A Review by Rachel
Anita Blake has fallen in love with the leader of a local pack of werewolves but the master if the city (vampire) will not let it happen. Anita tries to keep them from killing each other and keep her self out of line of fire and try to find out what happened to eight missing lycanthropes.
I loved how this book had no drags and that almost every little thing led to something big so it had no wasted time or drags. All the characters had an important role that made the story really came a live and with Anita's wits I really got inspired by the fact she looks out for her self and doesn't let a man do stuff for her even if she is having a hard time with it. The third best thing about this book was that there was not only a few high points here and there but they were every ware. Danger and suspense incased this book and won't let you go until you pass out from lack of sleep.
I would recommend this book to any vampire, lycanthropes, and mystery and romance lovers. It's a real adventure to read and it is very smooth to read.

No more marks should equal no more powers, right? Sure, whatever. But alas, Anita is getting stronger, much more so than anyone realizes.
The fifth book in the series is more of a soap box love triangle thing than about the gore and raising zombies. After the bloodyness and violence of the 4th book, it's a nice change, which came at a perfect time. Although Anita gets really beat up in this book and there is violence and death, the usual.
Oh, yeah... Finally, for the second time, Anita Blake-tough as nails Animator a.k.a. The Executioner-has found love. Really, she has. We all know him as Richard Zeeman a.k.a. jr. high teacher; a.k.a. werewolf and second in line for the pack. Who could resist an idealistic-at times really annoying, strong, dark handsome werewolf? Anita sure can't, she can't get enough of him. Hmmm, yeah.
Of course Jean-Claude is duly pissed and there is some...tension...between the two. By some occurrence, the current pack's leader Marcus, whom Richard is fighting for leadership, offers Richard's services to Jean-Claude. Since the wolf is Jean-Claude's animal-each master vampire has power to call their own animal like Oliver had with snakes-he can also control werewolves as well. Basically, Richard is supposed to do what the Master of the City wants. I emphasize supposed to. Of course, that doesn't happen. A lot of anger and jealousy happen' here.
To add to the chaos of confusion, Marcus, the leader of the wolf pack and Raina, the alpha female wolf wants, needs Anita's help in finding out who is killing lycanthropes, werewolves specifically. In the past weeks, 8 werewolves have disappeared or ended up in violent death. With help from Edward and some reluctance help from Richard, Anita plunges forth.

Get hot for the sexiest vampire and the female vampire hunter who loathes to love him.

The story is set in St. Louis of the future where supernatural creatures are protected by the Constitution of the United States of America. You'll meet werewolves, vampires, the risen-dead, and their licensed killers. Anita Blake is the top licensed vampire killer in the city.

The King of the City, Jean-Claude, is a vampire straight out of Harlequin romance with a bite. A love story of dominant characters who seek to establish a relationship of equals, not master and victim. Jean-Claude and Anita provide some of the steamiest repressed sex scenes in horror novel history. But don't get comfortable; you are reading along, thinking love and tenderness, when WHAM! the guts of a close friend are spilled all over the page. This is the honesty of L.Hamilton's novels, anyone can die.

Anita is dating Richard, the second most important werewolf in St. Louis. (This does not amuse Jean-Claude.) This story begins when the husband of a missing werewolf asks for Anita's help to locate his wife. Anita works with the Preternatural Squad and learns that many werewolves are missing.

Her search for the missing werewolves leads her to the Lunatic Cafe; where the were-folk hang out. Her place in the wolfpack is assured when she
shoots up the place. She uses her dominant position in the pack to solve the mystery.

An interesting part of the novel is the romantic rivalry between Richard and Jean-Claude. Richard seems to be winning. (This does not amuse Jean-Claude.) Jean-Claude proposes a more even dating playing field or he will kill Richard. This set ups a very funny secondary story-line.

L.Hamilton has written another great Anita Blake read. A "Dawn of the Dead" on acid, but the acid has a bite. However, they are getting formulaic.
Why are all of the secondary characters with a bent, bent?

Now there is a weird book right. Anita Blake, the rock hard, Vampire Slayer, is still going out with Richard, the second in Comand of the local wolf pack. Then you should throw in Jean-Claude, the Master vampire of the City, who also has a thing for Anita. A jealous female vampire that wants Jean-Claude, and firmly believes that Anita is the only thing in the way. Then enter Marcus, the Leader of the Wolf Pack, that is having a little trouble with Richard, and wants to drag Anita in the middle of all the trouble. Not too forget, the crooked cops, that have a problem with Anita, simply because she is Female. Then there is Raina, the Lupa, or girlfriend of Marcus, who wants Richard dead, Gabriel, who leads the Leopard Pack, and eight different Shifters that are missing. One Naga that is skinned, and Kaspar, the Original hunter from the Swan Princess, the Original version, where the big bad hunter is taught a real lesson, and he wants revenge. If you mix all of them together, and still don't see trouble, then add everyones favorite Bounty Hunter Edward, and a nasty snuff movie, in which the Starlet dies, and Edward needs to avenge. Now if you don't see trouble, you should see an excellent book.
