The new “Anita Blake” novel came out this week, and I really like it for the most part. I like that Anita and Richard both to seem to have “grown up” not as much personal or inner drama, drama, drama. I am glad the oh so much worried about “death” in this book didnt turn out to be someone I really love in this series. I have seen several others leave low approval of this book as Anita doesnt do much cop/marshal work, but she did help out as a marashal in a very big way I thought. And I really liked that this time she didnt have a bunch of bigoted male cops or agents to treat her like crap as they always seem to do previously. I especially liked how “love” is the major weapon that is needed to win this new war beginning.
