Only now, something is killing the Vampire’s and Anita has been called in to help then find the Killer of the dead.
with the help of Old, and new friends, Anita will need to fight whatever a 1000-year-old Master Vamp will throw at her.
“Important safety tip – never look a vampire in the eye.”
I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while now, but the series is on, book 26, so it’s a commitment.
I liked Anita. Often when a series is around just one character I can imagine it’ll get a bit tedious, but already she has so many layers I actually think I am going to love the series.
In some ways the series reminded me of TrueBlood/Southern Vampire Mysteries. Vamps out of the coffin, were-animals, bad case of religion.. etc, but Anita has much more dept.
Overall the writing is quick paced and whilst a lot is inner monologue, it perfectly describes Anita’s World.
Other characters; I loved Phillip. He was vulnerable in places like a child addicted to candy. I wanted to cuddle his big muscles.
I’ve heard Jean-Claude is a big thing in the rest of the series, but he mostly in a coffin for this one, but I am looking forward to the character development.
Such an interesting introduction to a world I know I am going to love. I cannot wait to get my teeth sunk into the rest of this series..
I Don’t date Vampires. I kill them.
