Jason is a werewolf. He's also one of Anita Blake's best friends and sometimes her lover. And right now he needs her - not to be a vampire hunter, or a federal marshal, or a necromancer, but because his father is dying. Anita can make him look like an everyday guy, helping him say good-bye to the abusive father he never loved. The fact that Jason is not 'everyday' and Anita is far from being just a pretty woman is something they figure they can keep under wraps for a couple of days in a small town. How hard can that be? ...
Jason is a werewolf. He's also one of Anita Blake's best friends and sometimes her lover. And right now he needs her - not to be a vampire hunter, or a federal marshal, or a necromancer, but because his father is dying. Anita can make him look like an everyday guy, helping him say good-bye to the abusive father he never loved. The fact that Jason is not 'everyday' and Anita is far from being just a pretty woman is something they figure they can keep under wraps for a couple of days in a small town. How hard can that be? Really, by now, Anita Blake should know better. And this is the weekend that Marmee Noir, ancient mother of all vampires, picks to make a move. Somehow she has cut the connection that binds Anita and vampire Master of the City Jean-Claude, leaving them vulnerable. Dangerous even as she sleeps, buried in darkness for a thousand years beneath the old country of Europe, Marmee Noir reaches out toward power - she has attacked Anita before, but never like this. Anita has what she wants - and now she's going to take it.

I've been an Anita Blake fan for years. This book did not disappoint. It was nice to see Anita step away from Jean Claude a little more. The action was non stop with several unexpected plot twists. I would highly recommend this book to any fan of the genre.

Always Excellent in the land of Ms. Blake
Book 16 of the Anite Blake Vampire Hunter series shows us more into the lesser known characters rather then just focusing on the basic Jan Claude, Anita and Richard and their joing of powers. Jason, who in previous books was only used for food or for lust, becomes the main male character of this book. We are shown more of his past and his feelings for Anita, and that tunes us more into how Anita feels for her friends and the men that are close in her life. Ms Hamilton has been making Anita into a softer character as of the past couple books and this turns her into a more likeable and readable character. And yes of course, there are the several graphic sex scenes that fill every book from both this series and the Merry Gentry series. These scenes are something of a thrill and slight reassurance that Ms. Hamilton knows that we need more then just violence and creatures that bump in the night to keep our interest. I throughly enjoyed the book and look forward to the publication of Book 17. I find myself not wanting to do anything else but read the newest book when it comes out, so I can see how my favorite fictional charaters are surviving. Kudos for another exceptional novel.
