“He crawled across the stage in that way that the wereanimals had, as if they had muscles in places that humans didn’t.”
Supernatural lust with a body count, yep Anita Blake is back at it again. The perfect respite from family Christmas time activities is to retreat into the dark and dingy surrounds that the necromancer calls home.
Our heroine’s powers are increasing at an alarming rate and guess what, that means she has to sleep with just about everyone to avoid the bad side of the ‘ardeur’ – what a great excuse to misbehave. There is the requisite internal struggle as Anita tries to reconcile her morals with her actions.
Finally the triumvirate get it on together, awakening a whole host of new powers oh and there’s a serial killer popping off strippers that might just be a vampire (or more than one).
My enthusiasm for Jean-Claude is waning and I’ve developed a bit of a crush on Nathaniel – he’s cuddly, does whatever Anita wants and he’s a hot stripper to boot. Yep, Anita has a hard life, well except for the dealing with zombies and grisly murder scenes. Well you can’t win em all.
4 out of 5 supernaturals get a lot of action.
