Warning: This review might contain (slight) spoilers for those of you who haven't read the previous books in the series. Reading is at your own risk.

After enduring torture and the loss of loved ones during the brief but deadly Faery War, Sookie Stackhouse is hurt and she's angry. 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 the Shreveport pack draws her into the debate. Worst of all, though the door to Faery has been closed, there are still some Fae on the human side-and one of them is angry at Sookie. Very, very angry...
Sookie is somehow always getting into trouble and this book is no exception! Thankfully I love the series as a whole, so I will still be reading the rest of the series, but this book was a major in between book and never really climaxed in my opinion.

Now, don't get me wrong, it was still a really nice read. It just felt like Harris was tying up some loose ends before we work towards the climax in the last three books. Which will, no doubt about that, hold more adventure for Sookie, wether she wants it or not. Hopefully there'll be some Eric, too, as well as some Sam (he deserves more love!).

My overall rating:

Three stars filled with hope for epicness in the future. Sookie needs to kick more butt!
