Book Review: Dance Macabre by Laurell K. Hamilton

I have just finished reading Laurell K. Hamilton's latest book: Danse Macabre, where the reader once again has the possibility to enter Anita Blake's life in a world where vampires and werewolves are very, very real.   

I really enjoy the Anita Blake books, which starts with the novel Guilty Pleasures. In the first book the reader is introduced to Anita Blake, who is a professional zombie-raiser and help out on crime scenes every now and then. She lives alone in a small flat together with her stuffed toy penguins and all her guns. As the books continue, so does her life and she get more and more involved in vampire and werewolves politics. As her power increases she gets dangerous, but in the meantime her love life gets confused and complicated.

I think that the author, Hamilton, has created a great atmosphere around the Anita Blake novels. The description of what a society would look like if vampires and werewolves were real is nicely described; a little bit like in the Charlaine Harris' novels. The way the vampires try to act to get accepted and the way werewolves (and other were-animals) try to hide their identity, since they are usually the targets of racism, adds to the realism of the books.

Unfortunately I think that the latest book focus a little bit to much on Anita Blake's personal life, since I prefer to read more about how she blasts evil vampires into the next week, instead of her worries about missing her latest period. But, still, Danse Macabre is highly recommended and if you haven't read Hamilton's books before:

Lucky you, there are 13 nice vampire books out there waiting for you!  

Yours sincerely/
