Waiting On Wednesday ~ Crimson Death by Laurell K Hamilton @LKHamilton

Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted by Breaking The Spine. This is my anticipated book of the week!

Anita has never seen Damian, her vampire servant, in such a state. The rising sun doesn’t usher in the peaceful death that he desperately needs. Instead, he’s being bombarded with violent nightmares and blood sweats.

And now, with Damian at his most vulnerable, Anita needs him the most. The vampire who created him, who subjected him to centuries of torture, might be losing control, allowing rogue vampires to run wild and break one of their kind’s few strict taboos.

Some say love is a great motivator, but hatred gets the job done, too. And when Anita joins forces with her friend Edward to stop the carnage, Damian will be at their side, even if it means traveling back to the land where all his nightmares spring from…a place that couldn’t be less welcoming to a vampire, an assassin, and a necromancer.

The Anita Blake series has come a long way. It’s had many ups and downs. A lot of readers have come to a point where, for one reason or another, they were done with the series.

There is just something with this series for me that keeps me coming back. I felt the downslide we had, but I continued on. Now I feel like we are pulling things together and the series is returning to my original love.

Crimson Death is going to take us out of the USA and into unknown territory for Anita. We are also going to have Edward along for the ride, which will be great. It will be a crap shoot as to who will be tagging along for Anita’s needs, but I’m hoping they won’t be a major issue in the story. There are definitely going to be some new aspects and I can’t wait to see how Anita deals with them. Crimson Death releases October 11, 2016. Get ready for an exciting ride as we dash across the pond to help our Damian!

  • Can’t wait to see reviews for this one. I haven’t read these in forever, but I still check reviews lol

    • The reviews are always so scattered on each book, its hard to know if you should continue on. I have found it is getting harder and harder to keep track of people, so I don’t think this is one series I could skip around in.

  • I’m really interested in seeing reviews for this one. I DNF the previous book. I was so frustrated by how much the beginning of the story was about the political reasons of who she should marry. Maybe if this one is getting good reviews, maybe I will give the series another try. This used to be a favorite of mine. I was taking release day off from work, just to read it. It made me very sad the day I DNF a LKH book (too many acronyms LOL).

    • Gotta love acronyms, they make life so much faster! LOL I’m so scared going into one of these because I just don’t know what parts are going to get focused on. I’m hoping that since the blurb on this one doesn’t mention many of the other crew that it is going to be a good action story with Edward. Now that I’ve seen the size of the book, I am kind of worried about what all is getting included. I really, really hope it goes well.
