I LOVE the Anita Blake series, but I am beginning to see a trend. Authors are cheating because they are not writing fast enough. They are re-releasing old books together with other snippets and call it new. I mean it makes great revenue sense, but my gosh what a betrayal to her fans.
I already read Micah and when I read this one I was boiling mad - Micah was great reading but old news (because I already got the original), the other unwritten Anita Blake story is also old news in that it was referred to throughout the series so you already know what it was about. It's not really a story per se but a snippet of a moment in an event. Very disappointing. The rest, well they are one pagers of .... something. A story to me has to have a beginning, a middle and an end. These other short stories, well they have a flash but no beginning, middle or end.
Hence my term .... what a cheat, a cob out, a sell out.
Having said that, if you haven't read Micah or have the original book, then this is as good a buy as any.
Ms Hamilton, can you not join the other authors and do re-releases of old books in this way please? And if you are please clearly state. Calling it new stuff was just so misleading!! I had my hope totally dashed as I thought you had written another Anita story.
Well here's waiting .... waiting .... waiting .... waiting for the next one in the series after Harlequin
