    When a 15-year-old girl is abducted by vampires, it’s up to U.S. Marshal Anita Blake to find her. And when she does, she’s faced with something she’s never seen before: a terrifyingly ordinary group of people - kids, grandparents, soccer moms - all recently turned and willing to die to avoid serving a master. And where there’s one martyr, there will be more.

    pewter says: "Weak Link in the Anita Blake Series"
    "Another Anita Blake novel with NO PLOT!!!"

    Story
    What would have made Kiss the Dead better?

    Giving it more plot. Most of it feels like fill, fill, and more fill. I'm so sick of hearing about AB's lovers, and how she's such a bad-ass cop "just one of the boys." PLEASE go back to giving your poor, long-suffering readers a real story -- with plot and lots of action -- to read!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Laurell K. Hamilton again?

    Probably not. It's a waste of good money.


    What does Kimberly Alexis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She's a good reader. What a shame she wasn't given a better written book to demonstrate her talent.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    All three. Some of the scenes -- like the ones blabbing away over nothing with the "guys" made me just plain furious! Where is the plot!


    Any additional comments?

    Ms Hamilton, I beg you to have more respect for your readers and give us something decent to sink our teeth into. You used to be the best in the business. Now it feels as if you're just throwing out a new AB book every year because you know you're supposed to. Your once devoted readers aren't going to put up with this forever. Please, take a little time and give us something fun and exciting to read again.
