My buddies over at Lastbitepodcast (a great podcast about all things Sookie/ True Blood/all things vampire at www.sookiestackhouse.com) tipped me off to this nugget in Publisher’s Weekly. It’s a short book blurb on the next book — DEAD IN THE FAMILY. It’s got a few interesting tidbits/minor spoilers. But also brings up a few questions! (You can follow Lastbitepodcast on Twitter, too! CLICK HERE to follow.) Oh — and before I forget, the buzz on Twitter and Web sites has season No. 3 of True Blood kicking off on June 13.

Dead in the Family Charlaine Harris. Ace, $25.95 (320p) ISBN 978-0-441-01864-2

Still reeling from the deaths of her fairy cousin, Claudine, and many others in 2009’s Dead and Gone, Sookie Stackhouse struggles with paranormal politics in her entertaining if slow-moving 10th outing. When Claudine’s triplet, Claude, appears at her doorstep, Sookie reluctantly allows him to move in. The government threatens two-natures with mandatory registration, and tensions run high in the local Were pack. Then Eric’s maker, a Roman named Appius Livius Ocella, arrives without warning, bringing along Alexei Romanov, whom he rescued from the Bolsheviks and turned into a vampire. Though the action often builds too slowly, the exploration of family in its many human and undead variations is intriguing, and Harris delivers her usual mix of eccentric characters and engaging subplots.

Hummm — Alexei Romanov. Rescued from the Bolsheviks. Could it be the little tsar with the blood disorder? Eric’s maker? And Claude moves in with Sookie? Like I said … hummmmm. Until the book comes out …. (Of course, feel free to speculate below!)
