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!
On the other hand, I look forward to her creating works of art that keep me engaged during the entire read. Not all authors have been able to keep me this entertained.
Could you imagine an end to the legalization of American vampires? I can't. Anita is faced with many challenges in this edition. There are immortal creatures that threaten her life, a vampire older than dirt, and Richard Zeeman, who turns out to be a sexy werewolf. Haven't had a chance to read any of the others yet? Don't worry. Even if you start with this one, Anita, Jean Claude, and Richard will keep you coming back for more.
I have now read 19 of these books and I can safety say there is more adult romance ahead....
