Sookie and Bill are recovering from the fairy war, but the process is slow. Eric is dealing with the political issues that come with learning the ropes in a new regime. Trouble is brewing for the shapeshifters as the government decides how to handle them. Rogue fairies are still on the loose, and Eric's maker appears. Sookie and Eric are both in danger, but for different reasons.
This novel was better than the last few, but I'm wondering if Sookie and Eric will stick together or if that is just another temporary relationship. I guess only time will tell.
