This is a very interesting book. It is a bit out of this world with all the sleeping around but, hey! A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do for the sake of herself and the ones she cares for. I really liked it and I recommend it most definately.

into the light
Imagine your nightmares (or fantasies) brought into our present time world. A werewolf for president? Vampires paying taxes? Shape shifters, witches, the supernatural living side by side with homo sapiens. How would you arrest some one who can bench press a bus? Ask Anita Blake. How would you reconcile loving and hunting the same species? Ask Anita Blake. How would you cope with becoming what you once reviled? Ask Anita Blake. Love, lust, predjudice, politics, personal growth, and mystery this series has it all. Ask Anita, she may not have all the answers, but she gives an excellent story while trying to find them. From Guilty Pleasures to The Harlequin you can't miss. And if you hurry you'll be eagerly expecting Blood Noir the same as me.

read the book
I have read all the Anita Blake books to this point... they are a really good series. Love the vamps and werewolves and just the whole story line. She is my fave author
Publishers Weekly, 2003-03-24 Anita Blake is one the more fascinating fictional heroines since Scarlet O'Hara-and a hell of a lot more fun than most. Despite her satin lingerie, short skirts and high heels, she kicks both human and non-human bad-guy butt-hard. Having gained immense supernatural powers and become an important force in the vampiric and lycanthropic communities of St. Louis in the 10 previous books, Anita begins this fantastic dark adventure by raising the dead and ends it by tackling a murderous monster. In between, she wades (literally) into a bloody investigation of a preternatural serial killer and (metaphysically and physically) into dangerous vampire politics. ber-vampiress Belle Morte has sent her dreaded surrogate, Musette, to demand that Anita's paramour, Jean-Claude, Master Vampire of the City, return the vampire Asher to her-a fate worse than a stake through the heart. In order to save Asher, Anita must be both sexually and psychically creative. Anita and the vampires also need head werewolf Richard to help defeat Belle Morte's designs. But can Richard, who recently dumped Anita because she was more "monster" than human, be relied on? Meanwhile, cop Dolph Storr, who's gone violently anti-preternatural, won't let Anita (now a federal marshal) help stop a series of gruesome murders. If this all seems complicated, it's nothing compared to Anita's sex life. There's plenty of the hot stuff, but it's presented with a certain morality and definite hilarity. After unraveling, to the detriment of writing and plot, some character and story line knots in previous bestseller Narcissus in Chains (2001), the author is back on track with the best Blake yet. (Apr.) Forecast: Backed by a coast-to-coast author tour, this is sure to hit bestseller lists-hard. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
