Bloody Bones In Laurell K Hamilton s New York Times bestselling novels Anita Blake vampire hunter and animator takes a bite out of crime of the supernatural kind But even someone who deals with death on a daily
Our Anita Blake marathon and buddy read with Jessica continues with the fifth installment in the series.Bloody Bones is the best installment so far for me, and it is mainly that because Ms Blake Anita is very strict of her being called as Ms instead of Miss, which is pointed numerous times within the story, and perhaps this is the touch of feminism I have heard so much about around the hoods is out of town, and every page is not fillet with the awkwardly awkward love triangle that is getting pre [...]
Why do I put up with you You insult me at every turn Well, LKH broke the formula with this book Anita actually TAKES a client and leaves St Louis to head to Branson, Missouri, where she is being paid to raise an entire graveyard to see who owns the property because, of course, Anita is the only one in this entire world who can do anything While she is there, she learns that something is killing young boys AND a vampire is on the loose.This book, than any of the earlier books, set my teeth on ed [...]
So, the name of this book is Bloody Bones, right Well, it is named after a restaurant in the book called Bloody Bones I have to wonder how many of us would be willing to eat at a place with that name Seriously, they need to fire the person who came up with that one, cuz yuckd mooingOh, and I found another fun fact about this book Anita actually says a word often than Nike It s Browning , and apparently it s some kind of gun that she really really likes The word Browning is in the book 45 times [...]
Anita is such a badass as usual
Although I never really learned to like Anita Blake, she was always tolerable until Bloody Bones Didn t Anita complain about all of the Were s alpha fight dominance nonsense in Lunatic Cafe Really, she is no better than the Were s here If you take out all of the I m a bigger badass than you are scenes descriptions of corny outfits, you are left with nothing than a short story Granted I do like Hamilton s story telling But at this point I feel as if I am wading through the same crap I have read [...]
The creativity that seeps into Laurell Hamilton s book is astonishing With that said, Bloody Bones is one of her books in the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series that really doesn t do it for me.There are parts of this book that make you read super fast in anticipation of how a scene will turn out Unfortunately, those scenes are few and far between in this book.Bloody Bones is a wonderful book filled with profound imagination and lingering betrayal The twists in this book are interesting, but oth [...]
Bloody Bones is one of the brutal outings in this series A huge portion of the book follows Anita Blake as she s working and this time she s called in on a case that is particularly gruesome Three teen boys are brutally slain, a young teen girl is left for dead and a young boy has been kidnapped, possibly by a deviant sexual predator of a vampire who enjoys toying with children It s dark and painful to read the grief instilled within some of these pages.Anita must also raise an entire graveyard [...]
Sab rla okuyorum , heyecanla Jean Claude bekliyorum _
4.5 Stars This is my favorite book in the Anita Blake series so far This is the first AB book that I listened to the audio of rather than reading In Bloody Bones, Anita begins to bend from her very rigid moral code, which is a good thing We learn about Jean Claude s background before he was a vamp and his beginning as a vamp Learning about JC s background makes him seem like a person, and it was sad but I also saw him as a victim I still haven t seen a reason in any of the books except maybe Gu [...]
I keep giving the series only 2 stars, yet keep reading Why Because I like the plot However, Hamilton s writing style just makes me skim through large chunks of the story until I get to the interesting bits, so it s a love hate relationship.I like the love triangle between Richard, Anita, and Jean Claude The introduction of the fey was interesting as well.Also, finally Anita is behaving like a religious person or at least so than before , although as yet she still hasn t been to church And havi [...]
Most enjoyable And she seems to be getting closer to Jean Claude Yippeee
I have enjoyed this entire series so far and this one was no exception I like that the characters are in constant motion They seem to be moving forward, even if at times it feels like they are moving slowly But it seems that by the end of the book, they have all learned something new and have adapted Usually in series, that is hard to keep up, but this author has figured that part out These have been a fun escape for me I have a couple that I hope to get to soon.
This review publishes on A Weebish Book Blog on 11 08 2017.When Anita Blake is asked to raise 300 year old zombies to settle a land dispute in Branson, Missouri, the job becomes a lot interesting than she originally expected A psychotic vampire begins committing murders in the area and Blake must call on her fanged boyfriend for help.What I enjoyed Anita Blake finally stops thinking of Jean Claude as a monster any, and finally sees him as not just a powerfully seductive vampire, but as a man Se [...]
Not half bad.
Another one done and I loved how it felt as if I was reading this for the first time.And my love Jason is now firmly in the series I love that mutt.
Ms Anita Blake and I have had a very rocky history in the short time she and I have made acquaintances For the first few books, I was absolutely enthralled with her take no prisoners attitude, her bravado, and her insistence upon keeping the monsters in check However, with The Lunatic Cafe, she became absolutely frustrating in her passionate distaste for Jean Claude That is not to say that I was not already getting annoyed with her before then with the way she was treating him when he was clearl [...]
Bloody Bones was the first of the out of town books The key with the out of town books is who comes along for the ride In this case, Jean Claude, Jason, and Larry came along Enough of the core people to keep it from feeling like one of the books that could be removed from the series without damaging the flow I d argue that Obsidian Butterfly could be removed in that way Maybe Micah , as well We also got a little bit of Richard before Anita left town, so we got both of our leading men From Circus [...]
