This review is from: Danse Macabre (Anita Blake Vampire Hunter 13) (Hardcover)
As a fan I have spent the last few months waiting for this book. I wish I hadn't.
The Anita Blake books are (or have been) Vamp-kicking, paranormal investigations, raising the dead - you know interesting stuff that you can't put down and now its just all sex with random partners and boringly long chats where nothing gets resolved - in fact the series has turned into the Merry Gentry lot that I stopped reading because of this.
It starts with Anita thinking she's pregnant, she goes to the circus to meet the 'Pomme' candidates, a few people try to seduce her, she agrees to have sex with some guy she's just met, Anita uses her own power (very briefly) for once instead of the triumverate, the mother of darkness gets a couple of look ins, then its back to the sex, the ballet is interesting but its made into a bigger part of the book then needed. I must admit at points during this book I felt I had missed vital bits of information because I couldn't keep my mind on reading it - The sign of a very bad book
All in all an incredibly disappointing book from Ms Hamilton with the most interesting bit being when Anita almost kills herself. Save your money don't bother with this one.
