Hit List

A Quick Plot Run Through..........

To local law enforcement there is a serial killer on the loose.  Not to Anita Blake and fellow US Marshal Ted Forrester AKA Edward.  They know it is the Harlequin, a secrete Vampire Force over a thousand years old.  Just saying their name is a death sentence.  Especially since they are not working alone the Mother of All Darkness is pulling their strings. Mommy Dearest only wants one thing, to take over Anita's body killing all that are in her path.  It's up to Anita and Edward to figure out how to catch they-who-can-not-be-named and destroy The Mother of All Darkness once and for all. 

My Thoughts........

I love love love Anita Blake!  This was in my opinion one of the best books in the Series.  Anytime Edward is on the scene you are guaranteed a great book.  Anita is growing into herself and it has been so cool to ride through all the changes with her.  She had alot to deal with this time around Mommy Dearest, Pig headed Federal Marshall's, a psycho that wants to love her up in that bloody sort of way, feeding the ardeur, and just being away from home.  This book was kick ass from the first page to the last.  The only disappointment was knowing I have to wait a while to drink the next one down!

Smooches to Laurell K Hamilton!  This is why she is a #1 NY Times bestselling author!

  1. I'm an official card carrying LK devotee - I bought Hit List day one and paid top $ which is saying something, as I'm a cheep ass bastard with a library card and I'm not afraid to use it! I enjoyed the book, but I must say, it felt rushed and it was missing a lot of stuff in a lot of places. Is she scared of going big on the page count? What gives? Where was the discriptives when she went starry eyed at the end ( I'm trying not to be a spoiler) - I mean - what the hell! You got to put some info in - the boy's back home (who were strangely absent) had to feel that kinda juice coming at them, but not worth the word count apparently. I'm still in - but I'll be much happier when she spits out another Mary Gentry book - Laruel K's Fae series. On my Anita Blake scale - it was a 5.5 out of 10 - weak.
