Sookie is back! Unfortunately, someone has just crucified her sister-in-law. Was it because Crystal was a were-panther, or did someone have a more personal ax to grind? To complicate matters, Sookie’s fae ancestry is causing some additional disruption in her life.

This installment was pasable. Sadly, I’m finding the faery storylines to be wholly uninteresting, so I’m somewhat relieved that this may be the last we hear of that. I’m a little curious where the Sookie/Eric relationship is going -- something tells me that good ol’ "happily ever after" isn’t in the cards.

I feel like it wasn't really a book so much as aftermath. And book 10 promises to be MORE aftermath. I'm like, come on, just write a tome the length of a Harry Potter novel and let's be done with it already. But maybe I'm being ungrateful. As Neil Gaiman says, [writers:] are not our bitch. I'm only mildly disappointed by Quinn's brief and quick appearance/exit in the book. That means he *should* feature more prominently in book 10. did anyone else feel that Sookie and Jason both underwent a major character overhaul between this book and the last? I almost think I missed something. and Eric saying, "you're killing me." Heart wrenching stuff. Do you think Bill is dead & gone (har har)? CH did seem to be saying good-bye to him. the last book had the big armageddon like catastrophe but this book really felt more like the end of days. And we were just on the periphery of the war. No Harry Dresden like Nevernever to cross over into & explore... Sookie was a less a problem solver in this book than a passive participant in the unfolding of events. That bugs me. I miss team Amelia/Sookie solving crimes & painting toes... Overall, not my favorite, but will always look forward to what comes next.
