Publisher's Summary

Charlaine Harris' Anthony Award-winning Sookie Stackhouse mysteries have become a fixture on the New York Times best-seller list and have inspired the acclaimed HBO series True Blood.

In her ninth adventure, Sookie has just tied on her cocktail waitress apron for a night's work when a special report comes on the television. The time has come. The wereanimals have revealed themselves.

But there's an even greater danger threatening Bon Temps. A race of unhuman beings - older, more powerful, and more secretive than vampires or werewolves - is preparing for war. And Sookie finds herself an all-too human pawn in their battle.

Listen to more titles in the Sookie Stackhouse series.

    "I loved this book"

    I love Charlaine Harris and Sookie Stackhouse. Johanna Parker does an wonderful job doing this series. I've bought other Johanna Parker narrated books and was disappointed to find out that she doesn't have a southern accent. She does it so well!

    "Sookie back in trouble"

    I have become a Sookie fan. I read the first book in this series during the HBO run of True Blood. I continued to read the next seven, like I was eating potato chips. You can't read less than one.

    I noticed that the book entered the NY times bestseller list this week at number 1. I only want the prospective reader to know, that you should have read the other books first, since this book relates to the plots of the previous books intensively.

    "loved it!"

    Total listening enjoyment. Much better than the last several books although I enjoyed them also. Love the bits of humor interspersed throughout the book and the every day details we all go through. This series offers a little bit of everything; humor, mystery, fantasy, romance.

    "Good for multiple listens"

    I have read all of the books and "read" the audiobooks. As a narrator, Parker has settled comfortably into the character of Sookie as she has progressed through the series. When I hear Sookie, I hear Parker, not Paquin (although I enjoy Paquin's acting in the series.) I have listened to the entire audiiobook series multiple times. It is fantastic for keeping me going during day to day chores or helping me relax before bed. Harris has signed for 2 or 3 more Sookie books, so hang on to Parker to record them!

    "Looking for love...in all the wrong places."

    Dark and depressing, and not in a good way. This book was so graphically violent I had to skip whole pages. Where is the plucky, innovative Sookie we have come to love? Either Miss Harris was having a very bad year while writing this installment and took it out on her readers, she was so busy with the television series she couldn't find enough time to write, or she's sick to death of vampires. The gratuitous offing of important characters did nothing to drive the story line, and made no sense. I'm sorry, but I was so looking forward to book #9. Unless Charlaine pulls it out in book #10, I think the Southern Vampire series is "Dead and Gone."

    "Guilty pleasures"

    A calorie free indulgence. A funny, fantastic adventure. Just make sure you are on a long trip when you start because you won't want to stop.

    "Team Sookie"

    I have not enjoyed a series of books in many years until I book #9 after Season 1 on HBO ended. Then I started from Book#1 and went all the way back to #9 again --- Listened to them all twice. I did the Anne Rice thing 15 years ago and gave up this genre until now. Charlaine is different and the argument will be made that Anne Rice was more sophisticated and used a better Vampire Lore. BS. Charlaine takes a backseat to no author. This was also my first foray into Audio Books, and I can not imagine another reader than Johanna Parker as Sookie. She has great range as she must with all these colorful characters. I suspect Johanna is Southern as she does not have to fake that aspect of it. I may learn she is British, but regardless she does about 40 voices or more very well. Since I saw the HBO Series first, of course I hear Johanna speak, and I picture Anna Pacquin and the whole HBO cast, when relevant. The TV show is good, but the books are awesome. If I could only enjoy one of the two entertainment treats, it would certainly be the books. And an Alan Ball creation is a hell of a TV show. I suspect the whole Team Eric / Team Bill phenomena existed before the TV show. If you only watched the show, you may think Eric is only ruthless and has no heart. Maybe he didn't before he met Sookie. She is obviously a hot girl, but she felt like an outcast her whole life until the Supernaturals came around --- and these Powerful Characters, who can usually control humans, find themselves equally matched by Sookie's toughness and tenacity. She is responsible, loyal, funny, sweet, and everything you want in a girlfriend/bestfriend. She never brings trouble onto herself, it finds her, and she is forced to show great bravery as well. So being a guy, I am Team Sookie.

    "LEAST favorite of the series"

    This book barely answered any of my questions.. I really wanted Sookie and Eric to solidify their relationship but in the end if was the same Eric vs. Bill debate. I feel like this book was rushed.. when I finished it I just wanted more!

    Bummer :(
