autumnus: A purple monochrome portrait of Zoe from Dreamfall, with drawn stars in background and "the Dreamer" written on bottom. (Default)
I read the editorial thing for Danse Macabre, the latest book in the Anita Blake series. Overall it seems descent: one thing worries me through. They say "no final ending". if this means she is doing what she does in Merry Gentry I'll be very upset. In that other series the book just gets cut off where the story is nowhere near done. There was a yule ball that was announced at the second book as a week away. At the end of 4th book we didn't get to it yet. Ouch... The story doesn't move. The main caracter gets the more and more tangled in more reliationships and more guys a way that it just loses honesty.

I really really hope she doesn't go into same road with Anita Blake ones. The tangling issue happened in Incubus Dreams too. It just comes to the point that there is just too many guys connected to Anita. I feel she needs to lose some. It just doesn't work. I can understand a threesome, even a foursome. How you can be in love with 7? okay that is still possible but how can 7 guys fall in love with you and be faitful at you when you don't even let them have sex between themselves. I mean how can they be content with it? This is just not realistic at all. Some people says everything is going too good, that everything is going perfect. There has been lighter books like that in the series, followed by scarier ones, so I keep my opinion about it for now. Just as long as this smut episode doesn't last TOO long and she doesn't keep adding more and more metaphysical links. Okay enough of it, we have to settle up into this plateau a little.

I love the idea of Anita might be pregnant. It brings a fresh issue and a situation that might bring out fresh aspects of all existing caracters and the idea of Anita trying to be a mom is just too cute (and hilarious) for words. This is without even imagining what powers such a kid could have too. Hahaha.

Despite my reserve I am looking really forward to the book actually. I don't know how I will wait until the end of summer to read it. If they get a e-book out, I am buying it.
