Book: Burnt Offerings [Anita Blake book# 7]
Author: Laurell K. Hamilton
Review: Anita is very busy. She's searching for a missing werewolf, trying to track down a psychic firestarter and helping Jean-Claude with the visiting vampire delegation. She also needs to define her feelings for ex-boyfriend Richard and takes a leadership role with the were-panthers.
I was excited to read this book because as readers of this blog know, I am not a Richard fan. I was hoping we were done with him after the last book but it's apparent that Hamilton is going to keep Richard, and Jean-Claude, in Anita's life for the duration of the series. Luckily, Anita's romantic ventures are not the main point of the books (although still big plot points!) the mystery takes precedence. Unfortunately, while action packed, this book was extremely boring. Readers can usually count on Anita for witty comments but not this time around. All of the characters seemed disconnected and I could not get into the story lines.
