collageCharlaine Harris has announced the title of her 10th book in the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series entitled “Dead In The Family” which is set to be released May 2010Charlaine wrote on her blog that the concept for Dead In The Family was originally different from the book that she ended up writing.  She states that at first she thought that her 10th book would be very episodic, however it turned out to have a very unifying theme and “to have a crazy night of resolution.”

The Amazon UK site has posted a summary of the tenth Sookie Stackhouse novel, Dead in the Family, but as to whether or not it is correct it may be too early to say   The states the following synopsis:

Sookie Stackhouse has finally settled into a relationship with the Viking vampire Eric, and her errant brother Jason seems to have his life in order too. But all the other people in Sookie‘s life –Eric himself, her former lover Bill, her friend and boss Sam-are having family problems. Eric‘s maker shows up with Eric‘s ‘brother’ in tow, the ailing Bill can only be healed by a blood sibling, and Sam‘s brother’s marriage is about to take place…or will it? The furor raised by the coming out of the two-natured has yet to settle; some people are just not ready to sit down to dinner with a man who turns into a dog. And Sookie herself is still recovering from her last ordeal. She’s definitely improving, physically and mentally, but she’s always going to have some dark moments to show. The werewolves tell her that there have been strange and ominous passersby in the Stackhouse woods; now Sookie is about to come face-to-face with one of ther distant relatives.
