After being disappointed with the first three books in the series this was a nice surprise. (I've been SOOO trying to like them because I've enjoyed the series on HBO.) This was definitely the best novel in the series so far. The author (or her editors) have improved upon the story by keeping it more of a focused, working plot not quite such a jumbled mess like the first books.

Although, there's still something lacking in the writing and the author has to stop assuming that we know exactly what's going on in her (the author's) head when she has a character refer to something in a conversation (or their head) without elaborating it. This has happened a few times and when I'm as tired as I am reading a book before bed, I'd prefer to "have my hand" held on stuff like that so I don't have to lay and wonder "What the heck are they referring to?" It's distracting when I'm trying to relax (if that makes sense).

I have really gotten to like Eric, who is the character that keeps going in this book. I also get a kick out of Bubba (except for the cat thing). Pam, though not in the book as often is also pretty cool.

Overall the story is good and has gotten better, even though predictable. I'll continue reading these at leisure just in case a lot of book plot comes through the tv series. :)

I so love this series. This has been one of the funnier books so far in my humble opinion. Although, in all honesty, I think I would have prefer Eric to have been "himself" so to speak while with Sookie. She sure is meeting some interesting folks! :-)

I don't know....after the Black Dagger Brotherhood books, I just can't seem to find a good vampire book that can compare. I got 20 pages into this one and decided it wasn't the book for me.

Great book, most sets that have more then two books to it kind of get redundent well this set dose not. It just gets better and better.

This was one of my favorites of this series so far. Erik, without all of the annoying qualities of Erik? Amazing!

Harris has done it again. She has written a strong novel that is sure to bring more people in to the fold.

I bought this book to start this series, secondhand. It is yellowed and beat up looking but intact. Loved the book and went hunting to find the second in series. If you dont mind a well used book {no loose or missing pages} here it is. My second in the series is the same shape but again a great read. I am now hooked on this series.
