When Anita Blake's boss at Animators, Inc., informs her that she's expected to raise 300-year-old zombies from a field of jumbled bones just to settle a land dispute, she's understandably annoyed. But as soon as she arrives in Branson, Missouri, to do the deed, the job gets more interesting. A psychotic sword-wielding vampire starts committing multiple murders in the area, and Anita must call on Jean-Claude, her powerful fanged suitor, for help. As always, Anita prevails over the undead, keeping Jean-Claude at arm's length, clearing the cemetery land of an ancient enchantment, and nailing the vampiric killer in one fell swoop. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Bloody Bones, like its predecessors, is nonstop action from beginning to end. The suspense is incredible, the fast-paced plot riveting. But it's more than just the action and suspense that kept me glued to this book. I loved that I finally got to know Jean-Claude in a deeper level. We learn more about Jean-Claude's background and history in a rather sexy bubble bath scene. JC and Anita fans will love to know that there is some closeness between them in this offering -- a fleeting closeness, but an important one nevertheless. And the best part is that Anita's werewolf boyfriend Richard is not in the way. I loved it! Laurell K.Read more ›
Another triumph for Laurell K. Hamilton
Of course, Laurell K. Hamilton does not stint on the blood and guts. I'm not real big on either one..., but I put up with all of the grotesque scenes because they are very crucial to the story. I think Laurell K. Hamilton has great ideas, and is very creative. Yes, I would prefer to have less gore, but I won't complain.
Unlike the book that came before this, 'The Lunatic Cafe', this is a real Anita/Jean-Claude book. They seem to be getting a little closer all of the time. There are a few scenes in this book between the two of them that are utterly priceless. This includes one scene in a hotel room, and one life-saving scene. I have to say I like Jean-Claude a lot more than I do Richard, and I hope that Anita's relationship with him blossoms some more, and I hope we keep getting that wonderful tension between them. I haven't been into a series this much since Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books, but I almost think I'm liking these even more - Hamilton mixes romance, drama, comedy, suspense and horror beautifully, and makes her readers come back for more.
This is a very quick moving and action packed addition to the series. Jean Claude is still proving himself as a Master of the City, and seems to really need Anita's help. Larry is really coming along as animator and vampire slayer, a very good addition to the cast of characters. The relationship between Anita and Jean Claude is also heating up nicely. All in all, a very good read.

I like Larry as a character and wish there was more of him in later books than flash-cameos. It was a rather good read, with a few too many subplots at times. Read morePublished on April 15 2004 by Essay
