A review of Laurell K. Hamilton’s ‘Narcissus in Chains’ chapter fifty six


Everyone is stood around Damian’s coffin with a gun with just one round in because… we’re playing Russian Roulette now? I have pretty much given up trying to make sense of this book, there’s no plot. The lid is lifted up from Damian’s coffin and Damian tries to strangle Zane. People start screaming, no one shoots Damian, and Anita stands around, watching this happen, BECAUSE SHE’S FORGOTTEN THAT SHE’S A NECROMANCER WHO CAN CONTROL DAMIAN.

AGAIN.

ARJKRHRRRRRRRRRRRR

Anita tries to shoot Damian in the head but he lunges for her, knocks her to the ground, and rips open her chest. Wow, such good vampire hunter. Makes you wonder how she ever survived the first one, because she’s consistently crap at doing it.

I screamed again and had to adjust the angle of the gun, because if I’d pulled the trigger, the bullet would have gone through his head into my chest.

How are you holding that gun?

Anyway, Anita’s blood makes Damian snap back into his right mind. Who’da thunk it. Anyway, he’s safe because nothing in this series has a consequence.

Anything else on how Anita is totally going to become a wereleopard?

  1. Oh, but she can’t actually BE a wereleopard, oh no no no! Werepeople aren’t /really/ people, after all! They are only good enough to exploit for sex and recreation. Actually having to do the icky change?! Not our little white rose Latina! Honestly, LKH so consistently writes them as second-class citizens like its fine and dandy that it is just sickening 😦

  2. “I screamed again and had to adjust the angle of the gun, because if I’d pulled the trigger, the bullet would have gone through his head into my chest.”

    Maybe he motor-boating her? That’t the only explanation I can think of.

    Also, what is the “plot” of this book? I can’t remember. Why are we rescuing this guy? Why is *anything* happening?

    • This guy being rescued is a subplot. Their is a plot in the book but I don’t want to give out any spoilers. Lets just say involves the missing wereanimals.

      • I think I remember something about that. And maybe some snake-men, or something. Not sure what happened to that, though. I think LKH got distracted by something shiny. Or got so wrapped up in writing yet another sex/soap opera scene that she completely lost track of her plot.

        (Also, minor nitpick, but I think you meant “there” instead of “their”.)
