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 Eric's boss 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…
Sookie is my one of my favorite characters of all time. I love the battle of thoughts she has through the entire series. It didn't subside in Dead in the Family. I was so excited for this one, I have been waiting too long. I enjoyed that all the more "major" characters played a role. I was a little disappointed in how Bill didn't play a bigger role. You did get to see Eric in a different light. It was definitely something that I would have Never thought about when it came to the '"typical" Eric.
I usually always try my best to never give spoilers away. What I can say is that there are shocking appearances that I am still reeling over. Claude has also grown into less of a egotistical character. Sookie also decided to stick to Eric instead of floating about between the fellas. As always Charlaine Harris didn't disappoint.
Yes you should buy this. If you haven't started the series, YOU are missing out.
