I just finished this book. One of her better books. I love Laurell Hamilton's books, however, I prefer the older books in the collection when Anita was still a hardcore vampire slayer and not a hardcore sex addict. I like the newer books okay but they seem to be so focused on the ardeur that they don't have the plot that the first in the series did. I recommend this one to anyone who enjoys Anita in her crime fighting days. I have read five books in the series but I'm geting them out of order. Does anyone have a list of how the order goes?

This book felt more put together and a little darker than the other Anita books before it. It also points out that you don't have to be a monster to be truely evil.

I like the earlier books better in the series before Anita picked up the Ardeur. I like the earlier Anita who seemed grittier and I liked her morals that she stuck to. Although the newer Anita has some serious magical power, I liked the hands & guns proficient Anita better who relied on her wits more than magic. I do not mind a little sex but the newer books are becoming more erotica than fiction. Seems each new book adds more lovers to Anita's bed, I wonder when she will reach enough.

5th book in the Anita Blake Vampire Series. Honestly, I still like the first four the best. ;) But this one was a good breath of fresh air from the "sameness" that they were developing. A good plot, and hey, JEAN CLAUDE.

One of the more sexually graphic of the series. A big tease with the Jean-Claude possibilities...

I really liked this book. In the earlier book series Anita was this hard core kick ass slayer who never showed much of a human side to her persona. She comes across as much more human in admitting her feelings of attraction to Jean Claude. Finally!! I was getting worried that her lifestyle and powers were forcing her to become one of the "monsters" that she hunts. I like that there is more romance in books four and five. It was a good mix of romantic interest and her ability to be the "executioner". I look forward to reading the next book and how Anita handles dating both Richard and Jean Claude.
