Critic Reviews

"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)

Anita?

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.

My favorite of the series

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.

Sound Effects?

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.

Favorite

So far this book is my favorite in the series. I didn't get bored once. I'm not going to say that I'm thrilled with the ending, but I don't want to spoil anything so I'll remain silent. Can't wait for the next one.

Sound effects

I enjoyed the story. The story line is good and action packed but the sound effects are aggravating and nerve wracking

a strange story

as a whole it's not bad story but the characters make some odd twists with very little explanation. Anita choices as a whole seem to make less sense then they've had in previous books. as stated before not bad but a bit of a messy ending.
