∴ The Lunatic Cafe (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #4) by Laurell K. Hamilton


Synopsis:

In Laurell K. Hamilton’s New York Times bestselling novels, Vampire Hunter and zombie animator Anita Blake is an expert at sniffing out the bad from the good. But she’s about to learn that nothing is ever as it seems-especially in matters of the not-so-human heart…

Dating a werewolf with self-esteem issues is stressing Anita out. Especially when something-or someone-starts taking out the city’s shapeshifters.

“I loved him, but love isn’t enough. All the fairy tales, the romance novels, the soap operas; they’re all lies. Love does not conquer all.”

I really liked this installment in the Anita Blake series. It was fast paced and constantly had my attention. I actually ended up reading this book in one sitting. There was plenty of action and even a little intrigue. There was more politics in this book than previous and I liked that as well.
While I liked Anita a little more in this book than previous, she still annoys me. I have said before that I find her extremely one dimensional. Anita has one way of thinking and won’t even consider that she may be wrong. While I like a character with a strong sense of right and wrong, I find her extremely judgemental and no matter how much she may deny it, she is prejudiced when it comes to supernaturals. I also think that she is extremely hypocritical. She won’t be with Jean-Claude because he is one of the “monsters” but she will be with Richard who she admits is also one? That is extremely hypocritical and it makes me really dislike her character.
SIDE NOTE: Sometimes I wish Laurell K. Hamilton would give us more about the other supernatural races. They were briefly mentioned in this book, but we never got real explanations of them. I want to learn more about the other weres especially and I hope that Hamilton includes them more in the future installments.
Overall, I did enjoy this book and I do think that it is the best installment in the series so far. I will be continuing the series with Bloody Bones.
