"This popular series has a wild energy and humor, and some very appealing characters - both dead and alive." (Amazon.com review)
I lost interest and did not finish the book. I just never became interested in Anita Blake. I was hoping for another good vampire series, kind of like the Southern Vampire Mysteries. Won't finish the series.
I am a "Life is Awesome! Strive to be Worthy of it." student of life kind of guy. Feeding on Chaos and Empowering the Good. Group Hug!
I loved the book but was a little disappointed in the Narration of this book, the \narrator reminded me of the sitcom "Friday". I kept waiting for her to say "I'm Friday, I carry a badge".... It wasn't annoying enough to stop listening too and so I will buy the next book too. :)
I consume literature. I drive a semi-truck/tanker and have lots of time between my destinations so a good book is essential to my well being
Yes, I've listened to it twice so far and will do so again before reading the next book when it comes out. Some books and series are like old friends and need to be revisited often.
I don't know if there is one memorable moment in this book. But when Jean-Claude gives Anita the first of her vampire marks would be a good one. It is a gift not a sentence.
I think the big fight scene when Anita kills Nicolaos and saves Jean-claude is my favorite part of the book. I love a strong woman.
Anita's care for people she knows moves me, when she sees Willie McCoy for the first time since he has become and undead and treats him with respect and begins to realize that maybe dead is a relative term.
Laurel's books are wonderfully constructed pieces of art to me, I listed to a lot of books and have well over 200 titles in my audible library alone, not counting all of the books that I had purchased on cassette and disc before finding Audible.
I've read Heroditus, Homer, Dumas, and Voltaire just to name a very few but I love Laurel K. Hamilton as much as I do the classics.
I read this because I had so many friends rave about this series. I found it boring, derivative, and just an utter waste of time.
Not worth the effort to track all the characters. I think this is the worst audio book I ever tried to listen to, and I wasn't able to finish half of part 1. I had to give it one star, but only gave that because I had to.
I like a good vampire novel, but this was cheezy and annoying. The main character is supposed to be sarcastic, and the book is littered with little quips like "peachy keen" and "bully for me." Pure drivel. I don't mind a mindless, entertaining book, but something about this just drove me crazy.
I love vampire books, but found this series unbearable to listen to. I couldn't make myself get interested in the story, much less care about the main character. Maybe I didn't give it enough of a chance, but I didn't even make it through the first book. I do not recommend this series.
