“Somewhere out there, by tomorrow, someone would have my name on a to-do list. Pick up dry cleaning, buy groceries, kill Anita Blake.”
The arrival of a weirdly decomposing vampire, Sabin, sparks a new adventure for necromancer and vampire executioner, Anita Blake. Finally, hallelujah, Anita gives in to her baser urges and the sixth novel (yep it took six novels to get there) moves from the realms of Twilight style abstinence and longing, into something more in keeping with its adult audience.
The complicated love triangle is transformed into a triumvirate that unleashes greater powers than any of the three could have previously predicted. Anita faces some particularly challenging circumstances including a horrific encounter with Gabrielle and the prospect of succumbing to a professional hit. A generous serve of sex, violence, drama and action peppers the pages of this easy to devour read. 5 out of 5.
