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
Anita Blake is woken in the middle of the night by a call from Daniel, Richard's younger brother. It appears while Richard was in Tennessee studying trolls and such for his master's thesis that he has been thrown in jail for rape. Anita immediately comes to the rescue, along with Asher, Damien, Jason, Jamil, Cherry, and a few other were's, against the explicit orders of the Master of the City, Colin. Can Anita clear Richard's name, keep her troop alive, and...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.
both Anita's men were kinda douches in this book. at the start anita drops everything to run to richard to get him out of jail on false charges and the first thing he tells her...more
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
What is alarming about the book for some is the injection of the sexual aspect of the characters in...more
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.
This time, Anita is called in to save Richard, her ex-fiance, who has wound up in jail on rape charges. They might be on the outs, but Anita doesn’t believe for a second that Richard is capable of what he has been charged with.
This adventure throws Anita smack dab into the middle of a fight over territory in two ways, getting caught up in vampire politics with the local Master of the City,...more
Usually when I write a review, I add a little paragraph describing the main plot. The problem with this book is that there is so little plot that it almost seems useless to try to explain it. I'll give you a tiny summary instead: Richard is accused of rape, he'll turn furry soon, have to get him out...more
This one hits all the right buttons, but manages to throw in a couple of curve balls while doing it. As the title suggests, we're in werewolf territory and I have to say, not being a super werewolf fan usually, Hamilton has managed to get me on board with the wolves....more
Although the plot is still interesting, and we get Edward back soon (whoo!!), I think it is here that the 'casual' sex begins. We go from Anita being in a monogamous relationship, to having sex with someone whilst in a relationship with someone else, to 'baring' all in front of strangers. I don't mind sex scenes but considering how these books originall...more
Anita was just as arrogant and SuperReallyPowerful as she was in the other books but in this one she's actually attempting to learn about the Lycanthropes. She's putting aside (for the most part) her 'holier than thou' attitude an...more
