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.

©2010 Laurell K. Hamilton (P)2010 Penguin

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)

    "Awesome love Anita Blake books"

    The only thing that would make Anita Blake books better is if Kimberly Alexis would Narrate the whole series.

    "Love the storyline... BUT...."
    Would you try another book from Laurell K. Hamilton and/or Kimberly Alexis?

    Yes


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Obsidian Butterfly?

    There are too many things to list. But first thing that comes to mind is I would delete all of the unnecessary descriptions.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm actually frustrated with this series. The first book I enjoyed a lot then each book after that I began to get more and more irritated with the extra descriptions of the sky and the houses and the floors and the rooms and etc. and I definitely did not like the music or sound effects. Unfortunately this is the last book I will listen to in the series. I found myself fast forwarding through so much that I'm sure I missed some crucial details but I just couldn't bear listening to all the descriptions. I honestly was not interested if the grass was green or not water properly or if the trees were tall or short. If the carpet was red or blue if the house was painted white or yellow. There were points I fast forwarded thru 3-5 mins of describing a certain area. This is the second series that I started listening to and had to stop because I would say 40% of the book was just filled with descriptions of everything around them and it was just quite frankly too much.

    "Great story could do without sound effects"

    Sound effects take away from the story and are distracting from the story. For sure not needed
