Blue Moon (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Book 8) Mass Market Paperback – September 24, by Book 8 of 26 in the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter Series.
Blake practices Christianity and is currently of the Episcopal faith, having left Catholicism since the Catholic Church has excommunicated all animators.
Hamilton, Laurell - Anita Blake 08 - Blue Moon
In the short story "Dancing" she describes herself as being 5'3 inches tall, as well as in Laughing Corpse , Ch.
Blake is known to be carrying between four and five strains of the lycanthropy virus. As of Affliction, Anita carries wolf, leopard, lion, hyena, as well as several different colors of tiger. Anita Blake was born with the power of necromancy , a power that she inherited from her grandmother.
Her mother died in a car accident when Anita was 8, which greatly impacted her throughout her childhood and adult years. When Anita was 10, her father remarried after her mother's death to Judith, whom Anita often clashed with over her powers and differences. Anita could 'see' ghosts, and raised her dead pet dog and even road kill, to her, her father and step-mothers dismay.
Anita initially exerted little control over her powers, eventually leading her father to request that her maternal grandmother teach Anita how to "turn off" her abilities.
Her Maternal Grandmother taught her how to control her abilities, but seeing how powerful Anita was, encouraged Anita's dad to raise her as a Christian instead of vaudun.
During college she raised a professor who had killed himself-her roommate moved out the next day. Anita majored in preternatural biology and became engaged to a fellow student, who later broke off the engagement due to his parents disapproving of him dating a Mexican woman.
He was her first sexual experience. This would cause Anita to remain celibate for much of the initial books in the series until The Killing Dance After graduation Anita was recruited by Bert Vaughn to join Animators, Inc. She also met Edward, and learned about weapons. During the events in First Death she met the vampire hunter Edward and received several of her scars, which includes a cross-shaped brand on her arm.
In the first novel Guilty Pleasures Anita receives her first marks from the vampire Jean-Claude and begins to gain advanced healing powers and abilities.
By the end of the book she has become instrumental in removing the previous Master Vampire of the City Nikolaos from power by killing her and has received two of the four marks necessary to become Jean-Claude's Human Servant. These marks also enhance her necromancy powers, with Jean-Claude remarking in The Laughing Corpse that he could feel her power calling to him at the end of the book.
In the third novel Circus of the Damned Anita meets high school science teacher and closet werewolf Richard Zeeman and begins dating him. She is also attacked by rival vampire Alejandro, who too marks her as his Human Servant, which cancels out the control that Jean-Claude previously exerted through the marks he had given her.
In The Lunatic Cafe Anita becomes engaged to Richard, only to have Jean-Claude quickly blackmail her into dating him after learning of the engagement.
Anita also meets Raina, the lupa of the local wolf pack, as well as Jason, a young werewolf. Anita's powers grow in Bloody Bones , as does her relationship with Jean-Claude. In The Killing Dance Richard has become the Ulfric, or leader, of his pack after killing off the previous leader Marcus. Anita herself kills Raina, who later inhabits Anita's body, both antagonizing her as well as giving her the ability to heal others.
It is during this book that Anita forms a triumvirate with Richard and Jean-Claude as well as accepting further vampire marks from him. This makes it impossible for Anita to separate herself from Richard or Jean-Claude, which is further exacerbated when Anita breaks her engagement with Richard and becomes Jean-Claude's lover after watching Richard eat Marcus and transform into his wolf form.
Despite this, Anita's magical bonds with the two are further strengthened throughout the series and Anita is still considered to be the "lupa" or female leader of the pack despite her relationship issues with Richard.
Laurell K. Hamilton
Anita becomes the protector of the local were-leopard pack in Burnt Offerings , a role that places her alongside the were-leopard Nathaniel, who has expressed a sexual interest in Anita. Her relationship with Richard is somewhat reconciled in Blue Moon when she travels to Tennessee to clear him of rape charges. Her powers continue expanding, as Damian begins showing signs of being Anita's vampire servant.
