Meet Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, in the first novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series that “blends the genres of romance, horror and adventure with stunning panache”(Diana Gabaldon).

Laurell K. Hamilton’s bestselling series has captured readers’ wildest imaginations and addicted them to a seductive world where supernatural hungers collide with the desires of the human heart, starring a heroine like no other...

Anita Blake is small, dark, and dangerous. Her turf is the city of St. Louis. Her job: re-animating the dead and killing the undead who take things too far. But when the city’s most powerful vampire asks her to solve a series of vicious slayings, Anita must confront her greatest fear—her undeniable attraction to master vampire Jean-Claude, one of the creatures she is sworn to destroy...

“What The Da Vinci Code did for the religious thriller, the Anita Blake series has done for the vampire novel.”—USA Today

    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 caught myself being unable to 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' a 4 or 'Dracula' a 5

    This series is an amazing read... But as the series goes along the books get more erotic... They aren't for the light hearted.
  • Sets a high bar for supernatural authors
