Wasn't hard to pick up where I left off many years ago. Harris does a great job of refreshing the readers memory of what has happened in the previous books. This is Book 7 in the series and as usual focuses on Sookie. This time she is summoned to New Orleans to clean out her cousin's apartment and of course gets caught up in solving a murder, and witnessing a new one. She does get a new love interest out of it all. A Were-Tiger named Quinn.
Fun, quick read, as usual. Perfect book for the readathon and for RIPX
Book 8 of the series begins a few months after Hurricane Katrina. Louisiana is still in recovery and the Queen is feeling the brunt of it as well. She lost vampires to the storm and her headquarters and she is also going to trial for the killing of her husband. Sookie travels with the Louisiana delegation of Vamps to Rhodes, up North, for their annual summit and will also be the sole witness in Sophie-Anne's Trial.
As you can imagine, it doesn't go very smoothly. This book was just okay for me.
