Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Anne Liebst
Anita Blake is the woman that the vampires call the "Executioner." She is part policewoman, part protector, and part monster. Can she be everything to everybody in a city where vampires, werewolves, and wereleopards roam freely about? Once again, Anita Blake's adventures take her into a world with strange characters, ancient spells, vampires, and the supernatural. Anita is her same old feisty self, ever determined to not let anyone-dead or alive-get the best of her. Sixth in the popular Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series, this title is missing the wonderful blend of romance, horror, and mystery that is present in the other novels. Burnt Offerings' mixture of genres does not congeal well. Horror abounds in this fast-paced novel; as the city burns around her, Anita must try to stop the torture and rape the Vampire Council inflicts upon her and her friends. Too much happens, making the novel hard to follow, and too many characters seeking revenge on what seems to be everyone makes the novel preternatural. A little less violence and revenge and more romance involving Anita, Jean-Claude, and ex-boyfriend Richard would have made this a much better read. VOYA Codes: 2Q 2P S (Better editing or work by the author might have warranted a 3Q, For the YA with a special interest in the subject, Senior High-defined as grades 10 to 12).
Library Journal
While a pyrokinetic arsonist targets the havens of St. Louis's legal vampire population, Anita Blake--the local expert on supernatural creatures--finds herself embroiled in a dangerous and deadly game of undead politics in defense of her lover, the city's Master Vampire. The sixth installment of Hamilton's popular "Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter" series exposes the more vulnerable side of its tough-talking, hard-as-nails heroine. Filled with nonstop action, witty dialog, and steamy sex, this title will appeal to fans of Anne Rice and Tanya Huff.

I have to thank a stranger for introducing me to this amazing author's books. I was actually at a Barnes an Noble looking for another author in the Sci-Fi section several years ago. The lady (who was a customer herself) asked me what I was looking for and I told her and she said that if I liked that author to try Laurell K Hamilton. I bought the first book, read it in one day, called into work sick, bought the other 8 that were out at the time, and I've been hooked ever since. I resently just convinced my boyfriend to read the first book and he is addicted also. So GENTLEMEN, this series can be enjoyed by you also, it is not just for women! So, thank you awesome stranger for introducing me to one of my favorite authors!

I have tried to get into this series, but I have a hard time not becoming annoyed with Anita and her negative sarcasm. It really is difficult to follow her descriptions of the magical events. I was not impressed with the uncomfortable violent sexual acts and crimes in this book.

After a while, the dialog and plots all sound the same. Despite that, I absolutely love the progression of these characters through every book, and have a hard time putting them down. Some of my favorite characters of all time, and the right balance of paranormal and passion, make this a great series! If you enjoy Anita Blake, I bet you will also love Riley Jensen in "Full Moon Rising" by Keri Arthur!
