a much better book in her 'Blake' series, I almost didn't bother to read this one due to the previous books sorta went nowhere for me and I really enjoyed it. I recommend this one and am glad I picked it up.

Edward was always my favourite character, so I'm happy to read more about him. It's good to see the series has moved away from erotica, which was so not the reason i read AB. After this one, finding an even bigger, badder boogieman will become difficult, so i am hoping we'll not fall back into soap opera relationship woes etc. I'd rather see the series end than go back to Richard and his picket fence issues... Olaf may present a challenge, but really he shouldn't be after mommy dearest or chimera... Well, we'll see what rabbit pops out of LKHs hat next time...

Glad to see Anita getting back to her U.S. Marshal's job. Exciting and sets the stage for future books.

I love this book! This will be my 2nd favorite next to Obsidian Butterfly. Edward is one of my favorite characters and I love the character development and the relationship development between Edward and Anita throughout the series. This book wasnt back to the basics IMHO because of everything that has happened to Anita to make her who she is now, it will never be basics again. I do agree that the ending was too fast and easy (no spoilers :P ) but I am putting my faith in LKH that it is not the last we will hear about it. My favorite thing about this book, and I am sad to say it, but, is the sex scenes, or lack there of :) There was still lots of talk about sex and the Ardour but the sex scene when you get down to it was short, simple, sweet, and normal. (well as normal as Anita can make it) All in all, I really enjoyed this book and am happy it is as back to basic as possible!

I really enjoyed this book, I always like it when Edward appears in the books. However, I still only gave it 3 stars because it covered a lot of the same territory and the ending was too pat. Hopefully, the next book will be the final confrontation between Anita and Olaf. I've liked this series, I even like all the sex scenes and plot thread, but I get impatient when the main characters never fix their issues. Anita has gotten over a lot of stuff, but I'm a bit tired of hearing how she's not respected because she sleeps with the monsters and/or because she's a small woman, how she's tired of looking at the death, etc etc. I appreciate all of that, but I'm tired of seeing it in every book lately. Do something different, change your circumstances, or get over it! I would love to see more focus back on her necromancy.

Anyway, overall I enjoyed this book. More focus back on her role as marshal, Edward and the gang back and fun (lol, rocket launcher) action.

Less bad sex scenes. I mean do people use that dialogue even in fantasy? And more crime solving...kind of. This was really just the same old same old. Much too much like Obsidian Butterfly. The resolution is much too swift and easy.

LKH has certainly has shown us the many faces of Anita Blake and her compatriots. This was a really strange book because it doesn't fit in with the growth of the series. Although Anita acquires a new bed buddy, there is comparatively very little action between the sheets, the story is focused on catching the bad guy, mommy dearest. I think the defeat of the main antagonist was too easy and lame. Plus, then she ties up the lives of her and her possy in a pretty little bow.

This book is good if you ignore the sex scenes. Edward is back with Olaf and B?? the Indian.
