There are a lot of monsters in Anita Blake's life. And some of them are human. One such individual is the man she calls Edward, a bounty hunter who specializes in the preternatural. He calls her to help him hunt down the greatest evil she has ever encountered - something that kills and maims and vanishes into the night. Something Anita will have to face alone.

What made the experience of listening to Obsidian Butterfly the most enjoyable?

I'm a fairly new listener of Anita Blake series (i'm currently on book 10 Narcissus in Chains) and I have to say that this was not as good as the others one were. Overall it was a good book, but I've become so accustomed to the Anita Jean Claude and Richard triangle that not having it in this book kind of set me off. Overall the storyline was good and we got to see a lot more Anita action independent from her growing "new and improved" abilities.

What does Kimberly Alexis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I looooove Kimberly Alexis. I'm saddened to hear that after this book some other person is Narrating. Not sure how exactly I will get accustomed to that change but I guess I won't have a choice. Right now I'm actually reading "Narcissus in Chains" book 10 and it is definitely different and sort of difficult for me. I miss Kimberly's voice because she gives the story life and she manages jumping from character to character so easily and well. I find it difficult to read Jean Claude's parts in Narcissus in Chains because I sort of forget what his voice is like in my head. :(

Any additional comments?

I'm sick and tired of Anita being so ridiculous sometimes. She needs to cut the crap and just stay with both of them. I hate that she loves Richard and isn't afraid to admit it, but Jean Claude she is always hesitant about. She loves them both, but she is always so weird about her feelings for Jean Claude, it makes me so maaaad!!!!
