The supernaturals
in Louisiana are in
turmoil, and poor Sookie Stackhouse is smack-dab in the middle. This eighth book in the telepathic waitress's first-person adventures ties together ongoing plot threads from previous novels for a true blowout of a book.
No one dishes the paranormal thrills quite like the incomparable Harris!

Louisiana is still reeling from both Hurricane Katrina and the recent terrorist bombing of the vampire convention. Sookie tries to keep her head down, but all too soon she becomes the target of killers. There is both a werewolf war and a vampire coup brewing, and because of her ties to both communities, Sookie is a sitting duck.

Adding to her misery is the mysterious absence of her boyfriend, the weretiger Quinn. In the midst of this turmoil, Sookie is intrigued when vampire sheriff Eric calls and says she must take a meeting with a mysterious stranger. With war on the horizon, death, loss and betrayal are inevitable. When the dust clears Sookie's world may never be the same. (ACE, May, 368 pp., $24.95)
