Anita Blake, U.S. Marshall, vampire slayer and necromancer, recently became engaged to her longtime love, vampire king Jean-Claude, one beloved among many. To say she's out of her element planning the wedding of the century, picking out wedding rings, and planning her nuptials is an understatement and it's just adding to her ever-growing preternatural to-do list. Then the FBI comes looking for her help putting a stop to a vicious zombie porn ring that's very troubling because after viewing evidence she sees a particular evil animator parlor trick the perpetrators use that has the trademark of one of her deadliest but very dead enemies.
VERDICT Number 1 New York Times best seller Hamilton (Jason; Affliction; A Shiver of Light) is still thrilling fans with #24 in the Anita Blake series with her amazing multifaceted characters and intricate multilayered world, a mix of erotic romance, crime-drama, and paranormal/fantasy fiction. Her descriptive prose is gritty and raw, with a mosaic of humor and horror to tell this complex, well-detailed story. But it's her enigmatic stable of stars that continue to shine, managing their improbable interpersonal relationship dynamics.
