Circus of the Damned (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #3) by Laurell K. Hamilton

"Circus of the Damned is a combination of traveling carnival, circus, and one of the lower rungs of hell. Out front, fanged clowns dance above the lights that spell the name. Posters stretch from the sides of the bulding proclaiming, "Watch zombies rise from the grave. See the Lamia-half-snake, half-woman." There is no trickery at the Circus, everything advertised is absolutely real. It is one of the few vampire tourist attractions that welcome children. If I'd had a kid, I wouldn't have brought the little tyke near the place. Even I didn't feel safe." (from The Killing Dance of the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series #6 by Laurell K. Hamilton)

Jean-Claude needs to defend his territory in this book and those who wish to take over want not just the city, but control of Anita as well. Anita will finally be made into a vampire servant, but you'll have to read the story to find out whose she becomes. We are also introduced to Richard. I mean what series would be complete without a love triangle? Jammed pack with action, flame throwers, fight scenes, vampire children and snake like creatures. WOW! What fun.

I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
