The Lunatic Cafe (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter: Book 4)
3 journalers for this copy...
The zombie-raising business gets slow in December, so Anita Blake is starting to see some oddball cases. She's got a neatly typed list of eight missing lycanthropes given to her by Marcus, the leader of the local werewolf pack, who wants her to find them. The trouble is, Anita's occasionally furry boyfriend Richard is locked in a power struggle with Marcus. Jean-Claude, master vampire of the city and Anita's other love interest, is getting jealous as well. To top it off, Anita has to solve some horrific murders and keep her bounty-hunting friend Edward from killing Richard and Jean-Claude.
thanks Sunneschii! I wonder, why these covers have never been snarked before by http://www.smartbitchestrashybooks.com/ ...
I'm up to book four in the series now and there still isn't any sex. On the contrary, she wants to wait until she is married (?!!), especially after reading book 13 or so of the series this makes her look like a complete hypocrite. Even then she has to love everyone she sleeps with, so she doesn't change that much. But maybe that's just me. I also don't like how she can't stop herself from judging people for things they have no influence over. She considers shapeshifters monsters, and will only make exceptions for the people she knows and loves. Isn't that like saying "I have nothing against (insert minority here), some of my best friends are (minority), BUT (insert stupid preconception about said minority)"
The storyline is as usual completely over the top and she doesn't get to sleep or eat at all throughout the book that span several days. And you know what kills me? How incredibly badly dressed she must be, judging from the descriptions.
I still don't think the writing is very good. The author has a few things she likes to repeat throughout the book. In an earlier book it was "Bully for me", in this one it's "what of it?". It happens so oftern that it just looks like sloppy writing.
