werewolf pack, works for a man who is a pure shapeshifter and has a younger brother who’s a werepanther. And she herself, though only some supes can detect it, has fairy blood in her veins.
Mainstream society has known about the Undead for years, but most humans aren’t up on the shifting power dynamics in the paranormal community. To them, the Vamps are mysterious seductive creatures—undead and nonhuman, but a recognized part of society nonetheless. They don’t even know about the Weres. But that’s about to change.
The Were community has finally decided to follow the lead of the Vamps and reveal their existence to the ordinary world. It all appears to be going smoothly, but tensions rise when the body of a werepanther is found in the parking lot where Sookie works. The human cops think that a human did it. The panthers think it was her Were brother, Jason. Sookie sets out to clear his name—a task made complicated when she finds out that her life, too, is in danger….

Charlaine Harris continues to draw us into her world of vamps, weres, and fae folk, and it's still a fun ride. Love her characters -- they have depth, wit, and I wish they lived next door. Life is that much more interesting since Sookie came on the scene.

I've lost the emotional investment in this character, and I fear Harris may have, as well. How many more characters can she add to a book? And that chapter Lauren P references is a bit of a yawner..

First off, I love ERIC! (I re-read chapter 10 over and over again, *sigh* love him!) Secondly, in order to get a full understanding and appreciation for the Sookie series you MUST start from the beginning and read through! You should NOT just read 4 out of the 9 at random and expect to fall in love. Yes, all the books can stand alone, but why do that to yourself and miss out on the ride of a life time starting with Dead until Dark and ending with a book yet to be written! I was super sad at the death of one of my fav characters, but still no where close to being disappointed with this book. Can't wait until Dead in the Family in May! If you are like me and can't wait till May, you can read chapter 1 of Dead in the Family on Charlaine Harris's website. I did!

An okay read, but very flat. I kept waiting for there to be some suspense or something to pull me in, but nada. I'm hoping the next book I read from her is better. I bought 4 books in this series to see what they were about. I almost wish I hadn't. I'll keep reading.
Charlaine Harris keeps me coming back for more!!! I love her books and I can't wait for the next one. Sookie is a great character, you never know what she will do next. Keep them coming!!!!!
