Animator and vampire hunter Anita Blake is about to discover that some secrets are better left buried—and some people better off dead.

Great characters, Great story, fabulous read!
Laurell K. Hamilton is one of the premier authors to mix vamps, shifters, zombies, ghouls, werewolves ...... in the genre of mystery, science fiction, horror and fantasy. This is usually not my thing, I preferre only Vamps! but I wanted to try Laurell's first book just to get a taste, and I liked the book.
Anita Blake the tough protagonist is not my ideal, but she grows on you as an animator, raises the dead and Vampire killer - that's her legit job. She's out to solve a series of crimes involving Vamps and gets mixed-up with some good and bad ones. There's Zombies and all matter of supses and if this interests you, the book is great. At times I couldn't stop reading the action was so good.
I LOVE the Vampire Jean-Claude so much that I will read the next book in this series and it seems Anita has this strange attraction to Jean-Claude too, but she's supposed to kill Vampires.......
3 Stars, It's no 'Interview with a Vampire' 4 or 'Dracula' 5

I love Anita, not all women cry in a corner waiting for some muscle bond hunk to save them. Men are great and strong providers but we women are awesome too go Anita.
