Laurell K. Hamilton: Obsidian Butterfly

Yes, I was late writing about Blue Moon, so I’m doing both books at the same time.

Since Obsidian Butterfly is still so fresh in my mind (I only finished it yesterday), I have to say I think this one is up to now the most aggresive, gory and horror-like book in Anita series (and that series is among the genre the goriest in my opinion).

This is also the book where we get to know Edward better. And Anita is not communicating with either of her beaus until the end of the book, and then only with Jean-Claude.

This time around, the vampires are of Aztec origin and think of themselves as gods, they also come with some seriously scary monsters and powers.

As you can guess by now, there is never only one situation Anita is involved in, but in the end they always seem to be connected.

And not only is this book extremely violent, Anita gets to be the recipient of quite a lot of that. Good for her she is not your regular human otherwise she wouldn’t be alive anymore.

Anyway, the book ends up with Anita having another guy thinking she is the woman for him (actually soulmate) and hoping she never gets to see him (not gonna happen). 🙂
This is just the beginning of the series of man that are going to get into that same situation. Oh, so much more problems are ahead for our little necromancer (only in stature and nothing else).

    Hey Rose, no it's not the first. They are exciting (among other things) 🙂 – the first one is Guilty Pleasures.I should probably list all of the previous ones with the reviews.

    Hi Ines, I finally am getting back into reading the Anita Blake series (for the third time). Once I start a book I can't put it down! Most likely for fear that the nightmares will come if I don't read to the end. I agree with your review, most especially the gore. And yes, this does seem to be the point where Anita's "love" life is at it's most quiet.My review is up here. Have a great day!

    SVZ, I'm glad to see you're back on track. 🙂 I on the other hand am not at the moment. I got sidetracked by some other books I wanted to read but as my vacation is drawing near, then I'll have time to finish this (I can't wait actually). I'm off to read what you said.


I love hearing your thoughts!