For all the Anita Blake books I started this series with my then friend, Meredith she actually got me hooked that fateful summer of 2000 when I was living on her wooden floor in Brooklyn We were both unemployed and bored and got hooked into this series I loved Anita Blake because it was before I discovered the new genre what I like to call badass chicks who kick ass written in first person and so she was all empowering and of course there were hot vampires and werewolves in it Unfortunately, Lau [...]
Bloody Bones continues Anita Blake s non stop exploits in a book containing faerie characters and multiple story lines which added to the brilliant book The gore factor is high in this book view spoiler Anita is requested to go to Branson to raise bodies for at wealthy investor, Mr Sterling, who has interest in a piece of prime real estate to build a resort To get there Anita shared a phobia of mine in traveling by helicopter Glass bottom airborne motorcycles requires nerves beyond my capabiliti [...]
I ll admit that this book bored the heck out of me at the beginning I found myself skipping over half the chapters I didn t really care about her relationship with Larry There were a few things I liked I liked the faerie guy I like seeing Jason again, but he was a little too bratty for me this time around, I expected a different type of behavior from him I loved Jean Claude I was touched when he told Anita in a vulnerable voice it hurts when the sun came up I loved his concern for Anita when he [...]
My favorite in the series so far Hamilton s take on fairie lore made for some intriguing twists Serephina was an intriguing villain, I really enjoyed the imagery of her and her powers really made things interesting The character development was exciting for me, especially Anita s internal struggle with her mother s death, as wel as learning about Jean Claude s past The only thing that tripped me up a bit was that Jason seemed different than in the previous book this may be because he was out of [...]
Except for the excellent Rivers of London series, the last few urban fantasy books I have read have been pretty lackluster I had forgotten how kick ass the Anita Blake books are Laurell K Hamilton really has a skill highlighting the bio polar aspects of the vampires They may try and fit into modern human life and be understanding, helpful and sympathetic, but she never lets you forget that they are really horrible monsters underneath, even the good ones.This is a fast moving story with plenty of [...]
Anita Blake has been called out to an animating job in Branson, far away from her usual connections But she s the only one in the country who may be able to do it raise an entire graveyard full of 200 year old bodies, preferably in one night.As if that weren t a big enough problem, the motivations of the parties involved is far from clear and the presence of fae magic in the graveyard, and faeries willing to guard it, raises many questions.And there are vampires running amok as the neighbourhoo [...]
review by Ciara Warning possible spoilers ahead Bloody Bones follows quickly on from the action of The Lunatic Caf Fans of the French vampire Jean Claude, as wells as fans of the murder and crime and investigation that characterized the first few installments in the series, will love this book.Anita travels to Branson, Missouri to raise an entire cemetery in order to settle a dispute about the ownership of the land A property developer wants to build a high class resort, while a local man, Magnu [...]
Again like a 3.5 Good but a bit gory at times I do feel that Hamilton is beginning to shift her world rules a little here to facilitate books Anita feels weaker than in her last book I liked the twist in the final escape but Anita s final position seems a little dubious I would have felt that her experience with Seraphina might have left her a little hostile especially as she understands her own power Larry is good and we see a lot of him as are the police There is a feeling that Hamilton ha [...]
OK, OK, OK wait So I am going to say this and move on I am totally digging this series Jean Claud Just mmmmmm I usually love the werewolf.But, in this case here I want that Vampire all over lil ol me I am okey with this Anita goes out to raise a Mass grave and she ends up unleashing a big bad She needs the help of Jean Claud and his all too much sexiness I can honestly say that I love this series I think that if people read it for the entertainment that it is would like it at the very least So m [...]
Almost a four but not quiteThis is my favourite Anita Blake book so far, I felt it was funnier and much developed I liked the fact that she worked with other characters much for in this book rather than just trying to kill everyone, we learned about Jean Claude and I think Larry is really sweet.One thing I am sad about is that Dolph and the other cops aren t really in this book Also I thought that the whole issue with Xavier never really amounted to anything.
I liked this one overall because yay some finally steamy or somewhat steamy scene with Jean Claude and no Richard I like richard and all but he s no Jean Claude, and he s sometimes annoying but speaking of annoying, I got really annoyed with Anita in this book, I mean real annoyed with the way she acted with Larry, but come on, that was just a little high on the annoyance scale there.
In Gro britannien und den USA weckt der Titel des f nften Anita Blake Bandes, Bloody Bones , vermutlich ganz bestimmte Assoziationen Ich lehne mich mal aus dem Fenster und behaupte, dass deutsche Leser_innen hingegen keine Ahnung haben, welche Anspielung sich darin versteckt Im englischsprachigen Raum ist Bloody Bones als Kinderschreck bekannt, der nahe Gew ssern lebt und unartige Kinder ertr nkt Die Legende variiert nat rlich Alternativ lebt das Monster in einem Schrank unter der Treppe in neue [...]
Well, I think it s safe to say there ll never be an Anita Blake book where she doesn t get scarred 6 ways to Sunday.The reason why I didn t really like this book is because this is the game changer book, the one where Anita starts viewing Jean Claude as a beau and not that pretty, pretty vampired yet from book 1 she was hating on Jean Claude I like my characters to have msimamo dhabiti i.e a firm foundation, not one minute ooooh he s a vampire, they are monsters, then to now oooooh he s a vampi [...]
