Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris

The vamps have been out for years, and now the weres and shifters have decided to follow the lead of the undead and reveal their existence to the ordinary world. Sookie Stackhouse already knows about them, of course - her brother turns into a panther at the full moon, she's friend to the local were pack, and Sam, her boss at Merlotte's bar, is a shapeshifter.

The great revelation goes well at first - then the horribly mutilated body of a were-panther is found in the parking lot of Merlotte's, and Sookie agrees to use her telepathic talent to track down the murderer. But there is a far greater danger than this killer threatening Bon Temps: a race of unhuman beings, older, more powerful, and far more secretive than the vampires or the werewolves, is preparing for war. And Sookie is an all-too-human pawn in their ages-old battle...

Where to Buy

Another good entry in the series. Sookie continues to become more and more entangled in the supernatural world, most likely irrevocably so at this point (actually that point probably came several books ago.) And along with her growing entanglement in things, so too do her emotions take more and more of a beating as she has to deal with yet another series of crises, this time some that hit a bit too close to home. It seems that each book changes her just a bit more, but I think the events in this book are going to have changed her quite a bit by the time we see her again. It will be interesting to see how she came through it all once she's had more of a chance to let the dust settle.
