I forced myself to listen to the whole book but I still don't understand what all the hype is about. There is absolutely nothing new here - it is highly derivative of many other older novels (admittedly combined in a somewhat new way). I found myself predicting pretty close to exactly how scenes were going to play out long before they occurred.
In summary, it's not bad but there's nothing here to justify the hype.
The early Anita Blake books are great (the later ones are sadly nothing but porn).
However, this audiobook is one of the worst I've listened to from Audible. There are highly annoying music/sound effects (more like noise) randomly placed behind the narration. The narrator's accents change for the same character throughout the book (sometimes subtly and sometimes egregiously (ex Ronnie starts out with a thick brogue-ish accent (wrong for the character) and later loses it)).
