Mailbox Surprise (9-25-16)








In her twenty-fifth adventure, vampire hunter and necromancer Anita Blake learns that evil is in the eye of the beholder...

Anita has never seen Damian, her vampire servant, in such a state. The rising sun doesn’t usher in the peaceful death that he desperately needs. Instead, he’s being bombarded with violent nightmares and blood sweats.

And now, with Damian at his most vulnerable, Anita needs him the most. The vampire who created him, who subjected him to centuries of torture, might be losing control, allowing rogue vampires to run wild and break one of their kind’s few strict taboos.

Some say love is a great motivator, but hatred gets the job done, too. And when Anita joins forces with her friend Edward to stop the carnage, Damian will be at their side, even if it means traveling back to the land where all his nightmares spring from...a place that couldn’t be less welcoming to a vampire, an assassin, and a necromancer.





Crimson Death by Laurell K Hamilton






 I had to make an extra side note about Crimson Death, this book is major you guys its even bigger than Dead Ice was.

I know a lot of readers that made a big deal about how big Dead Ice was in size and length but Crimson trumps it by far. I took an extra pic just to compare the two.






For those of you who don't know off the top of their heads, Dead Ice was around 560 pages. Crimson Death is around 720 pages. This is major.

I don't know whether to be thrilled or terrified. Is it more poly sexual scenes acting as filler? Is it repetitious dialogue and plot being repeated over and over? Is Hamilton finally doing something to redeem the last ten plus books that have been thought of as a waste? I'm anxious to find out. Anyone else have thoughts? Hopes? Anticipations? ... Fears?
