If you've read the previous Anita Blake books, you've read this one. The themes are exactly the same ie. "am I a monster because I kill people?" "I push away men in my relationships"etc. Even some of the internal dialogue sounds lifted from previous books. The story is predictable also. Anita is trying to do her job when some big monster appears to make mischief. She is out of her depth but brave nonetheless. The cops don't trust her because she's sleeping with many man but in th end she proves her self with excellent "guy talk" and generally just being a badass.
Summed up; Yawn yawn, neediness, neediness plus kinky sex scene. Oh yey We've saved the day plus our 1 girl plus 6 men relationship has inched on a little further. Hoorah.
The zombies are more plausible than the human interactions in this book.

Format: Hardcover
More of a rant than a review I'm afraid.

Am I the only one who notices that this series is turning into the Merry Gentry series? Perhaps Laurell should have continued with that series if she wanted to write badly written, non-erotic, erotica? Am I the only one that notices that Anita is also turning into a looks obsessed girly girl? What happened to the black jeans and Nikes? Why do we have to know that she is wearing a thigh holster under her short little skirt and pretty colored jacket? Because, let's admit it - We all know how it is just so darn easy to kick zombie, shape-shifter and vampire butt when wearing a mini skirt, jacket and high heels now don't we? Why do we put up with these sorts of details? Was it more important to be thinking about hair length than to think about how to tell Micah horrible news about his family? When the heck did Anita get triple-E cup breasts? And, how did she never once fall over from the weight of them on her tiny little slim figure?

------------->SPOILERISH<---------------------
This book started off with a bang - with a new disease that started out on the East Coast making its way westward and lodging itself firmly in Anita's world. You need to read (in the Kindle Edition) nearly 40 percent of the book before anything besides relationship angst and some peeing contest hi-jinks with the other cops, happen. That is just plan sad. However, what action there is is quite exciting, except that Anita makes some bone-headed moves. But then again, she is in a sort of "heat' and Nathaniel is in his full form , thus tempting her beyond the ability to stay standing - so maybe that explains the fact that she led everyone into a dangerous situation. And isn't it just really sad that even during the action, Anita's sex life take precedence?

Format: Hardcover
Does everybody in the US talk as if they're in a psychoanalysts discussion group all the time or is it just Ms Hamilton? I'm surprised they can get anything done in between all the angst, whining, earnest understanding and endless discussion of each others entire life history, inner most thoughts, feelings and motivations, including people they've just met. I wonder if all the evil trigger happy cops just know what they're going to have to listen to if they don't shoot the monsters on sight-I'd be tempted to fire before they could open their mouths too!
EEE boobs? Don't know whether to laugh or cry.
I suspect there is a hat with the label 'see if they'll swallow this' on it and bits of paper with the most ludicrous plot lines and cringe making 'things her men and newest acolytes can say to Anita' in it and somewhere an editor has a contract signed in blood agreeing to use at least 10 of these bits of paper per book.
The actual story inbetween the whining and bonking is fine and would be so much better off without the bilge that buries it almost without trace.
Comment on Edward/Ted's behaviour in this book is probably unprintable-I'm looking forward to Olaf's flower arranging group and macrame classes in the next book. By this time Anita will have a quadruple G cup and the ability to fart rainbows as flowers sprout from the now hallowed ground she has trodden upon.....
