I just finished this book. One of her better books. I love Laurell Hamilton's books, however, I prefer the older books in the collection when Anita was still a hardcore vampire slayer and not a hardcore sex addict. I like the newer books okay but they seem to be so focused on the ardeur that they don't have the plot that the first in the series did. I recommend this one to anyone who enjoys Anita in her crime fighting days. I have read five books in the series but I'm geting them out of order. Does anyone have a list of how the order goes?

This book felt more put together and a little darker than the other Anita books before it. It also points out that you don't have to be a monster to be truely evil.

I like the earlier books better in the series before Anita picked up the Ardeur. I like the earlier Anita who seemed grittier and I liked her morals that she stuck to. Although the newer Anita has some serious magical power, I liked the hands & guns proficient Anita better who relied on her wits more than magic. I do not mind a little sex but the newer books are becoming more erotica than fiction. Seems each new book adds more lovers to Anita's bed, I wonder when she will reach enough.

5th book in the Anita Blake Vampire Series. Honestly, I still like the first four the best. ;) But this one was a good breath of fresh air from the "sameness" that they were developing. A good plot, and hey, JEAN CLAUDE.

One of the more sexually graphic of the series. A big tease with the Jean-Claude possibilities...

I love all Laurell Hamilton's books, especially the Anita Blake series. It's not necessary to read them in order, but it's much easier to know the previous books and what's happened before this one to know her relationship with the main vampire and weres. It has romance, action, fantasy and humor. It's not a silly vampire story, but has a great story to it and very well written. I highly recommend it! :)

Finally, Finally, Finally. Jean Claude is finally where he should be. The long awaited TRUTH from Anita on her feelings for Jean Claude. We felt the tension rise and now I can see it coming....

This is what I was waiting for. Certainly I enjoy her other potential lovers, but this is what I started reading the series for.

As far as the story line, I thought I was able to guess what was gonna happened. Wrong, not till it happened did I see it coming.

I love the series and on to the next book 6.
