Publisher's Summary

Sookie's beginning to get used to being surrounded by all varieties of supernatural beings - but even she has her limits. She'd really like to take a while to get over being betrayed by Bill, her long-time vampire lover, and get used to her new relationship with the sexy shapeshifter Quinn - but instead, she finds herself attending the long-planned vampire summit, the destination of choice for every undead power player around, as a sort-of human 'Geiger counter' for Sophie-Anne Leclerq, vampire queen of Louisiana.

But the job is fraught with difficulties. Sophie-Anne's power base has been severely weakened by Hurricane Katrina, and she's about to be put on trial for murder. Sookie knows the queen is innocent, but she's hardly prepared for other shocking killings: it looks like there are some vamps who would like to finish what nature started.

With secret alliances and backroom deals the order of the night - Sookie must decide which side she'll stand with, and quickly, for her choice may mean the difference between survival and all-out catastrophe.

Loved It

Any additional comments?

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.

Happy Reading

I love the Sookie Stackhouse Series!

I love everything Charlaine Harris does and this is no exception! What a great listen! Thoroughly enjoyable and of course snaps to the narrator who, as always, does a fantastic job!

Tireless action

What did you like best about this story?

Sookie's quick thinking & her relationship with Eric

Any additional comments?

Sookie outdoes herself in this epic instalment. She works tirelessly for the vampire world, trying to fit her shifter tiger boyfriend into her busy schedule. She is the heroine, if unrecognised by her vampire acquaintances, of this story and really shows her strength as a female lead. I just love the interplay between Eric Northman and herself.

Altogether excellent

In this, book seven in the Sookie Stackhouse series, our heroine is working in an official capacity for the vampires of Louisiana as they attend an important conference. While Sookie struggles to walk the tightrope between the various vampire factions, she little realises that there is a bigger plot. Someone wants the vampires dead, and they don't care how many they kill. A great addition to the series and one of my personal favourites.

On par

Another enjoyable (if not full on) venture into Sookie's world. Dark, poignant and emotional alongside a good yarn. Used to her style now so can see how some of the storylines are going to develop quite early but doesn't take away from the enjoyment.

Truly an experience not to be missed!

Any additional comments?

Everything I read I remember, everything I hear I remember...

So as you can imagine I will consume a book and move on never to return, this series of books however are the only ones I have gone back through multiple times. This is because the characters are so intricately designed they become real, the story lines while based in fantasy from the off never fail to surprise and thoroughly delight. I have never had such an all round almost tactile experience from something that I've read to make me come back to them so often and with that first time read anticipation it's nuts because I remember every word already.

They are utterly hilarious, full of blood-pumping action and downright hot in equal measure with so many more facets that will have you also coming back time and again.
The books do not copy the T.V. Show plot line they are completely different the anchors for both being the familiarity of the main characters but both being superb in their own ways.

A definite BUY IT NOW! you certainly will not regret it.

Very entertaining

This book is very entertaining and I could not stop until I had read the whole book. I loved the mix of characters and the plot of the book. You can listen to the book whilst basking in the sun in the park or whilst taking a walk. Absolutely beautiful.

Another good Sookie Stackhouse read

When I first started reading the Southern Vampire Mysteries I did not realise how addictive they could be.



Johanna Parker does a great job of narration and is now an integral part of the experience for me.



All the books are good and this lives up to that. I am going on to read other Charlaine Harris series.
