Affliction

I have read all the Anita Blake books. All of them. I really enjoyed the first ones, where Anita is battling against what she wants, and who she wants, and who she is. Where the bad guys make sense, and she has to really fight, to use all the resources at her disposal to win. When did that stop happ ...

Seduced by Moonlight

Somewhere along the line Laurel K. Hamilton completely changed her writing style. I've been a fan of hers since the first Anita Blake book, but unfortunately, I don't think the recent change has been positive. Don't get me wrong, I've enjoyed the previous Meredith Gentry books and continue to read ...

Cerulean Sins

Well, there's good news, great news, and unfortunatly some bad news to accompany Laurell K Hamilton's latest release. The good news is that there's a plot and it's better than Narcissus in Chains. The great news is that there's barely any Micah at all, which had me jumping for joy. But there's som ...

A Caress of Twilight

There are three points I want to make up front about A Caress of Twilight. The first is that this book is a fast-paced, action-packed read that will keep you riveted to the story to find out what happens next. The second point is that this book is not a romance. It has a cast of really sexy "men" an ...

Narcissus in Chains

I've always found Diana Gabaldon's quote on the Anita Blake covers highly apropos. Despite their different subjects, Gabaldon's and Laurell K. Hamilton's styles resonate strongly. Both are phenomenally gifted storytellers, a double-edged sword because the hands of a great storyteller are seldom ...

Narcissus in Chains

"Yes, it's long and yes, there are spoilers, but I'm aiming this review at fans of the series, people on the sidelines about whether or not to read it and those who've already read it. Mary's review already sold the book, mine is questioning its place in the series." -- Jennifer Schendel When Ma ...

Obsidian Butterfly

When I read a long series like the Anita Blake or the J. D. Robb In Death books, I find there will be a few books I re-read once in a while, a couple that I hardly ever go back to, and a couple of books that just knock it out of the park. These are the books I take in my purse, the books I keep pull ...

The Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter Series

Why I'm Obsessed with Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter I’ve heard confession is good for the soul so, in the interests of soul improvement, I’ll confess that I’m afraid of the dark and the things that might go bump in it. You know, ghoulies and ghosties and long legged beasties? Intellectually, I k ...

Jordan's Heart

Jordan’s Heart tells the story of a Boston scholar who loves a Colorado rancher. The most unexpected thing about it is the fact that Jordan is the name of the heroine, not the hero. Jordan Alcott has striven her entire life to win her archaeologist father’s approval, by fol ...

Guilty Pleasures

Be warned: the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series is not for the faint of heart. I have to say that, because I've read Kim Newman and Elaine Bergstrom and other vampire stories, and I still cringed at times as I read Guilty Pleasures. The continuing saga of the very normal woman who chooses to make ...
