Publisher Description

Charlaine Harris' Anthony Award-winning Sookie Stackhouse mysteries have become a fixture on the New York Times best-seller list and have inspired the acclaimed HBO series True Blood. In this ninth adventure, Sookie has just tied on her cocktail waitress apron for a night's work when a special report comes on the television. The time has come. The wereanimals have revealed themselves. When the weres and shifters finally come out, the residents of Bon Temps, Louisiana, must deal with the violent aftermath. But a far greater danger threatens. A race of unhuman beings-older, more powerful, and more secretive than vampires or werewolves-is preparing for war. And Sookie will find herself an all-too human pawn in their battle...

    " I love all the Sookie books but I especially love the ones with lots of ERIC!!! (which this one has FYI) "

    " This series really fell off the rails when it was adapted for a cable series True Blood. The TV version has all of the blood and sex but none of the charm and humor that made the first three or four books so delightful. Sadly, the later books became more like the TV series. Barely readable now. "

    " I see what people mean when they talk about inconsistencies. It's like Harris forgets some details from previous work. A bit annoying. You would think the editors would spot those. But on the whole a good story to enjoy. "

    " Oh this one is just so ridiculous. I can't even begin to rate it. Fairy portals? What is going on here Sookie? And why does Eric keep saying "lover"!?!?! Just hate it. I can't even read the passages when he talks. "

    " I think I enjoyed this one the best of the series so far. It came together well and much of my complaints of the previous books aren't here. Lots happens and more importantly lots is revealed both personal to Sookie and about "supes" worlds. "

    " This series is definitely different than the HBO series True Blood, but that's ok with me. I still love both. I think she'll end up with Bill eventually although you can't have a good love story without conflict. I like how Sookie is bringing the more human side out in Eric. Great creative series. "

    " I didn't enjoy this Sookie Stackhouse mystery nearly as much as I did previous installments. I really liked it but it just didn't stick with me as much as the others that came before it. "

    " Snooze fest. The avalanche of characters and the painful descriptions of the wedding just came so ridiculous, and I had to skip many pages. I am not the biggest fan of Quinn -- so that could be my reluctance to this book. I just wish Sookie would go to Eric and stop fighting her feelings. "
