I LOVE the characters, but this book is by far the worst in the series. I think Hamilton started to go wrong with "incubus," and just continues to keep sinking. Although "Harlequin" was better, this book is just not good. I liked the end, but this entire book could have been condensed into 3 chapters of a REAL novel where things actuall HAPPEN, rather than lots of people having sex in a hotel room for most of the book. Ugh. I will read the next one in the series, but if it is like this one, it will be my last.
I'm having such trouble with this book because it sounds like someone reading as if they are reading a childrens' book but reading about sex. At first it made me laugh, now it just grates on my nerves. It is a good book but I recommend you get the book, not the audio.
Rather disappointed, but better than a kick in the head..but not by much. The start of the book launches off into a sex scene, of course, which I skipped. Hot and heavy sex the first few times was okay, but book after book? Granted the last two have slackened off with the sex but still.. And I kid you not, at least 90% of the story takes place in one hotel room. We get to hear long and rather boring conversations between Anita and Jason, and get to hear the same argument between Richard and Anita yet AGAIN, but we do at least find out why he's been such a jerk.
Lowest bodycount yet..only 2 die in this book as I recall..I was shocked..shocked I say.
Like Cotton Candy...fluffy and sweet, but not very filling.
I love Vampire stories. As far as vampire genre goes this story is lame at best. Didn't really care for all the characters that kept coming and going while we followed Anita Blake, the main character through a wedding adventure. The story line/plot was interesting but never follows through. Narration was not very exciting and lent nothing to the story. Save your time and credits...pass on both parts.
l love getting learn more about Jason and where he comes from. I love all Anita Blake novels and feel like her character is one I am glad is still continuing after 20 years. please enjoy this one and all the others.
I much prefer Kimberly Alexis as the narrator Cynthia Holloway is too one voiced and too girly to be Anita Blake. Glad this is the only book I have to listen to her read
This book might be better for someone searching for some supernatural erotica.
No, but it has turned me off to Laurel K Hamilton's later work.
She brings a depth of different male characters. She voiced many of the different men in ways that matched how I had imagined them in earlier books. I really enjoyed her take on them.
I loved the series. Especially the characters. It was nice to learn more about them. I just wish it had more plot and less sex.
I felt like the plot of this book was less than one episode of a television show. The Anita Blake books used to have so much mystery, so many different scenes/locations/threads that would tie together. This book didn't have any threads to bring together. It leaned so heavily on other books in the series, you couldn't read it alone and get anything from it.
Interesting, page turning
Jason, Jason, Jason! I love the relationship that Jason and Anita have. It's built on friendship and truth.
Richard really is a weak link.... wish he would have an ah ha moment and just accept who and what he is.