During this book she also begins learning magic through the Wiccan Marianne in an attempt to help teach Anita how to close off her metaphysical ties to Richard and Jean-Claude in an attempt to keep from being overwhelmed by them. In this novel, Anita travels to Myerton, Tennessee to help clear her ex-boyfriend Richard of rape allegations. In the process, Anita and her various allies are drawn into a supernatural conflict with the Master Vampire of that city, as well as the criminal scheme that Richard's frame-up was meant to conceal.
As with the other later novels in the series, Blue Moon blends elements of supernatural , hardboiled detective , and erotic fiction. Explanation of the novel's title[ edit ] As with previous novels, "Blue Moon" refers to a location within the novel itself.
In this case, the "Blue Moon cabins" are a set of rental cabins owned by Verne, the local Ulfric. Within the novel, the term " blue moon " is also used to refer to an upcoming full moon, the second in that calendar month, which is a rare occurrence.
Plot summary[ edit ] Blue Moon takes place in the apparently fictional town of Myerton, Tennessee. This is what I thought of the book: She has a tendency toward cliches, ridiculous repetitiveness Note to Laurell K. Give your readers a little credit. Those who pick up a book mid-series deserve to be a little confused. You just have to trust that your writing alone will make it clear, not your endless reiterations. And for god's sake, don't stop in the middle of action and ruin the tension with your little tangents.
She also needs to pay a little more attention to detail, or keep some post-it notes, or something, because she contradicts herself on occasion, or bobbles back and forth ie the main character is 25, and she says on a few occasions that Jean-Claude is nearly years older than her, putting him somewhere between ; she also frequently states that Jean-Claude is over years old.
Maybe Anita, the narrator, has had a few too many concussions, cause something just aint right There are always so many plot lines going, I think maybe Hamilton just splits her focus too much and gets lost.
But she did get the book on track, and I did end up liking it and even though there were parts that irritated me -- especially my inner-editor -- I was never NOT engaged , and though I am sure these bad habits will continue through the rest of the ridiculously long series, I will read it, fixing the defects in my mind as I go.
Side note; for those of you who read the series and like your Anita lustful, this one certainly does not disappoint. View all 20 comments. Nov 08, Jilly rated it it was ok Shelves: Hey, I found out why Richard is such a whiny dick in this book! His mother - the domineering bitch!
Nothing like a horrible, bitchy mother who keeps her sons' testicles in her handbag, to raise a punk-ass, spoiled baby of a son! And, don't forget Richard's brother, Daniel, who we meet, and is just as afraid of their smother, I mean mother. Richard's mommy gets in a bar-fight in this book and Anita has to try and stop her because Richard's brother is too afraid to stop mommy-dearest.
Of course, hi Hey, I found out why Richard is such a whiny dick in this book! Of course, his mother starts hitting Anita and freaking out. She's such a classy lady. I do like how Anita tells her off: She moved closer, I moved away. Ah, the yelling of "how dare you! The only "how dare you" that is justified So, why only two stars?
Well, one of them is for Asher. The other is for Nathaniel and Damian. All other stars were deducted for this book being about Richard, the dick. Richard, the sucky baby, gets thrown in jail for rape. So, of course, his family calls Anita, his ex-girlfriend to drop everything and run to Tennessee to save his sorry ass.
And she does!!! His family is there.
What is Kobo Super Points?
His current girlfriend is there. Anita isn't a lawyer or cop. Why her? Because reasons, I guess. So, Anita drops everything and rushes down to help sissy-boy. Of course the local sheriff in Hicksville is fat, stupid, and crooked.
Sheesh, I guess all small-town cops are bumbling crooks who deserve to die. There couldn't possibly be any that are friendly, efficient, and law-abiding. We're on the case So, when the Keystone Cops tell Anita and Richard that all they have to do is leave town in order to get the rape charge dropped, all they have to do is lie and say they will.
Or, better yet, just leave and let the feds know that the cops are crooked. But, no, Richard refuses to leave on the basis that he is an idiot. Even when one of the cops has Anita naked and is about to rape her, Richard refuses to just say the words that he will leave to make it stop. He's willing for them to torture someone else just as much as they want for his principles.
Richard can shift into a big ol' pussy too Needless to say, I was not a big fan of this book.
