Obsidian Butterfly, the ninth of Laurell K Hamilton's Antia Blake Vampire Hunter novels, is not quite the mixture as before, concentrating as it does on Anita's occasional partnership with the stone-cold killer Edward rather than on her love for werewolf Richard and vampire Jean-Claude. Edward brings her down to New Mexico when Ted, his legal bounty hunter secret identity, is called in on an investigation he cannot handle. Some creature hitherto unknown in this world, where mere monsters are commonplace is transforming victims into skinless, bloody automata and no one has any idea why.

Hamilton provides the usual thrills, moments of perverse eroticism and extreme supernatural ickiness; she also delves rather more deeply than usual into what makes her heroine tick and into Anita's fears that she may be becoming too like the sociopathic ruthless Edward for her own sanity and salvation. The stark desert terrain of New Mexico is neatly visualised--the novel's background is effectively used as a counterpoint to the heroine's fears and uncertainties. As usual, Hamilton does an effective job of delivering what her audience have come to love and, for once, she gives them a little bit more. --Roz Kaveney -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

"Obsidian Butterfly" is the long-awaited Anita Blake novel in which Edward the Bounty Hunter finally calls in the favor our heroine owes him for his services in "The Killing Dance." So Anita heads to New Mexico, where something is out ripping the bodies of some people apart while removing all the skin from others. Whatever type of monster this might be, it is something so bad that even Edward is spooked. Anita is spooked because Edwards, in his cover identity as "Ted," has a girlfriend who has two children. If all this was not troubling enough throw into the mix the two other backups Edward has enlisted, Olaf, the serial-rapist who keeps threatening Anita, and Bernardo, who keeps trying to hit on her, as does Ramirez, a local cop. Oh, and did I mention she has been celibate for months? This title around the title refers to both a bar and the English name of Itzpapalotl, the vampire Master of the City, which serves to indicate that whatever it is that is out there has something to do with Aztec mythology. One again, Anita Blake, vampire hunter/animator/necromancer has her hands full.
Laurell K. Hamilton is perhaps the finest writer of horror stories around as in book after book in this series she comes up with gruesome scenes that match the best you can find in Stephen King or Clive Ba rker. In "Obsidian Butterfly" this comes when the last of a group of flesh-eating zombies on a killing spree in a hospital makes its way into the nursery. The main problem with the Anita Blake series, as others have pointed out, is that there is a sense in which things keep repeating themselves as our heroine mouths off to the wrong people, complains about her love life, and keeps calling herself a monster as her personal body count continues to rise.

Anita schuldet Edward noch immer einen Gefallen, und diese Schuld soll jetzt beglichen werden.
Erst freut sich Anita darauf mehr über das Privatleben von Edward zu erfahren, doch irgendwie ist nichts so wie sie es sich gedach hat.
Spätestens als sich die beiden wegen ihren Beziehungsproblemen gegenseitig beraten, wird klar, dass das 9.te Buch um die gefürchtete Vampirjägerin ganz anders ist als der Rest.
JC und Richard werden zwar immer wieder erwähnt, doch wirklich anwesend sind sie nie!
Dafür gibt es einen Haufen neuer Charaktere die zu begeistern wissen, allen voran Bernando und Olaf, die Asassin Kumpel von Edward.. sorry, hier in seinem Umfeld heisst er ja Ted, und ist ein Sonnenscheinchen von einem Kerl.
Das Ober-Super-Monster das während dieses Buches aufgebaut wird, ist dann am Ende zwar etwas entäuschend, aber das ist Nebensache, da die Menschlichen Monster hier eh mehr Gewicht haben.

If you are a first-time reader of Laurell K. Hamilton I would not suggest that you start with this book. Without, the background, motivations, and context of her series you would be lost. For those who have read the series and have become addicted to the fast pace, action packed, sexy dialogue, I believe this book will come as a disappointment.
There are portions of the book that do not ring true. By the last vampire slayer book, Anita could do everything from, thinking a heart into exploding, raising hundreds of vampires and dead at once, able to heal almost any injury, and having some werewolf powers -- in this book she seems to have forgotten that she has any power at all. The book also states that she has been able to stay away from her two main love interests for six months, which is not believable considering in previous books, one or the other refused to leave her alone for a day. Also it is not believable that Anita was able to get out of being Lupa, head of the were-people, and a vampires human first by just deciding she needed a break.
However, despite reviews, if you are an avid fan, you will still read this book. It is a change of pace to see Anita with totally different book characters as a change of pace. A few self-discovery points by "Anita" might come in handy "for context" when reading the next book of the series. Also, one or more of the characters of this new book look poised to show up in future books of the series.

One of my favorite things about the Anita Blake series is how rich Hamilton has made her alternate universe. Besides her absolutely wonderful heroine, there are so many supporting characters to fall in love with - Jean Claude, Asher, Jason, all of the wereleopards, just to name a few of my favorites. However, by the end of Blue Moon, there were such an overwhelming rush of characters vying for page space and such an emphasis on Anita's sex life, that I think the character of Anita herself was beginning to suffer for it.
I think that's why for me Obsidian Butterfly was so refreshing. Whereas the last three books especially (from the Killing Dance to Blue Moon) emphasized the romantic aspects of the series, this one got back down to exploring who Anita is as a character, not just where she stands in relation to the various studs who share her world. For that reason alone, I found it a more deeper, more satisfying read than Blue Moon, which bordered on the fringes of straight erotica.
It is now clear that Anita is a woman at her breaking point. She feels isolated and monstrous. She sees herself as duty-bound to choose one of two men - neither of which she seems too head-over-heels for at this point. There is one scene where she must do something typically Anita-like, i.e. gorey but necessary, which simultaneously makes a charming new love interest look at her with horror, and makes a serial killer fall in love. At the same time, the one man (Edward) who she has always though to be colder and more detached than her, turns out to have much more of a family life than she can ever expect. No wonder she feels monstrous and alone!
