This was seven hundred pages about the issues in Anita's increasingly complex interpersonal relationships. While I enjoy character development, this is somewhat overkill. I originally enjoyed the series for the nonstop action in which you were continuously wondering how Anita was going to survive the overwhelming odds she faced with her snarky comments, quick thinking and determination. In the past few books, Hamilton has drifted from that and the Anita Blake series is becoming more like the Meredith Gentry series, which I like, but I also liked the Anita Blake series for what it was and the loss of distinction between them saddens me. Since there was some metaphysical development, I'm hoping it's all setting up for later more impressive confrontations that could potentially be brewing. Several potential future enemies have been introduced so maybe this a long lead in to dealing with them. Also we seem to be back to the titles of the books being bars or clubs in St. Louis. Only The Killing Dance and Cerulean Sins have diverged from that pattern so far.
