After enduring torture and the loss of loved ones during the brief but deadly Faery War, Sookie Stackhouse is hurt and she's angry. Just about the only bright spot in her life is the love she thinks she feels for vampire Eric Northman. But he's under scrutiny by the new Vampire King because of their relationship. 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. Very, very angry..
When I started this book, a long time ago, I was going to stop it and then re-read the series because it had been so long since the previous book I was worried I would have no idea what is going on. But...when Dead Reckoning came out I could not wait to buy it, which means I had to read this one first. So I just started reading and luckily I feel back into the story with ease. I have to say I feel really sad for Sookie and for Merlotte's, that place has to have accumulated ghosts and stuff with all the crappy stuff that has happened there.

Anyway, I feel right back into the story and Sookie's life. It gets kind of crazy in this book, but that's par for Sookie, although she did not finish the book in the hospital. I had to re-read the last part of this book though because I was a tad confused as to what was happening but other than that this is an excellent installment to the Sookie Stackhouse series!
