Review Source: Ace Books

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 ..

The third installment in the True Blood novels was both good and bad for me. I had conflicting moments where I wanted more for Sookie, more for herself. She’s left in the dark concerning a secret project where Bill needs to travel for work, or so he claims.

Of course this doesn’t turn out to be the case, but this poor woman does more than we think capable (vamp blood probably helped a lot for those moments) to save bill from certain death. At the hands of the vampire King no less, what a shocker!

Sookie shuffles off to find what's happened to Bill. All the while Eric whispers horrible possibilities to her, while her eyes can’t help roam over Alcide beautifully filled out Were body. From run in’s with his recent ex at Club dead, she picks out clues from the super underground hangout.

Is Bill worth all the trouble she faces? At this point, it doesn’t look like it. I’m still on team Eric, but for many of my own reasons. There are a few more romantic moments shared between Eric and Sookie, and it does make me wonder why she doesn’t say more on the subject, is it wanted or not? What about all the hopeful glances to Alcide?? Kick Bill to the curb, if nothing else rescind his invitation. I won’t give spoilers so I’m having to bite my own tongue here.