The story premise was stupid, there was no Jean Claude, and way too much Dick. View all 3 comments. It appears while Richard was in Tennessee studying trolls and such for his master's thesis that he has been thrown in jail for rape. Anita immediately comes to the rescue, along with Asher, Damien, Jason, Jamil, Cherry, and a few other were's, against the explicit orders of the Master of the City, Colin.
Can Anita clear Richard's name, keep her troop alive, and "You are making this too complicated. Can Anita clear Richard's name, keep her troop alive, and learn her burgeoning new abilities? I'm really on the fence with the rating on this one. There were some key plot elements that I liked, but more than ever, there were parts that bugged the hell out of me. I've never been a fan of Anita.
I've always thought she's been b! But Anita here is somehow even more unlikable than she's been in the last 7 books. Nathaniel, Asher, and Damien. Okay, so before she was b! The books have already started to move away from the formula of the earlier entries--and not in a good way. I may not have been fond of the "Monster of the Week" plot device, but at least the earlier books bothered to HAVE a plot, a beginning, middle, and end.
The shame is, there IS a good plot in here. I liked Anita leaving to "rescue" Richard. Instead, the first half is mainly about Anita making people mad with her big, fat mouth. She walks into another vampire's territory, after he told her not to come, and expects him to just lie down and roll over.
I'm sorry, Anita, choices have consequences. I'm sure if some self-important "Vampire Hunter" because, honestly, when was the last time Anita actually hunted a Vampire?
The middle portion is mostly about Anita wanting to hump anything with a d!
When she is dating Jean-Claude. The latter portion tries to add a plot, but it's so late in the game, it has to be hastily wrapped up LKH-style: Once again, I am floored that Anita is considered so "smart". As if this weren't bad enough, the middle and latter halves bring up the first hints of the increased sexuality that I've heard plagues the latter books.
Several times, Anita has to make out, disrobe, or do something sexual for some plot convenience--distraction, because of some arcane, never-before heard of plot device, etc. And then we have so much rape.
08 - Blue Moon - Anita Blake
It seems like, in order to show the audience who the bad guys are, LKH has them rape someone--and of course, it's usually the females.
I don't think I would mind these so much if it didn't feel so tacked on. And then the clothes!! I'm pretty sure all the men are impotent probably the women too , as it seems no one can find a pair of pants that isn't "painted on". And the writing!! Good God, LKH has never been the most stellar writer, but at least I didn't have to read the phrase "A glob of something thicker than blood" a billion times per book in earlier books.
BUT there were parts I liked. The plot elements I described, along with a few key characters. Asher still seems pretty cool. I really enjoyed Jamil who gives the review its title.
I enjoyed seeing Anita and Richard get back together, and I nearly fainted to see a somewhat competent, powerful female, Marianne. This is not the worst of the series--but it is close. You can already see the shift in the series, and if you didn't like the change in "Burnt Offerings", you are probably not going to like it here. Which is a shame, because LKH does have some really good ideas that, if she had trimmed away the fat, could have made a really good novel.
View all 9 comments. Sex, violence, poor plot, irrational prudishness combined with irrational sexual behavior Dont know what else to say really.
Except wheres Larry? The most interesting supporting character has been lost somewhere. And wheres Animators Inc? Does she even have her job anymore it is mentioned in the end in one sentence and thats it She gets everything she wants and whines about it. Total immature bitch. O Sex, violence, poor plot, irrational prudishness combined with irrational sexual behavior OH and are there any normal and likeable females in LKH's imaginary world? View 2 comments.
Today we focus on Blue Moon. It opens with a phone call where Anita Blake, Vampire Executioner, Necromancer and Protector of all things furry, defenseless and preternaturally sexy, learns that her ex-love but not lov er Richard is in jail on rape charges. She shoos him away, takes her vampire and shifter entourage and heads out to save the day.
I love that about Anita. She still lusts after Richard and what with all of the drama with the beasties and the evil big bad, a few corrupt police officers and the munin raising its horny head, Anita has her hands full.
Blue Moon is narrated by Kimberly Alexis who does a great job voicing the tough as nails, increasingly coldish Anita. Narrator Alexis is all business and it fits really well. She also does a decent job voicing everyone with the exception of Asher and Jean Claude, both who are given faux fancy French accents which make them sound too feminine for comfort. My ears bled a little whenever they were speaking. Some of the other characters sound too similar but I could usually figure out who was speaking pretty quickly.
