I honestly cannot tell if these books are getting better and better or worse and worse. It's like a black hole of sugary goodness - you know it's rotting you from the inside out, but you just keep falling anyway.

Has the writing gotten any better? Absolutely not. This third book in the series had more typos than you could shake a stick at (not that I'm sure that shaking a stick could really prove much of anything). Has Anita's annoying inner dialogue been improved? Yeah...riiiiiiight. (Did you get that joke?)

But yet there is something almost intangible that makes me want to keep reading these damn books. Will it bring me through the dozens of volumes left? Who knows?

When I began reading this series, a couple of weeks ago, I wasn't to thrilled about it. I didn't know what it was about, outside of Vampires. This third book in the series, shows a funny, witty, Anita Blake. I have certain ideas in my mind that I would like to see happen, but I will have to wait until I read more. The idea of Vampires, humans, zombies, and shape shifters is rather intriguing and Mrs. Hamilton has done a great job so far.

In "Circus of the Damned" Laurell K. Hamilton builds on her previous novels to give a fuller and more frightening picture of an alternate earth where vampires, werewolves and other monsters are commonplace members of modern society. Whilst helping the St. Louis Police investigate a pair of human murders carried out by an unknown vampire pack, Anita Blake realizes that there is a new master vampire in the city, one that is intent on terrorizing the masses and challenging Jean-Claude as Master of the City. Anita, the animator / vampire slayer / necromancer, returns in a fast-paced, riveting thriller that does not let the reader go, not even for a second. The earlier books of the Anita Blake series are fun, somewhat your distinctive detective stories with a bloodsucking twist. They also have the advantage of a strong female lead, some bizarre sidekicks and a mild freshening up of your average dark fantasy/horror staples like vampires and weres. Compared to her previous books, I found that this one has many more humorous moments with Anita having many of the best one-liners in the book, the level of action and gore is maintained throughout whilst the sexual tension between Anita and her two men increases. This book contains many new plotlines and characters which will be continued throughout other books, so it's fairly important to read this book if you're going to appreciate the other books of the series.
