Review: Sucker Punch by Laurell K. Hamilton

Sucker Punch (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #27)Suck­er Punch by Lau­rell K. Hamil­ton
My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars

Bor­ing! If I had­n’t been hav­ing trou­ble find­ing enough to read, I would­n’t have fin­ished it. I thought there was too much talk­ing in Ser­pen­tine, but this vol­ume takes the cake. While Ani­ta is osten­si­bly in a small Michi­gan town because a the­ri­anthrope has been accused of a mur­der, the book main­ly serves as a vehi­cle for inter­ac­tions between her and Olaf. The end­ing is anti-cli­mac­tic and the vast amounts of dia­logue don’t move the plot along in the least.

Hap­pi­ly, there isn’t even one sex scene in this one. I fig­ure Hamil­ton must be respond­ing to the hordes of peo­ple who stopped read­ing because there was so much explic­it sex in the ear­li­er books.
