New in the #1 New York Times bestselling Sookie Stackhouse series-the basis for HBO(r)'s True Blood!
With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover Eric Northman and his "child" Pam are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot-which is much more complicated than she knows...
The question of power--who has it and who wants it--is always bubbling beneath the surface in Charlaine Harris's addictive novels starring the beguiling Sookie Stackhouse. Often Sookie gets caught in the middle of someone else's power play, and usually the alliances in Bon Temps, Louisiana, divide along human and non-human lines. So when the bar where Sookie works gets bombed, everyone suspects that responsibility lies with someone who is not ok with the fact that the owner, Sam Merlotte, is a shifter. Meanwhile, Sookie's love interest, the vampire Eric Northman, is plotting his own insurrection, against his master. Needless to say, things quickly get messy--but Harris's legions of fans wouldn't want it any other way
