Affliction Summary

Micah’s estranged father lies dying, rotting away inside from some strange ailment that has his doctors whispering about “zombie disease.”

Anita Blake makes her living off of zombies—but these aren’t the kind she knows so well. These creatures hunt in daylight, and are as fast and strong as vampires. If they bite you, you become just like them. And round and round it goes…Where will it stop? Even Anita Blake doesn’t know.

Four and 1/2 stars4 star

It was soooo nice to read an actual book without a million pages of sex. This book definitely reminded me of the Old Anita with a chunk of the new grown up Anita. Definitely worth the read.45

EEE cup?3 star

The Anita Blake books is kind of an up and down thing for me, but they are entertaining enough. I decided to write this review because of the whole Anita having EEE cup size. It bothers me because after 23+ books of reading about Anita we hear of the ginormous breasts out of nowhere. She always said she was well endowed but for a 5'3" woman size D is well endowed, size EEE is something worth mentioning the first time you describe Anita. As a result it just felt like there was a distinct character change, to me it's the same as recasting a main character in the middle of a TV series. It just felt sloppy and like a whim for LKH. I seriously doubt when LKH was writing about Anita for the first book she was imagining this woman with EEE breasts. Also, with all of the physical activities and things Anita does, she would have been complaining about those breasts from the beginning and I doubt any of those SWAT vests would even fit her. I wear a D cup and I complain more then Anita. This whole EEE cup thing is just annoying because it is illogical and I think reflection of some kind of immature fantasy of LKH.35


Affliction1 star

I used to like Laurel K. Hamilton's books now I wonder how she's ever managed to release so many, it's like she doesn't even try anymore. She has so many character's in her books it makes it hard to feel anything for any of them, but most importantly this series has absolutely no end in sight and in order for this series to have some kind of meaning it needs to end eventually. The sex in these books are just cheesy and completely unrealistic, the tone of the book bounces continuously from serious to porno constantly and the really sad part is that I will continue to read them because I feel that I've invested too much time in this series to just walk away and feel like it was a complete waste. There is NO end in sight! There is no over arcing storyline All good things MUST come to an end without an ending the series has no real meaning.15

SUCH A Letdown!2 star

I've read this entire series. Affliction seemed like partial pieces leftover and thrown in with an unfulfilling bite of where the next level/story continuance should have evolved. I managed to enjoy it somewhat since I love the characters. Usually the Marshall hunts have an intensity that leaves you tense with the suspense and you cannot put the book down. I put this book down for a month before I read from the middle to the end. I NEVER do that! The only other book in the series that disappointed me was Micah.25


It's 20142 star

I feel like this author is stuck in the last century. Someone needs to tell her that men with long hair in ponytails isn't very attractive...25


Loved it5 star

It's sooo her. If you are complaining, you don't know her.55


Challenge, mystery, sex, suspense.5 star

Laurell K Hamilton's latest Affliction contains all of her best features, complicated characterizations, challenge, mystery, sex and suspense. In accompanying Micah to the bedside of his dying, estranged father, Anita Blake is forced to deal with many of the challenges she often faces as well as a new wrinkle or two. There's plenty of police and executioner work, an unusual type of zombie, a nice, and slightly risky sprinkling of her excellent, signature sex and enough suspense to keep the pages turning quickly until the end, as well as revelations about both familiar and newer characters and Anita's maturing relationships with them and herself.55
