    In The Killing Dance, vampire hunter Anita Blake finds herself the victim when a $500,000 price is put on her head, and the two men in her life-a vampire and a werewolf-aren't helping the situation.

    "Sound Effects?"
    Overall

    I really like this book. It's one of my favorite in the series and I had an extra credit so I thought I'd listen to it. The narrator isn't bad. She does Jean Claude in a good French accent, which surprised me. I did NOT like the sound effects. They took away from the dialog and made me think of B-movie suspense moments and bad porno music. It doesn't ruin it, but i was glad I read the book before I listened to it.

    St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school - it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's - the very place where they're most in danger.

    Mitch says: "The Weakest Installment in a Fantastic Series"
    "Interesting Narration"
    Overall

    When reading a review of an audiobook, I really want to know what people thought of the narrator. A bad narrator can ruin a good book... Stephanie Wolf is okay on the whole. I found her portrayal of Lissa's voice very annoying (high pitched and whiny), but her Russian accent for Dimitri was really good. A separate note: I really like this series. I highly recommend it along with Mead's two other series (for adults).

    As consultant to the Regional Preternatural Crime Investigation Unit, Anita's called in on what appears to be a case involving a serial killer - a vampire serial killer - who may be preying on strippers. She's sure that none of the local vamps are responsible - but her judgment may be clouded by a conflict of interest.

    Overall

    This book is the first book in the series that has too much sex. I really like the series as a whole. I like the depth/detail in Laurrell K's writing and I like the world she has created complete with its characters and powers and politics. If you haven't read/listened to the books earlier in the series, you wont understand half of what is going on here or get an appreciation of the characters, so dont bother. Truly this book has very little plot and is more about setting up relationships and the power structure of the main characters. This book and the next couple after it all have quite a bit of sex, but the series balances out after that. If you like the genre, I'd highly recommend the series FROM THE BEGINNING. The narrator, Cynthia Holloway is quite good. Better than the one who did a couple of the earlier books.
