Now I want to know where this new story line will go. Back I go to the library to find the next book. (less)

We live in an Alternate universe
Mia Snow is a strong aggressive member of A.I.R. who police the alien and vampire communities. She sees visions that always come true
She meets her match in Kyrin (an alien) who has his own agenda. (view spoiler)[ It becomes clear that there is more to Mia when she finds out that she is a hybrid of human father and alien mother. Her mother Allanna, is the serial killer that everyone is hunting …she has been killing dark haired women and men for decades.
Kyrin is poisoned by Alanna and Mia forces the hospital to transfuse him with human blood to save his life… How is that going to affect him? Will he still be able to heal as quickly as before? Kyrin gave Dallas his blood to save his life …Is that going to change him?? (hide spoiler)] What other things are in store for Mia?? Did her mother really die? Kyrin survived, maybe she could too.. Why was Mia’s dead brother Dare given a shocking short cameo?? What was the purpose? Damnit!! I am going to have find other books in this series….

Fae are being murdered and then in the end we are supposed to believe that a tiny demifey called Bittersweet was responsible for everything??? Not withstanding that she had a human boyfriend who probably helped pose the dead bodies... it is pretty much spelled out that she would get these urges and would lose control.... all because ahe wanted to bigger?
Rhys has a his own place in a piece of earth shattering sex on the beach then it is only mentioned in two sentences. Does this mean he is king of his own little slithen? Who is going to join him? who cooks the food the current courts? there is no mention of any other fairy mounds(?) in USA
The black coach seems to like Merry and is helping her soldiers (who are healing people now) when they are trapped in a war zone (not really sure where)... she visits it in a dream... but how did the coach get there? and very conveniently she has soil on her face and Rhys puts it in a zip lock bag to be tested.(???! coz thats what you do...)
Gilda the fairy godmother had a wand that steals and stores magic!!? WT She sounds seriously deranged but the guy who made them ends up dead so that is the end of that story line... does it mean that Gilda is not very powerful without her stealing magic?
Merry created a new fairy mound in one of the previous books (when Frost was sacificed) ... something about having no dogs(??!) but now will not go it(?)....because the Seelie king kidnapped her from there... then procedes to complain about providing for an ever increasing number of people who have followed her to LA ... cost of providing food and housing etc.
these books cover a week (at most) in time span so it is little wonder that she is still not showing this pregnancy yet! But does it have to mentioned in every chapter along with the knowledge that her two babies have 3 fathers each.... WE KNOW ALREADY
Her auntie is insane .... that was obvious before Cel was killed. Makes you wonder why all the people stay with her. If it is so bad change or move.... don't just suffer Of course we all remember that her uncle is insane too
And what about the puppies from Mungo and Minnie? She was supposed to drop any day .... making the whole thing an online YOUTUBE event that people would pay to watch is a bit creepy in one aspect and clever finiancing in another
OK i am done ranting now I feel much better tee hee (less)

Bill crypticly tells her to that he is going away and he will hide his computer in her house inhis hidey hole.... then he disappears
Eric sends Bubba to guard Sookie and kills a Were who tried to kidnap her... in Merlotte's
Eric arrives to tell Sookie that he believes Bill is being held by rival vampires and his sire lorena is there.... Eric asks Sookie to help find out if Bill is still alive
Eric enlists Alcide H 's help.. he is smitten by Sookie. He takes her to a bar called Club Dead (it is only for Supes and Weres) and she wears red dress and gets mauled by a Were and Debbie burns a hole in her shawl, Russell Edgington invites her back with Alcide the next night. That night A & S discover the same Were dead in their closet near the front door. His neck is broken. A & S drive the body out to the country and dump the body.
Eric visits them to find out if they have found anything - he says Bill is not found yet but they can not get into Russell's compound.
When they go back to the club, Eric comes in a disguise, and Sookie 'hears' someone with a stake attmpting to kill the Bar Owner but in the mellee she is staked. Russell asks Eric(Leif) to help her and together they are taken into Russell's compound.
Sookie is healed by vampires and Eric gives her blood to allow her strength to free Bill (whom she senses near by). She asks Eric to get her a car to get Bill out of the compound. Bubba (Elvis) finds Bill, and tells Sookie where - She finds Bill covered in silver chains and stab wounds, while she is freeing him, Lorena comes in and they fight but while Lorena is charging towards Sookie, she lifts the same stake that someone shoved in her, and kills Lorena. Sookie gets Bill into car boot and drive out of compound to unground car park at Alcide's apartment. Bill and Sookie fight after she is locked in the boot with him and he nearly kills her. Eric drives her home.. but there are Were's in my house waiting for her (to find out where their friend is ) and they beat up Sookie but is rescued by Eric and Bill who kill every one and she is so tramatised that she resinds their invitation into her house and the book ends as the front door closes.
Eric annouces he does not like having feelings. (less)

Bill is looking poorly.. and does not leave his house much
Eric is concerned about Sookie ( but also concerned about Victor ) Love Sookie's solution to that
We will have to kill Victor - tee hee she surprises Eric
Jason is geting easier to stand - for a while there he was toxic Being a panther seems to agree with him
This is families in all their glory be that good or bad...
some stories continue into the next book, some stories end. Families change and move in and out of our own lives and this is true in this book
In a way it is clever that CH was able to encorporate as many story threads as she did with the family threads sronger than others all evenly
Sookie is shaman now to the wolves .... is that going to be a good thing? It interferred with her link with Eric .. is that a good thing? Pam had some great lines - how his business was affected by his feelings for Sookie.
After Alexei fights Eric he is strange ... not like the Eric of old.. somehow defeated and overcome And Jason WOW he gets Sookie out of the Wolves den at the right moment and he drives Sookie to Eric's without a protest..and finds and helps Pam.. he GIVES BLOOD to her and she thanks him (very civilised)..
Wait a minute Has he ever given blood before?
Yet another bartender at Fangtasia is dust .. Felicia. I think she lasted a couple of books .. that a record Bobby was only just getting to be a character rather than wallpaper and then he is dead.
Eric kills Alexei with a tree branch ... nice! after Sookie does the silver chain draping swing thing... what a strange thing to keep in your bedside drawer(!!?)
Colman! say no more .. he did not like the human world and rarely ventured there but he came to kill Sookie and he kills Eric's maker and then Dermot wounds him and Eric kills him
I thought the book could have finished with Sookie and Eric togther except the way they parted was a little odd... nothing would be the same .... Eric seemed more effected by the death of his maker and brother than Bill was by the death of Lorena. Eric's first thought after 'I'm free' was of Pam And all the things he needed to do now that OCella was dead.. and then he flys away with a promise to return as soon as he can (less)
