If you are looking for the combination horror-mystery-romance, action/adventure book that was typical of the pre-"Narcissus In Chains" books of this series, you're going to be sadly disappointed. Up until page 385, there's only 10 - count 'em 10 - pages devoted to the crime that is highlighted on the book jacket blurb. The rest of the pages are devoted to Anita agonizing about her various relationships and having intercourse or near-intercourse with five (or was it seven - I'm already losing track of them) different characters. And, let's not forget the metaphysical rolling beasts - what would an Anita Blake book now be without them? Forget that the whole concept still doesn't make any sense. With the exception of the ardeur, none of the plot threads left hanging at the end of Cerulean Sins have been picked up. The Mother of Darkness is non-existent, the vampire children are nowhere to be found, Belle Morte has apparently lost interest in Anita, etc.

Anita Blake Vampire executioner used to be a very moral person and the heat between her and the guys she likes was great; but now she screws anything and everyone. Love scenes are very graphic and take chapters and chapters and by the time you finish with one you get a little snippit of a plot and its back into the bedroom. This series has degenerated from being novels to borderline soft porn.

Even though good, this was my least favorite of the series, simply because-shock!-the number of pages devoted to sex scenes just got repetitive. If Anita is going to have to get it on every time she needs to save someone, as it seems lately, she's going to be one sore chicky. She may also have to start carry gift-certificates for a dry cleaning place to replace clothes for the guys she encounters.

I do continue to get a kick out of how the author has Anita talk about little day-to-day things that we my consciously acknowledge, but don't talk about out loud (i.e. what makes a comfy thong).

It was also nice to not have to see the word "sociopath" dozens of times withing the same book. Hopefully the author is going to learn that readers may be getting sick of redundancy.

I will continue to read on in the series though, because for any of it's faults, I enjoyed the main story and series overall.

Book 12 in the series, very typical of what the series morphed into in the later books. Light on detecting and crime, heavy on relationships and angst.

Devout followers of Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake saga who think that they have the sexy vampire executioner finally figured out are in for a big surprise in Incubus Dreams, the 12th -- and steamiest! -- installment in the wildly popular series.
Already metaphysically connected to master vampire Jean-Claude and to Richard, the Ulric of the St. Louis werewolf pack, Anita finds herself in another supernatural triumvirate, this one with the seductive, shape-shifting stripper Nathaniel and the beautiful bloodsucker Damian. With so many preternatural bonds, Anita finds herself struggling to come to grips with the potentially deadly disadvantages -- and the mind-blowing benefits -- of the complicated arrangement. As Anita is just beginning to understand how to utilize her newfound powers, a series of brutal strip club murders forces her to come face to face with her most terrifying foe to date: her own conscience.

it was wonderful.

The focus turns from Richard and Jean Claude to Anita's were lovers Nathaniel and Micah. These two are endearing characters, and in this episode Anita really starts to understand Nathaniel's darker past. It's a very steamy read, but also a little sad because part of you wants to say "what about Jean Claude"?

I'm not even done with this book yet and it is my least favorite. I have maybe 100 or so pages yet and there is nothing but SEX in this book, it's pretty much straight up porn. I don't mind it but I've forgotton what the plot of the book is and I don't like that. I will continue reading the series but this book kinda stinks. Usually I finish my Anita Blake books in 2 to 3 days but this has taken me 2 weeks to finish.
