    1 thought on “Bloody Bones

    1. Our Anita Blake marathon and buddy read with Jessica continues with the fifth installment in the series.Bloody Bones is the best installment so far for me, and it is mainly that because Ms. Blake (Anita is very strict of her being called as Ms. instead of Miss, which is pointed numerous times within the story, and perhaps this is the touch of feminism I have heard so much about around the hoods) is out of town, and every page is not fillet with the awkwardly awkward love triangle that is getting [...]

    2. "Why do I put up with you? You insult me at every turn."Well, LKH broke the formula with this book. Anita actually TAKES a client and leaves St. Louis to head to Branson, Missouri, where she is being paid to raise an entire graveyard to see who owns the property (because, of course, Anita is the only one in this entire world who can do anything). While she is there, she learns that something is killing young boys AND a vampire is on the loose.This book, more than any of the earlier books, set my [...]

    3. So, the name of this book is Bloody Bones, right? Well, it is named after a restaurant in the book called Bloody Bones. I have to wonder how many of us would be willing to eat at a place with that name. Seriously, they need to fire the person who came up with that one, cuz yuckd mooingOh, and I found another fun fact about this book. Anita actually says a word more often than "Nike." It's "Browning", and apparently it's some kind of gun that she really really likes. The word "Browning" is in the [...]

    4. Although I never really learned to like Anita Blake, she was always tolerable ~ until Bloody Bones. Didn't Anita complain about all of the Were's alpha fight/dominance nonsense in Lunatic Cafe? Really, she is no better than the Were's here. If you take out all of the "I'm a bigger badass than you are" scenes & descriptions of corny outfits, you are left with nothing more than a short story. Granted. I do like Hamilton's story telling. But at this point I feel as if I am wading through the sa [...]

    5. The creativity that seeps into Laurell Hamilton’s book is astonishing. With that said, Bloody Bones is one of her books in the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series that really doesn’t do it for me.There are parts of this book that make you read super fast in anticipation of how a scene will turn out! Unfortunately, those scenes are few and far between in this book.Bloody Bones is a wonderful book filled with profound imagination and lingering betrayal. The twists in this book are interesting, [...]

    6. Bloody Bones is one of the more brutal outings in this series. A huge portion of the book follows Anita Blake as she’s working and this time she’s called in on a case that is particularly gruesome. Three teen boys are brutally slain, a young teen girl is left for dead and a young boy has been kidnapped, possibly by a deviant sexual predator of a vampire who enjoys toying with children. It’s dark and painful to read the grief instilled within some of these pages.Anita must also raise an ent [...]

    7. 4.5 Stars. This is my favorite book in the Anita Blake series so far. This is the first AB book that I listened to the audio of rather than reading. In Bloody Bones, Anita begins to bend from her very rigid moral code, which is a good thing. We learn about Jean Claude's background before he was a vamp and his beginning as a vamp. Learning about JC's background makes him seem more like a person, and it was sad but I also saw him as a victim. I still haven't seen a reason in any of the books (exce [...]

    8. I keep giving the series only 2 stars, yet keep reading. Why? Because I like the plot. However, Hamilton's writing style just makes me skim through large chunks of the story until I get to the interesting bits, so it's a love-hate relationship.I like the love triangle between Richard, Anita, and Jean Claude. The introduction of the fey was interesting as well.Also, finally Anita is behaving like a religious person (or at least more so than before), although as yet she still hasn't been to church [...]

    9. I have enjoyed this entire series so far and this one was no exception. I like that the characters are in constant motion. They seem to be moving forward, even if at times it feels like they are moving slowly. But it seems that by the end of the book, they have all learned something new and have adapted. Usually in series, that is hard to keep up, but this author has figured that part out. These have been a fun escape for me. I have a couple more that I hope to get to soon.

    10. This review publishes on A Weebish Book Blog on 11/08/2017.When Anita Blake is asked to raise 300-year-old zombies to settle a land dispute in Branson, Missouri, the job becomes a lot more interesting than she originally expected. A psychotic vampire begins committing murders in the area and Blake must call on her fanged boyfriend for help.What I enjoyed:- Anita Blake finally stops thinking of Jean-Claude as a monster anymore, and finally sees him as not just a powerfully seductive vampire, but [...]

    11. Another one done and I loved how it felt as if I was reading this for the first time.And my love Jason is now firmly in the series. I love that mutt.

    12. Ms. Anita Blake and I have had a very rocky history in the short time she and I have made acquaintances. For the first few books, I was absolutely enthralled with her take-no-prisoners attitude, her bravado, and her insistence upon keeping the monsters in check. However, with The Lunatic Cafe, she became absolutely frustrating in her passionate distaste for Jean Claude. That is not to say that I was not already getting annoyed with her before then with the way she was treating him when he was cl [...]

    13. "Bloody Bones" was the first of the out of town books. The key with the out of town books is who comes along for the ride. In this case, Jean-Claude, Jason, and Larry came along. Enough of the core people to keep it from feeling like one of the books that could be removed from the series without damaging the flow. (I'd argue that "Obsidian Butterfly" could be removed in that way. Maybe "Micah", as well.) We also got a little bit of Richard before Anita left town, so we got both of our leading me [...]

