After enduring torture and the loss of loved ones during the brief but deadly Fae War, Sookie Stackhouse is hurt and she's mad. Just about the only bright spot in her life is the love she thinks she feels for vampire Eric Northman. But he's under scrutiny by the new vampire king. And as the political implications of the shifters' coming-out are beginning to be felt, Sookie's connection to one particular Were draws her into the dangerous debate. Also, though the doors to Faery have been closed, there are still some fae on the human side-and one of them is angry at Sookie...very, very angry...

I enjoy so much with the sagas and this is not an exception. I am talking now about the tenth book of Southern Vampire Series writen by Charlaine Harris. The author did not abandon her writen way or the mystery and intrigue that our dear main character Sookie is used to live.

If you did not read the previous book ("Dead and gone") maybe my review suppose the discover about some not desired spoiler so if you want to read the rest of the post you are welcome!

New characters, character who have left us and anothers who have more importance show up during the development of the story. We are in Bon Temps after the Fae War where a wound Sookie begins to recover from her abduction and injuries. Also she needs to heal the pity about the loss of her fairy godmother Claudine.

Her life goes on and besides the fact about her happiness playing hide-and-seek she enjoys with her relationship with her beloved vampire Eric while she says goodbye to her witch housemate (and one of my favorite characters) Amelia.

In this new book we are no facing a war or a bomb or a werewolf club where you can die anytime but the action is in the background and we have lots of different stories as a new supernatural housemate for Sookie, a day of babysitting, a meeting with the creator of one vampire and the sister of another and the world is turning against the two-natured.

From my point of view I think the book has been fantastic since we found many interesting things besides the desire of death to several members from Sookie. Also I have a feeling that the writer has wanted to introduce some information about Victor because this will be an important character in the next book and I think we will find more action in Dead Reckoning.

In summary, a new release in which she explains much about the lives of some of the characters in the series as well as vampires and two-natured in general. Short on action but with a background story of intrigue as well as several deaths that we cannot miss in a vampire book like this.

If someone has reached the eighth book (worst for me) I encourage not to abandon Sookie!Endure until next delivery because it was awesome ninth book and this one leaves the door open to something big.

Very good!
