Anita Blake is back from her break from her men when troubles occurs with the her pard. Anita is dragged back into the danger and is starting to change when she meets her mate Micah. But that is not all for when the ardeur starts to come into Anita life all hell breaks loose.
So the storyline has pretty much lost a lot of the cop parts which is sad because they are well done by Hamilton. Even Anita’s job is going down the tubes a little. The story is now focused on what is going on with Anita and her pard. That part is interesting and to read about Anita and how she is changing.
The person I liked was Micah even though he seemed to be a little shady but all in all he became the perfect man for Anita, so far. He is powerful on his own but he compromises for Anita big need on that for her.
With the ardeur things are starting to heat up with the series. It is not just desire that is playing it is lust and very graphic. From the newest one these are still very tamed with the description. Personally it is not bad to read. She describes the scenes well and you are lost in the lust. At this point it is not too much.
As the book plays out I like how Hamilton is going into the past with Jean Claude and Asher. Those two are interesting because of Belle Mort who will be playing a key role with the ardeur.
Anita also will have a hard time understanding how she is infected but not. I still do not quite understand that part. It is explained more throughout the series but I can’t really remember.
But I like that she is mate to leopards and werewolves or at least part with them. Anita is a strong woman with enemies but is always loyal to those she says are her friends.
Sadly Edward is not in the picture but all Anita’s friends are making their rounds. Jason I have liked since the beginning is raising in the ranks to be important to Anita. The same with Nathanial.
All in all Narcissus in Chains was a good addition to the series of Anita Blake.
