While the police check Dominga's basement, Anita sits on a couch and trades threats with the old lady. But there's something much nastier in the suburban neighborhood -- a zombie who attacks her in short order, and has to be wasted by a couple guys with flamethrowers. I'm so impressed by her awe-inspiring fighting skills. Why do they call her the "executioner" again?
But there's still one other bad guy to be dealt with -- Harold Gaynor, who intends to have Anita raise his preferred zombie whether she likes it or not. And he's in league with Dominga, who has raised an unholy horror to attack Anita -- but of course, Anita pulls her magically delicious necromantic powers out of her hat.
I'll give Laurell K Hamilton credit -- there are some brief moments where Anita Blake actually manages to kick butt, usually by beating someone with a chair or poking them in the eye. And there's a brief moment of awesomeness at the very end when we finally see Anita doing something really gross and weird with zombies.
Unfortunately, all parts of the story that DON'T involve actual fighting are pathetically boring -- Anita seems to spend most of the story standing around chitchatting or getting her butt kicked. The dialogue is simply awful ("What are you doing?" "Raising the dead, Dominga") and Hamilton still doesn't quite know how comics work (waaaayyyyy too much dialogue).Read more ›
