Come on Ms Hamilton!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Affliction (Anita Blake Vampire Hunter 22) (Hardcover)
I started reading these books about a female corpse raider who helped the police, in the background she starts dating/meeting guys who are interested and willing to pursue. Over the last 10/12 books that has changed to almost constant sex with everything passing through, very little storey line/police investigation/zombie work, and sadly non stop emotional cra** from her partners, well Ms Hamilton if I wanted relationship drama I would watch Eastenders! (Sorry Eastenders fans but it has to be said!).
This storey line is pulling a little back towards the original (not much, but I think there were pages were no one had heart felt chats or hard sex) I think now I stick with the books hoping she'll turn back or kill everyone off. Worth reading to stay in the loop but otherwise is very similer to the last 3.
Oh and if Ms Hamilton does get to see this - I stopped reading the Merry Gentry series because of the boringly long pages and pages of sex with every creature and no story line that didn't have to do with the Fey throne, I started reading that series for the fairy private eye angle and loved the first book. Please stop writing S&M and get back to stories with a plot.

Ha ha found a review of book 13 I wrote 6/7 years ago says it all really - 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.
