This is book 17 in the series — enough with the Stand Alone Stuffing! There is way too much fluff, way too much piddling around in meaningless conversations, way too little time spent investigating and actually traee the bad guys. Louis, new playthings in tow, and life is back to some shade of normal.

Instead, LKH thumps us on the head over and over again about boys not believing girls can be taken seriously and concludes with a trite ending to super-powerful villains Well It starts out feeling very much like her first six novels in that Anita will be The Executioner tracking down a serial-killer Vampire, Vittorio.

Also, why has she emasculated every man in her life? Yeah, Edward watching Bella sleeping creepy.

That said, endless fights with the cops, repetitive conversations, and more wangst than an emo teenager’s LiveJournal make this book a drag and a bore to get through. In a very classic Anita-ness no-one actually has TIME to investigate so we then have the standard bad guy-kidnaps-people instead game.

This one just seemed to be there for no reason other than the fact that Anita slept with a 16 year old.
