I am confused and frustrated as to why plot information about Sookie Stackhouse's cousin Hadley was included in this anthology, but the anthology is not mentioned in any printing of the SS series. I wish I had been told by the author or publisher that there was information missing from book 6 before I began reading it, or I would have picked up Bite.
What I enjoyed most about the book “Bite” by Laurell K. Hamilton is it connects to real life and fantasy at the same time. It connects to real life because the daughter of Ms. Mackenzie has been introduced to drugs and alcohol and is making her life worse because of the drugs and alcohol, but it connects to fantasy because vampires are now real and they have the same rights as humans but if they bite a human and the human dies than they get killed immediately, burned and the ashes get put into the river. That is what I enjoyed most about the book.
A book that is similar to the book “Bite” by Laurell K. Hamilton is the Twilight Saga. They are alike because they both are about vampires, love, friendship and danger. They also are suspense books. The Twilight Saga is about a girl named Bella and a nice vampire named Edward meeting and falling in love. Also that Bella is in trouble with a mean vampire and Edward saving her. Next, Bella falls in love with a werewolf (vampires enemy) named Jacob while Edward is away. “Bite” is about a Vampire hunter trying to help convince people not become a vampire and the girl is in love with a vampire and a human.
I found this book not a quick read because you have to take the time to actually think and understand the book. I also think it is not a quick read book because it is very detailed and a suspenseful book. Another reason it isn’t a quick read book is because you also have to read slowly so you have time to take things in. In some parts you may have to read over and over again. Finally, it is not a quick read book because it is a long book. That is why I think it is not a quick read book.
When I read this book I had no idea that it had anything to do with Sookie Stackhouse's cousin and I have read this book multiple times. But this book was very intresting i found my self having to read certain areas of this book over just to catch details that i did not catch before. But I agree that it is in some cases like the twilight series But I found it a quick read a couple of times reading and rereading catching the idea of the book. But It left me thinking about the next part to the stories and wanting to read the book continuously. But i really did and still do enjoy this book.
I read this book because it had Angela Knight and a story from her Magverse Series and Maryjanice Davidson and her Betsy Series. I collect both these authors books. I also enjoyed the other two authors stories.
My main interest in this anthology is the Anita Blake story line, I have the other author's stories on my list, but what I really want to know is where does this SS fit into the Anita Blake series.
I have made the mistake of not reading anthologies before in a series and ended up getting confused and felling like something was missing from the stories because authors put crucial information in the SS and don't list it's importance on there website with reading order.
If anyone has read this SS and the rest of the Anita Blake series and could give me some incite that wold be great!
The short Anita Blakestory in this anthology occurs between the book Blue Moon and Obsidian Butterfly.
(That is stated in the book itself)
I hope it helps!
This does help, I have actually already read both these books in the series, but I can put this next in my list to read so I can catch the story in between.
Thanks for your help!
