eurgh eurgh eurgh this is so boring. Nothing but boring old repeat pack intrigue and vampire intrigue is happening in this book. There’s nothing particularly new or exciting. Bill drives off with Colton. Sookie goes with the werewolves. The werewolves lied about having Warren. They’re rogues Alcide refused to let join the pack because they have criminal records. They’re going to overthrow Alcide. Well, after they’re done raping Sookie, as this is a Charlaine Harris novel and she is contractually obligated to have at least one mention or attempted rape of her main character in every book. One of them punches her so she takes her opportunity to attack him, even though there’s one of her and four of them.
Luckily for her, someone shoots one of them through the car window. It’s deux ex Mustapha, come to save her. He drives her to Alcide’s, but takes the time to ask about why she is wearing prostitute clothes. Keep it classy.
AND THEN SOOKIE EXPLAINS ALL THE LAST FEW CHAPTERS OVER AGAIN TO ALCIDE. more exposition argh argh argh i am going to go cray cray
anyway it turns out that alcide believed sookie that a woman he’d known for years and years was actually an evil scheming bitch. Go figure. He followed her around and saw that Jannaylynn was meeting up with the rogues (and I have given up caring about the amount of n’s in that name). The girl rogue
had big tits actually had good character, so Alcide recruited her to work on the inside. Jannalynn wanted to overthrow Alcide herself and become packmaster, even though she has been madly in love with Alcide for as long as she’s appeared and never displayed any violent tendencies towards him in this time.
Funny how the people that Sookie doesn’t like always turn out to be bad, isn’t it?
The rogues were taking Sookie to Jananylnn. Luckily, Mustapha and Alcide had already become bros before this point and engineered her rescue. It would not have been pleasant otherwise. Janylnn had allowed the rogues to have time with Sookie before they brought her in. Ick.
I came out of the bathroom. Alcide was having a beer, and Mustapha was drinking a Coca-Cola.
Sorry to be so pedantic, but Mustapha doesn’t take any stimulants of any kind. That’s why he turned down soda from Sookie in the last book. And in the opening chapters of this book. Continuity be damned!
oh and it turns out that janylnn was involved with the drinky drinky murder plot. she knew kym from childhood and told mustapha to let her into eric’s house. this is stupid.
“No, it was not her plan,” Mustapha said clearly. “She was hired to find a Were girl willing to carry it out, but it was the plan of this dude named Claude. I’ve seen him at your place. Your cousin?”
well, this is about to get a lot stupider.
