Dead In The Family by Charlaine Harris

Read For:
Fantasy Reading Challenge

If you think your family relationships are complicated, think again: youhaven't seen anything like the ones in Bon Temps, Louisiana. SookieStackhouse is dealing with a whole host of family problems, ranging from herown kin (a non-human fairy and a telepathic second cousin) demanding a placein her life, to her lover Eric's vampire sire, an ancient being who arrives with Eric's 'brother' in tow at a most inopportune moment. And Sookie's tracking down a distant relation of her ailing neighbour (and ex), VampireBill Compton. In addition to the multitude of family issues complicating herlife, the werewolf pack of Shreveport has asked Sookie for a special favour,and since Sookie is an obliging young woman, she agrees. But this favor for the wolves has dire results for Sookie, who is still recovering from thetrauma of her abduction during the Fairy War.

My review:
It was pretty good, but not as good as most of the others in the series.I cannot pinpoint exactly "what" was missing to give the story it's usual "oomph", but it wasn't there. It was still enjoyable, as any visit into "Sookieville" is:)  3.5 stars.
