Review: Bloody Bones by Laurell K. Hamilton

Bloody Bones (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter)
Book: Bloody Bones (Vampire Hunter #5: Anita Blake Series)
Author: Laurell K. Hamilton
Pages: 384
Publisher: Berkley Trade
ISBN: 0515134465
When Anita Blake's boss at Animators, Inc., informs her that she's expected to raise 300-year-old zombies from a field of jumbled bones just to settle a land dispute, she's understandably annoyed. But as soon as she arrives in Branson, Missouri, to do the deed, the job gets more interesting. A psychotic sword-wielding vampire starts committing multiple murders in the area, and Anita must call on Jean-Claude, her powerful fanged suitor, for help. As always, Anita prevails over the un-dead, keeping Jean-Claude at arm's length, clearing the cemetery land of an ancient enchantment, and nailing the vampir-ic killer in one fell swoop


So we have reached the fifth book of the series. Like the first four series, Bloody Bones is packed with hard core fighting, bitching and all that macho stuff that Anita seems to handle quite well. I have enjoyed reading how Anita manages to maintain a balance in her life and how she handles every obstacle effortlessly. 

The book is good, but compared to the first four, this was quite a long read. I mean, I didn't quite enjoy this as much as the first four books. But it doesn't mean that it is not worth reading. I enjoy the love triangle but it becomes a drag throughout the story. Throughout the series, Anita is pictured to be a strong independent woman but sometimes she comes off bitchy. I don't know why. Still a good book, though not as good as the first 4.


  1. I've been curious about this series. I'll have to pick up the first book.

  2. I LOVE LOVE this series... Anita is kick ass, but when emotions enter she gets a little off balance. But the series is great!


I love comments. Leave some love and I'll get back to you soon lovelies. <3
