Critic Reviews

"The third novel of Hamilton's Anita Blake series has the petite necromancer fighting a giant cobra and a rogue vampire, Alejandro, who wants her for his human servant. Anita is still resisting the advances of Jean-Claude, St. Louis's master vampire, but she does need him on her side, if not in her bed. Anita's reluctant involvement in the odd goings-on at the supernatural Circus of the Damned introduces her to Richard, the werewolf of her dreams, and Larry, her powerful but nervous partner in zombie-raising. Mystery fans will love the tightly plotted, Paretsky-esque action, and horror fans will love just about everything in this unusual series." ( review)
"One of the most fascinating fictional heroines since Scarlett O'Hara-and a hell of a lot more fun than most." ( Publishers Weekly)

Vampires, Werewolves and Snake gods...oh my

This book was fun. Since I have read all of the older books first and then came back to the first books I enjoyed this book for a few reasons. I love how Anita is confused by the monsters and the more confused and scared she gets the more aggressive and violent she gets. How Jean-Claude is clumsy and really pushes her but it seems to always back fire on him. I like how he is not sure how to handle her. I like that she is learning that Jean-Claude is not nearly as bad as most of the other Vamps. I also like to see that Richard was even blind to her back in the beginning of this series. He couldn’t swallow her out there fighting the bad guys and risking her life. He still is trying to find a way to wrap her in cotton and take away who and what she is. She is one tuff cookie our little necromancer is !!!!! :)
