I am not a fan of vampire novels and so when a friend recommended this series to me, it was awhile before I ordered the first book in the Anita Blake series. All I can say now is...WOW! I AM A FAN FOR LIFE!!! *laugh I just ordered books 2 - 4 in the series and will order the rest once those arrive. This book has everything: horror, romance, laughs...it's all here! I really enjoyed this book and can't wait for the others to arrive. If you're not a fan of vampire reads, trust me - after this one, you will be. And if you are a fan of vampire reads - this one will be a welcome addition to your library.

This book introduces Anita Blake, hardcore Vampire Killer. I felt it took me about 50 pages to really get into the book, but after that I was hooked. Not fluffy or romantic, this book is more Anne Rice gothic. Anita is one tough vampire killer!

Wow, this is a really odd read - NOT a romance, forget what the back cover said. There is ONE kiss and a lot of hinted at really kinky stuff. If you are looking for a Sherilyn Kenyon or a Christine Feehan type vampire novel, go elsewhere. HOWEVER, it is what I would consider a TRUE gothic horror novel. If you like that, go for it.

If Anne rice's vampire chronicles are softcore s/m porn, then "Guilty Pleasures' is extreme hardcore. Whips, chains, dungeons, bloodsports, sadism, masochism, mind control, bestiality, sex and terror....

Its got vampires though. And zombies, ghouls, were-folk. So I guess its better classified as horror. just to make sure, i'm going to have to read more of the series.

I love all the Anita Blake novels. But to really understand how she got to the person she is in the current books, you should start at the beginning. Here.

This is the first book of an excellent series. I found it quite easy to get sucked into the world of Anita Blake. Unlike the usual vampire/werewolf stories you find, this one focuses on Anita Blake, a Necromancer for hire in a world that accepts that humans aren't necessarily at the top of the food chain. Hamilton creates a world filled with every sort of nightmarish monsters, not simply vampires and werewolves. These bad guys are no secret to the human world....which only adds to the threat they can give to society. If your into the genre, it's a must read and the Anita Blake series, if hook, can provide a long and fruitful series of books that will keep you entertained and involved in her life just as you would in an excellent tv show or movie series.

BUFFY, MOVE OVER!
This is the book that started the whole Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter phenomenon. I swore I'd never get caught up in all the vampires and werewolves and zombies and other paranormal beastie literary mania washing around the country lately. Then I started reading Hamilton's series.
I should know better than to ever say 'never.' Now I'm hooked!
