The Dallas vampires approach Eric Northman to ask them to find one of their missing vampires. He sends Bill and Sookie . Their investigation bring them into contact with fantical church folks, who hate vampires. These fanatics have an old vampire helping them to kill capture other vampires (Godfrey). Sookie is betrayed and captured by these fanatics. Fortunately the rogue vampire (Godfrey) comes to her rescue and also werewolves help her as she tried to escape from the church.
There is a little back story about Eric, however, there is no connection in the book between him and Godfrey.. Also three way relationship develops between Sooke, Bill and Eric as the two vampires vie for her affections. A Meanard has also come to Bon Temp looking for tribute from Eric. This section of the storyline is quite small and mostly touched near the end of the book.
I've read a little bit about Season 2 of True Blood and it appears there are a lot of differences between this book and the TV series.
I did feel there were a few missed opportunities. More back story about Eric and Bill could of been included. The Godrey character is hardly touched on in this book either. However, I enjoy the 3 way relationship development between Bill, Sookie and Eric.
Rating - 2.5/5
