Resuscitare i morti (per un breve periodo) era considerato magia nera. Ma ormai è diventata un'operazione di routine, almeno per Anita Blake: tracciare un cerchio, uccidere una capra o un gallo e... voilà! Il caro estinto può finalmente chiarire a chi intendeva "davvero" lasciare il suo castello oppure testimoniare contro il suo assassino. Ma se il defunto in questione è tale da qualche centinaio di anni, la faccenda si complica. Non basta più un animale; ci vuole un sacrificio umano. E Anita non è disposta a uccidere nessuno, neppure per un milione di dollari. Tanto infatti le è stato offerto e tanto lei ha rifiutato, per la disperazione del suo capo all'Animators' Inc. Faccenda chiusa? Niente affatto.

”Your eyes are the clearest mirror I have ever seen, ma petite. Whenever I begin to pretend to myself. Whenever I have delusions of life. I have only to look into your face and see the truth.”What did he expect me to say? Sorry, I’ll try to ignore the fact that you’re a vampire. “So why keep me arou Leggi tutto
This was TERRIBLE. Terrible!!! Why are you here book??? Why do you exist?? Why do you suck SO MUCH??? Ugh!! I was listening to this while walking to work in the morning, and I’m pretty sure I was waking up whole neighborhoods with my loud, “UGGGGHHHHHHH”s because I could not refrain from reacting to Leggi tutto
When I read the Kate Daniels series, I would see a lot of reviews that compared her to Anita Blake, and Kate would always come out on top. I could see some similarities, obviously, but I find Anita a little disappointing in how dumb she is. She really doesn't know how to shut the hell up so that som Leggi tutto

There was something about Hamilton's first, then second book that irritated the hell out of me, but I couldn't quite figure it out. Then one day I saw a picture of her on the book and I understood what it was. It annoys me when authors make themselves the hero/ine of their books, and then just chang Leggi tutto
This book took my by surprise! I have read it twice now, and there are parts that are still heart-wrenching. In the second book of the Anita Blake series, The Laughing Corpse rips you from reality and tosses you unexpectedly into a world of voodoo, betrayal and forced submission. Following the firs
I like these books. They are fun and entertaining. I like the MC, Anita. There certainly are character traits that annoy me about her, but they aren't deal breakers. I can't ever take this type of urban fantasy seriously. But with that said, the author has a way with words in her descriptive strokes Leggi tutto
I'd been hesitant to read one of these, despite rave reviews by people I trust - I'm not much of a fantasy reader, & we're talking vampires, zombies and werewolves here. Well, folks, what we *really* have is a book in the class of the Harold Shea books - one that bends genres and transcends them. I' Leggi tutto
After reading Guilty Pleasures and falling hook, line, and sinker into the Anita Blake world, I eagerly rushed forward to devour the second offering. The Laughing Corpse digs deeper into Blake’s world, shows off more of Jean-Claude, Ronnie, and the polices characters. As always, Anita is surrounded b Leggi tutto
