Rafael by Laurell K. Hamilton
The Story of the Rat King
When I saw that this was on NetGalley I got excited. Even though I got declined for an arc of the story I just used it as a friendly reminder that the next book would be out. Short, quick read. Felt rushed in parts and dragged on in others. Wish the author would find a balance in the way the story progresses. She tends to drag out descriptions and history that we don’t really need or at least I didn’t considering that this is book 28 and I have read them all to date. Some parts were really well written and some parts could have used some tender love and care. I felt as though Anita has become more compliant where it comes to her relationships. I didn’t think Anita would acquiesce to her relationships as easily I am so used to her being a spitfire. I know that Anita has her regulars and that poly is a big theme in this series but some of it comes across forced. Don’t hate me I will pick up book 29 with a big smile if it is anything like book 27, I loved the story and crime-fighting of 27. I just wish there was a little bit more to the story my favorite parts were from chapter 24 until the end. I only hope that Neva is in the next book the witch is my favorite new addition to the series. With all this being said this is going to be my first Anita Blake book that is getting a 3-star review.
