Hamilton knows how to spin a story that will suck you in and never release you. I was glad to see a little more action in this book. In the others it started to go away and was replaced with the sex scenes; which isn’t bad but I love to see Anita fight.

Synopsis

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: Ireland.


From the Hardcover edition.

Hamilton seems to have lost her trust that readers will figure out or not care about obsessive little details, needing to explain everything, often at great length. Only a terrific ending saved this book for me.

I will say without reservation that this book is way better than some of the crappy middle ones — I’m looking at you, Cerulean Sins, Skin Trade, and to a lesser extent Hit List. It’s not quite as good as Affliction, or as the non-boring parts of Dead Ice, but it’s all right.
