Sookie Stackhouse lives an interesting life; in the Chinese Proverb sense. Over the last couple of years her life has become hopelessly tangled in the politics of vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, and the fae. Being a telepath makes her a hot property in the high stakes wheeling and dealing of the supernatural world. She's had to walk a pretty fine line in order to maintain her independence, but inevitably, the world of the weird has entangled itself in her life. Several years ago the vampires came out of the shadows, and the world hasn't been the same since. Now the shapeshifters are planning their own debut. And nobody knows just how much the mundane world of humanity is willing to accept.

From official release/information:

From back of book: For Sookie Stackhouse, the day-to-day activities of the vampire and Were communities in and around Bon Temps, Louisiana, are of vital interest. She's blood bound to the leader of the vamps, is a friend to the local Were pack, works for a man who is a shifter, and has a brother who is a werepanther...

But for most of the humans in Bon Temps, the vamps are mysterious, seductive creatures--and they don't even know about the Weres.

Until now, the Weres and shifters have finally decided to follow the lead of the undead and reveal their existence to the ordinary world.

At first it seems to go well. Then the mutilated body of a werepanther is found in the parking lot of the bar where Sookie works. The victim is someone she knows so she feels compelled to discover who--human or otherwise--did the deed.

But what she doesn't realize is that there is a much greater danger than the killer threatening Bon Temps. A race of unhuman beings--older, more powerful, and far more secretive than vampires or werewolves--is preparing for war. And Sookie will find herself an all-too-human pawn in their battle...
