Obsidian Butterfly, the ninth of Laurell K Hamilton's Antia Blake Vampire Hunter novels, is not quite the mixture as before, concentrating as it does on Anita's occasional partnership with the stone-cold killer Edward rather than on her love for werewolf Richard and vampire Jean-Claude. Edward brings her down to New Mexico when Ted, his legal bounty hunter secret identity, is called in on an investigation he cannot handle. Some creature hitherto unknown in this world, where mere monsters are commonplace is transforming victims into skinless, bloody automata and no one has any idea why.
Hamilton provides the usual thrills, moments of perverse eroticism and extreme supernatural ickiness; she also delves rather more deeply than usual into what makes her heroine tick and into Anita's fears that she may be becoming too like the sociopathic ruthless Edward for her own sanity and salvation. The stark desert terrain of New Mexico is neatly visualised--the novel's background is effectively used as a counterpoint to the heroine's fears and uncertainties. As usual, Hamilton does an effective job of delivering what her audience have come to love and, for once, she gives them a little bit more. --Roz KaveneyReview:
A superb series (OUTLAND)
Death and gore galore ... Hamilton writes with ease and vigour...Great fun (SHIVERS)
I was enthralled - a departure from the usual type of vampire tale which will have a wide appeal to any reader hunting for both chills and fun (ANDRE NORTON)
I've never read a writer with a more fertile imagination - and fewer inhibitions about using it (DIANA GABALDON)
