Product Description

From Amazon

When Anita Blake's boss at Animators, Inc., informs her that she's expected to raise 300-year-old zombies from a field of jumbled bones just to settle a land dispute, she's understandably annoyed. But as soon as she arrives in Branson, Missouri, to do the deed, the job gets more interesting. A psychotic sword-wielding vampire starts committing multiple murders in the area, and Anita must call on Jean-Claude, her powerful fanged suitor, for help. As always, Anita prevails over the undead, keeping Jean-Claude at arm's length, clearing the cemetery land of an ancient enchantment, and nailing the vampiric killer in one fell swoop. --This text refers to an alternate Mass Market Paperback edition.


“Highly-charged, well-written, no holds-barred… jaw-dropping.”—Denver Post

“Breathtaking.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch

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

5.0 out of 5 stars The best one yet! Lots of Jean-Claude!! June 30 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It is official that I'm addicted to this series. I've even neglected the Merry Gentry series, Laurell K. Hamilton's faerie novels, which I started reading before the Anita Blake one. This is my favorite one to date. This series just keeps getting better and better! And the best part is that there is a lot of Jean-Claude in this one. The most I'd read him was in Circus of the Damned, and there are only bits and pieces of him in the other three, but he plays a more prominent role here. Bloody Bones illustrates the most challenging monsters Anita has ever had to deal with. Teenagers have been slaughtered in a small city of Missouri. The culprit is a creature unlike anything Anita has ever seen. It is stronger than a vampire, more dangerous and immortal to the core. To make matters worse, she has to raise an entire graveyard of three-hundred-year-old corpses to determine the fate of the graveyard's rather lucrative land, which is owned by a family of immortal faeries. Anita suspects that the graveyard raisings and the murders are connected, and with the help of her friends she is determined to bring all of those involved down...
Bloody Bones, like its predecessors, is nonstop action from beginning to end. The suspense is incredible, the fast-paced plot riveting. But it's more than just the action and suspense that kept me glued to this book. I loved that I finally got to know Jean-Claude in a deeper level. We learn more about Jean-Claude's background and history in a rather sexy bubble bath scene. JC and Anita fans will love to know that there is some closeness between them in this offering -- a fleeting closeness, but an important one nevertheless. And the best part is that Anita's werewolf boyfriend Richard is not in the way. I loved it! Laurell K.

4.0 out of 5 stars Way To Go Anita!!! June 26 2004
By Louise
Format:Library Binding
The Anita Blake series just keeps getting better and better. And Jean-Claude, the Master Vampire of the City (St. Louis) is back in business. Anita has to leave her werewolf-boyfriend Richard and her vampire-boyfriend Jean-Claude (In a previous novel she agreed to date both of them to find out who she wants (to have sex with)) back in St. Louis, when she is asked to travel to another part the country and raise a whole cemetery. A builder wants to use some land, but a local family is agaist him, because they say that the old cemetery beneath the ground is their family-burial ground. Anita has to raise the dead and ask them exactly what their family relations are. All is well, until something starts killing young boys in the woods, and a teenage girl dies from a vampire bite in her room. Anita has to look into a lot of stuff, being helped by her assistant, vampire-hunter-in-spe Larry. She is away from her usual turf, and the police in this part of the country are not too happy about the famous vampire-hunter doing what they think is their job. Anita has to call for help, and the only one who can help her is Jean-Claude, the gorgeous vampire who wants Anita as his lover and human servant. Anita has resisted him for a long time, and she is not so sure what she feels. There is a lot of drama, a lot of bad vampires and the fey are introduced in this book, which make for some new and exciting ways to cheat, do magic and much more.
Another triumph for Laurell K. Hamilton

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bloody Good Time! March 3 2003
By Amanda
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In Bloody Bones, the fifth installment of the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series, Anita Blake becomes the busiest vampire executioner/zombie raiser in the world. Ok, she may be the ONLY vampire executioner/zombie raiser in the world, but still a busy one nonetheless. First, she is hired to raise an entire graveyard full of dead people nearly three centuries old. But on top of that, the police decide to include her in the investigation of the latest gruesome killings, of three young men. Gory details ensue, and soon Anita finds herself everywhere at once - everywhere dangerous. Oh, and did I also mention she has to contend with a very sexy Jean-Claude after she asks him for his help?
Of course, Laurell K. Hamilton does not stint on the blood and guts. I'm not real big on either one..., but I put up with all of the grotesque scenes because they are very crucial to the story. I think Laurell K. Hamilton has great ideas, and is very creative. Yes, I would prefer to have less gore, but I won't complain.
Unlike the book that came before this, 'The Lunatic Cafe', this is a real Anita/Jean-Claude book. They seem to be getting a little closer all of the time. There are a few scenes in this book between the two of them that are utterly priceless. This includes one []scene in a hotel room, and one life-saving scene. I have to say I like Jean-Claude a lot more than I do Richard, and I hope that Anita's relationship with him blossoms some more, and I hope we keep getting that wonderful []tension between them. I haven't been into a series this much since Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books, but I almost think I'm liking these even more - Hamilton mixes romance, drama, comedy, suspense and horror beautifully, and makes her readers come back for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anita Blake battles vampires and fairies Aug. 29 2002
By Moe811
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is a little bit of a departure from the previous. She is sent to a town outside of Branson, Mo., to investigate a possible vampire attack and finds much more. Coincidently, she was in the area on an assignment to raise a very old cemetery to solve a property dispute. A developer wants to build a resort and an old local family lays claim to the land. The own a restaurant and bar with the appetizing name of Bloody Bones. They also turn out to be fairies guarding the prison of an ancient and monstrous fairy named Rawhead and Bloody Bones who preys on children. Anita is busy, and the vampires in addition to the fey may be more than she can handle, so she asks for Jean Claude's help. The rogue vampires are causing all sorts of problems in the area, and the Bouvier family does not want Anita to raise the dead in their cemetery. Apparently, they are holding the monster in place.
This is a very quick moving and action packed addition to the series. Jean Claude is still proving himself as a Master of the City, and seems to really need Anita's help. Larry is really coming along as animator and vampire slayer, a very good addition to the cast of characters. The relationship between Anita and Jean Claude is also heating up nicely. All in all, a very good read.

I like Larry as a character and wish there was more of him in later books than flash-cameos. It was a rather good read, with a few too many subplots at times. Read more

The 5th book in a series starring Anita Blake, vampire hunter. As usual, and what makes these books a fast-paced read, the tone could be described as modern-day noir dragnet. Read more
