Buddy read with Jessica Our Anita Blake marathon continues with the fourth installment in the series, and I do have to agree with everything Jessica is saying in her review.There is absolutely no character development unless you count relationship drama as such There is absolutely nothing that would build and explain the world within the series, it just sits there with tiny hints and glimpses, but gives nothing that would satisfy a solid reader There is absolutely no cuteness and sexiness in thi [...]
A dumb girl in love with both a vampire and a werewolf This sounds slightly familiarBut, hey, this book was written first so I have a pretty good idea on who might have had the original idea I m smart like that I liked this book slightly better than the last one Anita is still pretty annoying, but I can still appreciate a few things about her.I crossed my arms on my stomach A psychologist would have said I was closed off, uncommunicative Fuck them.See, I like that In this book, we have Anita try [...]
If I had to do this review in two words, it wouldn t be a challenge Twilight Noir Okay, it s historically inaccurate, since Stephenie Meyer stole the idea from Laurel K Hamilton rather than vice versa, but apart from that it s close to the facts We have the basic Twilight scenario human woman is simultaneously in love with a vampire and a werewolf, but for bizarre reasons can t actually have sex with either of them Instead of the infuriatingly wimpy Bella, though, we have tough as nails Anita, w [...]
A Date off Seriously Oh, what has become of you John Taylor, uh, Jean Claude Hamilton tries to introduce a love triangle Tries It ends up being a dating competition, and reminds me of a poorly written sitcom Not what I would expect from a couple of super powerful, super sexy men Anita was an even bigger disappointment, relationship wise We learn that she is such a badass who doesn t date because of a bad relationship ONE bad relationship Big deal Who hasn t had their heart broken I also found it [...]
Plot 1 Client walks into Anita s office and asks her to do something She refuses.2 RELATIONSHIP DRAMA 3 Dolph calls her to the scene of the crime.4 Someone attacks Anita for no good reason.5 The most disgusting crime scene EVAH 6 MORE RELATIONSHIP DRAMA 7 Oh, crap, there s a plot we re supposed to tie up Okay, well, X does it.8 Jean Claude Richard tries to get in Anita s pants Anita makes stupid agreement.9 BIG SHOWDOWN.These books are getting formulaic I guess if the formula were a bit interes [...]
WARNING This book is twisted and brilliant Review contains certain details that are upsetting and some sexual reference is used Thus the review will touch on a few details that are disgusting and unacceptable to sensitive and closed minds If you are either of the above, please do not continue to read this review I love this book The Anita Blake series is AWESOME Unfortunately, there are a few books in this series that just flat out stink The Lunatic Cafe is most definitely NOT one of those books [...]
This book begins where the previous left off so your best bet is to read these in order so you can figure out how these tangled relationships develop into the mess that becomes Anita s love life Anita, Animator of the Dead, is seriously dating Richard the werewolf and is beginning to realize the perils of dating a monster Jean Claude her other would be beau is sticking his nose in their business because he s a jealous little vampire man and hasn t been able to woo Anita with his vampire charms a [...]
One of my first book I read that starting me reading Vampire books I remember being blown away by the female character in this book, I had never read anything like her before Also the idea of having a female character that is truly in love with two completely different men, and she is allowed to have both of them Yeah we need books like this This is really a great series, at least the first 11 books are great Way better than anything written by Stephanie Meyer HA
It s a bit sad how Hamilton has some decent storylines, but manages to deliver them so poorly and secondary that the main point of this novel is a date off between Jean Claude and Richard It doesn t really get any superfluous than this I hope Considering there are still 13 books to this series, I fear it probably will Anita went from ok, she is not Buffy, but at least she s a bit kickass to being just an ass She s completely self righteous and probably the biggest monster of them all Whenever [...]
What a treat, to find out you have a cousin who shares your reading habits My public library has this book on order and I ve been waiting for it for months While visiting over New Year s, my cousin I got discussing this series, and she sent me home with a suitcase full of reading material a happy New Year indeed.Although some aspects of the series are silly, I m enjoying it despite that I mean Anita accepts a marriage proposal from a man well, a werewolf she really barely knows and that becomes [...]
So I just finished it I have to say I ve started to not like Anita already First of all, there was hardly any Jean Claude and the bits we did get pretty much sucked How can she prefer a wolf over a vamp Reading about how Werewolves changed was pretty gross They don t just blow up into a ball of fur like in the Twilight series LOL Besides no Jean Claude, I noticed how she just kills people just because Richard noted that and although I think he sucks with her, he had a point there A gun DOES solv [...]
