Anyone read this yet? I feel like I totally missed a whole book before this or something. Seriously, I kept looking at the title to make sure I hadn't missed a book.

If you haven't at least started it, don't read ahead!

There is all this talk about her cousin dying and being summoned by the queen, etc. Seriously... I don't remember that ever happening in any of the books. It feels like the author must have wrote about it, then needed to cut those scenes out or something. I mean, things are going to happen in between books, but this is a LOT to just gloss over.

Did I miss something? I even reloaded all the books on my Kindle and searched for the cousins name and it only came up once in book number 5. I find this really annoying and haven't enjoyed this book as much because I feel like it's some pretty big stuff that she's filling us in on...

This was in a short story collection with some other authors. I don't remember the name.
Many Bloody Returns or Bite, maybe?

Me too. I missed it like you did and had to search for it, but it was awhile back.

I did the EXACT same thing!!!  I went nuts trying to figure out what I missed!!!

It is a short story in a book of collections by like-authors.  If you do an amazon search for Charlaine Harris, I think that it pulls up.  It was like $11.00 when I discovered it and I sure wasn't buying that just for one short story....

Keep on reading, you can piece it together....but no, you are not crazy...

Yep! It felt like we were supposed to know this already and I did the same thing and loaded the books back on to search  ;D

That annoyed me to no end. There should be mention of it somewhere, and you shouldn't ahve to pay $10 to read one short story in a collection to feel like you know what's going on. It made me give that book a lower review because of it.

But, I've moved on and am now looking forward to the next book to come out! I'm considering reading another series of hers, anyone read anything else by her?

i've read all of her other series, and enjoyed them. they are all very different from sookie though, the shakespeare series and aurora teagarden series are mysteries, and so is harpers series (grave  sight. etc.) but with a slight paranormal twist. the southern vampire series is probably the funniest of the bunch. and the lily bard/shakespeare series the darkest. i enjoyed all of them for different reasons tho.

I'm pretty sure the book of short stories is called "a touch of dead". I enjoyed the sookie stackhouse books, but I noticed a lot of errors in the writing. It seems like she forgets what she had written before. For example, one of the characters she said was a "were" lynx, later she says that she's a "were" fox. There are many mistakes of this nature. It's hard to believe that editors didn't catch these mistakes.
