Series # 18 Anita Blake

When Anita Blake meets with prospective client Tony Bennington, who is desperate to have her reanimate his recently deceased wife, she is full of sympathy for his loss. Anita knows something about love, and she knows everything there is to know about loss. But what she also knows, though Tony Bennington seems unwilling to be convinced, is that the thing she can do as a necromancer isn't the miracle he thinks he needs. The creature that Anita could coerce to step out of the late Mrs. Bennington's grave would not be the lovely Mrs. Bennington. Not really. And not for long.

I picked this book up because Series

What I liked the Most? Yes an old fashioned Anita Blake - raising zombies

What I liked the Least? What happened to morals?

Review:After reading this novella I ranted again at such a waste of time (even if it was only an hour), the total waste of money, the senseless sex and yet another slave. I had some serious issues with this book.
  • It was way too short for a hard cover full price book. Why not put it out in a soft cover trade and lower the price.
  • The plot/story line = totally forgettable.
  • What happened to the plot twists and character development that was the staple ingrediant of her earlier books?
  • Where is Anita's police work and the relationships with those characters?

This is purely "filler" for a series, which felt like an insult to the readers. I would prefer to wait the 6 months to a year (or longer) for a better written, longer, a better developed story.

Recommended to:No one

Best Quote: Really nothing stood out

Challenges: None
