It?s been six years since the Great Revelation, when the vampires of the world made themselves known to humans. Sookie?s boyfriend Quinn, the were-tiger, is missing.
The big Bon Temps event, the double wedding of Portia Bellefleur to Glen Vick and Andy Bellefleur to Halleigh, is finally happening. So far things are going perfectly and without a hitch. Well there is one hitch. Sookie is asked to be one of Halliegh?s bridesmaids, when one faints and is riding an ambulance to the hospital. Sookie feels better being in the wedding, but she still has to work the bar with Sam at the reception.
Bill pleads to Sookie to accept his apology and explanation of what happened because of the Queen of Louisiana orders. He asks that she give him a chance and take him back. How could she?
Who is the beautiful withered man that Sookie sees at the wedding? Eric takes Sookie to a very fancy restaurant to meet her great-grandfather, face-to-face. It turns out that he is the fairy prince!
But more dramatic than that, on their (Eric and Sookie) drive home, they are pulled over by a cop. Only it?s not a cop, but a Were shooting to kill Sookie. Eric takes a bullet for Sookie, saving her life.
To complicate matters more between Sookie and Eric, there is the blood bond between the couple. Eric confesses to Sookie that he remembers everything from the time that he lost his memory and was staying (hiding out) at her house.
The next morning, Sookie reads in the newspaper that Maria-Star was murdered. Who would have a motive to murder the Were photographer?
Octavia finally shows at the Sookie?s front door for Amelia. Her roomie rushes to the shocking awakening to meet her punishment, and expecting the worst.
There is a war brewing in the Were community between Alcide and Furnan. With the help of Octavia and Amelia, Sookie finds out that one of Furnan?s men are responsible for Maria-Star?s death. Furnan?s wife has been kidnapped, and the only one he believes to have the motive is Alcide. In one of the most tense and exciting fight scenes since the packmaster competition, Sookie is wounded (bitten) by Priscilla, the homeless female Were packmaster, responsible for the killings.
With the Queen of Louisiana incapacitated for the time, (she?s in the painful process of growing her legs back), the weakened territory of Louisiana is ripe for the taking. The answer to who would take the opportunity could lay behind the identity of the new Asian vampire Jonathan, who Sookie meets at the double wedding reception.
When Frannie shows up at Sookie?s door, will she be able to save Quinn from the trap that the vamps have waiting?
My opinion is that Sookie will not settle with Quinn. The blood bond between her and Eric, and her hatred towards Bill lessening, confuses her decision on who she wants to be with. I believe that she will finally end up with Bill Compton or Eric Northman. But who will she choose?
sookie stackhouse is someone who lives next door or one of your good friends. She's always at the wrong place at the wrong time and she seems to attract alot of interesting and sometimes dangerous things. The book was a really fun and page turning read. can't wait for the next.
