Okay, so some of the girls asked that I do a review of the Anita Blake series because I mentioned some things that intrigued them.
It's not a finished series and usually I would reserve judgment on a series until it comes to its conclusion just in case the author was going somewhere I wasn't expec...

(This is a massive pan. Just a heads-up.)
I've finally given up on this series, though I'm embarrassed to say it took me about ten books to get there.
This is another of those books where I loved the premise, but the execution made me gag. Anita is insufferable, self-centered and judgmental, and h...

Anita Blake is a vampire hunter/slayer among other dealings with the undead/occult and she's only in her early twenties. Story is told in a first person P.I. style which means there's some wry humor as well as a focus totally from the main character's POV.
(1) Fast read;
(2) Vampires are sim...

That was... something. Right, I guess it was ok.
How did vampires become common knowledge? I understand they became legal 2 years prior to the action in the book, but why? How?
And who is Anita Blake? I could not connect with her at all. She felt shallow... No, not shallow. I really can't find the...

This book. I loved it the first few times I read it. And then. Not so much. I blame reading Fever right before. Also. There was something. I could not quite put my finger on. At first. What was it? The writing style. Everything was fragmented sentences. And strangely formal speech. Instead of I’m...

I finally got around to reading Guilty Pleasures, the first Anita Blake book, and can at least see why they're not in the Romance section: it's gory and the author doesn't seem to like vampires at all.
I know Hamilton's very well established and has a huge fan base, and I know there are lots of ot...

Reread. Back in the day, when Anita wasn't a power hungry, nympho :(
This book reminds how great the Anita Blake series once was. Here Anita Blake has a job as an animator (raising the dead for information for the police force) and isn't spending any of her time lazing in bed with her posse of wim...

The engaging start of a wonderful series that morphs into erotica partway through.
If you like V.I Warshawski, Kinsey Milhone,and other female gumshoes, and you like some fantasy, you will definitely like this series in the beginning. Normal world, normal woman, except that vampires (and other su...

It was ok, I guess.
Before Kate Daniels it was Anita Blake. However, it is one of those rare instances where the copy cat is much better than the original. Anita is a raiser of the undead and killer of vampires. She is coerced to help a powerful vampire queen and to investigate the murder of seve...

All of Ms. Hamilton's books have erotic undertones, but this is toward the beginning of the series, before those undertones turned into overtones, sidewaystones, diagonaltones, and all those other tones that we can't discuss in polite society. At this point and through book six or seven, you can...
