Latest installment of the Sookie Stackhouse series. Sookie gets involved in the latest political shake-ups in both the Vampire and Were communities. In the meantime, Sookie has a witch roommate to deal with and her newlywed brother to look after. Quinn isn't as attentive as she had hoped he'd be, and both Eric and Bill make sure Sookie knows that they are interested in her. The best part is that Sookie learns of two completely different relatives that she didn't even know she had. Good book.

Loved the revelation at the end! Yet another fun Sookie Stackhouse book. Many ratings have rated certain books of better quality than others in the series, but I think Harris's writing is consistent. She's weaving a complete story through several volumes, rather than stand-alone books. (Even though she insists that they could be read that way, I think it hurts the story.) My only quibble with this book is one I have with all the others: The first few pages of each book are too much backstory, and not enough new story. I'm getting tired of being re-introduced to the characters for each book. Even still, I'm completely addicted to this series.

This book was predictable but such fun! I am a huge fan of the series and have devoured each one since falling in love with the HBO series True Blood. I can't wait for the next one in the series to come out. If you are a fan of Sookie Stackhouse or True Blood you will enjoy this one!

This is without a doubt one of the best Sookie books i've ever read. Don't get me wrong. I love all the action books where she's jumping from one world ending crisis to another. Those were and are great. But this one allows you to spend some time with Sookie. She's cranky at work. Her brother lets her down. And there are some really great action parts in it. It's just more of a 'get to know Sookie better' thing. I was thrilled to get to know the other part of her family. I can't wait for that to be expanded on. Really really great stuff.

I thought the plot for this one was all over the place. There was no big "climax" each scenerio got taken care of then they moved on to the next one. There was nothing that made me just have to stay up late and finish the last few chapters.

I loved it. Each Sookie Stackhouse book gets more exciting than the previous. There's a combination of old and new characters with lots of action and intrigue.

Sookie Stackhouse is back home after surviving the explosion at the vampire summit, wishing things would get back to normal. But that isn't about to happen. Her weretiger boyfriend, Quinn, is missing. The Louisiana Vampires are going through a hostile takeover. And, Sookie is stuck in the middle of were politics, trying to keep the peace. She is also introduced to her great-great grandfather, who turns out to be a Fae King.

Although I enjoyed the 8th book in the series, it felt like a bunch of short stories that were held together by Sookie's character. The story about the weres and their problems ended, just in time to start the story of the Nevada Vampires taking over in Louisiana. Even though it was entertaining, my biggest problem was the lack of mystery. At least she brought back many characters from the past and included them in the stories. Overall, it was a very entertaining read. My rating: 4 Stars.
