Here's a job to strain even Anita Blake's capabilities: raising an entire graveyard of 200-year-old corpses.
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.

"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)
Anita keeps on kicking butt..... and grows in her powers, new men in her life seem to complcate her life more than she does... start with book 1...

When it comes to the "Anita Blake-Vampire Hunter" series of books by Laurell K. Hamilton, follow this simple rule: THE FIRST NINE BOOKS ARE PURE GOLD IN BOTH NARRATION AND STORY. ALL THE REST ARE ABSOLUTE GARBAGE, FILLED WITH VERY POORLY WRITTEN PORNOGRAPHY AND LOTS OF IT. ANITA BECOMES A WHORE BASICALLY , NEEDING TO HAVE SEX WITH MANY MEN, MANY TIMES PER DAY.
Laurell K. Hamilton completely destroys a great cast of characters, by using her own life sexual experimentations as a template for all the books after 9 or 10.
I AM THE DUMB A_ _ WHO PURCHASED THE REST OF THE BOOKS TO SEE IF THEY WOULD GET BETTER.....................THEY DON'T.
Bloody bones is my favorite Anita Blake book because it incorporates both her personal life and professional life. Some of the later books I feel have been too focused on her personal life and have been greatly lacking in The mystery aspect of her professional life. The best part about Anita Blake is that you get a great "who-dun-it"as well as an awesome sexy romantic supernatural story. Bloody Bones provides both of those, it's a great edge of your seat thriller with the mystery wrapped in. Then you get the really erotic sexiness of her desire and the hesitation she has about crossing over into the monster's world.
Yes. I enjoy this series and this book. The characters are intriguing and the adventure makes a great story.
Ms. Alexis does a wonderful job! She is one of my most favorite story tellers!
good story, lots of action
ending was excellent but the whole book was suspenseful and enjoyable.
Yes I have listened to several and this was just as good.
Love the Anita Blake books, really enjoy Kimberly Alexis
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.
The depth of each person in the book. Kimberly gave it that extra punch.
Yes and yes and yes and yes!!
I am an avid audio book listener. I have over 340 in my library and re-listen to them until I know my favorites by heart.
I have listened to this book 4 times now. each time is a treat. I love how Anita grows into herself with each book. Kimberly Alexis is the best narrator in the series.
For those readers seeking a listen that you can't turn off, this is the book! When this book hit its climax, I was not able to do anything but listen. It was 03:00 am when it finished and with work the next day, I regretted nothing. Hamilton truly knows how to build her plots with the most interesting twists and turns that the reader be era sees coming. Somehow she is able to make a trigger happy action and almost death seeking character seem real and despite her faults, you come to see her as a true heroine. Thank you again Hamilton, you are a "master" yourself!!!
