In Circus of the Damned, a rogue master vampire hits town, and Anita gets caught in the middle of an undead turf war. Jean-Claude, the Master Vamp of the city, wants her for his own—but his enemies have other plans. And to make matters worse, Anita takes a hit to the heart when she meets a stunningly handsome junior high science teacher named Richard Zeeman. They’re two humans caught in the crossfire—or so Anita thinks.

    " Full of action with a touch of shapeshifting, vampire hunting, a murder or two and the latest creepy ... the Lamia. With each book she gets better and better .... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Haylie | 1/31/2014

    " pretty good like the last 2...~sPoIlErS~~ still cant really understand why she hates Jean-Claude so much. kinda confusing, he put the 3 marks on her to save her life all 3 times but she would rather die than be tied to him in any way. i think he loves her on some level and she loves him too but she doesn't want to cause he is a vampire. still a good book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristy Underwood | 1/31/2014

    " My favorite Anita Blake so far!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susie | 1/31/2014

    " Wasn't what I expected but it hit the spot "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julieanne | 1/18/2014

    " Series is picking up I'm interested in seeing how some of her relationships work out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle Southern | 1/15/2014

    " The series just keeps getting better and better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cherie | 1/13/2014

    " My ratings system is as follows. One star is GOOD. The book is entertaining, easy to read and you don't want to stop reading because something about the book is compelling you not to. Two stars is GREAT! This time the story is not only entertaining, but highly creative, unique, easy to read and hard to put down. Three stars is EXCELLENT. Here the book has all aspects of one and two stars, but now the book is thought and emotionally provoking. Four is AWESOME. This is the read that is not only creative, original and emotionally and utterly captivating, but you are overwhelmed at how talented and skilled the author is in telling you their story. Literary brilliance. Five is PHENOMENAL. This is the book that has all the components of the previous four ratings but leaves that lasting impression. It's the book that changes dramatically your point of view and your interpretation of experiences you or others around you endure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn Dattilo Watts | 1/12/2014

    " This is the book where we meet Richard. Jean-Claude is around in all his fanged glory and there are new baddies in town. Anita and Edward team up to bring down the baddies & readers get to find out a tad more about lycanthropes in Hamilton's world. All in all a less gruesome (for me at least) read than the last book. On to the next :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 1/8/2014

    " Great story, I love books with strong female character. Anita is awesome:) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Spencer | 10/23/2013

    " As addicting as the first two. But I still have issues with the writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thalia | 9/30/2013

    " The handsome Mr Zeeman gets introduced to the reader in this third part in the Anita Blake series. So just because of that it ranks among my favorites. I'll never understand how they can both be so stubborn. If Anita doesn't want him, I'll take him :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebekah (Silver Lily) James | 9/24/2013

    " I like Laurel Hamilton's direct style, and I appreciated the commentary that comes with the ebook editions I have been reading. However it looks as if she is following a little bit of a formula that wasn't as present as the first two books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caty | 8/24/2013

    " So when DO we get the hott vampire sex? Did I mention how I drool over Jean Claude? If she don't want him, I'll take him! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Val1780 | 7/15/2013

    " So far I've learned that raising zombies is dirty work, but someone's got to do it. This series is just an entertaining read with adventure and mystery (and zombies- which I don't think I'm a fan of). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorelle | 6/2/2013

    " Action packed, but too much Jean Claude focus for my liking ( Omigod ma pe bloody tite!!!) , but due to an increased focus on werewolves, it gets 4 stars. Give me big beefy and buffed over pale and pastey anyday! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcey | 1/27/2013

    " This was written in 1995. I like this AB better than the most recent novels. No endless sex scenes like her more recent books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charm Ann | 12/27/2012

    " Love it. Anita, Jean Claude, and Richard! Now add this sexy teacher too...omg! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 12/23/2012

    " I enjoyed this book. I've heard that later in the series, they tend to get a little weird; but this book, for what its worth, was still fun and interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 10/23/2012

    " There is a lot that goes on in this book. It felt like I was just flying through it. The big finale at the end wasn't completely believable, but it's a vampire book. I'm going with it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cassandra | 10/21/2012

    " I'm really liking this series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam Herrmann | 10/4/2012

    " Yes, I am hooked on this series, thanks to Carol. Now Anita has a "boyfriend" - so I'm excited to see where this will go in the next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz Sortais | 3/27/2012

    " I found this book to be a little better than the second. I like that there was more romance in this book and the relationship between Anita and Jean-Claude develops more. A love triangle might be brewing as well, will have to continue reading the series to find out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janie 美 | 12/4/2011

    " First Anita book I read. It was so good that when I finished the last page, I closed the book, sat it beside me on my bed, laid there and thought about the story for about 10 minutes, then picked the book back up and started to re-read from page one! I've never read a book twice in a row before. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 8/9/2011

    " exellent book, couldn't put it down! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jammie | 5/24/2011

    " Trash and violent vamp murder mystery! LOVED IT! Richard is introduced in this one. I HATE Richard. But I loved Mr. Oliver and the Lamia! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal | 5/21/2011

    " Wow - best in the series so far! Freakin' scary as hell at moments but oh so worth it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonya | 5/20/2011

    " Not my favourite of the series but any book with Edward in it is a bonus "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn F. | 5/8/2011

    " 2nd time re-reading this - this time by audiobook. I also have the paperback.

    One of the better Anita Blake books. The snake lady was scary! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles | 4/28/2011

    " Yet another Anita Blake book also fun this time with vampire politics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ? Ashleigh ? | 4/27/2011

    " this was the best book out of this series so far. it was exciting and fast paced.
    i just hope the rest of the books in the Anita Blake series are this good "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle | 4/26/2011

    " The series just keeps getting better and better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jami | 4/20/2011

    " Anita Blake does it again. She saves the day for humans and supernatural alike. I am terrified of snakes so what a better story than Anita fighting a snake that is bigger than a horse? She defeats the beast and comes out on top in the Circus of the Damned. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Irene | 4/17/2011

    " Three books- no sex- she must be making up for it in later books. She found out Richard is a werewolf. She definitely has feelings for Jean-Claude but she's dating Richard right now. Best quote:
    Heads they win, tails you lose
    That just about sums up her books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelly | 3/31/2011

    " I am quite enjoying these on audio while I get actual work done!! "
