Bloody Bones: Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Book 5

When Branson, Missouri, is hit with a death wave - four unsolved murders - it doesn't take an expert to realize that all is not well.

And she's got an "in" with the creature that can make sense of the slayings - the sexy master vampire known as Jean-Claude.

When Branson, Missouri, is hit with a death wave - four unsolved murders - it doesn't take an expert to realize that all is not well. But luckily for the locals, Anita Blake is an expert in the kinds of preternatural goings-on that have everyone spooked. And she's got an "in" with the creature that can make sense of the slayings - the sexy master vampire known as Jean-Claude.

Love in vein: listen to more tales of Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter.

What the Critics Say

"When Anita Blake's boss at Animators, Inc., informs her that she's expected to raise 300-year-old zombies from a field of jumbled bones just to settle a land dispute, she's understandably annoyed. But as soon as she arrives in Branson, Missouri, to do the deed, the job gets more interesting. A psychotic sword-wielding vampire starts committing multiple murders in the area, and Anita must call on Jean-Claude, her powerful fanged suitor, for help. As always, Anita prevails over the undead, keeping Jean-Claude at arm's length, clearing the cemetery land of an ancient enchantment, and nailing the vampiric killer in one fell swoop." (Amazon.com review)

    "Blame the rating on Audible"
    Any additional comments?

    First let me say, I loved this book and this narrator. Unfortunately I HATE the narrator they replaced Kimberly Alexis with in the more recent releases. Audible in it's infinite wisdom will not set up a way for me to get those books out of my "recommendations based on previous ratings". Because I rated the early books so highly they feel that they HAVE to recommend the later books in the series based on those ratings. I've emailed Audible asking for a fix for this and got no response. At this point I don't think there is one book in my recommendations that I haven't already read/purchased someplace else or that I cannot stand the new narrators. So in order to get some new recommendations had to go back and trash a whole bunch of books that I love. This truly sucks and is something I did NOT want to do. I'm blaming this on Audible.

    "Couldn't stop listening"
    If you could sum up Bloody Bones in three words, what would they be?

    This is another one of the great Vampire Books out there by Laurel Hamilton. I couldn't stop listening to it but couldn't do it all at one time. A must read.


    What does Kimberly Alexis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The depth of each person in the book. Kimberly gave it that extra punch.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and yes and yes and yes!!
