This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
The vamps have been out for years, and now the weres and shifters have decided to follow the lead of the undead and reveal their existence to the ordinary world. Sookie Stackhouse already knows about them, of course – her brother turns into a panther at the full moon, she’s friend to the local were pack, and Sam, her boss at Merlotte’s bar, is a shapeshifter.
The great revelation goes well at first – then the horribly mutilated body of a were-panther is found in the parking lot of Merlotte’s, and Sookie agrees to use her telepathic talent to track down the murderer. But there is a far greater danger than this killer threatening Bon Temps: a race of unhuman beings, older, more powerful, and far more secretive than the vampires or the werewolves, is preparing for war. And Sookie is an all-too-human pawn in their ages-old battle.
I wasn’t a fan of this book. It felt like a mess to be honest. Only thing that was good about it was Eric. This big rambling mess seemed like it wasn’t finished! It was rushed and therefor the plot lacked majorly.
I used to be excited about the place it took place in a Southern state but it’s too exaggerated.
Sookie’s never been the most intelligent but in this book she comes across as stupid and her inner dialogs are annoying me.
The plot in this was my least of all the overall plots and the focus lies at Sookie’s fae relatives, which is my least favorite of the supernatural creatures. They don’t mash up with the rest of the story and to be honest, they don’t belong in the universe that Harris created. My next least favorite is the werepanthers, they are the weirdest of them all and I despise them with every fiber in my body. I don’t give a rat’s ass about them. I hope the next book will be about the vampires again! There’s too much shit going on and it overshadows the good that happens!
