It would be an exaggeration to say that Laurell K. Hamilton's Incubus Dreams is just one sex scene after another. This twelth novel in her bestselling Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series presents a wedding, a murder, and a lot of relationship angst before getting down and dirty on page 89; and the sex scenes pause on page 377 to let the mystery plot resume. The series deftly blends elements of alternate history, horror, romance, erotica, and mystery, but anyone reading Incubus Dreams for the murder plot is going to be frustrated. However, Incubus Dreams is a considerably stronger and more interesting book than its talky predecessor, Cerulean Sins, and fans will enjoy the many new developments in Anita's complicated love life. --Cynthia Ward

Cut to 658 pages and 200 typos later, and here I sit horrified and dumbfounded. What the holy (insert Anita's favorite expletive here) was this?? It was as if Cerulean Sins never existed! All those threads I mentioned? Still dangling. No room to address them when you've got 500 pages of talky porn to write!
Yes, before Anita and her lovers (some of them strangers introduced a mere half a page before Anita goes all ardeur on them) have sex, they TALK ABOUT IT for at least TWO CHAPTERS beforehand. Perhaps Anita must feed the "talkeur" before the "ardeur". Though the sex is pretty hot, you'll be amazed that the lovers haven't talked themselves into a coma first. Like all die-hard Anita fans, I was expecting another great read. Instead, here's what I got.
100 pages of unresolved mystery story,
200 pages of psychoanalytical musings (of the "Richard loves to hate himself more than he loves to love me!Read more ›
* Sex with vampires and weres
* Anita gets some new powers brought on by (you've guessed it!) sex
* Some vampire or other is killing strippers, this is supposed to be the "plot", however, the "plot" lasts for about 30 pages in the 600-plus book.
* More useless sex scenes in which Anita has conversations with her boy toys while having sex
* Inner-conflicts before and during the sex scenes (why bother? just accept that you're a slut and get it over with!)
* Rain-making, back-breaking orgasms
* Pretty boys with long hair "spilling" all over the place
* Conclusion to the vampire stripper killer "plot". A bad conclusion at that.
And there you have it. A waste of time, money and energy for a reader. SOMETHING mind-altering in a very bad way. Either Hamilton was under the influence of something while she wrote this or she didn't bother to create something that was at the very least plausible. Even for her who is not a good writer to begin with, she's obviously waaaay out of it.
What's worse, I have the sneaking suspicion that these non-plot stories are going to monopolize the series from hereon in. I read the sample chapters of her next AB novel on her website and I have already decided that I'm off Anita Blake for good.Read more ›
Once upon an April raining, in great need of entertaining,
The postman left me a sweet gift; a package from an online store
Which I opened, gently beaming; yearning for incubus dreaming,
But when finished I was screaming, screaming from the porn galore
"'Tis some piece of junk," I ranted, "Pointless sex shoved down my craw -
Only this and nothing more."
All that long hard day I pondered; am I mistaken, I wondered?
Did I miss the author's message, buried midst the heart of ardeur.
Staunchly I reread the writing; still I found it unexciting
Filler phrases, blood and biting; Anita's screams of `f*** me harder'
Rainmakers and domination, was there truly nothing more?
And where was the editor?
As typos mounted by the hour, with Anita's swelling power
I went searching for an answer, whence I entered Laurell's board;
Baffled by the author's reason - was it werecat mating season?Read more ›
