This review is from: Danse Macabre (Hardcover)
I don't care what the naysayers keep on about. I swear some people just keep reading the books so they can get in here and bitch about them. (and bitch they do, ad nauseam) I realize the series isn't the same as when it started. Personally, I wouldn't want it to be. I'm one of the ones who came in with 'Narcissus', when the books really took off in popularity. I read all the one's before, you really need the whole story, and I believe this series has developed in the direction it was meant to go. I remember feeling a kind of impatience with the first books, wondering when they where going to get to where they really needed to go. I think the series really started to get there with "Blue Moon". It goes further each time, it's not going back to the old stuff-- been there, done that. I really do want to know more and more about what's going on day to day, the personal day to day details, it can't just be about guns and killing all the time. This book gave me what I wanted and I liked it. Of course, I'll be back in line for the next one. The wait is long and hard.
This series really took off in popularity around the time of "Narcissus in Chains", there was a big change in style with that book. The naysayers simply aren't willing to acknowledge that LKH is simply giving the majority of her fans, and we are talking an extremely large and growing number, what they want. The continued growth in popularity proves she knows what she's doing.
Anita Blake's world just keeps getting more complicated and facinating. I wait impatiently for each new installment, read it too fast and then it's back to impatiently waiting for the next one. I love this series. This book was good, the story progressed. It was another great stone in a really amazing path. I can't wait to see where we are going.
