I finished reading Serpentine by Laurell K Hamilton. It is the twenty-sixth book of the Anita Blake book series. It is the latest book in the book series. There is supposed to be a new book coming out in August.
NOTE: This is the last book I’m going to read of the Anita Blake book series. Yes, I made the mistake of seeing what the next book will be like and the summary does sound good, but what the summary doesn’t tell is why I want to quit reading this book series. I’m tired of the weird multiple sex (yes I can skip the parts which I have done with the previous books) and the emotions of Anita. Sometimes her emotions bring down the book. My character now is Edward/Ted, not Anita which is the main character.
Big Warning: there are two sex scenes, some gross parts, and some violence.
In this book, Anita goes down to Florida for Edward/Ted and Donna’s wedding. One of the bridesmaids goes crazy threatening to tell Donna’s little girl that Edward/Ted was a cheating on Donna. He is not cheating on her. The bridesmaid stabs Donna’s son. Then a woman goes missing and they try to find her. But before they do another woman goes missing too. One of the police officers uses magic to try to get one of Anita’s boyfriends to confess to the crime. Then a body of the first woman is found. It was killed by something not quite human. Anita gets the idea to use her boyfriend as a scent animal to find the other woman which they do. Then two other women go missing. They track them down and find out the police officer who used magic was involved with the kidnapping. They find out that a big huge monster is the one who kill the first girl in order to do a ritual to cure a snake curse.
I did like this book. Next I’m listening to The Bishop’s Pawn by Steve Berry. It is the thirteen book of the Cotton Malone book series.
