Thursday Book Report: A Lick Of Frost

First of all, I owe an apology to Ms. Hamilton. I know I have made jibes about how her recent books had sunk to more prurient levels and storylines have suffered... but I think that with A Lick Of Frost she has found her groove again. This is the 6th book in the Meredith Gentry series and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The last few novels had Merry banging everything in sight... that has its time and place, but with such an interesting world to play with it was such a slow way to move the story along. Things happen in this story!! I don't mean that to be facetious in the least - I was very happy with how the story turned out; characters who I feel Hamilton had treated shabbily in the past were given a wonderful renewed glow. She focused less on the sex, and in fact at some point I had to look at the top of the page of a new chapter and thought to myself, "I'm on chapter __ and no one has had sex yet? I have to say - I'm really excited to see what will happen in book seven!

What's up with Hamilton and the sex? Dr. MS reads the Anita Blake series, and he says it's some really really raunchy screwing animals freaky deaky kind of sex.
