Dead and Gone: Sookie Stackhouse Novel #9 (Southern Vampire Series)by Charlaine Harris
I never tire of Sookie Stackhouse and her adventures. Dead and Gone, Charlaine Harris's ninth in this series, is great fun! Sookie faces angry fairies who are out to kidnap her in order to force her grandfather, a royal fairy, to bend to their will. But as usual, Sookie manages to surprise her enemies with her resourcefulness and grit. In the meantime, the werewolves have "come out" to the rest of the world and Sookie helps solve a gruesome murder. All in a day's work for our Sookie.
Synopses & Reviews
Now an HBO original series, True Blood, the New York Times bestselling Sookie Stackhouse series continues.
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.
But there's a far greater danger threatening Bon Temps. A race of unhuman beings — older, more powerful, and more secretive than vampires or werewolves — is preparing for war. And Sookie finds herself an all-too human pawn in their battle.
"Telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse braces herself for trouble when another group of supernatural beings goes public in her disjointed eighth adventure (after 2008's From Dead to Worse). Following the vampires' lead, the shape-shifters decide to step out of the woodwork and announce their existence to the world. While the initial reveal goes smoothly, the brutal crucifixion of a young were-panther behind the local bar makes Sookie wonder if the people of Bon Temps, La., are as tolerant as she thought. Meanwhile, the FBI is asking questions about Sookie's uncanny ability to locate survivors after an explosion, and trouble is brewing among the secretive fae. Harris tries to cram too much into a single story, and even die-hard fans of Sookie's adventures in print and on HBO's True Blood will complain about the plot gaps." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Three strong story lines lead to an intensely gripping finale. The ninth book in the Sookie Stackhouse series is one of the best." Library Journal (starred review)
"Darker and more ominous than earlier entries in the series, Harris' latest raises the stakes (pun intended) for lovable heroine Sookie and comes up a winner....[A] gripping installment." Booklist
Except for Sookie Stackhouse, folks in Bon Temps, Louisiana, knew little about vamps-and nothing about Weres. Until now. The Weres and shifters have finally revealed their existence to the ordinary world, and the backlash may have claimed the life of someone Sookie knew. But her determination to find out who is responsible for the murder is put aside in the face of a far greater danger. A race of unhuman beings- older, more powerful, and more secretive than vampires or werewolves-is preparing for war. And Sookie will find herself an all-toohuman pawn in their battle...
