Except for Sookie Stackhouse, folks in Bon Temps, Louisiana, know little about vamps-and nothing about weres. Until now.
The weres and shifters have finally decided to reveal their existence to the ordinary world. At first all goes well. Then the mutilated body of a were-panther is found near the bar where Sookie works-and she feels compelled to discover who, human or otherwise, did it.

This book was one big fat yawn. I could care less about the fairies. They bore me to tears. I read this series for two things: Sookie, and the vampires. And the only saving grace with this book was Eric. And the fact that I ended up liking one of the characters I hadn't previously liked when he near...
As far as the series goes, this one feels like filler. It is a fun read but the characters do not seem to grow or change in any way nor are there any new revelations about the supernatural world Harris has created. It is simply another day in the oh-so-crazy life of Sookie Stackhouse.
