Though I'm not passionate about the series, nor on-board with all the decisions Hamilton made, I'm still interested. I like that there are a lot of grey areas with her characters. I think I'd enjoy these more if everything didn't wrap up so neatly at the end.

This book is much darker than the first, Anita loses heroes, finds true evil, and fights monsters that exist only in your worst nightmares. The book is darker than the graphic novel version... because there is no way to draw a picture of a murdered child... but the description is worth a thousand sad pictures. The world in these novels is a better place with Anita keeping the monsters at bay.

The thought that I had actually spent money on anything pink was more than I could bear.

In an alternate world where vampirism has just become legal, Anita Blake works as an animator (someone who raises zombies), while hunting "criminal" vampires on the side. Anita comes up against a frightening voodoo priestess, Dominga Salvador.
