Just finished the latest book in the series about Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter. Laurell K. Hamilton has that golden touch, which can make almost anything fascinating.

But not quite everything, at least for me. This 25th book in the series has two chapter-length sex scenes and two much shorter sex scenes. I skipped them, not because they revolted me though they included multiple partners, homosexual, and S&M elements, but because erotica bores me.

It also includes lots of relationship scenes, of who likes or dislikes whom and how they navigate the difficulties. That I found more interesting, partly because most of the characters are werewolves or vampires; you may not.

Scattered throughout are several action scenes, culminating in a large-scale brawl between Anita and her allies and an army of vampires and selkie mind-slaves. Hamilton is a master of this kind of action.

Haven’t read any of this series? Then you might want to dip into the very first book and see if you like it.
