    A dumb girl in love with both a vampire and a werewolf? This sounds slightly familiarBut hey this book was written first so I have a pretty good idea on who might have had the original idea I'm smart like thatI liked this book slightly better than the last one Anita is still pretty annoying but I can still appreciate a few things about her I crossed my arms on my stomach A psychologist would have said I was closed off uncommunicative Fuck them See I like thatIn this book we have Anita trying to solve a case in which several shapeshifters have gone missing She is also trying to figure out her relationship with Richard a werewolf Things get a little hairy with him haha hairysee what I did there? Strangely for a girl who made a big statement about the fact that she won't date monsters she is sure singing a different tune all of the sudden I will go out on a limb here and say that humans dating animals is creepy And Richard definitely showed himself to be an animal in this book His reaction to a very disturbing snuff film was eually disturbing Hey crabmanBut for some reason that doesn't scare Anita off And now she has agreed to date Jean Claude the vampire king at the same time as her wolf man That is one scary threesome Edward is becoming one of my favorite characters in this series He is such a heartless mercenary and yet he has a soft spot for Anita It cracked me up when he told Anita why he was following her Following you around lets me kill a lot of people That's very true because as I have mentioned before Anita has a big mouth and ends up having multiple attempts on her life in every book Any bloodthirsty killer would love to follow her around and kill all of the people who are trying to kill her He gets to look like a hero all while fulfilling his murdery dreams It's a win winI hope Edward will keep showing up in the next books but I have a feeling that there might be a point where he gets hired to kill Anita I will actually be on Team Edward at that point

    If I had to do this review in two words it wouldn't be a challenge Twilight Noir Okay it's historically inaccurate since Stephenie Meyer stole the idea from Laurel K Hamilton rather than vice versa but apart from that it's close to the facts We have the basic Twilight scenario human woman is simultaneously in love with a vampire and a werewolf but for bizarre reasons can't actually have sex with either of them Instead of the infuriatingly wimpy Bella though we have tough as nails Anita who's your generic noir private eye And instead of the bizarre Twilight plot we're served the usual noir routine with Anita getting threatened beaten up and shot at as she wise cracks her way from one perilous situation to another kills the occasional supernatural creature or human and needless to say solves the case The rest of this review is available elsewhere the location cannot be given for Goodreads policy reasons

    A Date off?? Seriously? Oh what has become of you John Taylorer uh Jean Claude Hamilton tries to introduce a love triangle Tries It ends up being a dating competition and reminds me of a poorly written sitcom Not what I would expect from a couple of super powerful super sexy men Anita was an even bigger disappointment relationship wise We learn that she is such a badass who doesn’t date because of a bad relationship ONE bad relationship Big deal Who hasn’t had their heart broken? I also found it bizarre that Anita Jean Claude Richard seem to think that you can love someone romantically without actually liking them Um isn’t that just lust then? At one point Anita says of Richard that she doesn’t just love him she actually likes him too Hmmm Hamilton seems to have a pretty fucked up take on relationships So far this was my least favorite book of the series I know this is a common complaint but I could care less what color the Nike swoops are It's curious that Hamilton pays such attention to detail over characters with horrible fashion sense The majority of the outfits are all black anyway And Jean Claudehe just reeks of a white trash wanna be goth who doesn't dress as if he is very interested in attracting women Black jeans with knee high velvet boots White billowy shirt that is completely unbuttoned except for the ruby pendant at the collar Is that attractive? No No it is not It's just bad taste I keep imagining some acne afflicted kid at a renaissance fair YuckGet back to the Zombie raising Anita

