Publisher's Summary

The all-new novel in the number-one best-selling Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series.

The triumvirate created by master vampire Jean-Claude, necromancer Anita Blake, and werewolf Richard Zeeman has made Jean-Claude one of the most powerful vampires in the U.S. He's consolidating power in himself and those loyal to him, doing in America what Belle Morte did in Europe when she was at her height of power. She almost owned Europe, and there was those who are determined that Jean-Claude won't do the same in America. Jean-Claude's motives may be kinder, but as any lawyer will tell you: motives matter, but you're just as dead. Assassins are coming to St. Louis to kill them all. Anita knows they're coming, but even being forewarned doesn't mean you can win.

    "Bullet - Anita Blake disappointment"

    I am one of the listeners who has never "read" Laurell K. Hamilton's work; so listened to every single "Anita Blake" audio book based on release dates not in order. The last two Anita Blake novels are going downhill on plot. "Flirt" seemed rushed and light on substance; but "Bullet" was like a porn movie big on the erotic, light on plot and bored me. First time I felt I wasted my money on her books. I like when she explores many of the other characters not just the sexcapades of Anita & whoever she is having sex with. Great for those who wanted to know she did homework on BDSM; I would rather see some work on the mystery of a police case and find many of her non preternatural friends more interesting like Ronnie, Edward, Dolph. It would be fun to meet her Grandmother Blake.

    "Plot Lite"

    As others have commented, this 19th installment is particularly homoerotic, if that offends you, you're going to have a hard time with the 3 or 4 chapters of nothing but sex.

    This book had more plot and character development than the last, which I understand was not intended to be a full novel, but unlike early novels in the series, I felt like I'd received a novella not a novel. There was just too little story here. I truly hope the author can put together a more compelling installment for us next time.

    "Another member of the Disappointed club"

    While this book was at least book length and not a short story rip off disguised as a book like Flirt and Michah, I have to agree with the other reviews that it lacks plot. Yes,sex is an integral part of the series, but if you take out the sex what is left would make a good start on the first three chapters of the story of the battle with the vampire council. I've been hoping for the last several books that the trend to more sex and less plot would change but that doesn't appear to be the case. I doubt I'll buy another in the series.

    "Couldn't even finish it!"

    Hmmm...how many ways can I say TERRRIBLE? This was a waste of my money. I don't need an entire chapter dedicated to the discussion of who sodomizes whom. I like a good vampire/werewolf story...didn't find it here. Terrible, terrible book.

    "End of the line"

    I have loved the first 9 Anita Blake books until the books turned into a maddening decent into drab orgy filled dribble. I had such high hopes after reading Skin Trade (which I enjoyed), but now it seems like we have veered back to weak plot and uninspiring character development. It seems like our old (more interesting) Anita is gone, I miss the paranormal crime work, I miss the romance aspect of the original series... there is a difference between romance and smut, and I love a little sex in my books but seriously these books make all the sexiness into a huge bore. I miss the old Anita... RIP.

    "Ugh"

    I was really praying that this book would be another step up after Skin Trade (which I really enjoyed and felt was back to the "old" Anita Blake novels). These books are just devolving into straight porn/erotica and I wish that she would stop before she completely destroys the characters. Spending PAGE AFTER PAGE AFTER PAGE describing clothing and hair is just a waste of space. We get it. Also I don't know what was up with the awful music and sound effects but it made a bad novel into an awful audio book.

    I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!

    "And?"

    This book is one long build up to an orgy with very little plot development.

    Story
    "Tigers, tigers tigers"
    What does Kimberly Alexis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ms. Alexis does a wonderful job narrating this book. At times one may think there is more than one narrater.


    Any additional comments?

    I really like this series, though there is definitely a different theme to several of the previous books compared to the early books in the series.

    Story
    "Stimulating breathtaking and heartwrenching."
    Would you listen to Bullet again? Why?

    Captures your attention and never lets it go. Makes you drool with anticipation for every next chapter and for the next book.


    What other book might you compare Bullet to and why?

    This book lives up to expectations and sets the bar higher for the next book.


    Which character – as performed by Kimberly Alexis – was your favorite?

    I love the way Anita is tough speaking guy one minute then flustered about her 'Catholic Guilt'. Although it is a common theme in the books Ms. Alexis pretrial is heartwarming and hilarious at the same time.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Not sure.


    Any additional comments?

    To really enjoy this book you really need to start at the beginning of th series then listen to all of th books.

    Story
    "the sex isn't even good anymore"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Where did the plot go? I miss the early books. I am over the whole bondage and orgy and S&M thing. I miss the Anita that we met. I feel that she got lost. I like a good sex scene, but I find myself drifting away even during them now and waiting for everyone to feed the 'ardour' so they can put their clothes back on and find some real action. And seriously if I hear how
