Series: Sookie Stackhouse (Book 5)
Synopsis: Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in a little bar in a small town deep in Louisiana. She's funny and pretty and well-mannered, but she doesn't have that many close friends - mind you, that's not so surprising when you consider how few people can appreciate her abilities as a mind-reader. It's not a quality that has the guys beating down her door - well, unless they're vampires or werewolves or the like . . . but they're not just supernatural freaks, some of them are friends, even family . . . And much as Sookie might want a quiet life, when she's around, things just seem to happen . . . like someone trying to wipe out the shape-changing population, and that means Sookie's got just a month, before the next full moon, to find out who wants the shapeshifters dead, and stop the fiend.
Review: When someone starts shooting the shapeshifting population of Bon Temps, Sookie feels obliged to find out what is happening before the next full moon and shapeshifter change. What she doesn't realise is just how much trouble she's getting herself into yet again...
I have to admit, I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as the previous books, the story just didn't grip me this time for some reason. It's also starting to annoy me slightly how every single supernatural male she comes across falls madly in lust with her, it's a tad unrealistic. The story this time was really predictable, I guessed almost immediately who the shooter was, and was correct in the end. Other than the bits I disliked it was still very easy to read, like coming back to an old trusted friend. I'm hoping the story picks up a bit in the next book, as this one was a bit repetative.
