Sookie Stackhouse has not had an easy time, as of late. After being tortured relentlessly by the sadistic fairies Lochlan and Neave, she has been left physically and emotionally exhausted. Although she's settled in comfortably with Eric, her viking vampire boyfriend, things are still tough. At least she's got her brother, who seems to have settled down with his girlfriend Michele well enough as well.
Things aren't as peachy-keen as they seem, though. When Eric's maker shows up with Alecksi Romanov, famed son of the last Czar of Russia, things start to get complicated, and fast. Alecksi is crazy, unhinged, perhaps moreso even than Eric, in his younger days, and as for Eric? Well, despite what his maker says, he wants nothing to do with the boy.
And then there's Sookie's cousin, Hadley, who is every bit as telepathic as her, and far more untrained and dangerous. Will she be able to teach him to reel in his Fae abilities? Will Eric be able to get a handle on Alecksi before he snaps and kills everyone? Only time will tell.
Charlaine Harris is most well-known by her Sookie Stackhouse series of novels set in Bon Temps, Louisiana. She herself was raised along the Mississippi River Delta, and uses that setting as a primary source for much of her story material. She has also written several other series, mostly about paranormal events or ghosts. She lives in Southern Arkansas with her husband and three children, and has gone on to help launch a successful TV series (true blood) based on the Sookie Stackhouse series of novels.

And as the political implications of the Shifters coming out are beginning to be felt, Sookie’s connection to the Shreveport pack draws her into the debate. Worst of all, though the door to Faery has been closed, there are still some Fae on the human side—and one of them is angry at Sookie.
