Anita Blake has been asked to raise the dead-but the results aren't going to make everybody happy...

I have been a long time fan of Laurell K Hamilton, and I would be embarrased if I were her. I feel like she is forcing anything she possibly can out right now. I would have been much happier to have waited for a story with an actuall plot. Too bad. It mmay make me hesitate buying future books from her. BOO
This is not a usual Anita Blake story. Only three of her loves show up in the book, and that is at the beginning and the very end. No Richard. No Jean-Claude. Nothing exciting happens. Nothing we have been waiting on occurs.
I'm very disappointed. Blood Noir was ok. Skin Trade was just ok. Flirt is empty. It reads like the first 5 chapters of a real Anita Blake book. Oh, and it is about as long as the first five chapters of a real Anita Blake book. If you are a die hard fan...go to the local library and get it.
Exactly what LKH said it would be
Long time LKH fan and this delivered exactly what she promised if you read the blogs. LKH said it was like a "Micah" book and it was. This is about a 3 hour read for the hardback. Excellent story but do not expect it to be in depth. She is building characters depth and Anita Blake is learning to Flirt, but has no talent in this area.
I agree that this should only be a paperback and that hardback is over priced. Still like the story for a once or twice read - just like "Micah" was. Haven't picked it up in over a year either.
This story does leave the lover of "Haven" wondering what will happen to him now since the next book, "Bullet", will pick up a year after the timeline in this book. We will have to wait and see.
