Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read. ~Attributed to Groucho Marx
The sex was toned down, there was not an orgy on every other page. What I liked least was the way Anita described everything, from brown eyes like hers, the men are all too beautiful. There need to be some real people in the book.
Maybe its time for Anita to move along.
Too much repetition, all of her lovers have long flowing hair and great bodies, and everyone falls in love with Anita, it’s boring, I miss the days of the Necromancer , when she had a job to do or a case to solve, now it seems as if the whole world is either out to kill Anita or sleep with her. This book was better than the last 3-4 books and I hope they keep getting better. Audible also needs to get rid of the music and silly sound effects; a good story does not need them. Ms Hamilton also needs to stop with Anita wanting to be one of the boys, but crying when someone hurts her feelings, just because a woman works with men does not mean she has to become one, either Anita is a woman or she is not, the character is supposed to be so strong but she keeps comparing herself to the men she works with, it’s silly and weak.
I'm SOOOOOO glad that the author returned to the style of the earlier Anita Blake books. More excitement with her investigating a case and less of the sexcapades and orgies of the last several books. For awhile the books seemed to be more about explicit sex scenes than anything else. I also love that Edward was a big player in this book, but I would have liked to hear a little more about Jean Claude.
It's so good to dive back into Anita's world. The book is the usual Laurell K. Hamilton dose of sex, violence, and butt kicking Anita! But this is the first audiobook I've heard of this series and I need to commend Kimberly Alexis for doing such a fantastic job. The sound effects are fantastic! I really look forward to hearing more from her!
I need my books to stay sane! Love, love, love my book time!!
It has been at least 1 year since I listened to any of the Anita Blake books. Once I started listening to this one, I realized that once it was over, I would just have to start listening to the entire series again!!
I love Edward!!! I have always enjoyed the books with him in them.
Awesome book! Reminded me of the Anita Blake that was in the beginning of the series.
I have been addicted to the Anita Blake series since I read the first few books in as many days but I have to admit they went off the wall a bit ... This is one of the few later ones I really enjoyed and didn't skip through half of ... And the performance made it even better
This delightful story goes well this reader. I find the Anita Blake stories so much fun. With this narrator it is even more fun.
Another confrontation with the mother of all Darkness, a new golden tiger/ lover, adventures with Edward / Ted Forester, and being a female Federal Marshal.
Love it! Too short, wish the story ending was more descriptive. More detail of what happened to the Mother of Darkness.
I found this very typical Anita Blake very satisfying in all respects. It was great bringing all the characters back into one book and finally bringing to a close the darkest one.
Although most of the action is towards the end of the book it is worth the read.
Anita's conflicts between her faith and her her role as vampire "bride" finds a kind of resolution in her experience. She continues to be challenged by what she thinks her typical role as a female is and what she finds to be true between her role as woman and the roles as male of the men in her life. Romance is not confined to women.
