Book synopsis from goodreads

With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. But Sookie suspects otherwise and she and Sam work together to uncover the culprit - and the twisted motive for the attack. But her attention is divided. Though she can't 'read' vampires, Sookie knows her lover Eric Northman and his 'child' Pam well - and she realises that they are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, she is drawn into the plot -which is much more complicated than she knows. Caught up in the politics of the vampire world, Sookie will learn that she is as much of a pawn as any ordinary human - and that there is a new Queen on the board

My thoughts *HAS SPOILERS*

You know when you have been reading a book and also following the tv series that's based on this, you are wasted on the story line from the very beginning. Well, I guess that's me when it comes to the Southern Vampire Mysteries.

I'll stick with series till the end *I know, I know I am a complete sap* After the last book 'Dead In The Family' I had actually given up on the series but Charlaine Harris was able to restore my faith on these books again.

While Sookie was very darker ans emoestic in the last book, she was back to her own self in this one but a little bit matured. I know completely shocking.

This book had some major revelations on Sookie's love life (with Eric Northman duh!). Sookie finally realizes her TRUE feelings for Eric. YAYYY!

Eric and Pam's relation on maker and child takes up some bumps on the roads and I have my fingers crossed that it doesn't get worse and they are able to sort out their differences. 

Even though Eric's maker is dead (thank you Sookie) he still hasn't left Eric in peace. Yes, it comes back to haunt both Eric and Sookie, which I have a feeling the next book will be about. 

Sam, I always had mixture of feelings towards this man, and by the time I was finished reading chapter two I was pretty much o.O by his incest suggestions for Sookie. WTF!

Other than the 'interesting' use of words by Miss Harris, this book was quite good.

None of The Southern Vampire Mysteries book covers never make sense to me!

Recommended to all who likes True Blood and Southern Vampire Mysteries.

I give thiiiiis
