Sookie Stackhouse would really like time to get over being betrayed by Bill, her long-time vampire lover, and get use to her new relationship with sexy shapeshifter Quinn—but instead, she finds herself attending a vampire summit, the destination of choose for every undead power player around. She’s being used as a sort-of human Geiger counter for Sophie-Anne Leclerq, vampire queen of Louisiana.
But Sophie-Anne’s power base has been severely weakened by Hurricane Katina, and she’s to be put on trial for murdering her king. Sookie knows the queen is innocent, but others have their doubts. And there are some vamps who would like to finish what nature started. With secret alliances and backroom deals the order of the day—and night—Sookie must decide which side she’ll stand with, and quickly, for her choice may mean the difference between survival and all-out catastrophe...
This is the book in the series that let my attention wear...
Really, it wasn’t that it isn’t good. It’s interesting, and it’s important for the rest of the story, the shit that’s happened and the shit that’s going to come, but....
The Quinn element is all about the fact that they never get to see each other, which sucks and all, because I like Quinn. We also get to meet his sister and the wolf that turned vampire is back in this story, I think mostly because he’s still attacked to the work but were’s don’t like vampires, even if were once one of their own.
This is about the trial for the Queen about the king death, this one is the interesting part, it’s the reason that Sookie and Eric get closer, in the blood exchange type of way and why a particular vampire, who is there later in the series, is annoyed at them.
Sookie helps out at the trail, she also helps when a bomb goes off, and then in the aftermath which causes her more headaches than she really wanted, but that’s neither here nor there because this book doesn’t really go into the....(let’s just drop this line of talk).
I liked the story line, I liked the book, to me, it was a point where the series plot seemed to go nowhere when it was moving forward and that just bored me. Mostly because I’m a much faster pace person and I’m not good with, especially when so much happens in the book.
Saying this, though, the series bounces back in the last couple, or maybe that’s more because I know the series is meant to end soon, and then I get to go one the show. Can’t wait!!
