My public service announcement for the day is this:

If you read 'Anita Blake' books beyond this one, you've only got yourself to blame.

I've put a little effort into putting my finger on where this series went wrong. Somewhere along the line it went from being 'Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter' to 'Anita Blake: Supernatural Porn Star'. It was either this one or the next ('Burnt Offerings') where it all went penis-shaped.

Don't get me wrong. I like sex, and I also like porn.

However, when I buy a book about a vampire hunter... perhaps it was my fault. I expected "vampire hunter" to mean, 'someone who finds and (sometimes) kills vampires'. What Ms. Hamilton meant is, 'someone who finds vampires and then sucks their penises'. Mia culpa! It must have been me who misunderstood. Caveat emptor and all that jazz.

Anyhow, the first four 'Anita Blake' books were very good. Five and six were good. After that just put your favourite porn in the VCR and save yourself the effort of reading the following fourteen books in this series.
