Guilty Pleasures by LK Hamilton

19 April 2008 Jackie 3

I’m a huge fan of Laurell K. Hamilton and when her first Anita Blake novel was picked up by Marvel to be a new graphic novel (aka comic), I was excited. Guilty Pleasures is going to have 12 graphic novels come out with the last one to be published in […]

The Harlequin by LK Hamilton (Audiobook)

21 February 2008 Jackie 0

I just finished my first audio book. Since Laurell K. Hamilton’s new novel Blood Noir will be out in June, I decided to listen to the Harlequin. I’ve already given a review on the novel, so this one will be on the audio book only. The novel was read by […]

Sunshine by R. McKinley

12 February 2008 Jackie 0

I pride myself for being honest with all of my reviews, so I’m going to be truthful. Sunshine by Robin McKinley is such a slow read. It took me several days to read it, but not because it was boring or I couldn’t get into it. It’s actually the exact […]

Serials

11 January 2008 Jackie 1

I thought I would put a list out there of different series that are, in my opinion, good. They may not be the greatest to everyone, but they are an enjoyable read. This is just a list of what I have read, so this list may grow over time. There’s […]

the Harlequin by LK Hamilton

25 June 2007 Jackie 0

I can stop pacing the apartment now!  I finally got my hands on the latest Anita Blake book – the Harlequin – and I have to say, it was well worth the wait. The succubus/incubus relationship that has been predominate in the last couple of books takes a back seat […]

Narcissus in Chains, Cerulean Sins and Incubus Dreams by L.K. Hamilton

16 May 2006 Jackie 0

Narcissus in Chains, Cerulean Sins and Incubus Dreams share one common thread….sex. While sex has always been a prevailing theme throughout the series (who is Anita sleeping with now?), it becomes a part of the plot device when Jean-Claude’s incubus origins are transferred to Anita through their marks.

While I could go into the plot, and give a summary of what the bad guys want and what the action entails, I won’t because the plot only touches on the underlying theme of sex that Hamilton begins to include in her books. Plus, you should read it. If I give you the main plot devices and tell you what goes on, where will you get the motivation to read it?

Blue Moon & Obsidian Butterfly by LK Hamilton

12 May 2006 Jackie 0

Blue Moon and Obsidian Butterfly has one thing in common – self discovery and individual discovery. Well, I guess that’s two things, but it’s the same idea. In Blue Moon, Anita is called in to Tennessee to help bail Richard out of some problems he has encountered. While in Tennessee, […]

Burnt Offerings by LK Hamilton

11 May 2006 Jackie 0

I like to think of Burnt Offerings as the turning point in the Anita Blake series due to the introduction of the vampire Asher and the wereleopards, most especially Nathaniel. We’ve been slowly introduced to Asher in a couple of the previous novels and now we get to meet the […]

the Killing Dance by LK Hamilton

10 May 2006 Jackie 0

The Killing Dance gives us the climax of the relationship between Anita, Richard, and Jean-Claude and it ends pretty much like we’ve been lead to believe. But of course, you’ve already figured that out if you’ve been reading the books. The struggle between Richard and his rival, Marcus, for the […]
