Love in vein: listen to more tales of Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter.
©2009 Laurell K. Hamilton; (P)2009 Penguin
"Anita Blake, vampire hunter, is now herself a hunted woman. Who put the $500,000 price on her head - a man or a monster? It's not just her own skin she needs to save; the rivalry between her werewolf boyfriend, Richard, and Marcus, the other alpha werewolf in his pack, has come to full boil. And there's always Jean-Claude, the vampire who's been waiting for just the right moment to slip inside Anita's head and heart. Don't assume anything, though - Hamilton's probably got a few more surprises in store." (Amazon.com review)
I enjoyed this book more than her earlier ones, and much much more than her later ones. I enjoy going back and reading the Anita Blake series up until about Blue moon...and just lost interest in the direction she had taken. Out of all this has to be my favortie one though.
The only word can use is WOW!!!!!!!!!
The scene with Anita and John-Claude in the bathroom.
When Anita wanted to save both Richard and John-Claude
This is a MUST read book!
First let me say, I loved this book and this narrator. Unfortunately I HATE the narrator they replaced Kimberly Alexis with in the more recent releases. Audible in it's infinite wisdom will not set up a way for me to get those books out of my "recommendations based on previous ratings". Because I rated the early books so highly they feel that they HAVE to recommend the later books in the series based on those ratings. I've emailed Audible asking for a fix for this and got no response. At this point I don't think there is one book in my recommendations that I haven't already read/purchased someplace else or that I cannot stand the new narrators. So in order to get some new recommendations had to go back and trash a whole bunch of books that I love. This truly sucks and is something I did NOT want to do. I'm blaming this on Audible.
Captivating, intriguing, sexy
Great voice with the ability to draw the listener in. Portrays a different voice for each character!
The sound effects
It's a great read i love this books.
I love this books i have have most of them in hard back. The only thing that makes me mad is u can't find 5 of the books in the series narcissus in chains, cerulean sins, incubus dreams, micah, and danse macabre.
I really enjoy the narrator (Kimberly Alexis) without whom the story would have been good but nearly and memorable.
I thought that "the Killing Dance" was similar to Mistral's Kiss. Both had the same feel to them. Almost too much a like.
Anita of course with a close 2nd as Johan-Clud
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!
Doing more then a couple hours of driving a day in rush hour traffic, this is my cure to Road Rage! lol Well... I don't get Road Rage but I had never been a fan of stop and go traffic. These Audio Books make it so I don't mind at all, in fact I sometimes feel I get home too quickly and have to sit in the car for another 5 minutes until I get to a part I can feel good about pausing. hehe Group Hugz
I really like this book. It's one of my favorite in the series and I had an extra credit so I thought I'd listen to it. The narrator isn't bad. She does Jean Claude in a good French accent, which surprised me. I did NOT like the sound effects. They took away from the dialog and made me think of B-movie suspense moments and bad porno music. It doesn't ruin it, but i was glad I read the book before I listened to it.
I listened to all 6 in order. I was suprised by Anita's choice and maybe a little disappointed. I suppose it is a matter of opinion. Overall very entertaining.
