Dead and Gone (Sookie Stackhouse / Southern Vampire Series #9)
by Charlaine Harris

For Sookie Stackhouse, the day to day activities of the vampire and were communities in and around Bon Temps, Louisiana, are of vital interest, She’s blood-bound to the leader of the vamps, a friend to the local were pack, works for a man who is shifter, and has a brother who is a were-panther…

But for most of the humans in Bon Temps, the vamps are mysterious seductive creatures-and they don’t even know about the weres.

Until now. The weres and shifters have finally decided to follow the lead of the undead and reveal their existence to the ordinary world.

At first it seems to go well. Then the mutilated body of a were-panther is found in the parking lot of the bar where Sookie works. The victim is someone she knows, so she feels compelled to discover who-human or otherwise-did the deed.

But what she doesn’t realize is that there is a far greater danger than the killer threatening Bon Temps. A race of unhuman beings–older, more powerful and far more secretive than vampires or werewolves– is preparing for war. And Sookie will find herself an all-too human pawn in their battle…

    I just started reading the series two weeks ago and flew through the first eight. The writeing style flows easily and I am really excited about the series the only proble I have now is waiting for book 11. What will I do for two months?

    But it is torturing me that I have to wait another 6 months before I can read the last book … TBH I still think Harris may have some more twists up her sleeves and I am not entirely sure STILL who Sookie will end up with…

  • Dawn

    I absolutely cannot wait for book 9 to come out. I wish it was May the twists and turns going on in my head about what Sookie’s next “adventure” could be is killing me. Who does she end up with? I’m so excited to see what CH has done with Sookie and the others.
