I just do not like her as a character; I don’t care whether she survives; I don’t care about her dating life; I don’t care if she ends up as a rug at the end of the book. I read a short story in a zombie anthology where Anita raised the dead, and I thought: Dispatched from the UK in 2 business days When will my order arrive? Negotiating with the local vampires, of course, requires getting further involved with Jean-Claude and he never keeps anything simple Like in previous books, this has several storylines intertwined — but also like the previous books, they all come together.
