“Harris is a master at taking several paranormal worlds and plunging them into our reality with humor.” Tulsa World
“The Sookie Stackhouse series seamlessly mixes sensuality, violence and humor as readers experience the people of small-town Louisiana through Sookie’s eyes.” Boulder Weekly
It’s vampire politics as usual around the town of Bon Temps, but never before have they hit so close to Sookie’s heart…
Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she’d rather not know. And now that she’s an adult, she also realizes that some things she knows about, she’d rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one.
There’s a thing or two she’d like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town. It’s the worst possible time for a human body to show up in Eric’s front yard—especially the body of the woman whose blood he just drank.
Now, it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who’s set out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down.

This book is definitely not filler. Too much happens and it happens to set the stage for the series end. A whole bunch of themes come together here, some of which get resolved. This sets the stage for the final book in the series.
First, These books have little to do with the tv series. I stopped watching the series when it left the books and became something of its own. I prefer how the characters get developed in the books much more than in the series, which is way too sensationalistic. Of course, if I had never read the books, I would probably love the show.
Harris is a good writer. So if certain things happen, or do not happen, in the books, there is a good reason for that. While I admit not every book in the series is great, if you read them all you see a clear development of character and plot.
Sookie gets involved in all kinds of things because of her ability to read the minds of mortals and because she cannot read the minds of supernaturals, which is why she dates only supernaturals.
In this book issues about the Fey, vampires and weres all come together.
The plot hinges on the fact that Sookie has the cluviel dor---the fairy supernatural charm given to her by her grandmother.
Some people just want it, others want her to use it for their own benefit. But Sookie has to decide. And, in part, her decision is the focal point of this book.
In short, thanks to how things get resolved in this book, I can't wait for the next one.

Book arrived in good condition. The story is fun to read but start getting a little "too much". Maybe the whole Sooki Srackhouse story could have stopped at book #11.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer

This book was great. I wish that Charlaine was going to keep the Sookie Stackhouse books going. There is only one more left. As soon as I get the book I can't put it down.Published on March 12 2013 by Coco
I found the last book rather slow and a bit more dull, this one has picked up the pace again. Although I am a Sookie/Eric lover and I am dissappointed things are going as I had... Read morePublished on Aug. 2 2012 by zodiac
