Dead Ice by Laurell K Hamilton
Goodreads Rating: 3 stars
As much as I do love Anita Blake in all of her poly glory, I really do miss when this series was more horror and gore than sex. Don’t get me wrong, the sex scenes are great and so well constructed that it feels like the reader is a part of the entire storyline, but I miss Edward, and Wicked and Truth…I miss the books that kept me up ALL night reading because I literally couldn’t put it down.
This particular installment had a back story, such as the zombies being raised and their souls being placed in it, but it was primarily based around the many men in Anita’s life. I usually don’t have an issue with it, but I think it is time to have more horror book and a bit less romance, to help balance it out. I don’t think it will damage the integrity of the series to go back to Anita’s beginnings and have some real good vampire slaying and horror that leaves you with nightmares!
