The 8th book of the Sookie Stackhouse series takes place just after Katrina and the bombing at the vampire summit. Sookie is recovering well and still searching for news on all of her vampire acquaintances – among the missing is her most recent boyfriend.
This book seems to be cut into three parts, different events that effect Sookie’s life all the while interweaving with the overarching storyline as Sookie finds out that she has more relatives still living than she thought. Like much of the series, there is death, hostile takeovers and new revelations are slowing starting to emerge. Sookie is still trying to figure out where she fits in the picture and keep herself safe despite her friends help.
I really enjoyed this book, much more than book 7, although the three separate stories split the book up more than I would have liked. Of course, we are left with small clues as to what is to come and I couldn’t resist picking up the next book of the series immediately.