    Plot1 Client walks into Anita's office and asks her to do something She refuses2 RELATIONSHIP DRAMA3 Dolph calls her to the scene of the crime4 Someone attacks Anita for no good reason5 The most disgusting crime scene EVAH6 MORE RELATIONSHIP DRAMA7 Oh crap there's a plot we're supposed to tie up Okay well X does it8 Jean ClaudeRichard tries to get in Anita's pants Anita makes stupid agreement9 BIG SHOWDOWNThese books are getting formulaic I guess if the formula were a bit interesting I wouldn't mind so much And in fact towards the beginning of this book I really liked it a lot I actually was tempted to give it 4 stars and declare it my favorite so farAnd then the RELATIONSHIP DRAMA beganNow I understand why Anita is kinda iffy about Richard He's a werewolf after all and I too would be a bit hesitant before committing to a guy like that But 1 she's considering committing after maybe two months of dating she started dating him that October and this book is set in December and 2 she was wounded after a fiance dumped her For point 1 I must ask Really? I though Anita had a head on her shoulders underneath that poufy unmanageable hair Why would she even hastily agree to marry Richard? Other than she refuses to have premarital sex because of her last relationship and this woman SERIOUSLY needs to get laidNOTE 1 I know that in a few books I am going to eat those wordsNOTE 2 I have NO PROBLEMS with a person wanting to wait before having sex That isn't the problem The problem isSo Anita has sex with her fiance and he dumps her Yeah that's rough but we've all gone through relationship troubles What makes her failed engagement TEH WORST EVAH? Of course maybe this is supposed to show her immaturity she is only 24 after allOkay let's say I buy all this relationship drama with Richard and for the most part I do What I do NOT understand is why Anita is so stupid to allow Jean Claude the dude she's been trying to foist off her for the last three books suddenly force her into dating him Anita the guy is a creepy stalker dude LET HIM BE Don't date a guy like thatAnd that is what makes up a good 50% of the novel About 10% is Anita getting into a pssing match with someone because what book would be complete without Anita having to prove how awesome and adept she is? and the rest is just action scene after action sceneThe actual mystery is interesting Disappearing shapeshifters? Looking into the werewolf subculture? Yeah I'll buy that But after awhile I felt LKH was just tossing stuff at us to keep up the breakneck pace the entire events of this book occur in less than a week Werewolf snuff films Anita killing a werewolf Anita's relationship dramaall of this occurs so uickly we barely have time to breath and think in between scenes Even Anita is run ragged that woman had better have the best damn health insurance because by God she goes to the hospital probably THREE TIMES in this book alone And for God's sake let the woman get a whole f#ing night of sleep okay?And Anita? Ugh how the hell does this unpleasant unlikable rude arrogant woman get even ONE guy after her much less TWO? It's absolutely ridiculous If I were a man I'd be running the other direction from her I'm guessing that Jean Claude and Richard are both extremely desperate to get laid But even that isn't true Jean Claude has some German vampire chick after his marbled pecks barely concealed by his god awful frilly shirtsAnd you know what? I don't have to know what every gorram character is wearing in these books I don't need to know if Anita is wearing a red sweater with an emerald green skirt and jacket and the jacket can't uite cover the Browning I don't need an analysis of what knee high black velvet boots Jean Claude is using to complete his f#ing awful outfit I don't care if Casper is wearing a tweed jacket or jeans or just his birthday suit I don't need to know that Anita has changed out of those HORRIBLE heels because REAL WOMEN can't wear those things into her black Nikes to conceal all the blood and guts she gets in contact with I DON'T CAREWhat I DO care about is an interesting story If you are going to go the route of Romantic Drama don't bother with a mystery plot But if you have a mystery plot don't spend of the book talking about how much of Jean Claude's nipple we can see and whether or not Anita is going to marry RichardOn a brighter note because this review suddenly became WAY negative than I intended I still like Ronnie and am even liking Dolph And I do like seeing all these other mythological creatures appear And when they actually attempt to solve the mystery it is pretty good Oh and I do think the action seuences are written pretty damn wellIf I were a smart person I'd probably stop here but I do really want to see how the series progresses and if it gets better before it gets worse If you've read up to this book and have liked the ones before I have no doubt you will probably like this one as well But if the earlier books haven't sold you it's doubtful this one is going to change your mind

    This book begins where the previous left off so your best bet is to read these in order so you can figure out how these tangled relationships develop into the mess that becomes Anita’s love life Anita Animator of the Dead is seriously dating Richard the werewolf and is beginning to realize the perils of dating a “monster” Jean Claude her other would be beau is sticking his nose in their business because he’s a jealous little vampire man and hasn’t been able to woo Anita with his vampire charms and sea blue orbs of promised delight I’m not a real big fan of the Jean Claude here He does his best to ruin things for Richard and comes across as a bit of a mean spirited brat I was rooting for Richard in this book His feelings seemed real and I wanted him to have Anita his teaching job and a peaceful normal life If you hope for that too you may not want to read too much further along in this series Anita is still raising zombies and helping out the spook suad but I noticed she begins to spend time with the monsters and their politics here than in any of the previous books She encounters evil vamp Gretchen as well as enters into the midst of the lycanthrope pack where she meets sadistic Marcus and Raina and sees first hand what the lycanthropes are capable of underneath all of the beauty We also get glimpses of hard ass “I don’t bluff” Anita who refuses to back down from any big boy It gets a little annoying in later books but here it still works she’s still got shit to prove Edward AKA Death plays a big role in this one and he’s always an enigmatic character who keeps my interest high On the downside we are once again inundated with endless boring descriptions of the hidden guns and the Nike swish color mine is silver by the way in case you’re dying to know Are you one of those freaks who will spend a sleepless night if you don’t have the most insignificant of details about Dolph’s wardrobe? Not to worry here you go ”His hands were plunged into pockets of a long black trench coat The coat looked too thin for the weather but maybe it was lined though he was a little bit too bulky to leave room for him and a lining in the same coat”I don’t know about you but I wasn’t holding my breath wondering if Dolph wore a lined coat or not Sheesh Tell me something interesting and relevant to the story like the fit of his undies or the secret spot he applies his cologne and I may finally stop complaining about these detailsSeriously though I like this book a whole bunch and think it is a solid entry in the series Its old school Anita and her conflicted feelings about her two sexy men way back before she was uber powerful and attractive to every male in sight Here she is still human with benefits just starting to make an appearance She is vulnerable and I can relate to her need to be a tough girl There are several subplots but not enough to hurt my brain lots of paranormal action and a whole lot of gore along with that slow burning sexual tension between the characters that I remember so well I’m having a lot of fun revisiting this series and the imaginative world Laurell K Hamilton built a decade or so ago

