Danse Macabre has no plot at all. Contains exclusively long discussions and problems with the ardeur therefore leading to sex scenes. I could go on and on things bugging me in this book. Here are a few:
Funny isn’t it that LKH has to justify Anita having compulsory sex. First trough the munim of Raina and then apparently that was not enough and the munim gets discarded in favor of the ardeur. Even odder is Anita possessing all the vamp powers there possibly is without being a vampire, even surpassing the strongest vampires. LKH made her immortal.
Anita gets infected basically by all the weres existing. Yet she still remains ‘human’ and doesn’t shift in any animal or goes cuckoo like Chimera? Actually in my mind she does but nobody in Anita’s entourage tells her she seriously needs help.
I’m a couple of chapters in Harlequin and I finally made my decision. It is with much sadness and regret I end the Anita Blake series with this book, Danse Macabre. I think I’ve put up with it long enough. I turned a blind eye on its flaws for most of the last books (since Obsidian Butterfly) but not any longer. Enough is enough.
