Book Description

When Anita Blake meets with prospective client Tony Bennington, who is desperate to have her reanimate his recently deceased wife, she is full of sympathy for his loss. Anita knows something about love, and she knows everything there is to know about loss.

But what she also knows, though Tony Bennington seems unwilling to be convinced, is that the thing she can do as a necromancer isn't the miracle he thinks he needs. The creature that Anita could coerce to step out of the late Mrs. Bennington's grave would not be the lovely Mrs. Bennington.

Not really. And not for long.

3.0 out of 5 stars Narcissistic Novella 2 Feb. 2010
This book does not live up to the high standard of the first nine Anita Blake books. That said, it is refreshing to read about Anita's career as a necromancer again. With all the toyboys she's been getting lately we haven't heard too much about her work.

This is a short book, it took me about 2 hours to read. The plot did not strike me as being original - Anita has starred in far too many kidnap scenes in the past and brings nothing new to them now. The 'Tony Bennington' character reminded me forcefully of the Harold character in the Laughing Corpse.

Without spoiling the plot of this book for others, it pivots on the fact that men find Anita irresistable, yet she herself finds this hard to accept. Its getting somewhat tired and overworked as a format.

Disappointing, but mildly so.

3.0 out of 5 stars For fans only 5 Feb. 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was an avid reader of the Anita Blake books when they were supernatural thrillers but my interest tailed off when they changed to soft porn. It was almost as if Laurell K Hamilton was told to spice them up a bit and didn't know when to stop. I decided to give this one another chance based on the synopsis and was somewhat pleased to discover only one sex scene lasting only seven pages, but there again the story is only 155 pages long. On that note nothing much happens for almost the first fifty pages, I know this is aimed at a female audience who like a little more character interraction but pages devoted to Anita and her lovers chatting in a restaurant is just padding in my eyes. When the action does get going the writing is up to the usual standards and it was nice to see Anita operating on her own for a change. It would be even better to see her having an all new action adventure with no sex in it, how about a prequel? Back when she wasn't a promiscuous tart. The book is rounded out by a short section where Laurel explains how the story came about, shouldn't have bothered, doesn't add anything.

1.0 out of 5 stars If you expect a full length novel STOP here 28 Feb. 2010
By anne
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is NOT full length - its more on the lines of a novella .(over 20 pages wasted on how the idea for the book was arrived at!!!!)
This should have been made clear to buyers .
The story has no depth and glosses over the characters relationships .
Would not buy without checking number of pages in future

2.0 out of 5 stars Sorry I bothered. 27 Oct. 2010
I stopped reading the Anita Blake series a while ago when they became interchangeable to me - about the same time that the 'ardeur' became synonymous with 'let's have sex with as many people as possible'. I much prefer a monogamous relationship in books anyway, but due to Laurell K Hamilton's engaging writing style, I only stopped reading when every book seemed to add new sexual partners to the list.
I thought I'd give this a try because it was so short that it wouldn't mean as much wasted time if it turned out to be a complete mistake: which it wasn't. The annoying thing is that I still really enjoy the writing, it's just what's been written that I take objection to. Firstly, the plot is hardly original - nor SO well written that that fact can be overlooked. Secondly, I think that someone who has a harem of gorgeous men of all descriptions willing to put up with sharing her with the other gorgeous men should probably stop being so 'humble'. At first it's an endearing character trait which allows the average reader to identify with her, but in the end it just becomes really frustrating. My third and final grievance is the comic strip at the back; yes, the comic strip which somehow manages to be completely pointless, and yet simultaneously to sum up a hefty chunk of the plot.

I would recommend really only recommend this to ardent fans of the series. Hamilton's easy style can carry readers quickly through books double this size, but does not make up for an almost complete lack of plot.

3.0 out of 5 stars Anita - short but not too sweet 4 July 2010
Something of a mixed addition to the Vampire Hunter's story in this novella as, kidnapped by a group of mercenary were-lions, Anita is faced with the choice conducting an illegal zombie raising with a human sacrifice, or allowing her lovers to be murdered. Naturally, neither choice is acceptable to our favourite necromancer, and she has to use all her powers and skills to keep her men safe and her soul intact.

There are both strengths and weaknesses to a story in a shorter form: with less space to work with Ms Hamilton avoids the shapeshifter politicking and ardeur which has tended to bog down some of the more recent full-length novels; but, equally, there's little time to develop anything, and the final denouement is disappointingly reminiscent of that of The Laughing Corpse. Nevertheless, this is a reasonable read for a quick Anita fix, and it does introduce a couple of characters who will have a role in Bullet, and who might otherwise present something of a puzzle.

The final part of this slim volume, though, is taken up with an account by Ms Hamilton of the creative process and inspiration which led her to write the story. Again, this is somewhat mixed: if you are interested in where an author gets her ideas, and how she uses them to create a story, this will be worthwhile; but if you just want a good read, you may end up wishing that she'd put the energy into writing a longer book, instead.

Overall, then, while this is a must for die-hard Blake fans, more casual readers might prefer to give it a miss, and skip straight to the next full-length novel.
