Summary Provided by Goodreads:With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. But Sookie suspects otherwise and she and Sam work together to uncover the culprit - and the twisted motive for the attack. But her attention is divided. Though she can't 'read' vampires, Sookie knows her lover Eric Northman and his 'child' Pam well - and she realizes that they are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, she is drawn into the plot -which is much more complicated than she knows. Caught up in the politics of the vampire world, Sookie will learn that she is as much of a pawn as any ordinary human - and that there is a new Queen on the board . . .
Dead Reckoning is the 11th book in the Sookie Stackhouse series and Charlaine Harris has yet to lose her touch. This book has less action then the other books, but it sets up a storyline that will leave readers very nervous for Sookie and Eric. We learn a lot more about the world of the Fey but there is still a lot more we don’t know because its obvious Sookie’s Cousin Claude and Great Uncle Dermot are still hiding a lot. We also learn more about Sookie’s past and why she can read minds. I thought that was very interesting and I’m glad that big secret was finally revealed.
Eric and Pam are going through a lot in this book, I just wanted to be able to hug both of them and tell them it would be ok, of course if I did that, they would drain all of my blood, so it might not be the best idea. Bill also played a much bigger role in Dead Reckoning then he has in a while, and it was nice to see him and Sookie working together and getting into some, um, compromising positions together. Alcide’s back as well and naked (!) and Sookie has the best one-liners! I really love every single character in this series, even the bad ones!
Overall, a great addition to the Sookie Stackhouse series, I can’t wait to see what Harris has in store for us next and the way this one ended, I can only imagine what’s going to happen!