I really enjoyed this reread. The characters dealt with a lot of deep crap, Anita had to work through some of her issues and questioned herself and her values. I liked this Anita. She cares about the people she keeps acquiring and makes tough calls to keep them safe. This book has some incredibly dark edges. I always forget about that and I appreciate it. I have to hand it to Hamilton, she does not flinch while inflicting damage to the innocents in this book.
Now on to the next one! View all 8 comments. First read: May Re-read: July The plot: Anita is called away from her home in St. Louis to a small town in Tennessee where Richard has been arrested on a rape charge. Anita is convinced he is innocent, and with the full moon coming, if Richard isn't freed from jail before then, his parents and his employers will learn he's a werewolf and he could lose everything.
What I liked: I despise Richard as a love interest and First read: However he was actually a different, more reasonable, likeable character here than he was in the previous novels. The smaller cast of characters meant that we got more depth and backstory on some of the lesser characters like Cherry, Zane and Damien. Oct 13, Chris rated it did not like it Shelves: There is a plot. It is an interesting plot even.
The plot, however, takes a different car than the sex that gets pushed to the fore. Yes, I know the correct expresssion is "the plot took a back seat to the sex", but the plot is farther back than that.
The main problem, however, is that in this book I found Anita to be totally unlikable I wanted her to get hit by a Mac truck. I also think it is interesting that we are told she is going to be taught to use her newfound powers, but we never see it.
Jan 08, Diane Ehrlich rated it really liked it Shelves: The first several novels in the Anita Blake series are great. Funny, scary, a touch gory and a touch sexy. As you read each book, you can really see the character development as Anita becomes more sure of herself and more comfortable with the "monsters".
However, some the later books have deteriorated into little more than soft porn for women. Not that there's anything wrong with that. However, I feel it cheapens the series, which features a great role model in Anita as a women who has accepted The first several novels in the Anita Blake series are great.
However, I feel it cheapens the series, which features a great role model in Anita as a women who has accepted that her life works the way it is and makes her happy, even it is not what the rest of the world thinks is normal. She is strong, independent, and accepting of her sexuality. Nov 09, zcb rated it it was amazing Shelves: Blue Moon is my favourite Anita Blake chapter to date. The initial plot takes a backseat through most of the book, but seeing Anita deal with her place in the pack, delve deeper into her connection to Richard and all that that entails was entertaining.
I loved all of the secondary characters, and seeing Anita explore the camaraderie of those relationships. LKH has a great talent in developing characters that are complex and compelling enough that makes me want to know everything about them. I rea Blue Moon is my favourite Anita Blake chapter to date. I have to assume that, at least in part, they have to do with the fact that the book is so Richard heavy. IMHO focusing on Richard for once is one of the best parts of the book.
Why develop characters in such a detailed fashion then watch them betray everything they believe in for no apparent reason. However, in comparison to their moral characters those reasons were not good enough to make the actions ring true.
To the nitpicking: I do hope that the relationship with Richard continues, at least for a little while. View 1 comment. Jan 11, Ithlilian rated it it was ok Shelves: I hate to say it but, this is my least favorite book in this series. The first pages dragged so much. Richard is in jail on false charges so Anita comes to investigate and free him. Unfortunately, the master of the city there does not take kindly to super powerful vampire killer invading his lands.I also like the unique way LKH raises the erotic temperature and temptations for Anita and her companions and how the roles of Lupa of the wolves and Nimir-Ra of the leopards mandate physical closeness she is most uncomfortable with at the beginning which diminish slowly.
This book was all over the place. I'd pull the trigger and watch him die at my feet. That part of the story builds well but is over by the halfway point, sadly. All other stars were deducted for this book being about Richard, the dick. Richard is arrested on trumped up rape charges by crooked cops who want him to stop interfering in local matters, so Anita and the gang go down to bail him out. There is also Colin the vampire that they make a big deal out of.
I'm sorry, Anita, choices have consequences. Goodreads Librari
