I like the Anita Blake novels, well I like most of them but recently they seem to be alternating between one good 'old style' novel involving the Anita of books 1-15ish and then we have something that looks like an exercise in relationship dynamics/fantasy wish fulfillment for romance novelists. This belongs in the latter camp but no doubt will appeal to those who like Anita 2.0. Sadly I am not an Anita 2.0 fan just as I am not a Merry Gentry fan as that contains much the same issues for me. I somehow feel that writing 'old style' Anita books does not do it for Ms Hamilton anymore and hey everyone has the right to get bored. I will remain a fan/buyer but am hoping the next book will be more of a traditional Anita novel or alternaively maybe its time for the big kiss goodbye to Anita??
