If you think your family relationships are complicated, think again: you haven't seen anything like the ones in Bon Temps, Louisiana. Sookie Stackhouse is dealing with a whole host of family problems, ranging from her own kin (a non-human fairy and a telepathic second cousin) demanding a place in her life, to her lover Eric's vampire sire, an ancient being, who arrives with Eric's 'brother' in tow at a most inopportune moment. And Sookie's tracking down a distant relation of her ailing neighbour (and ex), Vampire Bill Compton. In addition to the multitude of family issues complicating her life, the werewolf pack of Shreveport has asked Sookie for a special favour, and since Sookie is an obliging young woman, she agrees. But this favour for the wolves has dire results for Sookie, who is still recovering from the trauma of her abduction during the Fairy War.

Review quote

"One of the reasons Charlaine Harris has been able to maintain the series so successfully is that she varies her pace between the novels, rather than bring on more massive enemies and events. Sookie has always been a very human sort of heroine and the fact that she needs a quieter time and is still recovering from what happened to her in Dead and Gone sets her apart from other heroines or urban fiction." SFX "Charlaine Harris's latest novel is as witty, quirky and sassy as ever, with strong characters and plenty of mystery and moral dilemmas to keep readers enthralled." PRESS ASSOCIATION "The normal world of barbecues and malls co-exists with the secret one of werewolves, witches and fairies in Harris's cocktail of domestic drama and supernatural adventure." THE DAILY MAIL "Sookie is the literary equivalent of TVs Buffy and is a far superior heroine to Twilight's pushover, Bella. This tenth outing tackles orgasmic Viking sexcapades, hair-curling violence and romance that doesn't make you heave. A gripping read." SCI FI NOW

Our customer reviews

I was reluctant to start this series as there was already so many books in it. But I'm so glad I gave it a go, this book is the 10Th and its just as amazing as the 9 previous. Harris really sucks you in to this supernatural world and Sookie Stackhouse is a lovable, independent and real character that makes you wanting more at the end of every book. I highly recommend this series, but read it from the start cause you don't want to miss out on 1 minute of the adventure. Hope that helped you make your decision :-Dshow more
