“I haven’t had a very good day. I think I might still be hung over and everyone’s dead and my root beer’s gone.”
“Isn’t every hero aware of all the terrible reasons they did those good deeds?” Aware of every mistake they ever made and how good people got hurt because of their decisions? Don’t they recall the moments they weren’t heroic at all? The moments where their heroism led to more deaths than deliberate villainy ever could?”
Dead and Gone (Sookie Stackhouse #9) by Charlaine Harris
The weres and shifters have finally decided to reveal their existence to the ordinary world. At first all goes well. Then the mutilated body of a were-panther is found near the bar where Sookie works-and she feels compelled to discover who, human or otherwise, did it.
