A review of Laurell K. Hamilton’s ‘Burnt Offerings’ chapter thirty two

The doorbell rings. Anita asks ‘Oh, who could it be?’ which sounds so contrived I expect a bunch of white people to jump in and one of them is a random celebrity and then there’s a musical bit. Or something.

Anita pulls out a gun from one of her secret gun-hiding places and immediately decides that whoever is at the door is out to kill her. Riiiight.

Zane goes to the door. It is a delivery man with flowers from JC. Wink. Anita now has the machine gun, and everyone is waiting by the door. Ronnie demands that the delivery man drop his gun, and now Anita has the firestarter. The delivery man is just waving his gun around, and Zane slaps the clipboard from his hands. Because, you know, when you have super strength, that’s how you react. Rather than leaping on the guy. This means that while Ronnie and Anita fire uselessly, Zane sort of walks into the delivery man’s gun and gets shot.

Anita and Ronnie kill the delivery guy. Ronnie manages to shoot the entire top of his head off.

Zane is dying. I think I’m meant to feel sad, but he was subjecting to people in his care to sexual assault for profit I can’t.

  1. Clipboard vs. leopard, the eternal struggle. So enraged was Zane to see his people’s ancient, paper-holding enemy, he became blind to a greater danger.

    Also, glad you’re feeling better. And sorry that your healthy body means you are once again burning your mind in the flames of Hamilton.
