Circus of the Damned - Laurell K Hamilton


"Loving the monsters always ends badly for the humans. It's a rule."

My voracious appetite for the adventures of Anita Blake required sating and as such it was on to volume 3. When last we left our intrepid adventuress, Jean Claude was the city's master vampire and Anita was overworked after dealing with killer zombies and her awakening as a necromancer.
This instalment kicks off with a gruesome vampire pack killing and an increase in tensions in the vampire hierarchy. Ancient vampires, a date with a cute, nice guy and a whole lot of silver bullet laden gunfights ensue.
This circus is full of action, but this reader is still disappointed at Anita's ability to keep Jean-Claude at arm's length. These two have to get together and soon, Richard just seems like a pale imitation.Caving? Really? Okay, rant over. I need to put Anita back on the shelf for a bit and get some work done, but she keeps calling to me. This might get a little repetitive but I'm still giving it  5 out of 5 vampire kisses.
