My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I usually save reviews for indie titles, but felt I had to justify my scoring for this novel. I gave this a 3 as goodreads doesn’t have half stars. I love Anita Blake novels, but this one just didn’t gel with me.
First few chapters are exposition that seems like a ‘how to’ guide to polyamory & guide to lycanthrope social structure.
The rest is pretty much sex scenes, and not much plot or action (other than the sex). However, there is some character and story progression. By the end Anita has learned something new about herself -& some new ‘skills’. Also, relationships of characters have developed. Think there maybe hints of a new story line too. Will see when read the next installment of Anita Blake ‘Dead Ice’. I guess this story will appeal to readers who enjoy the sex scenes more than the violence, but it just didn’t appeal to me.
