This is the fifth book in the southern vampire series, and once again the people of Bon Temps are being attacked, only this time it's shifters being shot at.
Funnily enough however, this storyline seems to be almost ignored most of the time, instead taking a backseat to Sookie's own problems, the main one of which seems to once again be 'which suitor should I consider dating?', with Sookie being chased this time by Bill, Eric, Sam, Alcide, and now Calvin too.
There are another couple of notable events - Jason's turning into a were-panther for the first time, Sookie's house being the victim of an arson attempt, a funeral, and a competition for the new Werewolf pack leader, but to be honest the book just seems to be a tale of "what's happening to Sookie this week?" rather than to have a definite story line like the previous books, which is actually a little disappointing.
Overall, the book is an okay read as part of the series, but as for an actual storyline, it's a little lacking.
