This (IMHO) was the last book in the series that the TRUE Anita character was really displayed. She still shows her own will to overcome, think or otherwise blast out of any situation. Hamilton allows you to into the lives of other characters here also. The books after this are all basically paranormal romances with freaky sex scenes. (Not saying that's a totally BAD thing.....but true story lines make the scenes less "chica-powpow".)Every book after this seems like Anita gets hit with a date-rape drug and just succumbs. (nothing sexy about that)

If you like the character of Edward, this is the book for you. If you like Richard and Jean Claude, you may not like this book as much because they really aren't in it.

We finally get to learn more about Edward - assasin for hire...man...monster? And how much like him has Anita become? In this book they battle together, not against vamps or wolves, but against a different kind of monster all together.

Not my favorite story, but I really do like Edward, so it was still worth reading.

This book is very different from the previous Anita Blake series. In this one, the reader gets to know more about Edward the Bounty Hunter. I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. He certainly is not as mysterious as he once was. This book is not for the faint of heart. There are many bloody scenes and some involve children. Overall, it was a very good book.

Although it seemed to drag out a bit longer than the previous 8 books, it was still a good read. I missed Jean-Claude throughout the entire thing, but it was great seeing more of Edward, and one can only hope there is more of him still in the books to come! :)

Anita Blake, the tough, sexy vampire executioner, zombie animator, and police consultant for preternatural crimes in St. Louis, hunts monsters in New Mexico in the ninth book of Laurell K. Hamilton's excellent series. Edward, Anita's mentor in slaying, asks Anita to return the favor that she has owed him since she killed a backup he brought in to protect her. He needs Anita's preternatural expertise as well as her firepower. Something is skinning and mutilating a few of its chosen victims, and dismembering others. Edward has no idea what creature could be responsible for such heinous crimes.
Summoning Anita has its downside for Edward, since it means letting her onto his turf. Anita is surprised to find that this normally aggressive man has a personal life, and shocked by his ability to be entirely different from the stone cold killer she's known. She also has problems with the cop in charge in Albuquerque, who believes her powers must be evil, and with the other backups Edward has brought in. Most of all, she has to deal with her own vulnerability--she's tried to shut down her ties to her vampire and werewolf lovers and go it alone, but it turns out to be harder than she thought.
