It's all about family ...
Sookie Stackhouse is dealing with a whole host of family problems, ranging from her own kin (a non-human fairy and a telepathic second cousin) demanding a place in her life, to her lover Eric's vampire sire, an ancient being who arrives with Eric's 'brother' in tow at a most inopportune moment. And Sookie's tracking down a distant relation of her ailing neighbour (and ex), Vampire Bill Compton.
In addition to the multitude of family issues complicating her life, the werewolf pack of Shreveport has asked Sookie for a special favour, and since Sookie is an obliging young woman, she agrees. But this favour for the wolves has dire results for Sookie, who is still recovering from the trauma of her abduction during the Fairy War.
I first read and reviewed the book when it came out in 2010 – Dead in the Family review
Here’s my thoughts this time around…
Still enjoyed it, read pretty fast like the first time. Still love the fact that Alexei Romanov is a vampire, but have more more feelings about him this time around. Surprised I didn’t write more about how evil, sick, and twisted he is – and how sad it all it.
I didn’t find her relationship with Eric nuts this time – parts still felt a little fake, but it seemed a little more “real” this time around.
