Week 27 Reviews: The Lunatic Cafe, Bloody Bones, The Killing Dance, Burnt Offerings, Blue Moon, The Girl Who Was Infatuated With Death






From Goodreads:
Vampire hunter and zombie animator Anita Blake is an expert at sniffing out the bad from the good. But in The Lunatic Cafe she's about to learn that nothing is ever as it seems, especially in matters of the not-so-human heart.

Dating a werewolf with self-esteem issues is stressing Anita out. Especially when something-or someone-starts taking out the city's shapeshifters.

From Goodreads:
In Laurell K. Hamilton's "New York Times" bestselling novels, Anita Blake, vampire hunter and animator, takes a bite out of crime-of the supernatural kind. But even someone who deals with death on a daily basis can be unnerved by its power... 

When Branson, Missouri, is hit with a death wave-four unsolved murders-it doesn't take an expert to realize that all is not well. But luckily for the locals, Anita is an expert-in just the kinds of preternatural goings-on that have everyone spooked. And she's got an "in" with just the kind of creature who can make sense of the slayings: a sexy master vampire known as Jean Claude.

From Goodreads:
Dating both a vampire and a werewolf isn't easy. But just to complicate Anita's already messy life, someone has put a price on her head. Love cannot save her this time, so she turns to Edward, hitman extraordinaire, for help. But finding the person behind the threat won't be easy, because as both a vampire hunter and zombie reanimator, Anita has made a lot of enemies-both human and otherwise. 

From Goodreads:
"You can't trust anyone who sleeps with the monsters."


That's what I've always said. That's what I've always believed. But now I'm the one sharing a bed with the Master Vampire of the City. Me, Anita Blake. The woman the vampires call the Executioner. From part of the solution, I've become part of the problem. So it hits close to home when an arsonist begins to target vampire-owned businesses all over town -- an arsonist who seems to want to destroy more than just property. It's the monsters who are in danger now. And it's up the the Executioner to save them from the inferno...

From Goodreads:
When she chose master vampire Jean-Claude over her ex-fianc├ę, alpha werewolf Richard Zeeman, Anita learned that sometimes love is not enough. But though she and Richard won't be walking down any aisles, she can't turn her back on him when he's arrested on a rape charge in Tennessee. Anita knows firsthand that Richard has the morals of a saint—or at least a boy scout. But his guilt or innocence is not the issue. He's behind bars, and in five days a full moon will rise…

From Goodreads:
From Laurell K. Hamilton, a never-before-published Anita Blake story in which Anita, temporarily separated from her vampire lover Jean-Claude, must go to him for help on a case. Where she finds herself once more falling under his erotic spell...

My Review:
I enjoyed reading these books! I do know that the upcoming installments in the series aren't as well liked, but I'm hopeful, because they do sound good-just that they sound pretty different from this part of the series. I mean, there was no sex until Bloody Bones. And it becomes a focus. So yeah, different, but I won't know if it's bad or not for me, until I read them. I am slightly worried, though!

A good deal of these books is the relationships between Anita and these guys. She was engaged to Richard, and then she was sleeping with Jean-Claude. And then Richard needed help and well, maybe they might work out. There were a lot of issues, between the differences between Anita and Richard, and the fear that Jean-Claude liked the power just a little too much.

Burnt Offerings, for me, was a very interesting book. They have the vampire council visiting, and they're a pretty big threat. But they have to act nice and polite and be hosts, and all the while, the bad guys are doing some pretty horrible stuff. It was different, and I really enjoyed reading it!

I'm kinda noticing a pattern. There's a few things going on at one time, and then it turns out that the bad guys are connected somehow, some way. Not always, but when it happens, things just line up and come together! Which is really awesome to read!

This series is really fascinating and I love reading it! I can't wait to read more!
