The Lunatic Cafe Laurell K Hamilton

Rating : 4.5/5Reason for reading : Summer Reading Challenge, recommendationNumber in series : #4 Anita Blake Vampire Hunter

This book focused mostly on Anita's personal life. The first 300 pages or so mostly follow her relationship with Richard, alpha werewolf and next in line to be pack leader, and later with Jean-Claude, Master vampire of the city. The tension is really building between the three of them and the next book should be interesting to see where they go from here.

The last 70 pages crammed in a lot of the usual murder-mystery type story. It was the secondary plot line for most of the novel, but the ending was very fast paced. The pack leader Marcus has enlisted Anita's help to track down missing lycanthropes who have been disappearing close to the full moon. There were three seperate stories that sprouted from this and I figured out two of them this time yay me. One thing I am still trying to get my head around is the different types of shape-shifters. It's so easy to accept werewolves as they have appeared in so many other stories and tales. When it comes to wereleapords, wererats and wereswans it is a different matter. Fair enough the swan was a witches curse, but the rest? Hmm.

Finding out a little more about Edward was interesting, he is an intriguing character and I hope he keeps appearing in future novels. This was definately my favourite in the series so far, I enjoyed the story being fleshed out more and the character development.
