Product Description

Review

“Those who like a plot that moves at the pace of a runaway locomotive will be delighted with this 20th installment of the Anita Blake series.”



“As punchy as her first foray…Hamilton goes back to basics and delivers a sleek, hard-boiled page-turner.”

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on June 7 2011
Format: Hardcover
Remember how in "Bullet," Laurell K. Hamilton set up a thrilling, exciting plotline... and then just stuffed it into a single "here's what we did" sentence in the last chapter?

Well, her twentieth Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter novel "Hit List" attempts to be what "Bullet" wasn't -- an edgy, gritty thriller about serial-killings by vampire spies. It's not. Hamilton has toned down the plotless sex, but it's replaced with an endless stream of really boring conversations, weapons porn, weretiger politics, and Anita waving her imaginary penis at her superiors.

Edward and Anita are called to Twilightland (aka the Pacific Northwest) to investigate a bunch of weretigers who are being killed, probably by the Harlequin. And after a bizarre fight breaks out at the local weretiger.... place, Anita realizes that the Mother Of All Darkness is scheming to steal Anita's body and make it her own. You know, the same dastardly plot as the last several books.

However, Anita's attempts to root out the Harlequin are foiled by a minor arm injury. So she drops the real federal marshals, and joins forces with Bernardo, Olaf, and some minor were-bodyguards. Can they finally stop talking long enough to catch the Harlequin? Will Anita pull a new magic power out of her butt to wrap up the worst-written subplot in the whole series?

"Hit List" is boring. Painfully boring. Hamilton has toned down the sex/politics considerably, but about 90% of this book is made up of dull, repetitive conversation. If you chopped out the subplots that go nowhere (Marshal Raborn) and the dialogue that adds nothing, the entire simplistic plot would be about thirty pages long.

Hit List by Laurell K Hamilton

Is this series nearly over after 20 books or will Ms Hamilton keep trying to push for more? It seems to me that Ms Hamilton may be getting somewhat tired of Anita and her Harem and it shows in the writing of this novel. In addition, if Laurell is tired at this point can you imagine just how her longtime fans feel? Luckily, this book is not as horrid as some of her previous attempts at writing action/erotica. It goes a long way in making up for the previous books that have so insulted her fans intelligence and hopefully Ms Hamilton may have finally given up on the assumption that we (her long-time fans) will stick with the series no matter how faulty the writing.
One of the biggest problems in this book is that there is a lot of repetition both in dialogue and in character types. Some dialogue and descriptions seem to be reproduced nearly word for word in the space of two chapters. It is as if Ms Hamilton is too tired to think of anything new to throw at Anita and Crew. Perhaps her beta readers and editor fell down on their jobs. Marshal Raborn seems to be a caricature or a regurgitation of Dolph. Dolph when he was at his worst. Remember the books in which he is angry and takes it out on Anita? I'm tired of these kinds of repetitive 'macho' men and Anita having to defend herself; as if Ms Hamilton really needs to remind us that Anita is MORE than just a sex object now. Oh wait'maybe she does?
One good thing about this book is that the excessive descriptions of long hair are missing since none of her 'sweeties' is in it, but we do get descriptions of 'anime' hair. Also missing are the ramblings of Anita discussing her wardrobe and the ever-popular lengthy dialogues and soliloquies just before she deigns to have sex with anyone.

This series needs to be read in order otherwise you will not get the full effect of the characters and plot. I think that if I just picked this book up and read it I would not enjoy it...but because I've read all of the books in this series I did enjoy it. You could probably start at Blue Moon and get the feeling of this series though. This is not my favorite book in the series but having to wait a year I'm just happy to being entertwined in the complex storline again. Some characters I have followed since the beginning and it is fun to see how they have evolved. Just a warning though this series can be violent and has some intense sex scenes. But if you like vampires and wereanimals this series has a good twist on them. I give this book a five because I like this series and perhaps you will too.

By A. Soares TOP 500 REVIEWER on Feb. 13 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
After waiting for books for a plot to re-emerge I can conclude my hopes are in vain. Anita Blake has gone from nearly a virgin to a succubus that will jump anything that moves (even if they are against the notion). I can say that after all this I will never waste my money (or time for that matter) on another Laurell K. Hamilton 'novel' again.

This book is boring, there is no plot and the never-ending sex scene is badly written. For S&M slanted erotica turn your interests to Anne Roquelaire's Sleeping Beauty trilogy instead.

Once a fan waiting in anticipation for each installment... now bitterly disappointed wishing the series could have ended on a high note (long long ago in a galaxy far far away)....
