OK so far I think this may have been the best so far in the series. I loved how Anita is becoming a bigger bad ass than she was before. ( )

I really loved this book. I am really enjoying the whole Anita Blake series thus far. I'm a little sad that Anita and Richard didn't work out, but never say never, right!? I really hope they end up together. I think that Jean-Claude is very sweet and romantic, but you can't get a better guy than Richard in my opinion. So, here's hope for Anita and Richard!!! : ( )

Anita has chosen Jean-Claude over Richard, though, of course, she can't just walk away from Richard altogether. It's never easy for her. A visiting council of vampires has come to town to investigate Jean-Claude and his group, including Anita and Jean-Claude. ( )

Dopo aver riletto due volte questo libro finalmente mi accingo a commentarlo come meriterebbe.
Posso dire che è uno, se non IL, libro che ho più apprezzato in tutta la saga.
Non so perchè ma l'entrata in scena dei pardi nella vita di Anita mi affascina in modo morboso xD
Nat è uno dei miei personaggi preferiti insieme al dolcissimo Step ^^
Sono dell'idea che prima o poi Richard si torverà una nuova Lupa e per questo Anita perderà parte della sua nuova 'famiglia'.
La vicinanza dei pardi (dato che è la sua Namir-Ra) secondo me l'aiuterà e renderà il seguito MOLTO più avvincente xDIn questo volume vediamo Richard che, come al solito, non riesce a mantenere il sague freddo, è potente ma nulla mi toglierà dall testa che non sarà mai un vero capo per i lupi. Non si accetta e non riesce ad essere equilibrato e freddo. L'aiuto di Anita sarebbe cruciale per il suo branco ma sappiamo bene che Richard non accetterà di dividerla con il Master. Non so, lo reputo un bel libro di 'transizione' e assestamento. Credo che presto ne vedremo delle belle! ( )

The plot was a bit tiring in parts, like Richard's constant bitchiness and attitude for example. We get it. Dude's pissed. Okay. Enough. And the constant games of cat and mouse with the vampires gets re-hashed over and over, but that's probably normal. I did enjoy learning a lot more of the power of a triumvirate and the power of the lukoi. And despite taking a while to get anywhere, the book redeemed itself in the last 50 pages or so.

As with a lot of her books lately, while they may not start off or be so great in the middle, by the time I finished and put the book down I was pleased. No regrets. ( )

Book description

That's what I've always said. That's what I've always believed. But now I'm the one sharing a bed with the Master Vampire of the City. Me, Anita Blake. The woman the vampires call the Executioner. From part of the solution, I've become part of the problem. So it hits close to home when an arsonist begins to target vampire-owned businesses all over town--an arsonist who seems to want to destroy more than just property. It's the monsters who are in danger now.

And it's up to the Executioner to save them from the inferno...
