"She’s not out to get me? Your life was not right when you were actually surprised that someone didn’t want to kill you.

Sookie is back in her final adventure! Recovering from bringing Sam back to life, she takes time off to think. Eric is remote as she chose to use the fairy wish granter for Sam, instead of for his benefit. He also has an obligation to marry the Queen of Kansas as his maker arranged. A new vampire has now shown up and after her great-grandfather and cousin returned to the realm of the fairies Sookie is lonely. Jason is planning his marriage, Tara is driving a minivan, and Sookie's half-demon godfather has shown up with two witches, a demon, and a telepath. He has learnt several things that make him fear for her safety. Arlene has been released from prison on bail for trying to give Sookie to the Fellowship of the Sun to be crucified. The men that arranged for her bail have only asked for her to do two things; ask for her job back at Merlotte’s and a scarf of Sookie’s. Meanwhile someone has sold their soul to the devil and decided Sookie is responsible for the deal going sour. She must pay........... A fun, easy read for Sookie fans with has a busy plot that ties up loose ends while hinting at new beginnings. You don’t need to have read the other books in the series to pick up what is going on but it’s such an addictive world you should. You learn who to trust, some people die, and who Sookie chooses to love.

*the books bear no relation to the plot of True Blood

**but feel free to imagine Eric Northman as Alexander Skaarsgard
