Summary : Things between cocktail waitress Sookie and her vampire boyfriend Bill seem to be going excellently (apart from the small matter of him being undead) until he leaves town for a while. A long while. Bill's sinister boss Eric has an idea of where to find him, whisking her off to Jackson, Mississippi to mingle with the under-underworld at Club Dead. When she finally catches up with the errant vampire, he is in big trouble and caught in an act of serious betrayal. This raises serious doubts as to whether she should save him or start sharpening a few stakes of her own ...
My Opinion: In the third installment of the well known Sookie Stackhouse series, Charlaine Harris' explores, with the reader, betrayal. She does so beautifully.
I feel like I have to say, again, that Harris' writing is fun, fast-paced and dark.
When I read that Bill had betrayed Sookie, I wanted to sharpen my stakes and go kill him. Once I'd calmed down, I continued reading the book. I felt really bad for Sookie.
Anyone who loves Young Adult Paranormal Romance should enjoy this series.
I currently have the fourth book of the series, and will probably read it next.
