Betrayed by her longtime vampire love, Louisiana cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse must now not only deal with a possible new man in her life—the oh-so-handsome shapeshifter Quinn—but also contend with a long-planned vampire summit. With her power base weakened by hurricane damage to New Orleans, the local vampire queen is vulnerable to those hungry for a takeover. Soon, Sookie must decide what side she'll stand with. And her choice may mean the difference between survival and all-out catastrophe.
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.

Joby (Canada) (2011/04/01): Like all of the Sookie Stackhouse novels, I don't think they are great reads, but they are easy reads and you really want to know what is going to happen next. As with a previous novel or two, there were some editing mistakes that should have been caught, but all in all, a delightful story to retire with at the end of a day.