4.5For some reason I can t seem to get bored of this series Even , I can t wait to start the next book to see what happens D
I keep reading these books and the further I get, the I just struggle to continue This series was highly recommended from some friends I thought, what the heck and started reading The story lines are OK, the love interest are alright, but the characters drive me batty They make it really hard for me to connect and engage in the story Anita is this tough as nails chick who doesn t like help, ask for help, or respect you if you offer her help She is hard core all the way I get what the writer is [...]
Again with Richards stupid ass Like why is he here I know why but I won t say because that is a spoiler But yes, ass kicking please More Jean Claude please And can the next book go by quick so I can get to the parts of this series that made me end up getting all 25 books LIKE NOW wails

WHYYYY are these books so bad They have potential A lot of potential But instead of focusing on what is absolutely necessary in a 25 book series, namely, character development and world building, Hamilton focuses on action scenes and a whole bunch of stupid, pointless plot that keeps the story moving but gives us nothing.I finished this book less than 48 hours ago and I can hardly remember anything that happened There were a bunch of shapeshifter action scenes, lots of Anita just being a straigh [...]
Great audio performance, it really added dimension to the book.
I freely admit that I have problems with Hamilton s writing You see, she has a great gift for tense plotting and engaging writing But instead of utilizing her talents, she turns her books into ridiculous will they won t they soaps Basically, this book was all about Anita facing off Jean Claude on the one hand and mulling over Richard on the other And the back and forth of that quickly became than annoying The plot itself the search for the killer took what 60 pages Everything else was shipping [...]
So we meet Richard, we kind of like Richard I don t I do not find a fun moment with Richard at all I much rather be with Jean Claude I love the vampire I love the other shifter But I do not love Richard Also, hello Edward Who is awesomesauce Ed, I am having fun with this series so far People say that goes down hill But I reserve the right to love these books through and through I love LKH s other series and really it is getting better So keep an open mind when you read this series Entertainment [...]
DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU DON T WANT TO READ ANY SPOILERS Anita Blake has got a hot date, with Richard, the werewolf she s been dating for a few months only As she describes, they re still not very intimate, since they barely know each other But as you know, if you ve read this book, their relationship just goes really fast, way too fast in my opinion Jean Claude is still trying to interfere with their relationship, for some reason At this point I think this love triangle, turned into love square [...]
I m always in search of a good vampire story, so I read the first four Anita Blake books I think Laurell K Hamilton had a potentially interesting concept creating a world where most supernatural elements are real and integrated into society I like the concept of were insert any animal here What I don t like about Anita Blake books is Anita Blake It s hard to read books when the protagonist has an abrasive personality and nothing witty to say You can look forward to Anita s verbal confrontations [...]
I think this was my favorite so far Or maybe they are just getting better because I read them in order I would like to see Anita give in to Richard a little but she really never does and that is a major part of her character, keeping her focus Edward makes an appearance in every book so I wonder if anything romantic will happen between the two Anita is always complaining that the men in her life perusing her are all monsters so what gives.
This latest instalment of the Anita Blake vampire hunter series was an odd one I think I liked it the least of all 4 that I have read so far I found the mystery part was a bit lacking, it became a filler in between the romance love triangle issues I feel it needed than the last 20 pages to round up what was actually quite a good idea for a story It also required no sleuthing, it was a bit of a cookie cutter ending where everything fell into place a bit too neatly just so that the book could end [...]
Another ok from Hamiliton, although once again a gritty ending bringing the book up to par I was very disappointed that, after waiting for four books without any form of passion, Hamilton used beastiality as her sexual moment one word Hamilton and it is urgh They may have been shifters, but a dog and a panther doing a women is not sane reading material Maybe involve some soft lighting, candles, good musicd oh, yeaha human male next time After getting that off my chest.I m also afraid to say that [...]
Sassy Vampire Hunter Anita Blake and Sexy Jean Claude, master vampire Urban Fiction She s no nonsense and tough Great Mythology surrounding the characters You believein this world Boks 1 9 are really good 1 5 No sex in them at all Sex starts happening In the Killing Dance book 6 Then starting in Book 10 she goes from steamy to a little kinky, then its all down hill from there.
It was interesting and very good and it definitely deserved all 4 stars if Anita wasn t so fixated on showing everyone that she doesn t need anyone s help in taking care of herself, opening doors and some such every time she was talking to a man Of course she can open a door herself, but why not let someone else do it for you The crown won t fall It bugged me the whole book.
I ve never had enough of Jean Claude in Anita s books we can read so little pages about him but here I could enjoy every scene he was magnificent I m starting getting bored of her fighting him, though
Even though I love vampires and love werewolves even , I m kinda hoping she ends up with Edward He s pretty badass.
