I love books, it's my great escape.
It was good, but on the light side. I have been spoiled with some of the darker Sookie books. Still this is a great story. I will listen to it at least 3 times.
Well worth the wait and sadly I finished it in a day.......what to do now!?! This book tied up so many loose ends and the romance between Sookie and Eric is delicious! Poor tragic Bill! But somehow I think there's more to tell as far as he and Sookie are concerned... Lots of action, lots of plotting and scheming and magic!~
A very entertaining and satisfying story. It picks up right where the ninth book left off and it ends with love and resolution. I enjoyed it very much.

I have really enjoyed (rated 4 and 5) all the Sookie books until this one...this book could have been an epilogue to the last one....there is a very thin plot line, no attention to settings, not much happening and no new concepts or surprises...I was very disappointed...a firend said to me after reading the hardback - It was as if the author had hired some one else to write the book....
These are such fun books to listen to. So relaxing and the narrator does a brillliant job! Only 2 more books in the series for me to read before the companion book, sigh.... I will be a bit bummed out when its over. I highly reccomend the entire series of these books.
I really enjoyed this book. There may have been a little less action in it than some of the other books but it was nice to see good things happen to a few a of the characters. If you like the rest of the series then this is a must read.
I liked this book just as well as the others in the series. Those who complain that the book is short should look at the other books. They tend to be between 8-10 hours.
I enjoyed the new Charlaine Harris very much. A number of reviewers had said it did not further the story line of the series and they were disappointed with this installment. So thus being forewarned I was glad that time spent in Sookie's world did not require an all out war to keep me interested. The only negative was most of the voices the narrator chose. I actually cringed when Sookie's cousin Hunter spoke and don't get me started on Erik.
Hi, I am a voracious reader with a wide range of tastes.
I had read others say that they were disappointed with this book. I loved it except it was to short. There is more character story and less action. A tying up of many lose ends. A great listen.
I liked it. It isn't Shakespeare but Harris isn't aiming for it. If you want something more esoteric try Stieg Larsson's Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I own all of these books, mostly the audiobooks. To me Johanna Parker IS Sookie, how could you ask for a better narrator for these books? Even if Eric is getting a little wimpy (what is with that?) at least most of the fairies are gone. After the last book I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue with the series. I mean, a Fairy War? Evil fairies? Laughable. After sitting through that book I kind of felt like I had been tortured right alongside Sookie. This book is better.
Besides, if you're addicted to these books you know you're probably going to bite the bullet and buy it, right? I mean, it's THAT kind of series...
