September 2018 reading:

38. Curse on the Land, by Faith Hunter (328 pages)
Nell's life has been thrown into turmoil after Jane Yellowrock rocketed her into the modern world and PsyLED and into accepting her abilities. But her forest is ill--and she needs to find out why before the death overtakes them all. I almost enjoy this series more than the Jane Yellowrock series!

39. Burn Bright, by Patricia Briggs (308 pages)
When an SOS comes in from a lone wolf's fae mate, Charles and Anna arrive to interrupt the abduction of the lone wolf only for the kidnappers to kill her rather than let her live. They need to find the attackers and root out who is threatening the existence of their Pack--and they know it's someone close to home, who knows where the lone wolves are.

40. Tricks for Free, by Seanan McGuire (409 pages)
Antimony is on the run, and the best place to hide is in a crowd--which is how she finds herself at a Florida theme park working as a peon. But tragic events start happening that might be related to her powers, and she garners the attention of a shadow cabal that controls the park, themselves sorcerers, with dark plans of their own. Given little choice but to join them, with the opportunity to possibly learn to control her budding powers, she strives to survive the coming storm. Loving this series!

41. Night and Silence, by Seanan McGuire (368 pages)
Tybalt and Jazz are fragile after their experience in captivity, and October doesn't know how to fix things--especially with Tybalt pulling away from her in ways that devastate her. What she needs least of all is the kidnapping of her daughter, Gillian, or to be accused by her ex-husband of the act. She's forced on a path that will make all of them confront their demons, and will show her how many loose ends she's failed to tie up over the years, with potentially devastating consequences.

42. Club Dead, by Charlaine Harris (292 pages)
When Bill, Sookie's vampire boyfriend, disappears in Mississippi, she's sent after him to discover what has occurred. Her goal is to save him, if at all possible. What she doesn't expect is a betrayal that makes her question everything, and might kill her to-boot!

43. Dead to the World, by Charlaine Harris (291 pages)

44. Dead as a Doornail, by Charlaine Harris (297 pages)
Sookie's brother has changed, a transformation that puts him in danger when a sniper starts to pick off members of the local shifter community and anyone associated with them--which also puts Sookie in their crosshairs.

The time has come for Sookie to claim her late cousin's inheritance and put her affairs to rest. It's made more complicated by the fact that her cousin was the lover of the vampire Queen of Louisiana. Turns out, that makes it more dangerous, too, because Hadley had something a lot of people would kill for.

46. All Together Dead, by Charlaine Harris (323 pages)
Sookie's presence has been required at the vampire summit. Not only are there complicated vampire politics to contend with, but also a large number of human fanatics who want to destroy all vampires--and anyone who associates with them.

The supernatural community and its politics are about to go through some ugly and difficult upheaval as a result of the events of the last book. This leaves some dead, and Sookie with new connections.

The weres and shifters have decided to come out of the closet like vampires have been for years. At first it goes well, but then a were-panther is found dead and mutilated in the bar parking lot on a crucifix. But it turns out there are more than just shifters and vampires out there, and they're throwing their weight around, too. And Sookie might just be caught in the middle.

49. Dead in the Family, by Charlaine Harris (311 pages)
Sookie's dealing with new family, the trials associated with being Eric's lover, and the sudden return of Eric's vampire maker. After what happened with Bill's maker, Sookie's not too excited about the last one. She also has obligations to the Shreveport were pack, all while trying to recover from the events of last book.
