The Killing Dance by Laurell K. Hamilton

This is the sixth book in the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series.

Published: 1997

Genre: urban fantasy

Length: 387 pages

Setting: soon after the events of Bloody Bones, mostly in St. Louis

Summary: Anita Blake finds out from Edward that she has been targeted for assassination. Edward helps her avoid being killed. At the same time, the vampire Sabin approaches Anita and Jean-Claude in the hopes that Anita, as a necromancer, can heal him from a rotting disease. Richard is vying with Marcus for control of the wolf pack.

Major events:

  • Danse Macbre opens
  • Richard kills Marcus to take control of the werewolf pack
  • Anita sleeps with Jean-Claude for the first time, making Richard upset
  • Anita and Richard accept the third mark from Jean-Claude and form a triumvirate

Final thoughts: A good quick read. Not too much to think about, and just starting to get into the sex.

Title comes from: The lycanthrope’s euphemism for death (I think – I know it comes from the shapeshifters)

Reading challenges fulfilled: none since this is a review of a book read in a previous year, when apparently I didn’t bother to say much about books after I finished them
