Blood Noir's plot hinges on a very thin premise: the idea that Jason looks exactly like a pair of twins. Which leads to all sorts of confusion. Oh, and for the need to him to prove to his Dad, who is on his death bed, that he is not gay. Ummm...okay, is that really all this successful author can come up with?
After reading the previous books (cough, Danse Macabre)I am just so sick of the constant sex scenes. It seems like everything, and I do mean everything, revolves around Anita's sexual interactions. Hamilton involves Anita in scenes that, perhaps, are meant to be quite shocking but, in fact, I find them the complete opposite now! And they are not even well written. The same phrases and words pop up throughout the book which becomes very annoying, for example, 'he brought me' (cringe). To an extent this is unadvoidable in a series this long, however, I believe that the editor was too afraid to do his/her job properly with the book relying on phrases like this to bulk it up.
Oh and I do actually like Richard as a character but he has changed so drastically from the person he was first presented to be and I think that is a shame. You cant help but wonder to yourself why he even wants Anita anymore? Their ideals are worlds apart and if he was as strong a character as Hamilton makes out he just wouldn't put up with it, or rather her.
I really wanted to like this book so I am trying to find something positive about it...ummm. Oh yes, there was a bit at the end with the bad guys and Anita kicking some butt which was slightly reminiscient of the earlier books, except for it lasted approximately two or three pages.
Hope this helps.
I do not mind some sex scenes but I don't want them at the expense of a meaningful storyline and in the case of this book it was clearly an either or. I suspect that the author is under pressure to turn these around in record time and it shows. I want to know what is happening with Haven and the Lions, what has become of Valentina? Did the Cape Cod Master Vampire have to kill his wife? What of Malcolm and the church? So frustrating to pick up the series and have none of the investment made in the last few books paid off
The three whole lines of actual plot that you need to know about are reiterated in Skin Trade, so don't worry about missing anything.
Anita's character changes into some kind of "Uberslut" for this one, the plot is thin, and Richard gets annoying to the point where I actually shouted "oh for Heaven's sake just SHOOT him!"
If you like porn on the other hand....sigh, in fact, come to think of it, if you do like that sort of thing, go buy a Black Lace book, and if you like Lycanthrope porn, go buy Sherrilyn Kenyon! (The "one with Vane and Bride") - just save your money when it comes to Blood Noir - really, it's not worth the effort of turning the pages.
