People who like to be scared (and who have read the other books).
Read from April 30 to May 05, 2012
The romance is getting a bit out of hand in this series, but I still really like the way Hamilton writes horror, especially dream sequences--they're so vivid and evocative, I can picture myself in Anita's shoes, running in fear, and it's great.
There's something about the sensual, vivid nature of Hamilton's horror descriptions that I just love. It reminds me of certain key moments (the highlights) of H. P. Lovecraft's stories. When I write horror, I want into be evocative (and scary) in this way. I think the key element is to include sensual details: smells, sounds, tactile sensations, tastes, in addition to vivid descriptions of sights.
So, although I could do without Anita's romance issues--I think the series would be much better if she only had one or two love interests, instead of an entire harem of men--I'll keep reading a book every now and then, to get a dose of Hamilton's evocative horror, the kind that sends chills up your spine.
