"I am over two hundred," Jean-Claude said.
"I rest my case.”
I postponed writing this review for as long as I could. Then I postponed it again. Then again. Finally I realized I need to do it right now before I forget what is was about. The reason was I have no clue how to rate the book. I was hoping for a bright idea, a Eureka! moment, something. Nothing came. And here I am as clueless as I was right after finishing.
So about the plot of Circus ...more
Well, it's not going to be Anita. This girl is obsessed with her Nikes. Nikes are mentioned in this book so many times that if you played a drinking game with "Nike" as your word, you would be smashed by the halfway point of the book.
But, don't worry, she always color coordinates her Nikes with a sporty fanny pack. To look more fashionable, of course.
So, even though we want to picture Anita like this:
She is actually more like this:
So, in this book we have a pack of vampires murdering people. An ...more
Here Anita is still working as an animator and an assistant to preternatural police force. Anita has a full plate, as usual, after a full night of corpse raising, she’s then hounded by members of “the ...more
I'm afraid my love affair with Anita's badass ways may be coming to an end. Too much of a good thing I suppose.
It's kinda like when you have a crush on someone so everything they do is wonderful. But a few months into the relationship the actions you once loved start to annoy the crap out of you. I'm starting to feel that way towards Anita. I loved her bitchiness, no soft edges, tough as nails, I don't date vampires, I kill them attitude. But now I am gettin ...more
Just three books in, and already we can see a pattern forming. Dudes come to Anita to have her do something; she says, in no uncertain terms, "No". Dolph calls her to investigate a murder; it ends up being the weirdest, most unusual murder Anita has ever seen. Jean-Claude makes the moves on her; Anita tells him to F@#$ off. Anita does minor investigating, bad guys come out of the woodworks to try to kill her, Anita is rude and sarcastic ...more
The swearing is excessive and redundant. And I realize that in a series you have to make each book a stand alone and therefore have to explain the same thing several times. But does it have to be word for word? There are literally paragra ...more
“I could have made this pleasant, but now I think I want you to hurt. Look into my eyes, mortal, and despair.”
Oooh, bad guys coming at Anita from all sides. It was action packed, complicated, and I loved it!
This is our first introduction to Richard, gorgeous pain in the ass. You get the taste of all the passionate battles to come between them.
Here are some of my castings:
The first two books in this series, Guilty Pleasures and The Laughing Corpse are amazing pieces of work.
This book declares no less awesomeness. This is the book that wraps you around the series and pulls everything together. This book is really the beginning of the journey that whips and turns you into a reality that is completely twisted, morbid and simply put, cool!
Anita Blake is introduced to a few character ...more
I wonder if Hamilton got any money from Nike for product placement? It seems like she mentions the shoes by name at least once per chapter. Although I suppose I could say the same thing about 2-3 brands of gun…. ...more
For all the Anita Blake books - I started this series with my then friend, Meredith - she actually got me hooked that fateful summer of 2000 when I was living on her wooden floor in Brooklyn. We were both unemployed and bored and got hooked into this series. I loved Anita Blake because it was before I discovered the new genre - what I like to call "badass chicks who kick ass!" written in first person - and so she was all empowering and of course there were hot vampires and werewolves in it.
Circus of the Damned kind of made me sigh in relief because it was, for the most part, less graphic than the previous book. To ...more
A band of rogue masters has come to town and are out in the streets killing people. Anita Blake will have to decide who she is loyal to in this action packed, fast paced novel.
I reread this book, and while I remembered quite a few of the plot points, I still enjoyed the book. Anita Blake is still a kick butt necromancer who happens to execute vampires along with helping the police regional preternatural crimes unit. With all of this going on she still finds time to date, which is the one aspe ...more
This novel didn't have a lot of slow moments , events happened bang bang bang which for me was good. I don't think I could have handled Anita if she was given enough alone or downtime then I would have had to deal with her mind. And honestly at this stage in the game, 3 books in is only early but I'm not a big fan of the character. Or the characters.
The story over all is interesting, and the actions scenes are attention holding. I'm hoping as time goes on the chara ...more
Jean-Claude is turning Anita's life into one hell of a big mess; Anita is firstly baited by a vampire Master called Alejandro, who controls a pack of rabid vampires who have chewing up people and leaving them on the cemetery. Alejandro wishes to know who is the Vampire Master controlling the city of St.Louis, and his where h ...more
Bir şeyi söylemeden geçemem anita hayran kalınacak bir karakterdi,ama bazen o inadı insanı çileden çıkaracak noktaya ulaşabiliyordu. Yan karakterlere bayıldm dolph ve polisler,larry hatta bert süperdi :D erkeklere sylenicek ...more
so here since I do not have an official review for you have some saucy men images..
I am honestly curious what other people think their male characters would look like?
I don't like Richard the bitch. He annoys me greatly.
I don't like my "supposed-alpha-wolfman" acting like a pussy whipped idiot.
Jean Claude all the fucking way.
*Warning: possible spoilers ahead.*
Circus of the Damned, the third of the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K. Hamilton, opens with Anita meeting with members of Humans First, an organization campaigning to have vampires criminalized again.
They ask for the daytime resting place of the Master of the City. Anita refuses, but there is a bit of deliberation. Not so long ago, she would have believed that staking a vampire wasn’t murder. Things have changed over the course o ...more
The most important pro is that there is Edward to be had. Cold, ruthless Edward with a soft spot for Anita but for Anita the friend, maybe even Anita the baby sister, not Anita the "sex bomb".
Then we have the first Richard appearance. Damn but the guy was full of potential. Charming and full of humour. The Richard we meet in this book has nothing to do with the whinny, cruel, jealous SOB he becomes late ...more
In this story Anita has to investigate some murders and she has to deal with too many vampires! We already knew, from the previous book, that Anita is special as a necromancer, but here we can see it more clearly. And that is obvious, because Jean-Claude ...more
