A review of Laurell K. Hamilton’s ‘Circus of the Damned’ chapter thirty three


I have just been told that Chris Brown and Rihanna are back together. If this is true, I am deeply saddened.

It was a hour before dawn. When all the Whos down in Whoville were asnooze in their beds without care. Sorry, wrong book. If I get to stay awake until dawn, I get just a tad slaphappy.

You must never get any sleep, Anita. You live in (un)righteous fury 24/7. Her and Lawrence were out with the last clients of the night, and the night’s work is done. Walking back to Lawrence’s car, her beeper goes off with an unknown number. She walks into a tombstone because Lawrence asks about the murders, which are very prolific and about which she was talking to Bert in front of him. And you’re surprised how?

She then tells Lawrence not to call Bert Mr. Vaughn because he’s just a co-worker and not his boss at all. Whatever.

Anita reaches a payphone because this is 1995 and there are no mobile phones yet. Well, they are around but for some reason no one in Anita Blake has one because they’d be too useful. The page is from Irving, and he’s reporting that JC wants to see her right now. JC has the ability to call wolves see, and can mind control Irving into doing whatever he wants. JC has some info on Aztec Joe for her, and upstanding member of the community that he is, he’s not telling the police what’s up. What a guy.

Irving was Jean-Claude’s creature. Jean-Claude could call wolves the way Mr. Oliver called snakes. The way Nikolaos had called rats, and wererats. They were all monsters. It was just a choice of flavours.

Well, at least you’ve finally explained calling after three books.

Anita decides to take Lawrence with her to Circus of the Damned. What happened to you wanting to keep poor, innocent, naive Lawrence safe?

  1. …wait, doesn’t Larry work at Anitamtors Inc. too? How is Bert not his boss then?

    BTW, flavor has become my most hated word in this series. She talks about flavors of therians, of vampires, of psychics, of law enforcement…it gets really maddening. Especially since, like most of her verbal tics, everyone else uses it too. I think I could tolerate it if just Anita did it, but the fact everyone does (along with sharing other aspects of her speech style) makes my head explode.

  2. Am I the only one bothered by the fact that vampires can somehow control not just animals but were-animals as well? Because that just reeks of Unfortunate Implications.
