Description - Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris

If you think your family relationships are complicated, think again: you haven't seen anything like the ones in Bon Temps, Louisiana. Sookie Stackhouse is dealing with a whole host of family problems, ranging from her own kin (a non-human fairy and a telepathic second cousin) demanding a place in her life, to her lover Eric's vampire sire, an ancient being, who arrives with Eric's 'brother' in tow at a most inopportune moment. And Sookie's tracking down a distant relation of her ailing neighbour (and ex), Vampire Bill Compton. In addition to the multitude of family issues complicating her life, the werewolf pack of Shreveport has asked Sookie for a special favour, and since Sookie is an obliging young woman, she agrees. But this favour for the wolves has dire results for Sookie, who is still recovering from the trauma of her abduction during the Fairy War.

Book Review: Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris - Reviewed by (01 Jul 2011)

Sookie is coming to terms both physically and emotionally with the outcome of the recent Fairy War. Not only have lives been lost including Claudine's, her cousin and fairy godmother, but others have left her with no prospect of returning. Amelia is returning to New Orleans and Niall and the fairies have left this world for their fairy land never to return.

For a woman with little family remaining Sookie is inundated with family requests. Claude, Sookie's gorgeous and arrogant cousin, asks to move in but he is not the only fairy prowling around Sookie's home. Hunter's father Remy asks for assistance with Hunter's gift and Jason, thankfully, is settling down again spending more quality time with his sister.

But Sookie is not the only one to be affected by family. Bill, still suffering from silver poisoning, pays a family visit and is intern paid a visit by long lost 'family'. And with her recent marriage to Eric, and the blood bond between them, Sookie is feeling the effects of the in-laws more acutely then ever when Eric is plagued by 'family' of his own.

Dead in the Family sees family descend and their problems dictate over the lives of Sookie and her friends as only family can. But when your family feuds involve vampires and fairies someone is likely to end up seriously maimed, if not staked. But you can hardly refuse family, even if they are unwelcome and unwanted. Another Sookie tale that is as addictive and bloody as ever.

Book Review: Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris - Reviewed by (25 Aug 2010)

Dead in the Family, book number 10 in the Sookie Stackhouse series, is definitely no let-down. For loyal and dedicated fans who have read the previous 9 books in the series they will not be disappointed.

Dead in the family is still action packed and realistic in its depiction of the supernatural world created by Charlaine Harris, however in this particular book you wil be met with a slightly more world wary Sookie that in no way detracts from her original character - in fact, this growth of character is what makes her easily likeable and real.

The intricacies of Sookies relationship with Eric are explored, and Bill is by no means absent. Nor are her fae relatives of which there are some who seek revenge on Sookie.

Indeed, Sookie must accept and heal from the devastating torture she experienced in the previous novel under the hands of her fae relatives, along with the deaths of her fairy godmother Claudine and her new friend Amelia's werewolf boyfriend.

Overall, this book most definitely lives up to expectations and there is much room for an 11th - loyal fans and readers should be very pleased with this latest wonderful addition.
