The zombie-raising business gets slow in December, so Anita Blake is starting to see some oddball cases. She's got a neatly typed list of eight missing lycanthropes given to her by Marcus, the leader of the local werewolf pack, who wants her to find them. The trouble is, Anita's occasionally furry boyfriend Richard is locked in a power struggle with Marcus. Jean-Claude, master vampire of the city and Anita's other love interest, is getting jealous as well. To top it off, Anita has to solve some horrific murders and keep her bounty-hunting friend Edward from killing Richard and Jean-Claude. Hamilton alternates between funny and fearsome in this larky series about a monster hunter with a few dark secrets. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This was the best Anita Blake book so far. I loved the tension between her, Jean-Claude and Richard. I guess this love triangle is one of the main things that made me love this book. Surely now everyone started to take sides - all the "team vamp" v.s. "team were" typical sh*t but aaah, I trust Hamilton to avoid reaching corny levels from this point of view.
Also I must say that the story was captivating, even though I wasn't so eager about it in the beginning. It managed to capture my attention and make me love every minute of reading the book.
