Dead in the Family

Sookie Stackhouse Series : Book 10

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

After enduring torture and the loss of loved ones during the brief but deadly Fae War, Sookie Stackhouse is hurt and she's mad. Just about the only bright spot in her life is the love she thinks she feels for vampire Eric Northman. But he's under scrutiny by the new vampire king.

And as the political implications of the shifters' coming-out are beginning to be felt, Sookie's connection to one particular Were draws her into the dangerous debate.

Also, though the doors to Faery have been closed, there are still some fae on the human side, and one of them is angry at Sookie... very, very angry...

    4.5 stars

    Dead in the Family is the tenth full-length novel in the Sookie Stackhouse series by popular American author, Charlaine Harris. As Sookie recovers from torture suffered during the fae conflict, she learns of a bequest left her in a fairy will. She also learns the magnitude of her great grandfather's influence when the FBI call off their enquiry. After reluctantly seeing off her houseguest, Amelia, Sookie is puzzled when her newly-discovered cousin wants to share her house, citing loneliness, but kindness overpowers scepticism, and she agrees.

    Sookie consents to look after (and counsel) her telepathic young nephew, Hunter, for an overnight stay. But a were and a vampire tracker alert Sookie to the presence of unknown fairies in the woods out back of her house, as well as a couple of buried corpses. Vampire Bill is still suffering silver poisoning; some less-than-welcome family members come calling on Eric; and Sookie discovers a government spy in their midst. As usual, attempts are made on Sookie's life; someone tries to frame her for a murder; and she grudgingly takes on the temporary role of shaman for Alcide's pack.

    There's a bit of vampire politics, a bit of were activism, a protest rally, and some vampire spies. A spell is broken by a kiss and, by the end, there are quite a few deaths. The highlight of this instalment is Hunter's interaction with Sookie. Jason finally proves he is more than a pretty face, and family turns out to be important for all the main characters in this aptly titled dose of Sookie.

    Charlaine Harris

    Charlaine Harris has been a published novelist for over twenty-five years. A native of the Mississippi Delta, she grew up in the middle of a cotton field. Now she lives in southern Arkansas with her husband, her three children, three dogs, and a duck. The duck stays outside.

    Though her early output consisted largely of ghost stories, by the time she hit college (Rhodes, in Memphis) Charlaine was writing poetry and plays. After holding down some low-level jobs, she had the opportunity to stay home and write, and the resulting two stand-alones were published by Houghton Mifflin. After a child-producing sabbatical, Charlaine latched on to the trend of writing mystery series, and soon had her own traditional books about a Georgia librarian, Aurora Teagarden. Her first Teagarden, Real Murders, garnered an Agatha nomination.

    Soon Charlaine was looking for another challenge, and the result was the much darker Lily Bard series. The books, set in Shakespeare, Arkansas, feature a heroine who has survived a terrible attack and is learning to live with its consequences.

    When Charlaine began to realize that neither of those series was ever going to set the literary world on fire, she regrouped and decided to write the book she’d always wanted to write. Not a traditional mystery, nor yet pure science fiction or romance, Dead Until Dark broke genre boundaries to appeal to a wide audience of people who just enjoy a good adventure. Each subsequent book about Sookie Stackhouse, telepathic Louisiana barmaid and friend to vampires, werewolves, and various other odd creatures, has drawn more readers. The southern vampire books are published in Japan, Great Britain, Greece, Germany, Thailand, Spain, France, and Russia.

    In addition to Sookie, Charlaine has another heroine with a strange ability. Harper Connelly, lightning-struck and strange, can find corpses . . . and that’s how she makes her living.

    In addition to her work as a writer, Charlaine is the past senior warden of St. James Episcopal Church, a board member of Mystery Writers of America, a past board member of Sisters in Crime, a member of the American Crime Writers League, and past president of the Arkansas Mystery Writers Alliance. She spends her “spare” time reading, watching her daughter play sports, travelling, and going to the movies.
