Charlaine Harris delivers hit after hit with her #1 New York Times bestselling Sookie Stackhouse series—the inspiration for HBO’s award-winning show True Blood. Here, telepathic waitress Sookie and the supernatural residents of Bon Temps, Louisiana, return.

It’s vampire politics as usual around the town of Bon Temps, but never before have they hit so close to Sookie’s heart.

Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she’d rather not know. Now that she’s an adult, she also realizes that some things she knows about she’d rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one.

There’s a thing or two she’d like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town. It’s the worst possible time for a human body to show up in Eric’s front yard—especially the body of the woman whose blood he just drank.

Now, it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who’s set out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down.

    " Disappointed. Hope the next one is a lot better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Audrey | 1/30/2014

    " Better than the last book. More emotional turmoil, but I thought it more proper than the last few books. Some interesting twists. Overall, great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcy Polutnik-criner | 1/30/2014

    " Very disappointed, it feels like she's just trying to hurry up and end the series. very forced. And of course I hate where the endings going. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 1/29/2014

    " Boring. Uneventful. Unnecessary. Nothing really happened in this book until almost the very end and even that hardly qualified as action. Might have to say goodnight to this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/23/2014

    " I always enjoy the Sookie Stackhouse books but this one was probably one of my least favorites. I can tell she's running out of ideas for a story line. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aimee | 1/19/2014

    " Now I have to wait until May for the next one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Valerie | 1/12/2014

    " Ugh. If I had read this in print form, I would have been tempted to take out the red pen and start editing. "...where the driveway terminated." Why can't the driveway simply end? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 I'm awesoMEGAN! | 1/8/2014

    " Ummmmmm meh. They haven't been that good just trying to end the series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 bookczuk | 1/4/2014

    " I think this is the last of the series, and I'm pretty sure Sookie ends up with the one I wanted her to end up with. If it's not the end of the series, it is for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen Fisher | 12/30/2013

    " For some reason, I think this series just got better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Molly | 12/29/2013

    " These books are just fun....nothing too deep or complicated....completely thoughtless.....just what I needed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Westvalley Petsitting | 12/19/2013

    " I enjoy the series for quick fun reads, unfortunately the plot falls apart in this book. I think the author is getting lazy or just worn out trying to keep up with Sookie and her Supe friends and relatives. All in all, I recommend the Sookie Stackhouse mysteries for light reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 12/10/2013

    " Sigh...This ended a little cliff hangery. I have to wait until May. That'll be the last Sookie book! I'm a little sad! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 10/23/2013

    " Not bad. I thought it jumped over a few bits and pieces. It didn't follow on from the last book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather Mcclatchey | 6/4/2013

    " I have enjoyed every Sookie book up to now. Don't get me wrong, the book was ok it just seemed to be lacking a little, almost as if the story is getting tired. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allie | 2/23/2013

    " I have heard from others that they thought that this book was kinda slow. Not really slow, just, wrapping up loose ends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hayley Swearingen | 1/14/2013

    " Not that much happened... Quick read but expected more "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tilda | 9/3/2012

    " I really think that Charlaine Harris does a great job writing these books, so many other authors should know to end a series but Sookie is still good. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mnovello | 8/11/2012

    " This book was a HUGE disappointment and honestly, seemed like filler and a complete waste of a story to me. The last few books give me the impression that the author is just going through the motions and isn't at all interested in keeping up the storyline. What a shame "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aerin | 7/30/2012

    " Not as gripping as the previous books, but I still look forward to the final installment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 7/22/2012

    " I think Charlaine must b sick of vampires. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carla M. | 7/21/2012

    " I thought this was a great next step in the saga of Sookie Stackhouse and her friends. While some reviewers have decried its reliance on the more prosaic details of Sookie's daily existence I felt differently. I thought it added depth to the character (as well as the story) and allowed us to get to know her on a deeper and more meaningful level. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin E. | 7/8/2012

    " I've been a big fan of this series from the beginning but I hate to say that starting with book 9 of the series it started running out of steam. I really only read this because I like to finish what I started. For die-hard fans only. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Devon Grady jennings | 6/26/2012

    " So Over Eric and Sookie... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah K. | 6/23/2012

    " I've been reading this book series since the very first book came out and while this is not on par with many of the earlier books I still liked it quite a bit. It wrapped up quite a few straggling plotlines from earlier in the series which in itself makes it worthy of the price of admission. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andy A. | 6/3/2012

    " Not completely awful but nowhere nearly as good as the first several books in the series. There were way too many mundane details of Sookie's daily life for my taste. I listened to the audiobook version and thought I was going to fall asleep at several points. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 C.G.N. | 5/22/2012

    " I hated the last book but wanted to give Sookie once last chance and listened to this one. I'm so glad I did because this book was more like the great ones earlier in the series. After the last book I was afraid Charlaine was out of ideas but boy did she prove me wrong! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sandy P. | 5/7/2012

    " Even if you're the most ardent of Sookie Stackhouse fans do yourself a favor and avoid this one. It started out ok but soon descended into meaningless plot elements and pretty much went nowhere from there. Very disappointing but I suppose a good series can't go on forever. This author needs to take a lesson from J.K. Rowling on ending a series before it goes to pot. "
