The Killing Dance: LKH really blows it on this one

I enjoyed ANITA BLAKE, VAMPIRE HUNTER up to this point, but Laurell K. Hamilton really blows it on this one. Anita has turned into a hypocrite and any claim she had to integrity was shredded within the first 3 chapters of the next book. Hamilton has destroyed her main character — Anita is turning into a nasty tramp. We are talking about a complete reversal of the sharp-edged but relatively moral person she started out as. What a shame.

I should admit that The Killing Dance must have been well conceived and written because it really affected me — I was utterly devastated.

JOHN HULET (on FanLit's staff July 2007 -- March 2015) is a member of the Utah Army National Guard. John’s experiences have often left a great void that has been filled by countless hours spent between the pages of a book lost in the words and images of the authors he admires. During a 12 month tour of Iraq, he spent well over $1000 on books and found sanity in the process. John lives in Utah and works slavishly to prepare soldiers to serve their country with the honor and distinction that Sturm Brightblade or Arithon s’Ffalenn would be proud of. John retired from FanLit in March 2015 after being with us for nearly 8 years.

  1. I don’t remember when I stopped reading the series. Book 6? 7? But yeah. The first book was amazing–action, plot, mystery, intrigue and…it went steadily downhill with each book. Although sometime in there before I stopped reading it wasn’t a “steady” downhill, it was more like a “jump off a cliff, let’s not bother with plot or mystery. Let’s go straight for smarm.”

    But hey, I doubt she cares what I think. From what I can tell, she still has plenty of fans.
