Anita Blake kicks butt! This is my second Anita Blake novel. I was loosing interest in the middle because the book wasn't quite going the direction I wanted it to go... (I wanted to see more interaction with Jean-Claude, I'm curious where that is going) but I stuck with it and loved the ending! I wanted to go out and buy the third book! (Most likely because I want to know where her relationship with Jean-Claude is going :) For those who haven't read them, Jean-Claude is the "Hot Vampire" character... Anyway, great book!
