Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris
The Weres have finally come out. Behind Merlotte's Bar where Sookie Stackhouse works a young were-panther is found crucified. The victim is Jason's, Sookie's brother, pregnant ex. Sookie wants to find how who is responsible and prove it wasn't Jason.
The fairies are having a civil war because of Sookie. Niall, her Fae grandfather may just get Sookie killed. The reader finds out a bit more about the fae world and Sookie and her relationship to the fairies.
Also former friend, Arlene turned Vamp and Supe hater has a hatred for Sookie and her supe boyfriends. Arlene wouldn't do something to Sookie, or would she?
This book seemed to be a bit 'darker' than the previous in the series. There was also a lot more violence. It would be nice to see Sookie find some peace but then that would not be as interesting to read about.
First Line: "Caucasian vampires should never wear white, the Television announcer intoned."
