Blue Moon (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #8)
The Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter backlist lights up the night.
In her eighth adventure, Anita Blake can't turn her back on a former lover during the full moon. Especially since he's behind bars-and he's a werewolf...
It wasn’t until I was about 15% into the book that I remembered all of the delicious things that were awaiting me
I’m quoting a pretty large paragraph from the book, but it’s a great way to explain the relationship between Anita and h ...more
Though I did end up liking this in the end, for about the first 1/2 of the book, all of the things I don't like about Hamilton's style were out in full force. She has a tendency toward cliches, ridiculous repetitiveness (Note to Laurell K. Hmailton: ok, its the 8th book in the effing series - if we don't know certain things, we should start from the beginning, but you sure ...more

Richard's mommy gets in a bar-fight in this book and Anita has to try and stop her because Richard's brother is too afraid to stop mommy-dearest. Of course, hi ...more
I reviewed Blue Moon when I read it many years ago but I can’t find a copy and can’t remember what my thoughts were. I’m sure I thought it was “one of the best books ever” because I was still a fangirl and it features a whole hell of a lot of Richard and back then I was a fangirl of him too. Now? Eh, I can take him or leave him but that’s only because the author turned him into an alpha-hole of the worst kind and replaced him with likes of Micah and the shifter crew. But that’s a rant for a ...more
However, I feel it cheapens the series, which features a great role model in Anita as a women who has accepted ...more
Alrighty just to let people know there will be possible Spoilers in this review.

Sevgili yazar, Anita'yı yosma(Kitaptaki tabir.Ben başka bir şey derdim de neyse..) yapmak zorunda mısın ? Bu ne arkadaş! Hele o kurtların Anita'yı kovaladığı sahnede koptum. Ne için olduğunu tahmin edersiniz artık :P J.C. ile sevgili olup Richard'ın da sadece kendine bağlanmasını istemesi çok bencilceydi. Bu kitapta daha mı çok ...more
For me, this book showed to be well written with great character and relationship development among were-leopards, were-wolves and vampires.
I enjoyed not having so much Jean-Claude in this book. Richard got more time in this book which was delightful in some of the revelations of his escapades.
From trying to rescue Rich ...more
The story is good and grabbing with lots of pack and shifters stuff. However, some parts are rather dark and I'm not sure about what to think about them but I didn't feel th ...more
What is alarming about the book for some is the injection of the sexual aspect of the characters in ...more
These books have been a fun escape for me. This would have been 5 stars, but the last half brought it down a star, but I'm not complaining (except for maybe Jean-Claude didn't have a big roll in this one).
This book of Anita Blake series begins with a phone call in the middle of the night. Richard is in jail accused of rape.
When Anita comes to Tennessee to save the day, she finds more trouble than she bargained for; Richard is looking for a replace of her as his lupa, there is a munin (spirit) who won't leave her alone, she has to learn how to be the leader of her pard of wereleopards, she has to prove herself to the local pack of werewolves, there is a complot ...more
Já jen velmi výjimečně odkládám knihu, aniž bych ji dočetla. A série o Anitě Blake mě už od začátku pořádně chytla a bavila opravdu hodně. Tento díl, ale nedočtu a nemíním ani pokračovat v dalších a to kvůli Anitě (na níž to celé stojí).
Byla to jedna z těch hlavních hrdinek, kterou si buď oblíbíte, nebo ji nesnesete. A já si ji velmi oblíbila. Není ani dobrá, ani zlá, takové to správné monstrum někde uprostřed. Měla jsem ji ráda ne kvůli tomu, čím je, ale JAKÁ JE.
I know why people say the earlier books were best. And at times, I kind of agree. But then again, there are a lot reasons one could say it is even better now.
I will keep reading them, I think. Unless things suddenly take a really shocking turn in upcoming books, I don't think I will give the series away any time soon.
Blue Moon begins when Anita gets a call from Richard's brother saying he is in jail. Now, Anita will drop everything to go to Richard to help with his problems. Even though it sort of bugs her vampire lover she still must do it. But she didn't expect to end up meeting some of Richards other lovers, and have to deal with some crazy Master Vampire either.
This one was okay. But I'm still waiting for the series to get a little better. I liked some of the th ...more
