What the Critics Say

"Anita's usual supporting cast is missing, and she's taking time out from her complex love life, but there's plenty of bloody action, vampires, werewolves, and Aztec ritual. Plus a lot more about Edward. Fans will find this installment similar to the earlier books in the series, particularly The Laughing Corpse." (Amazon.com review)

"[A] monstrously entertaining read." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Not the best abridgment."

    I love this series. I own all of the books and have read them multiple times. I like this narrator. But, the abridgment is painful. They left out a lot of the details that make later books and relationships make sense. I wouldn't recommend it as your only exposure to the book. I hope an unabridged version comes out soon.

    "Hate Abridged version"

    I have been reading this series and this is the first book that is in the abridged format. It just kind of ended without any closure. The next one in the series is also an abridged version... why is that, all other books are unabridge.

    "Abridged?? Really?"

    I've been enjoying this series since book 1 - all unabridged. Why suddenly is book 9 only offered in abridged?? Especially considering that the unabridged version is available via the iTunes store, really - this speaks volumes to pure greed...

    Story
    ". LKH is an in depth writer, from book 1 on!"
    If you could sum up Obsidian Butterfly in three words, what would they be?

    Wonderful character details


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Anita of course. She's slowly learning the definition of what she is, and who it makes her.


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

    In Obsidian Butterfly it has to be Ted/Edward, switching to and fro was easy to follow.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely, woke up in the morning, worked around the house. Listened on the way to and from work. Then finished by bed time.

    "Pleasantly surprised."

    I wasn't sure how I felt about Kimberly Alexis' narration in the beginning, but she definitely grew on me. Now I've moved on to Narcissus in Chains with Cynthia Holloway, and I find myself missing Kimberly...
