I was eagerly waiting for this latest "Sookie" offering from Charlaine, especially as (I felt) her last book fell a little short of the previous books in the series. This was definitely better than the last book (Dead in the Family) however I still don't feel it was off the same level as earlier books.
This was just O.K, it did give you more insight into lots of things, including where Sookie gained her telepathic powers from, and also lots more info on the world of the fae (which was really interesting) however, It felt a little slow to get going to me, and I felt the book could have been a little longer. Still, it does leave me wanting to read to the next book just as much as I always have.
I would recomend to anyone new to the series, to read the series in order from the start to fully appreciate the overall story, If you haven't read Charlaine's "Sookie" series before, it's great, and one of my all time favourites!! (Highly reccomended).
