Synopsis: 'Blue Moon takes place in the apparently fictional town of Myerton, Tennessee. Richard, still recovering from Anita's rejection in The Killing Dance, has been in Myerton for some time, studying a local group of trolls as part of the requirements for his master's degree, and auditioning the women of the local werewolf tribe as possible lupas.
The plot begins when Anita receives a call from Richard's brother Daniel. Daniel explains that Richard has been arrested for an alleged rape, and is refusing to hire a lawyer. Anita leaves for Myerton, over the objection of the local Master of the City, with Asher, Damian, and most of the wereleopards as backup.
Once there, Anita must simultaneously attempt to uncover why local police have framed Richard and deal with Colin, the local Master of the City, who views her arrival as an act of war.
Ultimately, Anita destroys most of Colin's vampires by activating the lupanar of the local werewolf clan, rendering it holy ground, and kills Colin herself by shooting Colin's human servant, Nikki. In the course of her various rituals, Anita ends up having sex with Richard, and they agree that Anita will begin dating both Richard and Jean-Claude. Anita also learns that Richard had discussed her with Jean-Claude and had obliquely asked Jean-Claude whether he would accept Anita taking Richard as a lover.
Anita meets Marianne, a Wiccan practitioner who works with Verne's pack. Marianne advises Anita on building the wereleopards into a coherent group. Anita also has a long talk with Damien, and discovers that Jean-Claude gains power from lust and sex. Not only can he feed on the patrons of his strip club Guilty Pleasures, but on sex with Anita, or Anita having sex with Richard.
She and Richard discover that the rape charges were an effort by art collector Frank Niley to drive Richard's study project from the area, allowing them to acquire some contested land and complete Niley's search for the Spear of Destiny. In desperation, Niley kidnaps and brutalizes Richard's mother and brother, causing Anita to cross another moral line, torturing Niley's messenger and killing everyone responsible.'
Review: Richard is still being an idiot and Anita is still too patient with him. ( )

Anita is called out of town suddenly when she learns that Richard was been arrested on rape charges. Things are not right between them, and he's been in Tennessee studying for his Masters Degree. Despite their baggage, Anita is ready to drop everything and go rescue him. There's just one problem, the local Master Vampire forbids any of Jean Claude's people from coming to visit. He believes he will be deposed and replaced. In the end, Anita decides to bowl her way in regardless and just take the consequences. Jean Claude is not happy, but chooses her entourage carefully and wishes her luck.

Anita is able to get Richard out of jail, but it becomes clear very quickly that he was framed by the local police who are extremely corrupt and want them all to leave town immediately. However, Richard refuses because if he leaves, all the local trolls he's been studying will be slaughtered. They need to figure out who wants the land the trolls are living on and why and they have to do it before local police or the local vampires kill them all.

Oh, and of course there's a bunch of drama with the local werewolf pack as Richard has been "auditioning" new Lupas. Naturally there's tension and drama between him and Anita as well, which is only exacerbated by the ghost of the last Lupa who likes possessing Anita. This will all end in lots of sex and a demon being summoned to search for the spear that pierced Christ's side. I'm not kidding.

Woof, this one is a struggle because it's a Richard heavy book which makes it annoying. We also get to meet Richard's entire family which is tedious and also annoying. It's also pretty boring watching Anita throw down with every single woman on the planet. Richard has been fucking a lot of ladies, and for some reason, that makes them hate Anita instead of him. Truly, Richard is a massive asshole in this one, and it becomes increasingly clear that Ms. Hamilton has a lot of problems with women. This book is brimming over with internalized misogyny.

But alas, Asher is in this book. Which makes me like it. At least a little bit. ( )

I really loved Laurell K. Hamilton's early Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series books but I did feel like she lost the thread a bit in the middle of the series. I am glad to say that it seems like she is focusing more on the story line and less on the sex of late which makes the books better in my opinion. I think Anita is a great character and Laurell K. Hamilton can write a great plot but her overly complicated sex scenes can somewhat take away from the book. ( )

I liked the plot. Things are getting more intense for our heroine, Anita. But ...I didn't like her much in this book. She really crossed quite a few lines. Perhaps the author is doing it on purpose since a recurring theme seems to be who exactly are the monsters? Who exactly is more monstrous? Some great scenes in this one. Anita is finally going to learn to use her power. Richard the werewolf is back and Anita Jean-Claude and he are working things out. Maybe. ( )

this one was pretty good and I must say I'm sort of startng to like Richard now that he's starting to get the stick out of his butt. But I am still partial to Jean Claudr and was very upset he wasn't in this book much. I also am Liking Asher a lot. ( )
