From the cover:

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. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover, Eric Northman, and his “child” Pam are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot – which is much more complicated than she knows…

(This is the eleventh book in The Southern Vampire Mysteries series, after Dead Until DarkLiving Dead in DallasClub DeadDead to the WorldDead as a DoornailDefinitely DeadAll Together DeadFrom Dead to WorseDead and Gone, and Dead in the Family.)

I don’t really have a lot to say about Dead Reckoning, to be honest. It was kind of forgettable. For the most part, I’m pretty sure that I could’ve skipped reading this book and still understood later events to come in the series. It’s just … well … predictable and boring. Really. One of the only highlights of the book is a performance by Bubba, and that should tell you something.
