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.

    "Downward slope"

    Hamilton used to be one of my favorite authors. I started with the Anita Blake series and fell in love with the stories...and then the sex started and seemed to open some kind of pandora's box for sex thereafter. I kept thinking every time I bought her new books for the series "Maybe this one will be different...maybe she'll have some amazing twist and get back to the main story here." Then I read it and fight not bang my head on the desk. I mean seriously, is she going to add another sex partner EVERY book?! I think Anita has plenty, enough already! And I agree with some of the reviews, the men are starting to act like Anita's male-harem.
    The narrator didn't help either. She made most of the men sound like unintelligent surfer wannabes. The only saving grace was the men with french accents. I really liked how she actually gave them the accents and really brought out the character.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Too much sex, not enough story."

    Earlier works are better, storyline are more developed. Felt like she was trying to meet a deadline.

    Story
    "What the HECK did I miss?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If Mrs. Hamilton had not changed the Anita Blake character; all the added lovers made the character too promiscuous and changed to tone of the series. Obsidian Butter left me anxious and disappointed that so many of the books in the series were missing (Audible jumps from Obsidian Butterfly to Bullet #19). I couldn't wait, so I order "Bullet". After listening for a while, I was like Huh? What happened to Anita?
    I screamed: "Laurell done turned Anita into the Whore of Babylon, lol!"


    What was most disappointing about Laurell K. Hamilton’s story?

    I have purchased and listened to the first 9 books of this series in less than 2 weeks. . Anita a woman of class and strength, who kept us reader on pins and needles waiting to see who would be her first lover, Richard or Jean Claude. I loved that she had moral standards,and that she blushed. I am 3 hours into this book and I find out that her character has multiple sex partners. Dang, I hate that Mrs. Hamilton turned Anita into a slut. The male characters have become too feminine to enjoy. Uggghhhh! I was really enjoying these books!


    Have you listened to any of Kimberly Alexis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Kimberly Alexis, ROCKS! She made the characters come alive.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I am returning this book!


    Any additional comments?
