I'm jumping ahead of myself... Let me get this off my chest:
First of all I get it! Richard is hot! I realized this in Circus of the Damned. If someone just started reading at book 8, they still get that Richard is hot and she loves and desires him, because she says it 50 freaking times with 8 page descriptions.
Bringing me to number two, repeat, repeat, repeat! Nathaniel has long pure auburn hair, Daniel blonde, Asher golden blonde, JC beautiful locks and pale skin, he looks soooo beautiful, Richard pulls his hair into a ponytail for the illusion of a clean cut and he worked out, so he's bigger; Jamaal has braids that smells good.. Jason is hawt with a demented sense of humor and top of my list vampires look alive after they've fed etc. Each description is atleast 5 mins and described about 4 times each per book. Shut... Up! It's insulting! If you can't follow the rules of this world, then you don't need to read it. LKH describes things over again like every reader is a bumbling idiot that can't follow. All these fillers, get some action going and not 20 minutes of reading sex or how shiny someone's eyebrows are!!!!
Of course sex is number three; I'm thrilled that Anita is finally getting laid. Describing her as prude is an understatement. I can tell she even loosened up a bit, but my gosh, mingle, don't go full blown skank.
Fourth, nobody is vulnerable anymore or really dies! I loved Anita because she was humanish and always outgunned. Now, one on one fights with pack members, vampire servants and everyone wanting to stanky leg heal. I keep hearing she's a necromancer, but when does her own power develop. The theatrics in this book for a whole 5 minute read was disappointing. Let's see you control some stuff with the vampires, get all dark phoenix and hadouken some vampires with the sun already! Chew up some bad guys with the walking dead (screw her morals) Only dealing with masters of the city and their entourage? No other vampire clan in town you can burn up? Everyone is alright with a necromancer running around? No actual vampire hunting at all! Did I mention she's a vampire hunter!!? It's on the cover!!!!! Who cares about Odin lineage and lupas, I get their you're friends! Pile them in the mystery van and introduce your sidekicks while you slay some damn vampires already. Why is this always the main storyline now?
ok.. back to the main storyline.
They of course introduced what this baddie would be in the middle of the book (I got Hyped) and the whole 5 pages of it in there is really anticlimatic. Why even bring it up? Not even a dang zombie.....
If you're an Anita Blake fan, you have to read it just because. It's like reading a filler episode if this were t.v. It's a good enough read to keep you entertained. LKH has dumbed down supporting characters to make Anita seem like the Hulk now. I mean come on, not one freaking werewolf, vampire or fae knows how to use a gun? It's entertaining, but that's about it.
Readers also learn more about Pack culture and Anita learns more about her role as leader of the leopards. Many of the characters from home are on hand in this story.
I love the world and character building both in this story as well as the series. Anita is vulnerable but determined and takes responsibility for others. I’ve re-read this story a number of times over the years and find it one of the more interesting of the earlier books when it comes to so many different types of relationships. Anita’s experiences in this one are somewhat different in both what she does, learns and confronts.
Well the characters are starting to bore me... Anita is becoming this Alucard from the anime series hELLSING. (for those who don't know, he's invincible AT ALL TIMES)
She's losing her persona. She just always seems to be stronger than the enemy...I know she should evolve but she does it too fast and too good.
She has this honnesty streak which I like, this sense of morality which is twisted but it's just well she's becoming unnaturally strong and a bit predictable...(maybe more than a bit) Well i still have a few more to go before making this my final conclusion.
Last but not least there is the overwhelming sex... the moralizing and then the sex again... she seems to grow in force but to schrink in persona
PS the bad guys are also the kind of black and white bad guy... no in between.
And her french is poorly researched and not good. bonheur means happiness and is not the same as good luck which is Bonne chance en français. Et je peux vous dire qu'il y a plein d'erreurs comme ça et ça m'énerve
