Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris
Except for Sookie Stackhouse, folks in Bon Temps, Louisiana, knew little about vamps -- and nothing about Weres. Until now. The Weres and shifters have finally revealed their existence to the ordinary world, and the backlash may have claimed the life of someone Sookie knew. But her determination to find out who is responsible for the murder is put aside in the face of a far greater danger. A race of unhuman beings -- older, more powerful, and more secretive than vampires or werewolves -- is preparing for war. And Sookie will find herself an all-too-human pawn in their battle....

The fairies move in.
Dead and Gone is the ninth full-length novel in the Sookie Stackhouse series by popular American author, Charlaine Harris. The weres have decided to come out to the world, and the supe community holds its breath, waiting for the reaction, which is mixed, but a lot less negative than might have been anticipated. There are incidents, of course: Sam’s mother is shot and Jason’s wife is brutally murdered, although whether this is a reaction to weres, or something more personal, is not clear.

The FBI turns up in Bon Temps to question Sookie, and she fears her life may change for the worse. But soon, Sookie is in danger from another quarter entirely, and has to call in promises of protection from the vamps and weres. She becomes a pawn in a brutal war, arming herself, to surprising effect, with just a garden trowel and a water pistol.

This instalment sees news of two pregnancies, Sookie wed through a trick, and a once good friend setting a nasty trap. Sookie learns more about her family’s history, gets up close and personal with Eric (again) and is kidnapped and tortured. The fairies prove to be much nastier than Sookie had realised, and their departure will unlikely be mourned by many. After this revealing dose of Sookie, what’s next for our telepathic cocktail waitress?