    WARNING This book is twisted and brilliant Review contains certain details that are upsetting and some sexual reference is used Thus the review will touch on a few details that are disgusting and unacceptable to sensitive and closed minds If you are either of the above please do not continue to read this review I love this book The Anita Blake series is AWESOME Unfortunately there are a few books in this series that just flat out stink The Lunatic Cafe is most definitely NOT one of those books Filled with skinned and gutted victims bestial pornographic snuff films and forced romantic tangles The Lunatic Cafe is by far one of the most interesting books in the Anita Blake series the first half of the series anyways I’ve always been a little twisted Curiously intrigued by things that make others gag What can I say? I’m a little weird With that said keep in mind when you read this book that although left intrigued and wondering that is not an implication of preference or justification of lifestyles by others To each his own I just needed to explain this little bit to avoid confusion and concern by loved ones I was so excited to read this book that I completely forgot to highlight some fun parts for previewing pleasure I did however highlight a paragraph from one of the crime scenes I think it’s totally rockin’ awesome You may wrinkle your nose and find yourself disgusted Woo hoo for individualism Ragged furrows ran down the right side of his face One claw had sliced over the eye spilling blood and thick globs of eyeball down his cheek The lower jaw was crushed as if some great hand had grabbed it and sueezed It made the face look unfinished only half there It must have hurt like hell but it hadn’t killed him More’s the pity The handsome Richard viewed as a monster? The sexy Jean Claude grasping leverage to hostage intimate moments from Anita? A sexual sadist Raina an alpha werewolf to the local pack and Richard’s former lover climbs under Blake’s skin and wiggles around leaving Blake disgusted with the idea that Richard could ever be involved with such a monster Nasty manipulative witches Nagas seeking rescue Shapeshifters missing This book has a wide range of plots that continually catch you off guard Just when you think you’ve figured it all out you’re blindsided by something entirely unexpected and delicious I recommend this book to curious minds those pushing lines of moral reality and those with their feet firmly planted on the ground There is to a normal life and this book covers several aspects of life that are shunned and ignored by a society of manners and a certain set of acceptable sexual standards ADULTS ONLY I highly recommend you store this book away from curious little hands Although open minded I strenuously object to younger minds reading this book And even so here on out ANY book from this series Filled with beautifully crafted and blood dripping crime scenes obscenely provocative and perverted sexual content The Lunatic Cafe will leave you wondering just how far other people will go to satisfy their needs and desires “There are roads to monsterdom than most people realize” Woo hoo HAPPY READING

    This is turning into a very interesting love triangle between Richard and Jean ClaudeFinally We get some progression in Anita's personal love life She finally let her guard down a little and admitted that she loved Richard and Jean Claude Oh and she even allowed a little heavy kissing Lol No heavy petting yet but a girl can dreamAnita Blake's ThemeAnita's still a complete hard ass and what can I say? I like it This was action packed and full of murder and gore

  8. Lena Lena says:

    She gave that rich bedroom laugh again “I am alpha Ms Blake I can do a great many things that most shifters cannot” Raina Re listen I had forgotten that she mounted the swan pelt; Anita the savageShape shifters are going missing in St Louis and the monsters won’t talk to the police but they will talk to Anita Blake They would have earlier if not for Richard Bad Richard This is the first book where things start to go south Richard is too much her opposite The sort of relationship with drag out fights before the first date It just gets uglierStill a damn good storyAnd I love the ones Edward is inCasting choices

  9. Jordan Jordan says:

    One of my first book I read that starting me reading Vampire books I remember being blown away by the female character in this book I had never read anything like her before Also the idea of having a female character that is truly in love with two completely different men and she is allowed to have both of them Yeah we need books like this This is really a great series at least the first 11 books are great Way better than anything written by Stephanie Meyer HA

  10. Ken Ken says:

    With each book in this series Anita Blake is really growing on me as a character I’m finding that I’m enjoying each instalment and as I’m progressing through the seriesSet after the events of the previous novel Anita is asked to investigate a series of shapeshifter disappearancesThe main focus of the novel delves into Anita’s personal life with werewolf boyfriend Richard and the continued advances of vampire Jean ClaudeA WerewolfVampire love triangle instantly draws parallels to TwilightBut with this book initially published during the mid 90’s and Anita’s kickass attitude the storyline still feels fresh and interesting 20 years laterThe mystery itself was interesting and helped keep up the paceHamilton perfectly blends the romance and action perfectly
