The new King of Louisiana has unexpectedly shown up in Louisiana for a visit. His reasons are simple. He wants to know what happened to his right-hand man, Victor. The one he left in charge of Louisiana so he could continue running Las Vegas. If that’s not bad enough, a were winds up dead right outside Eric’s house during a party. With everything hitting the fan, Sookie finds that she just can’t depend on Eric to uncover the answers. She decides to team up with BIll so they can figure out what’s going on and clear Eric’s name.
First comes murder:
This book is where we kind of start seeing the fall of Eric and Sookie. To be honest, I never really liked them as a couple anyway. I mean they were great friends. He supported her when she needed it and vise versa. They just didn’t make a good couple in my opinion. It’s kind of obvious in this book that the series is winding down to a close. I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing. I’ve really loved reading this series. However, I do realize that not all stories can be told forever. Everything comes to an end eventually.
Then comes betrayal:
This book was narrated by Johanna Parker. The entire series has been narrated by her. She’s done a really fantastic job. I feel like if they ever do an animated version of this series, they should hire her to voice act as Sookie. I have paired Sookie’s personality with her so much since listening to this series. I also love the authentic southern vibes I get from her narration. It makes me feel at home.
Let’s not forget the secret plot:
While I can’t really say this is one of my favorites of the series, I really did enjoy the book. I am getting very sad to see this series go, but I’m glad that I finally got the chance to get around to reading them. I’m also more than aware that my stubborn self will most likely reread them all again in the future. Maybe even without the audiobook. Who knows? It’s one of my favorite series of all time.
And most important. THE TWISTS!
