I love these books. Beware, moms- as they progress they borderline on porn and are definitely kinky. I do not recommend these books for anyone who has not already experienced a healthy and normal sex life ie: no kids or inexperienced teens. I read the entire series and can not wait for Danse Macabre.

After reading the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer, my sister-in-law and I began an eager search for another series that would captivate us as Twilight had. When looking for comparable series we came across this Anita Blake series, thinking that vampires were definately a great story thread and that it being an adult book unlike the Twilight teen theme, we would be guarenteed a good steamy sex scene or two. The book obviously made good on the vampire promise, but the writing style is so poor and inept that I cannot read past the second book. The stories are flat out disgusting. No sex mind you, sure some steamy dialogue but no sex as of yet that would at least have made it worth getting through. Also, if you think the description of a were-rat (human that changes into a human-sized rat at night) rubbing himself and threatening rape is a seductive, then be my guest. The descriptions of corpses and murders are very vivid, but the writing style is something well beneath even Nora Roberts. Vivid descriptions of child victims are also another special little treat that Laurel Hamilton feels compelled to delve into in the second book. Too gross for my taste. These books are also so short that by the time the ending action scene happens, it lasts all of three pages. An unbelieveable let down after reading something like Twilight. Can not believe that B&N gives it almost 5 stars and charges seven bucks a book, definately not worth it!

anta blake is a strong character with paranormal talent. helps police with paranormal crime and is drawn into the paranormal world. many "vampire books" are sappy romance this is not one of those. these books are smart, funny and you want to read more and more.

The Anita Blake series are thrilling, captivating, and completely addicting. After the first book I was hooked! They keep getting better and better. As the books progress, there are some extremely steamy sex scenes, and the descriptions of crime scenes Anita investigates may be too gritty and gruesome for some. I assume thats why there are a few reviews on here that are anything but complementary. Don't let any bad reviews scare you away from these book! If you love danger, mystery, seduction, action and an all around entertaining novel, read these! Laurell is one of my all time favorite writers. Her writing style is extremely descriptive, you feel as if you are there. I can't wait for the next book! Try these, you will love them!

I haven't had much time to pick up a book between kids and work. After i started reading the series, i was unable to put the books down. I spent my lunch and my bath reading, and kept reading after putting the kids to bed. Laurel is an outstanding writer. I will recomend this series to everyone I can. I am looking forward to reading more from Laurel K. Hamilton.

anita blake novels are the best there is , nothing even comes close to compareing, its mystery, action romance, and everything else you could want in a fiction book, i love the charachters, it kicks twilights ass. all though dont get me wrong those are good books for teenagers, grown ups read anita blake. i got hooked when i read obsidian butterfly first it was given to me by a co worker that had an extra one, i couldnt put it down and ended up purchasing guilty pleasures first than the rest of the collection. and than read them in order, i have read every one of them except flirt and bullet, 3 times in order i love the series and cant wait to read the last 2 in which i had to order flirt because it was sold out. laurel k hamilton should be highly praised .

Laurell Hamilton books are the best way relax after a long day at work. Its like a vacation that you never have to leave home for. You will love Hamiltons heroine Anita Blake, a sharp tounged necromancer who kicks serious vampire butt! While the plot line is surrealtic and fantastic, the heroine is easily identified with. I was cheering her on every step of the way! It's easy to love this original series. You'll never think of zombies the same way again! Its impossible to find a better cast anywhere...From the winsome werewolf to the sexy vampire Jean-Claude, Anita Blake vampire hunter is an escapists dream!!!The series just gets better and better with each new book, grab yourself a penguin and settle in because once you start you wont be able to stop!!!!

I didn't read the set but gave it as a gift for my teen daughter and she just LOVED it.

The first three books were the same story retold over and over again. The lead femal character anita comes off as uppity at first but by the time you get into book three you start to understand her better. Book four is the best book out of the first four by far. The characters finally get personalities and new and different things start to happen. I really liked the concept of all the books. I like how the vampires all have different powers and how there are tons of different were animals. I also like how the master vampires arent stronger than some of the Master Were animals. All and all this is a good read and I will read the rest of the series.

After reading these books I am hooked on this series. I want to find out how Anita's relationships grows with Jean-Claude and Richard. The books are very entertaining.
