Praise for #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse novels "It's the kind of book you look forward to reading before you go to bed, thinking you're only going to read one chapter, and then you end up reading seven."--Alan Ball, executive producer of True Blood "Vivid, subtle, and funny in her portrayal of southern life."-- Entertainment Weekly "Charlaine Harris has vividly imagined telepathic barmaid Sookie Stackhouse and her small-town Louisiana milieu, where humans, vampires, shapeshifters, and other sentient critters live...Her mash-up of genres is delightful, taking elements from mysteries, horror stories, and romances."-- Milwaukee Journal Sentinel "The series continues to be inventive and funny with an engaging, smart, and sexy heroine."-- The Denver Post "Blending action, romance, and comedy, Harris has created a fully functioning world so very close to our own, except, of course, for the vamps and other supernatural creatures."-- The Toronto Star
In the tenth novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series--the inspiration for the HBO(R) original series True Blood--Sookie Stackhouse learns that not even her psychic abilities can help her solve all the problems in Bon Temps, Louisiana... After enduring torture and the loss of loved ones during the brief but deadly Fae War, Sookie Stackhouse is hurt and she's mad. Just about the only bright spot in her life is the love she thinks she feels for vampire Eric Northman. But he's 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 one particular Were draws her into the dangerous debate. Also, unknown to her, though the doors to Faery have been closed, there are still some fae on the human side--and one of them is angry at Sookie. Very, very angry.
