Everyone talks about these books and how they aren't written well or how they "descended" into porn...This series (and most like it) aren't supposed to be high art, they are entertainment. If you don't want sex and violence in your entertainment, go read some Nicholas Sparks or Christian fiction....This series is just pure fun!The big bad in this book is Musette, the second for Belle Morte (the creator of Jean-Claude and Asher's line). Anita struggles with the ardeur and is hired by a hitman to raise his ancestor. There is also someone tearing women apart in St. Louis and Dolph is losing his grip on who is good and who deserves to die. There is a lot going on in this book, and it all stays true to the characters. Richard struggles with his conscience, Anita struggles with her own "monstrosity", and Jean-Claude and Asher struggle against Belle. You can always count on Anita to get the job done though, and I love her toughness and her protectiveness. Just enjoyment!read more

This novel was a continuation of the series' downward spiral. Anita's relations with the police continue to deteriorate, more vampires are in town, Anita has ardeur sex with more people, and so forth. I've never reread it, and I don't plan on doing so any time soon.read more

I am again disappointed. I don't know what happened to the series but after Blue Moon. From a plateau, it went downhill and fast. I used to love Anita, don't get me wrong I still love the series but I just think that the plot of the series was lost with all erotic scenes and the coming of the ardeur.I have come to the point where I skip all the sexy scenes to where the action is and I am left with only a few pages to read. I mean that's a great degrade to the previous books that the series had. The sense in the plot seems to go nowhere, the characters just gets bad every time, the ending are flat.I can still recommend this novel to people who love the supernatural but with caution. I can tolerate erotica at some point but too much of it - that I can't handle. Would still be reading until the end of the series due to curiosity of how the story will progress and what the characters would be like but not as in love with the series like before.I do hope Hamilton turns the series around. Such a great series to go to waste.

It was better than the previous one, sort of. I didn't have to wade through more descriptions of horse sized schlongs, so that was a good thing. She tried to have 3 or 4 plot threads here going at a same time, and I'm not sure if it was a good thing or bad thing. I don't think the extra plots were really needed, but they helped to keep the RIPT squad characters involved.Nothing really great or really terrible here, if you liked the other ones you'll like this one too.

I still like these books, but like I said about the last ones, they're starting to contain a bit too much sex. With this book, it seemed like the first 100 pages or so was Anita moving from one sexual scene to another. I think the series lost something when Hamilton saddled Anita with this supernatural sexual appetite that has to be satisfied (or what, I don't really know).Maybe I'll understand more when I read the one I've skipped, Narcissus in Chains. Don't have that one yet. I also skipped over book #9, but that was actually the first one in the series that I read, which happened to take place during a time when she's not really having *any* sex at all.I'll continue to read the series, I just hope that Hamilton recaptures some of the formula that made the first 6 books or so of the series so great.
