Since becoming involved with vampires, Sookie Stackhouse's life has become a virtual roller-coaster ride. These adventures of a telepathic waitress, told in the first person, have made the hugely talented Harris one of the genre's brightest stars. With complicated plots and multifaceted characters, the Southern Vampire series is unmatched when it comes to edge-of-your-seat thrills, humor and romantic triangles.

Although she agreed to
help Sophie-Anne, the vampire queen of Louisiana, telepathic waitress Sookie
is not looking forward to attending
the Vampire Summit. Both Hurricane Katrina and the attempted power grab by her now permanently deceased
new husband, the vampire king of Arkansas, have left Sophie-Anne in
a precarious position.

On a positive note, Sookie's new main squeeze, Quinn the weretiger, will also be attending the summit. But even that gets awkward because Eric the Norseman begins making moves that suggest he's still interested in Sookie. When you add in murder, politics, skullduggery and anti-vampire fanatics, you have the recipe for potential disaster and, as always, Sookie is caught right in the middle. (ACE, May, 336 pp., $24.95)
