“With her knack for being in trouble’s way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte’s, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. But Sookie suspects otherwise and she and Sam work together to uncover the culprit – and the twisted motive for the attack. But her attention is divided. Though she can’t ‘read’ vampires, Sookie knows her lover Eric Northman and his ‘child’ Pam well – and she realises that they are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, she is drawn into the plot -which is much more complicated than she knows. Caught up in the politics of the vampire world, Sookie will learn that she is as much of a pawn as any ordinary human – and that there is a new Queen on the board . . . “
Is anybody else scared to actually get their hands on this book? I am!! I’ve been a follower of the Sookie Stackhouse series since before the True Blood days and I’m sad to say that ever since the show started airing I’ve been continuously getting more and more disappointed with the books. It almost feels like once Sookie and Eric got together, the chemistry, and even the action in these books started falling flat.
Which brings us to May 3, 2011! I have high hopes for this book to redeem the past two and gives us an exciting new adventure, and bring back the passion between Sookie and Eric (Go Team Eric! You sexy Viking!).
It does sound promising…here’s the blurb:
Chapter 1 is actually available on Charlaine Harris’s site, I won’t read it yet, but you can, just click here!
