The #1 New York Times bestselling Sookie Stackhouse series- the basis for HBO(r)'s True Blood-continues!

After enduring torture and the loss of loved ones during the brief but deadly Faery War, Sookie Stackhouse is hurt and she's angry. Just about the only bright spot in her life is the love she thinks she feels for vampire Eric Northman. But he's under scrutiny by the new Vampire King because of their relationship. And as the political implications of the Shifters coming out are beginning to be felt, Sookie's connection to the Shreveport pack draws her into the debate. Worst of all, though the door to Faery has been closed, there are still some Fae on the human side-and one of them is angry at Sookie. Very, very angry...

Annotation:
Sookie Stackhouse and her motley crew of friends, trouble-makers, and loved ones--vampires and werewolves included--return in Charlaine Harris's 10th installment in her wildly popular series. The Faery War (DEAD AND GONE) left Sookie's allied forces depleted, so when a fairy cousin turns up needing shelter, the generous-to-a-fault Sookie decides to let him crash for a while. Sookie and her fairy relatives aren't the only ones feeling the aftershocks of the recent violent events: the Werewolves in nearby Shreveport are skittish, and Eric Northman, Sookie's vampire boyfriend, is feeling the chilling judgment of his kind for his involvement with a non-vamp. Plus the Shifters have gone public, opening up whole new arenas for trouble, and then there are those few persistent Fae that want revenge. Sookie's certainly got her hands full, but Harris juggles the subplots and develops her ever-growing cast of characters with twists and turns that are certain to entertain her legions of fans.Sookie Stackhouse and her motley crew of friends, trouble-makers, and loved ones--vampires and werewolves included--return in Charlaine Harris's 10th installment in her wildly popular series.

Author Bio
Charlaine Harris
Charlaine Harris is that rare example of a novelist who owes a large portion of her fan base to television. Harris is a remarkably prolific writer who was first published in 1981, but her popularity increased exponentially in 2008 when HBO launched its series TRUE BLOOD, based on her series of mysteries starring a telepathic waitress named Sookie Stackhouse. Harris was born (in 1951) and raised in Tunica, Mississippi, a former cotton town which was later revitalized by casino river boats. She has lived in the south her whole life, in various states and cities, including attending Rhodes College in Memphis, where she saw several of her one-act plays produced. Following an unsuccessful first marriage, Harris was in a rut, bouncing between dead-end jobs, when she met the man who would become her second husband. As a wedding gift, he gave her an electric typewriter and told her to become a full-time writer, a magnanimous gesture which turned out to be a very fruitful decision. Harris had no problem getting her first novel published, and she has not looked back ever since, churning out an average of one book per year since 1981. She has helmed no less than three popular ongoing series--a set of classic whodunits starring a Georgia librarian named Aurora Teagarden; a series of darker mysteries taking place in Shakespeare, Arkansas, featuring a psychologically damaged cleaning lady named Lily Bard; and, of course, the enormously popular "Southern Vampire Mysteries," wherein Sookie Stackhouse negotiates a world inhabited by vampires, werewolves, changelings, and other creatures of the night. Harris lives in Arkansas with her husband and three children.
