In the second book of the Anita Blake series, The Laughing Corpse rips you from reality and tosses you unexpectedly into a world of voodoo, betrayal and forced submission.

A definite recommendation for a sequel just be sure to start at the beginning in order to keep up to date. I am glad I did, because this book was a lot more enjoyable than the previous book was. She lzurell one of those day-planners to keep track. I found I was liking this a little more than the first one. I enjoy all the characters and the plot. Other books in this series. Mark is a Day Boy.

I’m glad I didn’t order the next book at the same time I ordered this one or I’d feel compelled to read it. I had hamiltom real hard time with the first book but after I got through it and the characters started taking a life of their own I was real happy with this one. I understand that later on in the series she turns rather slutty, and I’m thinking I might just skip ahead to those books, if I read any more at all, just because that would at least be entertaining. And Anita will learn that m are some secrets better left buried—and some people better off dead….

It almost felt like a children’s book, where all the plots tie up neatly at the end. As darkness begins to fall, Anita realizes that the zombie, which will not grow sore or tired, might be hiding on one of the various garbage cans out on the street.


I was left wanting. Anita Blake is back at it again. What more could a girl ask for?

I just don’t understand their appeal. I continue to adore Ronnie, and I even have a new favorite character: Guilty Pleasures Laurell K.

About the Author Laurell K. Louis with her family. When she wakes up, she and Wanda are both prisoners at Gaynor’s home, guarded by Gaynor’s bodyguards Bruno and Tommy, Salvador’s bodyguard herself, and a zombie chimera created by Salvador. I know a lot of people love the Anita Blake series, but I don’t think I’ll be one of them.

Then, Anita acts all shocked about it. Murder, mayhem, voodoo, and sexy vampires. Anita also finds out that she is much more powerful in regards to being copse animator than expected, and in a most gruesome way too. Anita Blake begins by meeting a potential new client in need of her animator skills.

The Laughing Corpse by Laurell K. Hamilton

Pink is laurel a color, so dislike it if you want; but, also, pink is our childhood. Tastes differ; I am even willing to admit my taste in literature in non-existent. Anita must now find the killer Even though I didn’t care for either the novel or the graphic novel of Guilty PleasuresI decided to give this series another chance.

Also gone are boring characters: At the funeral, she meet’s Peter’s brother, John Burke. Although Salvador is angry that Gaynor didn’t tell her that his ancestor was an animator, she continues with the hhamilton. This monster ate a family of three members, leaving only blood splattered everywhere What a rush!!!

Burke was killed to keep the secret, but Antonio forgot to retrieve the gris-gris, providing the clue Anita needed to solve layghing mystery. Wanda dated Gaynor until he met Cicely, a beautiful but sadistic deaf woman. She visits the murder scene, and sees the remnants of a family, which she deduces was torn apart by an undead creature of some sort, possibly a flesh-eating zombie.

Write a customer review. The next day, the threats on her life continue, as two thugs attempt to kidnap Anita and her friend, investigator Ronnie Sims. Irving then tries to get Anita to reveal who the current Master of lxurell City is, only for Corlse to discover that it is Jean-Claude after he appears in an attempt to persuade Anita to accept her position as his human servant.

Lsurell want to punch this book in its smug little curly-haired kisser. This was so disrespectful. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

Plus the plot was the main focus. Try the Kindle edition and experience these great reading features: Dose anita ever date in this series? I’m betting on door number two!

Some of my casting: But, how can you say anything is feminist that hates women and only seeks male approval? She also spends WAY too much time yakking it up with Jean-Claude, getting him to explain the whole human servant thing and then having him escort her around the Tenderloin which I couldn’t help but snicker and yell, “STEAK! Later that evening, Anita visits the Laughing Corpseand speaks to its new manager, former small-time hood and now small-time vampire Willie McCoy.

The Laughing Corpse by Laurell K Hamilton

At the cemetery Salvador informs Anita that she gave Peter a gris-gris to raise his power enough to raise Gaynor’s ancestor, as she was unwilling to perform a human sacrifice in front of witnesses. Salvador sends her bodyguard Enzo to get Wanda, and forces Anita laughjng begin the ritual that will raise Gaynor’s ancestor.

The story this time around was told in a much cleaner, more traditional format that made it much easier for me to follow.
