This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
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.
Too much action for my taste. You barely get a chance to breathe before your brain needs to work overtime in order to figure out what is going on.
First part of the book, Sookie needs to deal with one type of problem and in the last part she needs to deal with another. It’s constantly all the supernatural creatures that needs her help.
The book made me tired. I was drained from energy after reading this because there were so much stuff going on. I didn’t like this book one bit! Maybe I’m tired of hearing about Sookie and all the other supporting characters problems all the time. Everything that happens seem like plots taken from the other books. Absolutely nothing original about this book! It was a waste of time.
The surprise moments for me seemed like an endless déjà vu.
The way Harris writes is always a treat, I really love how detailed and personal her way of writing is. It makes you feel a part of her story!
Now the one thing that had me remotely excited was the ending, I’m excited to see how Sookie’s going to deal with that!
