"Take a look at the recently revealed cover of book 11 in Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series, Dead Reckoning. The book, which will be released on May 3, 2011, is now available for pre-order on Amazon. Harris recently confirmed the May release date on her Facebook page. She also alerted fans that the release date for the Sookie Stackhouse Companion has been pushed back until fall 2011.Here’s a synopsis of Dead Reckoning (from Goodreads.com):
With her knack for being in trouble’s way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte’s, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. But Sookie suspects otherwise and she and Sam work together to uncover the culprit – and the twisted motive for the attack. But her attention is divided. Though she can’t ‘read’ vampires, Sookie knows her lover Eric Northman and his ‘child’ Pam well – and she realises that they are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, she is drawn into the plot -which is much more complicated than she knows. Caught up in the politics of the vampire world, Sookie will learn that she is as much of a pawn as any ordinary human – and that there is a new Queen on the board . . .
So what do you think of the cover? Sookie is upside down, so maybe that means her world is turned upside in this book. What could cause that? Hmmm…I hope there isn’t trouble between her and Eric. The pieces of paper around her are on fire, and I’m not sure what that means. Is it a reference to the fire at Merlotte’s? It’s going to be hard to wait until May!
