Dead and Gone

Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris
Urban Fantasy
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."
