«Ero sicura di averla sconfitta. Insomma, io l'ho vista morire. E invece eccola qui, decisa a uccidermi...»
Per via dei suoi legami con Jean-Claude e con la comunità dei licantropi di St. Louis, Anita Blake è ormai abituata alle occhiatacce e ai pettegolezzi degli altri Marshall federali della squadra soprannaturale. Però non può tollerare di essere messa da parte quando un assassino inizia a mietere vittime fra le tigri mannare dell'Oregon, soprattutto se al suo posto viene mandata una novellina, che rischia solo di farsi ammazzare. Tuttavia Anita non è certo tipo da arrendersi e si reca lo stesso sulla scena del crimine, anche perché lei è l'unica a conoscere la terrificante verità che si cela dietro quei delitti: non sono opera di un serial killer, bensì dell'Arlecchino, una setta di vampiri potentissimi che ha ricevuto dalla Madre delle Tenebre l'ordine di vigilare sulle creature della notte. Ma la sterminatrice non può sapere che la vampira primigenia questa volta ha dato loro un compito ben diverso: seminare il panico tra la popolazione per attirare Anita lontano dal suo territorio e, quindi, dalla protezione di Jean-Claude e di Richard...

DON'T READ THESE BOOKS . Here is the "plot" of this installment: The Harlequin are killing people. Anita teams up with Edward and they become BFFs. Bernardo and Olaf are called in for shits and giggles. Jean-Claude, Micah, and Nathaniel are not even mentioned until page 175. Laurell K. Hamilton STILL Leggi tutto
I can’t do it. I can’t do another straight-up review of an Anita Blake novel . . . it’s too depressing. I need alcohol to get through this, the 20th instalment of a once-great series. Let the alcohol poisoning begin! The Anita Blake ‘Hit List’ Drinking Game Drink When . . . you read this commo Leggi tutto
*Rating* 3.0 *Genre* Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance/Erotica *Review* Hit List is the twentieth installment in the Anita Blake series and it nearly made me rethink my desire to abandon this series. Why? Because it actually felt like Hamilton was trying to return to the old Anita Blake that I knew and Leggi tutto
Now there's the Anita Blake I've been looking for! This book was great and I loved every moment. This book felt more like the earlier books in terms of trying to solve murder cases and focusing on the storyline instead of Anita's romancing troubles. There's alot of Edward in this one and we got to se Leggi tutto
Oh, Laurell. What happened to turn this series from interesting mystery (featuring fascinating lesser-known creatures of a variety of mythological and folk traditions) into involuntary cautionary style book on how NOT to write (featuring mostly Rainbow Weretigers)? Just for fun, let's point out some Leggi tutto
Warning: rant about the Anita Blake series in general about to commence. I'm a long time fan of Laurell K. Hamilton. I started reading when she only had three books out, and despite my current frustration with her writing I have faithfully continued to read the entire series. I don't mind reading abou Leggi tutto
Well, after reading Bullet this was way better. Still it's not where the series started. Anita may not spend the whole book between naked bodies. However, she spends most of the book TALKING! And I just realised that I have no idea who most of the characters are and I need to google them pretty often Leggi tutto
Simple review - If you read all the books up to this one, let’s be honest you are going to read this one too... It’s an average story at best and fails to build to anything that the conclusion deserves. Complex review - I took up reading the series as I loved the initial concept of necromancy + Crime Leggi tutto
Okay, the good; one sex scene! One! And it was tiddy tiny and quick. True, the good feeling was ruined by Anita actually using the phrase 'dangling bits' somewhere in the book, but you can't have everything. Editing. Again, just appalling amount of repetition on the page. Again, slow, slow, slow, not Leggi tutto
Anita Blake book #20. That’s impressive. All old Anita Fans will enjoy this book, especially those that loved Obsidian Butterfly. I opened the book and prepared myself for sex scenes and clothing descriptions. So I sat down with Hit List, grabbed myself a coffee and prepared to find out what Anita wa Leggi tutto
