Small-town cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse has had more than her share of experience with the supernatural—but now it’s really hitting close to home. When Sookie sees her brother Jason’s eyes start to change, she knows he’s about to turn into a were-panther for the first time—a transformation he embraces more readily than most shapeshifters she knows. But her concern becomes cold fear when a sniper sets his deadly sights on the local changeling population, and Jason’s new panther brethren suspect he may be the shooter. Now, Sookie has until the next full moon to find out who’s behind the attacks—unless the killer decides to find her first…

There were a few discontinuities in this novel, things that didn’t match up with previous books, like mention of Sookie never having a dishwasher before, when in a previous novel Arlene had put dishes in the dishwasher when looking over her, but this didn’t disrupt the overall novel.

I only had a tiny idea of who to suspect at all, and it was a very very faint one. Like the rest of the novels, this one had not just one but two rather good mysteries. Thank goodness Sookie has a fairy looking out for her!

While Sookie remains unattached in this novel, it’s interesting to see the relationship dynamics between she and the vampires she is familiar with, especially with Bill starting to see someone else.
