Sookie must travel to Mississippi to find Bill, missing after telling Sookie he was working on a project for the queen of Louisiana. To find out where he is, Sookie enters the world of the undead and shapeshifters.
The plot of this book felt a bit underwhelming. I wanted more information on the new characters, especially Alcide, and less focus on whether or not Sookie is going to have sex with *insert any male character here*. However the plot did lend itself to a very unclear vision of the future. Quite a few paths diverge from this sunny little clearing Sookie is in at the end of this book...well partially sunny with scattered clouds and a chance of rain anyway.
I am fully committed to the series now; I do very much want to find out what is going to happen. For a light, easy read, this series is quite appealing. I can pick one up and speed through it in an evening no problem.
On a side note: Sookie seems a bit of a slut. Or at least a tease. I'm still undecided on whether this is a female power/woman discovering her sexuality theme or a horn-dog-idiot-situation.
