Book Review-Dead And Gone by Charlaine Harris

The shifter community 'comes out' on live TV and in Sam's bar to Arlene's disgust and she quits her job, while Sam's stepdad shoots his mother. Niall is going to war with his fae rivals, Eric tricks Sookie into 'marrying' him, the FBI are interested in her gift and there is tragedy for both Sookie and Jason.

Sookie is nervous that the government have tracked her down after her mind-reading at the disaster site. But her mind is on other things when the pregnant Crystal is found crucified outside Sam's bar. She is also upset at Arlene's attitude to her, and is mad at being tricked by Eric for her 'protection'. She's having a pretty tough time right now!

The good things in her life are her new relationship with Eric (yea!) and her new family in young Hunter, Hadley's son. She is slowly getting used to having Niall around, and her cousin Claude and Claudine. Amelia is getting lucky in love with Sookie's were bodyguard Tray.

But things take a grim turn (of course). It was Jason's were friend Mel who murdered Crystal out of jealousy as he loved Jason. Arlene tries to set up Sookie as the victim of a copycat crucifixion but the police are there in time to arrest her and the Fellowship. Then the faery war starts and the casualties include a kidnapped and tortured Sookie, Tray and Claudine who are killed (NOOOO! I liked Claudine!), and Bill is seriously injured. Poor Claudine was one of my favourites and I cried when she was killed.

This book was back to the best things about the series-the characters that we love being in mortal danger. There is tension, fight scenes, death, love, friendships and friction. Everything a Sookie book should have!
