Synopsis: (From Amazon)book06definitelydead
As a person with so few living relatives, Louisiana cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse really hated to lose one. But she never guessed that it would be her cousin Hadley—a consort of the Vampire Queen of New Orleans. After all, technically speaking, Hadley was already dead. And now, as unexpected heir to Hadley’s estate, Sookie discovers the inheritance definitely comes with a risk.

Someone doesn’t want Sookie looking too deeply into Hadley’s past—or for that matter, Hadley’s possessions. And they’re prepared to do anything in their power to stop her. But who? The range of suspects runs from the Rogue Weres who reject Sookie as a friend of the Pack to the Vampire Queen herself, who could be working through a particularly vulnerable subject—Sookie’s first love, Bill.

Whoever it is, they’re definitely dangerous—and Sookie’s life is definitely on the line…

No matter her thoughts, Sookie is going to end up deeper into vampire politics than she ever wanted to.

Relationship wise, this book hits the jackpot. We have so many new faces introduced with good characterization, and you also get to see some already known faces and watch as their relationships with Sookie shift and deepen.

I had guessed of what the king might be trying to do, but what really blindsided me and made me truly sympathetic towards Sookie was the betrayal she learned of. As for the second side of the mystery, I figured it out far too soon, but I sure was glad Quinn was there to help Sookie deal with it (Eric too!)
