Laurell's books are full of strange events. I like this book very much, but the very best part is the first. Is Anita pregnant? An answer that arouses all sort of feelings. I think Anita only feels badly about that, but she is right. How can be the life of a child with this "problems" around? We know now that the Mother searches for Anita's power and she is weaking. We also know that Asher would be JC's lover but Anita has problems with that. Asher is the revelation of the book. I don't like the end. It finished without a very real end. We'll see in the next book....Continua
It all went downhill so quickly in this series. The first few books were good solid entertainment. Plenty of action and fairly decent characters. But now they are all merely vehicles for Anita to have sex with as many people as she can. And to top it all they are badly written as well. Thank god I got this one from the library and didn't shell out actual cash for it.
This may be the worst of this verse that I've read so far. I'm trying to think what the plot might be, only there isn't one, everything happens over the course of a few days, and really the "everything" is sex and poorly written screaming matches with characters sometimes repeating, word for word, what a difference character informed us of earlier.
And yet I finished it. And may even read the next in the series; I did see it when I was in the library. So from that perspective Hamilton has done a good job. But from the perspective of writing a good story she has failed. There is no story, there is simply her Mary Sue screaming. Sometimes because she's scared. Sometimes because she is angry. And often because she is having "midblowingly awesome" sex with various vampires and shapeshifters. Basically she screams a lot.
Plus, there is no horror in these stories any more, and there is certainly no mystery. ACtually that isn't true, there is a mystery, why I continue to read them.
