I loved this book. I think it might be my new favorite in the Anita Blake series. LKH finally brings Anita back to St. Louis and all of her men. There are also several new characters. The only thing that could have made this book better in my eyes would be to have Edward in it. He is one of my favorite characters, so I did miss the fact that he was absent in this book (hopefully in the next book **smile**).
It is hard to say much without giving any spoilers, so I will just say a few things that LKH has already said, but I completely agree with. I want the name of Richard's therapist. I am not a fan of Richard, I am sick of his whining, but he kept everything together through some stuff that never would have thought some of the other men could do, even less so from Richard.
