This is my favorite Sookie Stackhouse book thus far. Of course, I have many more left to read yet :). There was a ton of action in this book, which I really enjoyed! I guess I just feel as though the previous two novels dragged a bit too much for me. There are times when Sookie can get on my nerves (especially in the last two books), but I feel as though she's definitely toughened up some. I really like Eric and am eager to see how their relationship progresses.
