Genre: Fiction, Series, Paranormal Romance, Vampire, Werewolves, Faery, Gothic, Mystery, FantasyAfter 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.
Sookie Stackhouse. How I love thee. Sookie is one of my favourite heroines! She is feisty, assertive and smart. She knows how to kick arse and refuses to let the big bads get her down. On the other hand, she has a soft side when it comes to the sexy and complicated Eric Northman. She can't seem to work her love life out and suffers from all the same insecurities most of us have felt at one time or another. Sookie is a well-rounded and realistic character... well, besides all the mind-reading and love affairs with paranormal beings.
I just can't get enough of the Southern Vampire novels. This is book number 10 in the series. It came out in May last year but I had to wait until April this year to purchase it. Why, you may ask? Because all my books in series need to be in the same covers. Sad but true. So I will always have a 11 month wait between the release date and when I get to buy the new Sookie book.... *sigh* isn't life hard?
In this novel Sookie is recovering both physically and emotionally from the Fae War; she is working out her relationship with Eric; she finds herself entangled in a problem with a dead body; the Weres call in a favour and the the portal to the Faery world may not be as closed as it seems. Phew! Once again Sookie has a lot to contend with, not to mention trying to juggle the everyday tasks of running a house and holding down a steady job! Life sure is busy.
If you are a fan of the Southern Vampire Series then I am sure you'll enjoy this book.
