Not my favorite story, but I really do like Edward, so it was still worth reading.

Another great addition to the series. I was pleased to see Edward back in the story and enjoyed that his character had become more in depth. This is definitely a series for people who like this genre and not for those looking for something boring and ordinary. The main characters have depth and I like the fact that Hamilton takes time to describe their thoughts, actions and emotions instead of just being vague. Anita is a thoroughly thought out person who has so many of the same emotions and problems that it's easy to see her as "real" and relate to the things she has to go through. A wonderful story!

On a plot hole note...
Does anyone who read these ever wonder why the vampires are considered citizens where it can be murder for killing them, but the lycanthropes don't seem to fall under this protective law? The books say that they have a disease, like AIDS, and shouldn't be discriminated against yet are still considered "varmits" (in some states ;P) and can be shot on sight as long as blood tests prove they're a lycanthrope. The werewolves even have a power system where killing the leader is okay (and has to be known by the authorities) to become pack leader, yet that's okay. As is a lot of killing of other lycanthropes. I mean really, where's the ACLU (or would that be LCLU?) when you need them?

This is one of my favorites in the series, It's great! suspenseful, full of action and yes~ a book with lots of action can have a good plot! Before I started reading the Anita Blake series, I didn't think it could be that way =)

you have to read this series to really 'get it' I think~ the descriptions all sound kinda lame! haha. but it's a great series, way better than the lousy descriptions they print on the books themselves. Anita Blake is a very well written character. If you haven't read the other books, don't start here!! you won't fully get or appreciate the whole background and such. (kinda like the reviewer who said they didn't 'buy the hero' there is a reason she can get so hurt and be okay! it's all in earlier books.)

This was my first Hamilton book and I just wasn't impressed. I just found Anita hard to believe. She was always getting hurt and always miraculously surviving. I liked the storyline, I just didn't believe in the hero.

This book was an extra long story. It was a fast read. Unfortunately there was no Jean Claude or Richard but lots of Edward.I enjoyed it but can't wait to get back to the more romantic stuff!

I had really missed the character Edward, so I'm glad Hamilton gave him a starring role in this book. This book really gives Edward a lot more depth. However, the book was a lot longer than the others in the series and really dragged. If you're not into erotica, you probably won't enjoy this book.

Book 9 in the Anita Blake series, I think this is the last good one. It's the last book with Edward in it, and the writing is still tight, the action good.

I enjoyed finding out more about Edward. Good story, too - more involved and longer than the previous books.

This book is about Edward. I loved reading about him. Totally fascinating. In my opinion, the last good book in the series.

Anita and Edward go off for an adventure without the other characters, which provides a nice side-trip in the series, so to speak, and as I always have liked Edward, I enjoyed this book quite a lot.

Not my favorite of the series. The mystery was good. We got to know Edward a lot better. However it is missing the love triangle that I love and miss so much! I read it because it is a must in the series; however I am much looking forward to the next in the series. Anita needs to open up to her sexuality.
