Skin Trade (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #17) Skin Trade by Lau­rell K. Hamil­ton

My review


rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars
I kept say­ing I was giv­ing up on Hamilton’s books, then giv­ing her just one more chance as each nov­el came out, hop­ing that at some point she’d give up the porn and write real nov­els again. With this vol­ume, the effort is final­ly vin­di­cat­ed.

Don’t get me wrong – there’s def­i­nite­ly sex in Skin Trade. Sex with yet more new men, even! But it doesn’t start hap­pen­ing ’til well into the book, and when it does occur there’s a lot more jus­ti­fi­ca­tion for it than at some times in the past. It’s still explic­it, and there are still like­ly to be more than two peo­ple in any giv­en bed at a time, but if any of that squicked you, you wouldn’t be read­ing any of her work.

The book near­ly earned four stars, but there were a few plot holes that both­ered me too much to for­get them.
