Shelves: reviews-completed Out of the entire series, one of my favorite characters is Nathaniel. So when I realized that this is the book he would be introduced into.. I was like woo hoo! Ok, now that I have that out of my system, I can move forward with the tid bits of this and thats I have for this book. Another brilliant piece of work by Laurell Hamilton! The twists in this book are amazing, and they end up playing through to the end of the series.
Its neat to be able to reread a series and pick up on all the little Out of the entire series, one of my favorite characters is Nathaniel. Love triangle, Anita, Jean-Claude and Richard.
Go figure. I was the first human so honored. Thus far, the books in this series hop back and forth within basically the same theme. Find the bad guys. Get hurt. Seek revenge. Kill the bad guys.
Make love to a hottie. There have been many deeply disturbing scenes in a few of the books so far, and this book definitely does not disappoint. You have the Traveler.
A super-duper vampire that finds a suitably sexy male host and takes over the controls for a while. The Traveler and his sexy homosexual lover use and abuse the borrowed bodies as they deem fit. You have the Master of Beasts, Padma and his sidekick rapist son Fernando. Being the Master of Beasts, Padma is able to put forth a call to the shapeshifter leaders of the city and they apparently are unable to refuse.
The leopards, the werewolves and the rats. Between being skinned alive for wall decoration, repeatedly raped or forced into an eternity of furriness, Padma is one of my least favorite characters in this book. He is. I just dislike him And his bastard of a son. After finding out that Fernando is one of a gang that raped Sylvie, Blake promises Sylvie that they will all die.
Hell YES! Then you have Yvette! Now, can you imagine being intimate with a woman who all of a sudden starts rotting and oozing bodily fluids all over the place? Asher is introduced in this book. The choking bitterness of hate engulfs him, and he wants to see Jean-Claude suffer as he has for the past two centuries. The progression with Asher, Anita and Jean-Claude is fun. I recommend this book to adults ONLY. This book contains moderate to extreme deviant sexual scenes.
The violence is astounding with a two thumbs up from me.
