The third novel of Hamilton's Anita Blake series has the petite necromancer fighting a giant cobra and a rogue vampire, Alejandro, who wants her for his human servant. Anita is still resisting the advances of Jean-Claude, St. Louis's master vampire, but she does need him on her side, if not in her bed. Anita's reluctant involvement in the odd goings-on at the supernatural Circus of the Damned introduces her to Richard, the werewolf of her dreams, and Larry, her powerful but nervous partner in zombie-raising.
Mystery fans will love the tightly plotted, Paretsky-esque action, and horror fans will love just about everything in this unusual series. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This has to be one of my favorite books in the Anita Blake series. This is where it seems that the shifter world starts getting a more prominent spot in the Anitaverse, which just adds an additional layer of complications, and fun, to the series. It’s also where you first meet Richard, who is totally dreamy and wonderful, at least for now.
This is also where you start noticing that Anita doesn’t have quite the aversion to Jean-Claude as she once had. Some might say that’s a good thing, others a bad. For me personally, I love this change. Can’t get enough of Jean-Claude, in my opinion.
Overall, it’s a great addition the the AB series, and I highly recommend it (though you DO need to read this series in order. Too many characters and backstories that just won’t make sense if you don’t start at the beginning). You got to love a strong, badass female character, that’s not annoying so. Great read!
I like murder and other mysteries and I like some vampire fiction. This book has a lot of what I like from these genres but more than that, it has personal development of the characters which is ever evolving beyond this particular book.
Oh and it turns out that the monsters can be pretty good and they can be pretty terrible. Oh wait a minute- just like humans.
We all know humanity has its monsters as part of its own population. But these monsters are so much more colorful and dramatic and thankfully fictional!
