In this the 9th addition to the Sookie Stackhouse series, Dead and Gone, by Charlaine Harris, it’s the turn of the weres and shifters to follow the lead of the undead and reveal their existence to the ordinary world. Sookie Stackhouse already knows about them, of course – her brother turns into a panther at the full moon, she’s friend to the local Waere pack and Sam, her boss at Merlotte’s bar, is a shifter. At first the great Were revelation seems to go well – then the horribly mutilated body of a were-panther is found outside Merlotte’s. Though Sookie never cared that much for the victim, no one deserves such a horrible death, so she agrees to use her telepathic talent to track down the murderer. But what Sookie doesn’t realize is that there is a far greater danger than this killer threatening Bon Temps: a race of unhuman beings, older, more powerful and far more secretive than the vampires or the werewolves is preparing for war. And even with all this going on she manages to cling to something close to sanity! How is truly by the skin of her teeth! Again Charlaine Harris has blessed us with another fantastic addition to the Sookie Stackhouse series. I have to rate Dead and Gone, 7.5/10.
