In response to the successful coming of the vampires, the weres decide it is time for them to make their grand entry to society. Their grand unveiling seems to be accepted at first but several road bumps are thrown in for reading interest.

While I suppose the Were’s announcement is the basis for this book, it really didn’t factor in like I thought it could. Sam’s family reacts unpredictable, but that didn’t advance the story much. Jason’s slut of a wife is murdered in an apparent retaliation act towards the Weres, but the reality is not at all what it seemed. Sookie becomes the target of a fairy war and is running for her life throughout much of the book. Many of those close to Sookie get badly hurt, which seems to be a side effect of knowing her. Oh yea and lest we forget, Sookie is now married to Eric, but perhaps is she starting to see Bill in a new light.

I really liked Quinn so I was disappointed that he only made a brief appearance in the book. I assume that was to write him out of the future.

Overall I was happy with the story, but I thought it lacked something I could not put my finger on. I will be awaiting to see how Sookie handles her “marriage” in the future.

Grade: B

Cover: Same as the previous. Shows a hint of the men featuring in Sookie’s life. I am glad they didn’t move to a “Trueblood” cover. I hate when they use movies/tv characters on covers. It just screws with my vision of the characters.
