Dead Reckoning, by Charlaine Harris
Synopsis: With her knack for being in trouble’s way, Sookie Stackhouse 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.
Caught up once again in the politics of the vampire world, Sookie will learn that she is as much of a pawn as any ordinary human—and that there is a new queen on the board….
Thoughts: This is the eleventh book in the series, and I'm still finding them very entertaining. I've had to learn to view the books and the True Blood television series as two very different entities, however. Otherwise, I drive myself crazy with all the inconsistencies between the two. I'm still hoping that Sam and Sookie will end up together in the end!
