Series: Anita Blake #1
Genre: Adult, Vampires, Urban Fantasy
Anita Blake may be small and young, but vampires call her the Executioner. Anita is a necromancer and vampire hunter in a time when vampires are protected by law – as long as they don’t get too nasty. Now someone’s killing innocent vampires and Anita agrees – with a bit of vampire arm-twisting – to help figure out who and why.
Trust is a luxury Anita can’t afford when her allies aren’t human. The city’s most powerful vampire, Nikolaos, is 1,000 years old and looks like a 10-year old girl. The second most powerful vampire, Jean-Claude, is interested in more than just Anita’s professional talents, but the feisty necromancer isn’t playing along – yet. This popular series has a wild energy and humor, and some very appealing characters – both dead and alive.
My initial thought after reading ‘Holy Crap! How have I not read this until just now?!’
I read Guilty Pleasures this weekend after it was practically shoved into my hands by a friend. Well really she wanted to try to persuade me into coming to a book club this week...It worked…I will be going for sure! I ended up loving this book and almost succeeded in reading it all the same day she gave it to me. There's so much action and mystery and I just could not put it down. Only a few hours after finishing it I had the next three in the series in my hand. Now I just need to finish the two other books I started and then snubbed to read this one :-P
Overall Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
