First time in trade paperback: the third novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.
In Circus of the Damned-now in trade paperback for the first time-a rogue master vampire hits town, and Anita gets caught in the middle of an undead turf war. Jean-Claude, the Master Vamp of the city, wants her for his own-but his enemies have other plans. And to make matters worse, Anita takes a hit to the heart when she meets a stunningly handsome junior high science teacher named Richard Zeeman. They’re two humans caught in the crossfire-or so Anita thinks.
Time to wade into the alligators with Anita Blake again, well she calls them alligators, Monsters the usual. Me personally I like Vampires most of them anyways. She can however keep the lamia and all other snake like things. Overall the book is what I am coming to expect a lot of action and Anita getting into a lot of fights, a lot of trouble and some people being dead. Edward makes an appearance again and you know for a killer I like him rather a lot. So why only 3 gems? I am so tired of Anita’s whining about Jean Claude. I mean seriously, okay I understand on some levels I do, but cripes. Even when it could have been life or death when another much more powerful and evil Vampire was going to take her and the whole city. I mean seriously already enough! So yes okay that is my biggest complaint and the level of the fuss really for me distracted from the rest. I will however be reading the next book…she has to stop fussing sometime right?
