Series : #5 Sookie Stackhouse
Format : Urban Fantasy Novel
Reason for Reading : Sookie Stackhouse Challenge, to continue with the series
Another supernatural adventure for telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse. This time the supernatural is closer to home as we wait to find out what happened to Jason after the fourth book. Will he stay human or become a supernatural being. Jason embraces the outcome with an enthusiasm Sookie was not expecting. When supernatural beings start being shot at though, the community suspects Jason and his life is in danger yet again. See it is only were's and shifters that are being targeted and in light of the events of Dead to the World it makes sense.
Sookie begins to investigate when Jason becomes a suspect and Sam is shot. She goes to the vampires for help, Eric in particular who sends a barman over to Merlott's to help while Sam is recovering. She also gets involved in were politics when their pack leader dies in a car accident and a new successor needs to be chosen. It comes down to a ruthless killer and Alcide's father, an ex gambler.
Another great addition to the series. There are so many supernatural characters and species in the mix now, it's a little hard to keep track of what everyone is! I like that there are still some humans in the mix and I hope it stays that way. It's interesting that Sookie straddles both worlds and we are still unsure exactly what she is.
