∴ The Laughing Corpse (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #2) by Laurell K. Hamilton


Synopsis:

Harold Gaynor offers Anita Blake a million dollars to raise a 300-year-old zombie. Knowing it means a human sacrifice will be necessary, Anita turns him down. But when dead bodies start turning up, she realizes that someone else has raised Harold’s zombie–and that the zombie is a killer. Anita pits her power against the zombie and the voodoo priestess who controls it.

In The Laughing Corpse Anita will learn that there are some secrets better left buried-and some people better off dead…

MINOR SPOILERS THROUGHOUT:
I liked this installment in the series. While I did not enjoy it as much as the first book, I still had a fun time while reading it.
I think that the reason I didn’t like it was because of who the “bad guys” were and because of the central plot. I am not a big fan of the zombie/voodoo plot line and this book had a lot of that in it. I will also say that there were a few parts in this book where I was completely grossed out. I have read books where there were demented/disgusting things but the crime scenes in this book were described in a way that made me nauseous.
Even with all of those things, I will be continuing the series with Circus of the Damned . I still like this series, I just think that there will be certain books in it that have plots that will appeal to me more than others. I don’t believe that the writing was bad in this book, it just wasn’t my cup of tea.
