Crimson Death by Laurell K. Hamilton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Not a bad addition to Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series. It does continue where the last book left us, but at this point in the series there are so many characters that there's almost no real expectation of remembering exactly who any of the new people are. Ms. Hamilton enjoy throwing people into big orgy piles and they are entertaining to read but not easy to follow along. I miss some of the older really good characters such as Wicked and Truth and am no longer that interested every time she throws new people at you.
At least in televisions shows or some other series if you have this many character in this many life threatening situations you expect people to die and this is the first book that I can remember in a long time where someone actually died, and it was a character you could actually remember their plot line too.
I also have almost no concept of how time passes in Anita's world. Not much progress has been made in her main relationships with the engagement and marriage is concerned but all of a sudden Cynric is heading to college and not the 16 year old boy anymore. It's all very weird. I have been a fan of Laurell K. Hamilton a long time but I miss when her intricate and detailed plots were the point of her books and not the sex.
