Better than the last one, but I did get slightly confused as to what was actually going on - there were so many plots and subplots that it was a bit too much at times.
Sookie has to attend the Vampire Summit, where Sophie-Ann will stand trial for the murder of her husband - the trial has been delayed because of Hurrican Katrina. The Queens home state has been devastated and many Vampires were lost. Sookie knows that Sophie-Ann is innocent and will act as a witness. But she's also got to work for her - scoping out the humans for the Queen.
Along the way she gets it on with Quinn, has another blood exchange with Eric and meets up with Barry - the only other telepath she's met. There's murder and quite a few explosions and Sookie becomes terrified of Andre (way to go Quinn!).
