Book Description

Jun 2010 Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter (Book 19)

The sensational new novel from the New York Times bestselling author featuring her vampire-hunting heroine Anita Blake.

I am back in St Louis and trying to live a normal life - as normal as possible for someone who is a legal vampire executioner and a US Marshal. I have my lovers, my friends and their children, school programs to attend. In the midst of all this ordinary happiness a vampire from my past reaches out. She was supposed to be dead, killed in an explosion, but the Mother of All Darkness is the first vampire, the dark creator, and it's hard to kill a god. She has reached out to me here - in St Louis, home of everyone I love most. She has decided she has to act now or never, to control me, and all the vampires in America.

The Mother of All Darkness believes that the triumvirate created by master vampire Jean-Claude with me and the werewolf Richard Zeeman has enough power for her to regain a body and to emigrate to the New World. But the body she wants to possess is already taken; I'm about to learn a whole new meaning to sharing my body, one that has nothing to do with the bedroom. And if the Mother of All Darkness can't succeed in taking over my body for herself, she means to see that no one else has the use of it, ever again. Even Belle Morte, not always a friend to me, has sent word: 'Run if you can...'

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty bad with a few good bits 2 Jun 2010
Format:Hardcover
I was really looking forward to this book. After the last novel where we saw a lot less gratuitous sex and much more of the old fashioned hard boiled Anita I was really hopeful about this one. But I was pretty disappointed when I finally read it the first 150 pages or so where slow and while I'm pretty sure there were a few little gems of real character development in there you really had to dig to get to them, All in just a bit pointless.

Then after that it was probably the low point of the whole series, a rather long winded discussion about sex and the emotional problems of several characters that was felt both slow, unnecessary and was a little uncomfortable to read. It was all just a very poor start to the book. I think that by this point in time we understand that the author wants to challenge traditional sexuality but I think she has made her point pretty clear by now and I really wish if she wanted to write erotica she could have done it in another series and left the well loved hardboiled Vampire hunter with a little dignity. It's not that developing the sexual side of the main character is a bad thing because its not its the fact that its just WAY overdone. To the point where our favorite vampire hunting US Marshall now apparently works from home via teleconference.

In contrast the last half of the book seemed to have most of the return of the plot which was actually not all that bad if again you cut out some of the extra sex scenes. And I actually felt the last half of the book had all the best bits of the story crammed in between all the gratuitous sex scenes. We saw some good plot building here and some nice non-sex related character development and done in a more understandable setting than the superfluous dance recital in the beginning.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring 5 Jun 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Sigh. I have purchased my books from Amazon for many years and this is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review.

This book was dire. Everything I loved about the series has gone - I miss Anita Blake the animator and vampire hunter but I accept now that she is gone for good. I found it tough going to actually finish the book because it could not hold my attention. Even now, I couldn't tell you what the plot was. Or if there was one. I'm pretty convinced that by now LKH is the only one who knows what is going on with all of the metaphysical references because, honestly, she lost me a couple of books ago.

Although not my cup of tea, I can deal with long-haired, pretty, effeminate men; questionable fashion sense (copius amounts of leather and over the knee boots, anyone???)and Anita being the Queen of everything, ever and the best at everything, ever. I love reading and what I can't deal with is my supposedly pleasurable pastime being turned into something boring and tedious.

After 19 books, I won't be buying any more in this series. That's it - I'm done.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bullet to the brain 2 Jun 2010
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Ruthless murders, treachery and a potential civil war among the vampires. Can it be... plot returning to the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series?

In a word... no. Laurell K. Hamilton's infamous Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series is obviously running on fumes in its nineteenth book, "Bullet" -- she just strings along one messy subplot after another, and tacks on some magical orgies and bickering about feelings to beef it up. It's like being shoved headfirst into a steaming pot of rancid bodily-fluids.

After a dance recital that has nothing to do with ANYTHING, Asher throws a fit over the fact that everybody is getting some man-loving except him. Can't say I blame him.

The obvious solution is to talk about people's feelings, then have an S&M foursome with Richard, Anita and Jean-Claude -- which is interrupted by a pair of far more powerful vampires who are trying to destroy Anita. It seems the supervampire Marmee Noir is not quite dead, and has apparently possessed the entire Vampire Council and is preparing to attack Anita and Co.

But instead of dealing with that, Anita makes some phone calls and then starts an all-out battle with the local werelion Rex, who has annoyed her in some vague way. To make matters worse, somebody has put a contract out on Anita and her vast harem, and there's a rotting Master of the City who's causing trouble.

In theory, "Bullet" has a plot. But once you actually sit down and read it, you'll find that the "plot" is just a string of sloppy subplots that have nothing to do with each other. It's just a big, messy, incoherent stew of S&M sex, wangst, whining, sexist snipes and Anita generating new powers like a gumball dispenser.

And honestly... it's BORING.

1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely disappointed 25 Jun 2010
Format:Hardcover
I was very disappointed in this book. It didn't go anywhere. Just as it seemed to be getting interesting there was a very abrupt end. I've read all of the previous books and stuck with them but I have to say the sex scenes are getting extremely tedious so much so that I glossed over them. A bit more action would have been good with more of a plot. Very, very disappointing. I won't be buying any more I'm fed up waiting for a decent storyline to come along. I'll be going to the library next time that way I won't feel cheated out of my money.
