Laurell K Hamilton writes what can best be described as S&M vampire porn (or S&M fairy porn, if you’re reading the Meredith series). This is really too bad because she’s a good writer and her early books were quite good.
I don’t know what happened though – did she decided the market for good supernatural fiction was saturated? Did she decide that plots were over-rated? Did she just run out of ideas? Whatever it was, after the first couple of Anita books she dispensed with plot and every book became:
- Monster comes to town (chapter 1)
- Anita has sex with everything that moves (next few hundred pages)
- Monster leaves, or Anita kills monster (final chapter)
But, yes, I keep reading them. And in the last few books I think maybe the original Hamilton is starting to re-emerge. In Dead Ice I think there are only two sex scenes, and one of them is implied!!!!111!!!
