In the tenth novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series—the inspiration for the HBO® original series True Blood—Sookie Stackhouse learns that not even her psychic abilities can help her solve all the problems in Bon Temps, Louisiana...

After enduring torture and the loss of loved ones during the brief but deadly Fae War, Sookie Stackhouse is hurt and she’s mad. 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 the new vampire king because of their relationship. And as the political implications of the shifters’ coming-out are beginning to be felt, Sookie’s connection to one particular Were draws her into the dangerous debate. Also, unknown to her, though the doors to Faery have been closed, there are still some fae on the human side—and one of them is angry at Sookie. Very, very angry.


  • Not my favorite of the series

    By Irishgirl99
    This book seemed to stray too far from the usual cast of characters. Too many peripheral characters and not enough focus on the old characters we know and love.
  • Different, better

    By WVfan
    I like this darker, serious version of Sookie. It's about time, considering her circumstances. I hope she and Claude remain close, and Jason gets some more FaceTime.
  • Beginning of the end

    By Review 1002
    Sad to say this one is the beginning-of-the-end of a great series. Between this one and Dead Reckoning it's time for Bill, Erik or Sookie to jump a shark and let the series receive its final death. Thank you CH but all good things must come to an end. Please let the series die a final death of glory and stop milking it.

    Awesome as always!
  • Strong book with mushy finish

    By Leahabrew
    I found the book enthralling in many respects. However, I reached the final page and thought 'huh?'... I am used to strong finishes and was disappointed in the dead space left with the conclusion. No thrill or warmth to lead you to the next installment. With only two more books before this series is brought to an end, I hope we are treated to exemplary story lines to finish out Sookie's character.
  • Ehhhh

    By La Princesse
    While I am throughly in love with the series this is least favorite it red like a filler. No real substance. I hope the next one is better
  • Why the 'disappointed' reviews?

    By katrachita02
    The only thing disappointing about this is that it is too short. As an avid reader, I see this book as one to entertain yourself and/or to feed your level of enthusiasm and excitement. It is quite good and I love it! The only thing I am waiting for is the next book. The sipnosys of Dead Reckoning was awesome and I am going to pre-order it soon! I hope is as good as the previous books. :) Love you CH!
  • Better than the last flop!!!!

    Couldn't put this one down.
  • The book

    By Robsilla
    This book was good but I don't think it should be for us john muir students. I don't mind it because as you may already know I'm mature well mor than others,and some moms may not like there kids reading about a man and woman fighting to have sex. Well that's my point of thought
