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.
Loved this book like all the first ten or eleven Anita books before she became a who're.
probably the slowest of the books. i love the way kimberly alexus reads it. anita is as awsome as ever
Would you try another book from Laurell K. Hamilton and/or Kimberly Alexis?
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.
Sound effects take away from the story and are distracting from the story. For sure not needed
Great storyline welcome the opportunity to learn more about Edward and Anita's views and feelings about Ted vs. Edward.
I think this was best to date. Love the way hamilton is so detailed in her writting.
stop asking me for a review twenty words long six five four three two one.
this is a good good v bad story. of the audio version of the series this is my favorite, mostly because of Edward .
great suspense thriller mixed with crime solving and preternatural horror. The perfect mix to have a villainous hero! The only annoying side to this performance is the cheesy music that pops in at predictable times. its obnoxious enough to distract from the seriousness of the story. other than that, this book excellent!

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.
