9780425218846: Burnt Offerings (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter)

'You can't trust anyone who sleeps with the monsters.'

That's what I've always said. That's what I've always believed. But now I'm the one sharing a bed with the Master Vampire of the City.

I'm Anita Blake, the woman the vampires call the Executioner. From part of the solution, I've become part of the problem. So it hits close to home when an arsonist begins to target vampire-owned businesses all over town - an arsonist who seems to want to destroy more than just property.

It's the monsters who are in danger now. And it's up to the Executioner to save them from the inferno.

Review:

When the vampire Master of St Louis starts an affair with the city's most notorious necromancer and executioner of vampires, it was bound to cause comment.

Anita Blake finds out, in Burnt Offerings, that there is something even her lover Jean-Claude fears--and that is the Council, the body of old and magically powerful vampires who decide policy and can condemn those who question their authority to a lingering undeath of supernatural torture. Among their servants is Jean-Claude's ex Asher, who blames him for his disfigurement at the hands of the Inquisition and for the death of the woman they both loved--and Asher has a perfect vengeance in mind.

As Laurel K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series proceeds, Anita becomes ever more powerful in her magics and her capacity to control supernatural entities; she also becomes ever more sexually magnetic, and the books more erotic, as she learns to cope with life as boss of a pack of were-leopards with a taste for SM and snuggling. And as the books proceed, the stakes get higher and higher--Laurell K. Hamilton does a nice line in sheer terror, whether fear of decay or fear of the preternaturally hot fire a pyrokineticist can throw at those who offend him. --Roz Kaveney

Review:

Death and gore galore ... Hamilton writes with ease and vigour..." SHIVERS ('I was enthralled - a departure from the usual type of vampire tale which will have a wide appeal to any reader hunting for both chills and fun')

ANDRE NORTON ('This fast-paced, tough-edged supernatural thriller is mesmerizing reading indeed')

LOCUS ('Supernatural bad guys beware, night-prowling Anita Blake is savvy, sassy and tough')
