4.0 out of 5 stars DADDY DEXTER...,
This review is from: Dexter Is Delicious: Dexter Morgan (5) (Paperback)Well, now that Dexter is the darling, doting daddy of Lily Anne, his newborn daughter, his psyche is taking more of a turn for the normal. After all, not only is he married, but he has a child now. Could anything be more human than that? So, Dexter is even feeling human emotion, at times, which is somewhat trying to his Dark Passenger, who yearns to get out and play. Of course, Dexter would not be Dexter, if there were not a situation that required his specific skill set.
When Dexter, a blood splatter expert, becomes involved at the behest of his detective sister with the disappearance of two teenage girls, all hell breaks loose. What Dexter discovers is not just an ordinary group of Goths with a vampire fetish, drinking blood, but a secret cabal of cannibals, ready and eager to devour human flesh.
Once again, Dexter is captivating. With sardonic humor and self-deprecating wit, he is quite amusing, even when faced with life and death decisions. Alas, his detective sister has become less so. In fact, as a character, I now find her one dimensional and downright tiresome. She is a one note joke, adding a discordant note to the book, as she has become unlikable. This is a shame, as she is a tie to Dexter's mentor, Harry, who enshrined the code by which Dexter and his Dark Passenger live.
Still, the book is enjoyable, overall, and fans of Dexter will not be disappointed. Readers will turn the last page of this book and find themselves eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Dynamic Dexter,Dexter by Design: A Novel" or "Darkly Dreaming Dexter," I would rank this book third in the series. Interesting new character developments for Dexter and Deborah following the amazing events in "Dexter By Design," that clean up those loose threads that left us hanging at the end of the last book, while also propelling the characters forward and bringing new life - literally - to the D siblings.
Twisted and bizarre killers like we always expect from a "Dexter" book, but also some pretty twisted and bizarre victims, that will certainly raise your eyebrows, if not turn your stomach, but will certainly keep you reading.
And a question left over from "Darkly Dreaming Dexter" decides it was time we had an answer...
4.0 out of 5 stars Another View of Dexter's Mind!,
5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best of the Series,
Dexter is astonished that upon the birth of his daughter his homicidal instincts desert him for more... human... ones. Suddenly he wants to be Dex-Daddy, hang up his knives and steer Astor and Cody away from the dark path.
But life intrudes in the form of his sister and a possible kidnapping/murder case involving cannibals. And a figure from his past starts to become cozy with his family, leaving Dexter disoriented.
This is a lighthearted novel that examines the darker side of life. Like the others in the series, it's light on the gore and heavy on the lyrical writing. Unlike the previous books, Dexter develops actual feelings. It's fun watching him reevaluate life and try to understand emotions he's only faked before.
While the story gets predictable towards the end there were some good twists I didn't see coming, like an unexpected request by Deborah.
One of the best of the series.
5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic,
I did love all the other books too, but this one is just off the charts as far as I'm concerned.
It has a little less of the duct tape/plastic bag action than some of the previous novels, but it's more complex IMO. The baby changes a lot of things in Dexter's life. Also, the criminals in this installment are even more spectacular than usual.
