Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in Bon Temps, Louisiana. Now the vampires and the shapeshifters are 'out', you'd think the supernaturals would get on with each other. But nothing is that simple in Bon Temps!

Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.
Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.
I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.
I love the Sookie series and am always waiting impatiently till the next one comes out. However, while reading/listening to this one I was always waiting for the book to get to the actually main event... while there is always other things happening throughout the other books there is usually a main event, i.e., Sookie meet Bill, Sookie saved bill, The witch war/saving Eric... etc...
But this book didn’t offer that, it just seemed that it stretched out a bit of an ending to book 10 and laid ground work for a book 12?... No major event happened and there were lots of questions left hanging, like the last few chapters have been ripped out...
Bit of a downer really, but, if you love the series then I'd still get the book, because if there is a book 12 then you'll be left behind in the storyline, like I said, this book seemed to lay the groundwork for the next book.
I love this series and I was really looking forward to this latest installment, but I found this book lacked something. I had heard this would be one of the last Sookie Stackhouse books and I was hoping that Harris would begin to offer some conclusions to Sookie's story. Instead, the books conclusion is frustratingly ambiguous. I really hope there is another book in the pipeline, Sookie deserves to go out with a bang not parked on the couch watching jeopardy.
Avid reader and listener. Especially (but not just) urban fantasy and romance
So, I hate to be the bearer of bad news and I can only imagine the hours the Mrs. Harris put into this one! I love the southern vampire (sookie) series, but for some reason I can't really relate to Sookie in this one.
Reading this is seeming more and more like homework.
The way Mrs. Harris is laying the foundation for the Sookie-Sam relationship felt forced to me. So much so, that I still can't finish the book! The book begins with constant references to how good Sam is, how Sookie would like to brush his hair, how he defends her, helps her... I don't know, it's making Sam seem even more boring (maybe she should just keep him as a pet). I suppose Sookie will eventually see the light and realize that she has been in love with Sam the whole time. Snore.
I put down 3 stars as a start. As I read I'm taking away or adding stars. Don't hold your breath, though. It's taking me longer than usual to finish this one.
Ah well... I guess I should press play...
BTW. Miss Parker did well, as always.
Hi all fellow listeners. I am disabled and spend most my time at home or walking my beautiful Jack Russell dog Sydney. I live for my dog and fantasy world. Keeps me going having this wonderful site to get all my books from. Remember to laugh and smile every day and throw some love into the mix :)
This book was another great addition to the series. I so love the True Blood series. Hope there is many more to come!!
