Not  to worry.  'Ted' returns along with his posse.  :bigwink2:  Mayhem ensues.

The other guys just seem to be hanging around hoping to get her sexual crumb leftovers. I'd like to see her team up with him more for a good story, unless she's already done that and I've missed it. So far I've only read 4 out her her million books, so bear with me. I'm also working on the 'Black Dagger Brotherhood'.  Very nice.

:BULLWHIP:
Obsidian Butterfly is a good one to find out more about the mysterious "Edward".  Much, much more including the fact that he can be a first class prick.

Actually, I kind of like that. He's not  some simpering boy-toy laying around on her bed all day waiting to get screwed, he can actually take care of himself instead of being rescued every five minutes... Plus he's a total bad-ass.

There's something to be said about a man that can take care of himself and you too if need be.   Out of all the men hovering around her only Edward seems to know what it means to be a man.

Well,....(sorry,girls....)...I prefer Jean Claude,

and not because of his "midnight blue eyes" or his french charm or his "Master of the city" role.


 

Main reasons:

1.)He was born as a peasent=>In his veins does not flow aristocratic blood

(First whipping boy,and than a prostitute for the others, he had to work to earn his place in (vampire) society.)

 

2.)Both of them are sharing the same pain of growing up,Both of them are carrying the same scares

(...and they both killed the "Things" who have caused them those scars)

 

3.)He is not running away from his vampire-side.(Like that guy from "Twatlight" or Stephen Salvatore..).

"I love you as much as i can",those were his words ,when he tried to express his feelings (in "Bloody bones",I think)

 

4.)although he pointed out that "there are some things that he wouldn`t do even for her",he is constanly changing and making compromises,

....and so on,and so on....

Well he is probably one of the least threatening of her guys, but he let a bunch of other vamps and bad guys beat her up in Circus of the Damned, right in front of him,  for no good reason other than he just felt like it, after she asked him for a favor, sooooo...I'm not a fan of Jean-Claude...but I'm sure he's plenty hot,  but not trustworthy completely.

No he's not and he has this maddening habit of hiding behind her skirts.  He's been doing it since Guilty Pleasures when he got her to kill Nickalos.  Reminds me of Stanley Tweedle with fangs!

You're both behind on the books so you're unaware of the character development that's taken place in the latter books.  Large and small changes have occurred.

Maya, your interpretation of Anita's need to have sex with the supernaturals is flawed.  She's infected with the Ardeur.  The Ardeur feeds on sex the way that vampires feed on blood.  Are you, a Founding Member of Kaisluts, being judgmental?!?  :new_shocked:  Oh, no, say it ain't so! 
Could this be jealousy?  Because I could so see myself dealing with all those guys Anita bitches about having to sleep with.  I wouldn't complain about all that wonderful sex.  Do you imagine yourself wearing Anita's thong?:partytime2:  Oh, yeah, been there, imagined that!  :bigtup:

I won't spoil you further so there's no more to say, and invisitexting isn't happening with this crappy browser.  :u055a:  Sometimes I wonder why I dumped IE.

I've actually read all of them up to Skin Trade and Anita always seems to be pulling Jean Claude's metaphysical bacon out of the fire.  I don't see him risking himself.  Even when dealing with Marmee Noir it's the wolves that come to her rescue not Jean Claude.

Some of the characters have grown such as Nathaniel.  He is much less "needy' now which is a good thing and Jason has also become more sure of himself.  But the truth is Jean Claude still waits for Anita to do his dirty work and doesn't lift much more than a finger when she needs help.

I fully agree with Edward's statement  when he tells her "You should have killed Jean Claude yourself before it all got too deep."

Well I did state that I haven't read all the books yet, and the ones I have read are not necessarily in chronological order. As for Anita and her 'pile of puppies' bedchamber, more power to her, nothing judgemental about that. I would rather see better plot development instead of using the 'ardeur' as an excuse for Blake to have all these Supes running around her bedroom. I just seems that's what happens when the author runs out of ideas...

As for me being jealous???...Surely you jest. Anita's body count is still not anywhere close to mine, and probably never will be.

*snort*

Fair enough.  I don't count the partners myself.  Her whinging and complaining about all the sex does become annoying at times. 

I enjoy Hamilton's Meredith Gentry books more these days, but I keep reading Anita Blake in hopes...let's just say I keep up with them in hope.  We're probably in agreement about the supernatural kingdom crap.  It's becoming a drag, and all the threats against Anita, Richard and Jean-Claude are a bore.  Too bad she can't come up with a dazzling plot once in a while.  Best thing I read in that plot-line was a recent short story, but it was another threat against one of her entourage.  It's called Flirt, if anyone's interested. 

Come to think of it, most of Laurell's guy friends and relations have long hair.  Perhaps there's a connection?

I haven't checked out any of Hamilton's other heroines yet. I'm reading some of the other series that Charlaine Harris has out. There's the Lily Blake series, The Aurora Teagarden Mysteries and the Harper Connelly series. Only one of those pertains to anything 'supernatural' and that's the Harper Connelly stories. She's an investigator that can find the dead and speak to them, similar to Anita Blake, only they're not zombies when she finds them. THe other 2 series are strictly mysteries, and neither character is a cop or any kind of Supe. Still good though..

Yes.

I prefer serious books like Frank Herbert`s "Dune",or "Startide rising" or Riverworld series.

First one I read when I was 14.

(...Oh..the sandworms,prophecy,forever dark skies.....I` will never forget it...

Wait a minute...... When I think about it,,,It reminds me of the Lexx......)

This interview with Michael was wonderful!  I read it back when I was still lurking.  He's such an intelligent and thoughtful man.  I can only imagine that getting to meet him and spend some time with him must be a truly enjoyable experience.  I hope I get the opportunity someday... there are very few actors I'm at all interested in meeting.  In fact, there are only two, really!  David Tennant from Doctor Who, and Michael McManus.  My respect for their work is boundless.
