Liked this one a lot more than the first one. Sookie wasn't quite as annoying. If anything Bill annoyed me more. Which is weird, as I really liked him in the first book.
Ok, so, in this one we have 2 story threads - the first concerning the murder of Lafayette. The second involving a trip to Dallas and a run in with the Fellowship of the Sun. Both were dealt with rather well, Sookie is growing on me - as is Eric (hmmm, attending an orgy in pink lycra, nice). He's the kind of guy you don't want to like, because you know he's a total player, but you just can't help it.
I'm starting to hope that Sookie dumps Bill and gets with Eric (the vamp saved her life, while Bill went hunting - hello, that's not a good sign).
I'm starting to wonder if there are going to be any people left alive in Bon Temps apart from Sookie and Sam.
