Obsidian Butterfly - Anita Blake

Strong women remind me of my mother and my aunts. In other words strong maternal images. And this is what I get reading Anita Blake along with a lot of gunfire, mayhem and other images of life better read than lived. Blake takes a break from her two boyfriends and fly to help another friend solve a mystery. This time Aztec mythology comes into play, a turn I appreciate. It's longer than some of the other books, but well worth the read - if all you want to do is relax and escape the world. And since I do sometimes want just to escape it is worth the few dollars for a paperback edition.
