Some Light Reading

So I borrowed the latest Laurell K. Hamilton novel, Seduced By Moonlight, being the third in the series detailing the adventures of Meredith Gentry, Faerie Princess and Private Investigator.

My gracious, this series is getting sillier and sillier. The entire book covers the events of approximately THREE DAYS in the life and doesn't really cover a plot arc as such, just all kinds of wild sex, strange hallucinations and people suddenly becoming more powerful thanks to Merry. Several new color-coded sidhe are introduced, none of whom have any particular distinction in personality unless you count a chronic drinking problem as a personality. I'm going to have a hell of a time keeping track of all these people. Because, yes, I probably will read the next installment, because as ludicrous as it all is, it's no more ludicrous than your average beach novel. It's just a beach novel with mythological flair. Switch off your brain and enjoy the ride. (Or, rather, rides. Quite a few of them.)

Not a hell of a lot else to report, since most of the day got consumed with the book. Work was just work. I'm off to go meander the internet now.

And this is after a very good editor has gone over the manuscript too. I know who is editing her at Ballantine. I think her Ace editor has a better idea of how to get her to plot rather than boink with the vampire books.

Well, the Anita Blake books have gotten boinkier and boinkier as the series has progressed. But they do tend to have a bit more of a plot, yeah.
