This was a quick reading since it was a short novel, but let me say that I felt the same power of all the other books! In fact for me it's not the length that makes a book better or worse, it's what there's inside. Action, suspence, the unexpected, three of many features that in Anita Blake's world you can be sure you'll always find and that made this book a pleasure to read.
I missed Jean-Claude... I have to say that every time he's not in a book it's hard... Am I the only one who wants to read about him even if just for a few pages? Probably not the case, but I had all my faves here so, I was able to deal with Jean-Claude's absence, at least for now... And I found Nicky an interesting character. Maybe I shouldn't sympathize with him much but I can't control myself. Is it my fault if Anita always finds a handsome guy in the middle of the action?
