**This interview/review format was borrowed from Bookfool. She's great at it and always has the most interesting reviews :)
Give us a brief summary (spoiler free):
Circus of the Damned brings Anita back and dealing with the possibilities of having to be Jean Claude's human servant. She is also involved in a police investigation where it looks like vampires are attacking people. Trouble is brewing and of course Anita is in the middle of it.
What did you like about this book?
I liked this book because we were able to see a different side of Anita. She is struggling with her feelings for Jean Claude, trying to date, and working insane hours as always. Before she knows it she is also dealing with multiple master vampires and trying not to be killed. I also liked ending of this book even though I can't share the details with you here for fear of spoilers. Suffice it to say that it came across as more realistic than previous books.
Hmm...a dislike for me is that these books can be a bit gory. "Chunks of human flesh" is a bit of a turnoff. I tend to skim through those parts but I do love the action involved in the book. It keeps you on your toes wondering how Anita will manage to survive.
I know I'm only three deep into this series but this one is my favorite so far. I related more to Anita and I liked seeing that she struggled with her feelings over Jean Claude. Plus, as I've said previously I liked the ending of this one. I'm anxious to see what troubles Anita gets herself into next. And I almost forgot that I enjoyed the character of the new zombie animator that was introduced. Although I've already forgotten his name ;) All in all, a good read and I will be continuing on with this series.
My Rating/Recommendation: 4 out of 5; Recommended to those who enjoy dark urban fantasy.

**I'm planning on getting a few more reviews posted as soon as I can. I hate getting backed up and I'm already falling behind for this new year.
