Somehow I thought there would be more story to the story. There was only the one major focus for the entire book and then, as a side plot, Sookie and Eric. I have to agree with others that a lot of this book seemed like filler fluff. Sookie runs errands. Sookie visits friends. Sookie has lunch. Sookie daydreams about this and that. But, again, little story. And the story that was the focus did nothing to further this book series. I guess that since the book series is supposed to be completed within another book or two, this wraps up some of the characters, but it just didn't further any of the major characters stories. It just took some of the smaller characters out of the picture. It was like a book designed to tidy up some loose ends and get them out of the way for the big finale. Hopefully the big finale is more satisfying than this was. The end was really just like someone quit typing at the end of their sentence without bothering to finish a paragraph.

The author spends a good chunk of each chapter recounting events for the previous 11 books or lying the groundwork for the next book. The story drags on in between.
I also had the feeling that Sookie's "voice" in the first person wasn't consistent with her "voice" in the other books.
This is the last novel-I'm sticking with True Blood.

The Sookie novels were my saviour after reading Twilight and thinking I would never find anything else to read again. Usually I cannot put a Sookie book down but this one I did 2 or 3 times. Not sure why just did not capture me
