Bestseller Harris mixes humorous Southern-fried fantasy with biting satirical commentary in her seventh novel to feature Sookie Stackhouse, the bubbly telepathic barmaid from Bon Temps, La. (after 2006's Definitely Dead). Sookie attends an all-important central U.S. vamp summit on the shores of Lake Michigan as a "human geiger counter" for Sophie-Anne Leclerq, vampire queen of a Louisiana weakened by Katrina and who will be tried during the event for murdering her king. Sookie knows the queen is innocent, but she's hardly prepared for other shocking murders, not to mention protests by the Fellowship of the Sun, a right-wing antivampire movement. Her sleuthing skills, along with those of her new telepath friend, Barry the Bellboy, are put to the extreme test. Harris juggles a large cast, including several romantic contenders for Sookie's heart, with effortless exuberance. HBO's True Blood, based on this addictive series, is scheduled to begin its TV run this fall. 11-city author tour. (May)

All the Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse books are great and fun entertainment.Published 1 month ago by Chris
Sookie Stackhouse is one of my favourite female characters of all time. She is witty,strong,kind and hero power is very cool. Once you read one book, you will be hooked.Published 3 months ago by Maria Amalia Santos
The Sookie Stackhouses are awesome. I have read them a few times. I just decided it was time to own my own copies instead of borrowing from the library. They are a must read.Published 3 months ago by Christa