    14. For all the Anita Blake books - I started this series with my then friend, Meredith - she actually got me hooked that fateful summer of 2000 when I was living on her wooden floor in Brooklyn. We were both unemployed and bored and got hooked into this series. I loved Anita Blake because it was before I discovered the new genre - what I like to call "badass chicks who kick ass!" written in first person - and so she was all empowering and of course there were hot vampires and werewolves in it. Unfo [...]

    15. Bloody Bones continues Anita Blake’s non-stop exploits in a book containing faerie characters and multiple story lines which added to the brilliant book. The gore factor is high in this book.(view spoiler)[Anita is requested to go to Branson to raise bodies for at wealthy investor, Mr. Sterling, who has interest in a piece of prime real estate to build a resort. To get there Anita shared a phobia of mine in traveling by helicopter. Glass bottom airborne motorcycles requires nerves beyond my ca [...]

    16. I'll admit that this book bored the heck out of me at the beginning. I found myself skipping over half the chapters. I didn't really care about her relationship with Larry. There were a few things I liked. I liked the faerie guy. I like seeing Jason again, but he was a little too bratty for me this time around, I expected a different type of behavior from him. I loved Jean-Claude. I was touched when he told Anita in a vulnerable voice "it hurts" when the sun came up. I loved his concern for Anit [...]

    17. My favorite in the series so far! Hamilton's take on fairie lore made for some intriguing twists. Serephina was an intriguing villain, I really enjoyed the imagery of her and her powers really made things interesting. The character development was exciting for me, especially Anita's internal struggle with her mother's death, as wel as learning more about Jean Claude's past. The only thing that tripped me up a bit was that Jason seemed different than in the previous book; this may be because he w [...]

    18. Except for the excellent Rivers of London series, the last few urban fantasy books I have read have been pretty lackluster. I had forgotten how kick-ass the Anita Blake books are. Laurell K. Hamilton really has a skill highlighting the bio-polar aspects of the vampires. They may try and fit into modern human life and be understanding, helpful and sympathetic, but she never lets you forget that they are really horrible monsters underneath, even the good ones.This is a fast moving story with plent [...]

    19. Anita Blake has been called out to an animating job in Branson, far away from her usual connections. But she’s the only one in the country who may be able to do it – raise an entire graveyard full of 200 year old bodies, preferably in one night.As if that weren’t a big enough problem, the motivations of the parties involved is far from clear – and the presence of fae magic in the graveyard, and faeries willing to guard it, raises many more questions.And there are vampires running amok [...]

    20. review by Ciara*Warning: possible spoilers ahead.*Bloody Bones follows quickly on from the action of The Lunatic Café. Fans of the French vampire Jean Claude, as wells as fans of the murder and crime and investigation that characterized the first few installments in the series, will love this book.Anita travels to Branson, Missouri to raise an entire cemetery in order to settle a dispute about the ownership of the land. A property developer wants to build a high-class resort, while a local man, [...]

    21. Again more like a 3.5. Good but a bit gory at times. I do feel that Hamilton is beginning to shift her 'world rules' a little here to facilitate more books. Anita feels weaker than in her last book. I liked the 'twist' in the final 'escape' but Anita's final 'position' seems a little dubious. I would have felt that her experience with Seraphina might have left her a little more hostile-especially as she understands her own power more. Larry is good - and we see a lot of him - as are the police. [...]

    22. OK, OK, OK wait So I am going to say this and move on. I am totally digging this series. Jean-Claud Just mmmmmm I usually love the werewolf.But, in this case here I want that Vampire all over lil ol me I am okey with this. Anita goes out to raise a Mass grave and she ends up unleashing a big bad. She needs the help of Jean-Claud and his all too much sexiness. I can honestly say that I love this series I think that if people read it for the entertainment that it is would like it at the very least [...]

    23. Almost a four but not quiteThis is my favourite Anita Blake book so far, I felt it was funnier and much more developed. I liked the fact that she: worked with other characters much for in this book rather than just trying to kill everyone, we learned more about Jean-Claude and I think Larry is really sweet.One thing I am sad about is that Dolph and the other cops aren't really in this book. Also I thought that the whole issue with Xavier never really amounted to anything.

    24. I liked this one overall because yay some finally steamy or somewhat steamy scene with Jean Claude and no Richard I like richard and all but he's no Jean Claude, and he's sometimes annoying. but speaking of annoying, I got really annoyed with Anita in this book, I mean real annoyed with the way she acted with Larry, but come on, that was just a little high on the annoyance scale there.

    25. In Großbritannien und den USA weckt der Titel des fünften „Anita Blake“-Bandes, „Bloody Bones“, vermutlich ganz bestimmte Assoziationen. Ich lehne mich mal aus dem Fenster und behaupte, dass deutsche Leser_innen hingegen keine Ahnung haben, welche Anspielung sich darin versteckt. Im englischsprachigen Raum ist Bloody Bones als Kinderschreck bekannt, der nahe Gewässern lebt und unartige Kinder ertränkt. Die Legende variiert natürlich. Alternativ lebt das Monster in einem Schrank unte [...]

    26. Well, I think it's safe to say there'll never be an Anita Blake book where she doesn't get scarred 6 ways to Sunday.The reason why I didn't really like this book is because this is the game changer book, the one where Anita starts viewing Jean Claude more as a beau and not that pretty, pretty vampired yet from book 1 she was hating on Jean Claude. I like my characters to have "msimamo dhabiti" i.e. a firm foundation, not one minute ooooh he's a vampire, they are monsters, then to now oooooh he's [...]
