Dead in the Family (#10)

Previous: Dead and Gone | Next: Dead Reckoning

In the tenth novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, Sookie Stackhouse learns that not even her psychic abilities can help her solve all the problems in Bon Temps, Louisiana…

After enduring torture and the loss of loved ones during the brief but deadly Fae War, Sookie Stackhouse is hurt and she’s mad. Just about the only bright spot in her life is the love she thinks she feels for vampire Eric Northman. But he’s under scrutiny by the new vampire king because of their relationship. And as the political implications of the shifters’ coming-out are beginning to be felt, Sookie’s connection to one particular Were draws her into the dangerous debate. Also, unknown to her, though the doors to Faery have been closed, there are still some fae on the human side—and one of them is angry at Sookie. Very, very angry.


“Lively and funny, DEAD IN THE FAMILY has genuine heart.”

The Los Angeles Times

“Hits a new level of excellence!”

RT Book Reviews

“One of the reasons Charlaine Harris has been able to maintain the series so successfully is that she varies her pace between the novels, rather than bring on successively more massive (and ultimately more ridiculous) enemies and events. Fans who love the series because of the characters will welcome the chance to see Sookie and co in a less action packed story.”

SFX Magazine (UK)

“Sookie moves through all the crazy stuff with trademark wit and her late grandmother’s wisdom and charm.”
