Being the 10th on the series, you would think Charlaine Harris would have lost ideas to keep the story intact but she didn’t fail in delivering a wonderfully-chracter driven story meshed with various realities in the life of Sookie Stackhouse.
Coming from the Fae war, Sookie emerges scarred both physically and psychologically in the book and just when she’s about to cope with her life, she discovers that someone either wants to frame her up or kill her. The vampire politics and her husband’s delicate situation is not helping and the arrival of another vampire makes it worse. The Great Reveal is also adding pressure both to Sam and to her friend, Alcide and Claude, her fae cousin is now looking for blood company after losing his sisters. Bill is not getting any better from the bite he has gotten to save Sookie and it appears like everyone’s problems are all going onto Sookie’s plate.
