Quando il telefono squilla in piena notte, Anita Blake intuisce subito che ci sono guai in vista. Ma non si tratta di lavoro: niente cadaveri da resuscitare o vampiri da uccidere. Si tratta di Richard, suo ex fidanzato nonché capo dei lupi mannari di St. Louis: è stato arrestato per tentato stupro. Un'accusa alla quale Anita non crede neppure per un istante. E così corre in suo aiuto, anche perché il tempo stringe: mancano pochi giorni alla luna piena e Richard corre il rischio di veder rivelata al mondo la sua identità di licantropo. Stavolta Anita non può contare sull'appoggio di Jean-Claude, il master di St. Louis, ma viene accompagnata da due fidati vampiri e da alcuni leopardi mannari, sui quali ha scoperto di avere un forte ascendente e che la trattano come la capobranco. Ed è una fortuna, perché le indagini sono ancora più complicate di quanto pensasse: il contatto con i lupi mannari e i vampiri del luogo, infatti, sta risvegliando poteri che lei non sapeva di avere, facendole commettere azioni di cui mai si sarebbe ritenuta capace e mettendola a confronto con certi lati della sua personalità che avrebbe preferito non conoscere'

When I realized this was the next book ony my list in the series, I was totally bummed. I don’t really care much for Richard. I don’t. I just don’t like him, or crap that comes along with him What can I say? A dramatic and goody boy scout just isn’t the guy for me. It wasn’t until I was about 15% i Leggi tutto
If you want to read a synopsis, there are plenty of places for you to do that elsewhere. This is what I thought of the book: Though I did end up liking this in the end, for about the first 1/2 of the book, all of the things I don't like about Hamilton's style were out in full force. She has a tendenc Leggi tutto
Hey, I found out why Richard is such a whiny dick in this book! His mother - the domineering bitch! Nothing like a horrible, bitchy mother who keeps her sons' testicles in her handbag, to raise a punk-ass, spoiled baby of a son! And, don't forget Richard's brother, Daniel, who we meet, and is just a Leggi tutto
"You are making this too complicated." Anita Blake is woken in the middle of the night by a call from Daniel, Richard's younger brother. It appears while Richard was in Tennessee studying trolls and such for his master's thesis that he has been thrown in jail for rape. Anita immediately comes to the Leggi tutto
Sex, violence, poor plot, irrational prudishness combined with irrational sexual behavior... Dont know what else to say really. Except wheres Larry? The most interesting supporting character has been lost somewhere. And wheres Animators Inc? Does she even have her job anymore (it is mentioned in the Leggi tutto
4 1/2 I reviewed Blue Moon when I read it many years ago but I can’t find a copy and can’t remember what my thoughts were. I’m sure I thought it was “one of the best books ever” because I was still a fangirl and it features a whole hell of a lot of Richard and back then I was a fangirl of him too. No Leggi tutto

If this had been the first Anita Blake I had read, it would have been the last Anita Blake I had read. There is a plot. It is an interesting plot even. The plot, however, takes a different car than the sex that gets pushed to the fore. (Yes, I know the correct expresssion is "the plot took a back se Leggi tutto
The first several novels in the Anita Blake series are great. Funny, scary, a touch gory and a touch sexy. As you read each book, you can really see the character development as Anita becomes more sure of herself and more comfortable with the "monsters". However, some the later books have deteriorat Leggi tutto
I found Richard to be a little petty in this book; it was like tit for tat. She hurts him so he becomes a bit of a slut. He wants her attention but he doesn’t want her help to get him off the rape charges. It’s so much back and forth. The sound effect during the sex scene was weird. It was bound to Leggi tutto
