Malcolm, head of the vampire Church of Eternal Life, is no particular friend to Anita Blake. So when he shows up in her office, to ask for her help against creatures so feared that no vampire will willingly speak their name, Anita is surprised. But she believes him. Malcolm may not be a Master of the City, but he's an old and powerful vampire, a leader of men, and he does not easily ask for help--especially from Anita and Jean-Claude, whose power Malcolm considers corrupt. That was the first warning of The Harlequin. The second warning is presented like a gift, left where she'd be sure to find it, with "Anita" printed on the box. Inside, carefully wrapped in folds of pristine tissue paper, is a white mask, utterly plain. The fact that it's white, Jean-Claude tells her, is the good news. White means they are only being watched.… (mere)

This was probably the best Anita book I've since the...well since the ardeur (sp) started and Anita became a whore. Sorry to say that because I love Anita, but she did turn into quite the whore... it was getting to the point where I thought Ms. Hamilton had crossed wires, between the Anita Blake series and the Meredith Gentry series. Because in Anita's first 8 or 9 book maybe less she was this complete barney bad-ass that kicked anyone's ass the f****ed with her. Then she started turning into this whiny wimpering, sex fiend. Then in the Meredith books, she's supposed to sleep around with as many guys as possible, and that was the whole basis of the books, to stay alive, and screw as many fairies as possible to concieve a child to gain the throne. But somehow they both totally flip-flopped, Anita went into whore mode, and Merry turned into the barney bad ass. Now don't get me wrong I love both series, and I a still hoping the the Meredith Gentry series will continue for a little longer. It just seems odd how the main female character flip flops into what another lead female character in another story is supposed to be.

Anywho, this book I enjoy immensely. One the lack of sex was great, it was a nice change of pace from how the series is going. Two you get to see Edward again, I just love him. Three Anita is having doubts about Nathaniel, well in my opinion... ABOUT DAMNED TIME. I like Nathaniel, but I don't see him as Anita's type, he's too submissive for my taste. Four the best best BEST part of the book, is when Anita went off on Richard, that she had finally had enough of his bullsh*t. Jean-Claude too it was so great, I was whooping for them both while reading that. Richard is a self rightous bastard, who doesn't know his a$$ from his head. I totally loved it though, never liked the guy... there was a book or two where I had thought that maybe he was deemable then he went and screwed things up again. Wish him the best but BUBYE BUCKAROO! ( )

I finally put my finger on why Anita bugs me so in ways she didn't at the beginning of the series. It's that whenever she gets called a whore--and she does often--she says "I'm not a whore, the ardeur made me do it." Dude, get over it. Just embrace the fact that you like to have sex with a lot of pretty men, sometimes more than one at a time. Honest, it's okay to do it, write it, read it. You don't need to excuse or rationalize it.

I'd be way happier if Anita returned to kicking ass, raising zombies, and gave me a very brief monologue about how she wants to be satisfied when she gets home. I'd even be happy if she continued on with explorations of her own morality and beliefs, but all the excuses have got to go. It makes me feel as if LKH thinks she's writing something *dirty* and that's no fun to read. ( )

I'd been away from this series for a while, but coming back into it was like finding an old friend. Hamilton's characters are so specific and real that, this far into the series, the character struggles and the dynamics among them flow seamlessly into the fast-paced plotting, dialogue, and steamed up romance. There were moments in this book that reminded me why I fell in love with the series to begin with, and moments that were so striking, so flawlessly drawn, that they reminded me why other urban fantasy I come across just doesn't really come close to the power of this series.

There are so many characters, and the details of things are so intricate at this point that I think readers would have to start with the earlier books in order to enjoy this one, but I certainly think it lives up to the precedent that this series has set for itself. ( )

I mean... there were pieces of what could have been a really good story here. But what a waste of Edward. And I still vehemently dislike Richard. And seriously, the power of love and friendship? ( )

To Jonathon, who never freaks about my choice of research. He took away my serial killer books, at my request. When I was ready he gave them back. He's helping me understand that just because someone else thinks you're a monster doesn't mean that you are. Even if that person says they love you. Here's to finding love that builds you up, instead of breaking you down.
