A remote Florida island is the perfect wedding destination for the upcoming nuptials of Anita's fellow U.S. Marshal and best friend Edward. For Anita, the vacation is a welcome break, as it's the first trip she gets to take with just wereleopards Micah and Nathaniel. But it's not all fun and games and bachelor parties... In this tropical paradise Micah discovers a horrific new form of lycanthropy, one that has afflicted a single family for generations. Believed to be the result of an ancient Greek curse, it turns human bodies into a mass of snakes. When long-simmering resentment leads to a big blowout within the wedding party, the last thing Anita needs is more drama. But it finds her anyway when women start disappearing from the hotel, and worse--her own friends and lovers are considered the prime suspects. There's a strange power afoot that Anita has never confronted before, a force that's rendering those around her helpless in its thrall. Unable to face it on her own, Anita is willing to accept help from even the deadliest places. Help that she will most certainly regret--if she survives at all, that is...--… (lisätietoja)

I really loved Laurell K. Hamilton's early Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series books but I did feel like she lost the thread a bit in the middle of the series. I am glad to say that it seems like she is focusing more on the storyline and less on the sex of late which makes the books better in my opinion. I am reviewing this book based on an ARC received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion. ( )

Enjoyed the story, read it in 2 days. But I have enjoyed other books in the series more. It was a good blend of private life and Marshall life. I am very interested in finding out what happens with Olaf in the future. ( )

I don't care what you all think, I love this series. However, I am still waiting for some real progression in the Anita/Jean Claude arc. The wedding would be nice since it's been 4 books already.
Also, can Nathaniel please get some man-love from Mica? ( )

4 stars

In the Serpentine, Laurell K. Hamilton brings humor and her usual mix of mesmerizing sex and violence. This long awaited book will thrill fans as the darkly enigmatic and coldly practical vampire hunter, Edward is finally getting married! Edward has worked and helped train Anita in her career as a vampire hunter/U.S. Marshal. As his best friend and a woman it has been difficult to get along with Edward’s love interest Donna. Donna has always been suspicious of their relationship although they have never been intimate. But Edward believes Donna’s feelings are in the past and Anita has been invited to be a part of their wedding. Anita brings her lovers Micah and Nathaniel. But soon jealousy rears its ugly head and then a serial murderer darkens the happy nuptials. Plus Micah is distracted by a family of snake shifters who need his help. As Anita takes it upon herself to try to solve the murders, protect Edward’s family from a catastrophic meltdown and support Micah. She has her hand full. But the wedding is in jeopardy when a conniving bride’s maid and sudden doubts from the bride bring the wedding to a standstill! This joyous occasion may not end so well, Anita save it from utter disaster?

There are plenty of things to enjoy in this erotic fantasy/murder mystery. Anita has grown more comfortable with herself and her sexuality. I liked that she isn’t as self conscious and has seemed to settle down with those she loves. Anita’s books are known for their erotic scenes, however, this book seems to have less sexual scenes than usual which may be a let down for some fans. Plus, her vampire lover, Jean-Claude makes a very minor role in this book. Many fans (including myself) will feel that the best part of the storyline is the cold and calculating Edward. That he could actually marry such a sweet lady when he is such a remorseless killer is hard to understand. His ‘secret’ life with Donna is compelling reading because it is so strange. The change in his personality from when he is with his fiancee is so different than how he is in his normal ‘professional’ life is fascinating reading. Even now, I still can’t really envision Edward marrying!

The mystery in the story is interesting but somewhat anticlimactic. Most of the plot is centered on the wedding and the fights and difficulties of trying to keep it from not being called off. I wish the author has spent more time developing the snake shifter story and the mystery. The snake shifters seemed unfinished and tragic. I felt that the author didn’t take full advantage of incorporating them into the story. Overall, this was a highly entertaining read, Laurell K. Hamilton is unparalleled in creating characters that you can’t forget. I can’t wait to find out how Anita will finally settle her love life and if her wedding will also take place soon!
