Synopsis

“You can’t trust anyone who sleeps with the monsters.”

That’s what I’ve always said. That’s what I’ve always believed. But now I’m the one sharing a bed with the Master Vampire of the City. Me, Anita Blake. The woman the vampires call the Executioner. From part of the solution, I’ve become part of the problem. So it hits close to home when an arsonist begins to target vampire-owned businesses all over town — an arsonist who seems to want to destroy more than just property.

Anita Blake may be small and young, but vampires call her the Executioner. Anita is a necromancer and vampire hunter in a time when vampires are protected by law—as long as they don’t get too nasty. Now someone’s killing innocent vampires and Anita agrees—with a bit of vampiric arm-twisting—to help figure out who and why.

Anita Blake Book Challenge

Hello Lovelies!

So, because I am completely crazy and I like to pretend that I don’t already have enough to do, I have decided to complete an Anita Blake Book Challenge! The challenge involves re-reading and reviewing all of the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter books before the release of the next book in the series, Dead Ice, on the 9th of June. It’s an ambitious goal because I only have 45 days to re-read and review 28 books. This includes all Anita-related short stories, novellas, and full-length novels. The Release Date Countdown will help you keep track of how long I have left until the release date of Dead Ice.

Wish me luck!
