Overview

New in the “addicting” New York Times bestselling series featuring Sookie Stackhouse.

After the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina and the manmade explosion at the vampire summit, everyone—human and otherwise—is stressed, including Louisiana cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse, who is trying to cope with the fact that her boyfriend, Quinn, has gone missing.

It’s clear that things are changing—whether the weres and vamps of her corner of Louisiana like it or not. And Sookie—Friend to the Pack and blood-bonded to Eric Northman, leader of the local vampire community—is caught up in the changes.

In the ensuing battles, Sookie faces danger, death, and once more, betrayal by someone she loves. And when the fur has finished flying and the cold blood finished flowing, her world will be forever altered.

And with HBO's launching of an all-new show, True Blood, based on the Southern Vampire novels, the demand for Charlaine Harris and Sookie Stackhouse is bigger than ever.

Watch a QuickTime trailer for the HBO original series True Blood.

Editorial Reviews

Locus
A thoroughly engaging series
Monroe (LA) News-Star
A style that's much more fun than Anne Rice

There are new changes and new angles in Harris's eighth Sookie Stackhouse paranormal mystery (after All Together Dead). Louisiana telepath and cocktail waitress Sookie barely escapes with her life when she becomes enmeshed in a struggle for control of the Louisiana vampires. At the same time, werewolf leaders begin a fight to the death, and Sookie is caught in the middle. Other changes have a more benign nature: she encounters a most charming man, Niall, who announces that he is a prince of the Fey as well as her great-grandfather. He offers her his considerable powers and gives hints into their strange family history. Sookie gets more good news when she discovers her deceased cousin Hadley had given birth to a baby boy four years ago. By the time Sookie meets him, it's obvious that they share a certain supernatural trait. Sookie's fans will love this addition to the "Southern Vampire Mysteries" series. Recommended for public libraries.
