This is the fourth book in the series. At this point Sookie has locked out Eric and Bill. Sookie is angry at both of them, and this is different from Sookie because up to this point she has been anything but really angry. When she drives home from Merlot's she finds a confused Eric wandering around half naked. She knows something is up but doesn't want to be dragged into the vampire's business as all it has caused is her in a lot of pain. But someone has wiped Eric's memory, and she knows he's not safe roaming around on his own. Her brother Jason strikes a very fruitful financial arrangement with Pam and Chow for Sookie to keep an eye on Eric until the Witches who have cursed him can undo the curse. Then to add to matters Jason Stackhouse goes missing. What is a girl to do?
I really enjoyed this book as it showed a very angry and moody side to Sookie. What we have known about Sookie Stackhouse is definitely changed in this book. She's mad with good reason. For the first time Sookie is alone without Bill attached to her. And I think it helps people who read the series get to know Sookie better. She's not the bubbly Sookie that we have seen up to this point. An overall great read.
Alot happens to Jason which is new, as in my opinion Jason has always been a kind of eye candy to the story. You never knew too much about him, other than the tomcat flirt that he is, but here he has his own demons to deal with. I thoroughly enjoy what Charlaine Harris offers us with this story line. I am going to be hopefully doing a review on Dead as a Doornail this week as well.
