Publisher's Summary

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.

Love in vein: listen to more tales of Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter.

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)

    "Loved it all but the sound effects"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Good detail


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

    Yes. She is always great.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it all but the sound effects. They were distracting and annoying. The story is good enough to stand on it's own without them.

    "Not too keen on the music"

    I get that the music playing at certain points is supposed to set the mood but honestly its distracting. It's miss placed or too loud and it's just stock stuff anyway. I could have done without it.

    Story
    "A second time around"

    I have been going through this series for the 2nd time. Glad I did. The first time I stopped because I couldn't like Micah. on the second go around I have come to understand his role in Anita's life as well as Nathaniel's. I realize because of her connection to Jean Claude, she needs these people in her life (as well as the sex). Though in some of the books the sex is "too much" and I get a feeling of "get on with the story, " this time around I can see the purpose behind it. OB was a great read, more action than usual. My only complaint is that after this book there are many missing from the series in audio version. I don't know why, but in a 24 book series to just stop putting out the audio versions until book 17 is kind of...crap!

    Story
    "A Gem of the Series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Obsidian Butterfly to be better than the print version?

    I have to say that no audio book seems better than actually reading a great book for the first time. However, Audible use of the perfect narrator and well placed special audio effects is fantastic. I love the narrator for this series Kimberly Alexis, she is perfect voice for Anita Blake.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Anita is the best obviously. However, if you exclude her I love Obsidian Butterfly, she makes such a good character. Is she a villain? Friend or Foe? Plus, Edward is amazing, he is the kind of guy you need on your side when you are neck deep in vampires/monsters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love the scene when Anita is full of Obsidian Butterfly's power, that whole lead up is great, i remembered reading it for the first time and I was engrossed. Listening to these books after having read them already is a real treat. It is like rediscovering my favorite guilty pleasure all over again.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Instant cult classic! A must see for vampire lovers, and fantasy enthusiast of every flavor. A true gem in the Anita Blake vampire series, and one of the best vampire books of all time!


    Any additional comments?

    I think that this book, the Harlequin, Affliction, and of course Hit List are a few of my favorite titles in this series.
