it was ok
bookshelves: sex-instead-of-plot
Read in January, 2005

This book is where I gave up. I would say it was like Custer’s Last Stand for me…but I didn’t die and I think Custer was an arrogant douche bag.

Anyway, I’m drifting here.

I’ll give LKH one thing—Anita isn’t a static character. She goes from hardass, kick-ass, screw-you (not literally though) heroine into Anita Blake sex kitten who sometimes kills vamps when she’s not having metaphysical three way sexy time and other random sexy time to tame that damn ardeur.

(You may be under the mistaken impression that the villain in this book is a serial killer. However, the true villain is the ardeur which has replaced Anita with a sexy pod person enslaved to rampant boot knockin’)

Damn you, ardeur. DAMN YOU!

The book is slooooooooow.

Then Anita straps it on (her Browning yah pervs) and there is a good, tense scene where she actually lives up to her Executioner title. But it’s at the end, so if I were you I’d skip to that first and say you’d read the rest.

Did I mention the book is slow? Cuz yeah, it’s pretty glacial.
