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

This book definitely set the standard for how awesome this series is getting! This book starts off with Sookie being summoned to a Summit for the Vampires where she has to be at the queens side to help prove her innocence. This book is jammed packed with so much action that I could not wait to read more and more, and to me thats how a book ought to be! I also thought the character development got stronger with the characters especially Sookie and her roommate Amelia (who I am liking more and more!)

Also this book definitly got on my good side mainly because there was more and more Eric in it (and we all know how much I love him!!!). This plot was a lot better than the previous book like I said I could not stop reading. It had me on the edge of my seat the entire time =) This was the most action packed book so far in the series and I think all you Vamp fans out there will be real pleased with the result! I know I was =P
