Hmm… okay, so, we start with police procedural, and our hero shows up on the scene. She’s got a crap-ton of weapons and abilities, and she uses them to be a monster and save the day, sort of, except that nothing really happens and, twenty chapters later, we’re going back to the station for her to have the new guy — let’s make him a gigantic freaking red herring, just for the sake of argument — come out to someone he’s never met. Add in some drama with the other female cops before the hero goes home to her polyamorous lifestyle and has sex with two gorgeous, exceedingly well-endowed men before being even more dramatic, going to a hostage situation, and then dealing with vampire issues. Then she has still more sex with still more well-endowed men — all of whose eyes and hair we get intimate knowledge of — and obsesses over the fact that, holy crap, I’m in a semi-successful polyamorous relationship, what must be wrong with me??? before sitting down for a discussion and having a little action scene at the very end that she’s not even in the same room for most of, and…
…and then the book just stops.
Yeah. Welcome to Laurell K. Hamilton’s latest Anita Blake novel, Kiss the Dead.
- From the Infinity Mirrors exhibition by @yayoikusama_. I didn't show any actual mirrors because that's the part you have to see in person. I particularly liked room 3. #infinitymirrors #infinitekusamaLemon baked cod.I pet this #dog this week. His name is Dominic. I didn't get good photos of his brother Malcolm but I petted him too. 12/10 would pet again.That is a terrifyingly large @reeses cup...This mouse is going nowhere fast. #mouse @petcoI made a new friend while I was brushing my teeth this morning. #ladybug
