I am a big fan of this story line, and it's been AGES since I got an update on the Babies, and Magic. But some people didn't help Laurel K with any editing. What do immortal men do all day? nothing?? Really?? occasionally train that's it?? There were so many many wasted pages of boring information about what people were wearing, what happened in the past, what happened in the past, and did I mention what happened in another book... What about this book?
Usually with the Anita Blake stories there is more violence descriptions than I can stomach, so I just do a little page skipping. This book, I was page skipping to try to find some story line of interest. If I'd been the editor I would have removed 80% of the book and asked for more character development. I'm so glad I didn't pay for the more expensive hardcover book, I bought the Kindle, and will never read this story again. It was not worth paying Kindle $11.00. So if you MUST read it, check it out of the library.
