Books are arriving thick and fast at present and the current “just arrived” on my book table is Charlaine Harris’ Dead Reckoning, the latest in her Sookie Stackhouse series—more paranormal fun with Sookie, Eric, Bill, and the rest of the living, dead, and shapeshifting community of Bon Temps. Here’s the back cover blurb:
“There’s a reckoning on the way … and Sookie has a knack for being in trouble’s way, not least when she witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte’s, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is known to be two-natured, suspicion immediately falls on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but before she can investigate something else — something even more dangerous — comes up.
Sookie’s lover Eric Northman and his ‘child’ Pam are plotting something in secret. Whatever it is, they seem determined to keep Sookie out of it, almost as determined as Sookie is to find out what’s going on. She can’t sit on the sidelines when both her work and her love life under threat — but as she’s gradually drawn into their plans Sookie finds the situation is deadlier than she could ever have imagined.”
So what’s new on your book table? Or is there a book that you’re hoping to read soon but haven’t got to yet?
