This is #18 in the Anita Blake Series. This is a series that seems to get better and better.
I originally read this book a couple of years ago, but I just recently listened to the audiobook. I have read all 24 books in main part of the series and 2 of the novellas. After reading that many books about one characters its hard not to develop expectations for the characters. The voice of Anita on the audio is sensational.
This book marks a bit of change in the Anita Blake Series. There is a significant departure in the balance of sensuality and the violent paranormal activity. The book is more heavily weighted towards relationship issues than paranormal battles. As a romance novel addict, I really appreciate the change. This book is edgy and intense.
One thing that makes Anita an unusual heroine (well there’re actually many) is that while she is involved with many exceptionally beautiful men, she doesn’t discriminate if they are flawed all at the same time. The fact that Nicky is missing his right eye doesn’t diminish his sex appeal in the eyes of Anita. Her acceptance of many issues is just one of the things that makes her an incredibly cool character.
