Plot SummaryEdit

Sookie Stackhouse has finally settled into a relationship with the Viking vampire Eric, and her errant brother Jason seems to have his life in order, too. But all the other people in Sookie’s life – Eric himself, her former lover Bill, her friend and boss Sam – are having family problems. Eric’s maker shows up with Eric’s ‘brother’ in tow and the ailing Bill can only be healed by a blood sibling. The furor raised by the coming out of the two-natured has yet to settle; some people are just not ready to sit down to dinner with a man who turns into a dog. And Sookie herself is still recovering from her last ordeal. She’s definitely improving, physically and mentally, but she’s always going to have some dark moments now. The werewolves tell her that there have been strange and ominous passers-by in the Stackhouse woods which are not exactly human. This book explores the family connections of all the main characters including Sookie, Jason, Eric, Bill and even Sam. Sookie especially becomes familiar with her faerie relatives even though most of them are out of reach while Eric and Bill meet their vampire siblings.
