I finally finished reading The Harlequin by Laurell K Hamilton. The reason it took a long time was because her books are getting too weird. But I now determined to read the rest of the Anita Blake book series. I love the mystery part of the books, but not the sex. Anyway, this book is the fifteen book of the Anita Blake book series.
Warning: there is some violence, some sad parts, and some sex parts.
In this book, Anita was going on a date with one of her many men. The date was cut short because she given a present. Inside was a white mask. She went to Jean-Claude to find out what the mask meant. The mask meant a group of vampires were after her and Jean-Claude. She thought it had to do with a vampire “church.” She and Jean-Claude help stop some bad things happening in that “church” and she was investigating two murders that happened at that “church.” The group of vampires that were after them were called the Harlequin. No one knew who the vampires were and no one really talked about them. They sent white masks to be a signal they wanted to talk. If they sent a black mask, they were there to kill you. They couldn’t kill you without sending the black mask first. Two of the Harlequin tried to kill Anita, Jean-Claude, and Richard which broke the rules. They almost did die. The “church” was actually a decoy. The two Harlequin vampires were using the “church” members’ powers to get enough power to kill Jean-Claude so they could take over the city. Anita and her team did win the battle.
I sorta liked this book. I’m still listening to Skin Trade by Laurell K Hamilton. It is the 17th book of the book series.
