I am a long time Laurell K. Hamilton fan so I feel bad giving a not so great review. This book was better than the few that came before it, but LKH seems to have lost something the past few years. Her writing is repetitious. How many times do we need to be reminded that Anita is small? How many times do we need in depth descriptions of characters we have known for a long time? And how many times do we have to read the same phrases over and over? There was no meat to this book, and there hasn't been any meat in the last several books. At least there was more to this than just sex...but not much. Plus LKH seems to feel that she has to explain things to her readers like we are idiots. I get it. You don't have to explain something to me over and over. I'm not sure I will read any more of LKH's books, which makes me sad because they used to be so good. The last few I've read have been read with the hope that she will write like she used to...but so far it hasn't happened.

Karen I SO agree

Poppy Fields I couldn't agree more!

Heather Tisdale You're right on most of this. The only problem is using the word "meat" to describe the lack of an interesting plot line and substance in previous books. The problem is, there's too much "meat" and not enough substance that doesn't revolve around the sexual orgy that follows Anita around.
