There’s something about Leo Harlan that I don’t like. He’s asked me to reanimate his long-dead ancestor, and it seems like a perfectly ordinary case for someone like me: Anita Blake, preternatural expert, vampire hunter and raiser of the dead. So I agree—sometimes you deal with the devil not because you want to, but because if you don’t, someone else will. But what he hasn’t told me is that the corpse may hold the secret to an ancient crime that not everyone wants to be remembered....
Though this one is interesting, it was never, that high in the list of book in the series that I liked. It was way to full of personal shit. Really, to full.
It mostly has her dealing, or not, with the adur that she’s gotten from joining completely with Jean Claude and Richard.
With a wolf out there ripping woman apart—that’s the cop part, oh, with that, there’s a meltdown that killer.
A master needing something she thinks’ she’s entitled to.
And Asher’s ultimatum, that fucks Anita up quite a bit.
This one she Anita’s and Jason’s relationship grows. Shows how messed up two characters (one a lot closer to the heart than the other) are. And the power that one bit of a woman has over everyone she comes in contact with.
It’s a good tale, and it’s a great read, well worth the time and effort but...
It’s also an important one, I think, it’s needed for you to truly understand what Anita is going through, but then, she’ll tell you all the important crap anyway, so....
