When a 15-year-old girl is abducted by vampires, it’s up to U.S. Marshal Anita Blake to find her. And when she does, she’s faced with something she’s never seen before: a terrifyingly ordinary group of people - kids, grandparents, soccer moms - all recently turned and willing to die to avoid serving a master. And where there’s one martyr, there will be more.…
But even vampires have monsters that they’re afraid of. And Anita is one of them.…

Near the top. I NEVER buy an audiobook that I'm no pretty sure I'm going to love, so I have a lot of them kind of clumped together at the top of the list.
The action. The sex is fine, but this one has action like the early books and I really like that.
Anita at dinner/lunch with the new marshall.
Just a couple of "fist punches" when the good guys took out the bad guys successfully.
I am really glad to see Hamilton back writing more action and less sex. The sex is fine, but it can get tiresome after so many pages. This is much better. Also, she seems to be, finally, handling Asher. I get tired of his whiny boy.
An avid audible book listener!
The series started out as very entertaining and then deviated... with the idea of plot becoming meaningless in the story. This book gets back on track and gives the reader a great story while still being very entertaining.
Kiss the Dead is more like the first four books in the series. It shows the relationship development's results that started in the first part of the series. It's kind of like when you wonder what might have happened to the characters after a series ended.
The voices used by the narrator bring the book to life. You get a feel for Jean Claude and just know that Asher is pouty and childish sometimes.
While the length of the book makes it hard to listen to in one sitting, I managed to listen to it over a 3 day period. Definitely entertaining!
This lastest iteration of the Anita series shows an Anita whose developing into something interesting and more level headed. She is once again facing tough choices of a different sort. It has me wondering what Ms. Hamilton has up her sleeve for the next book. What direction will she take Blake? So far, with 21 books in the series, I find that I am just as excited about the next book as I was with the first. I'm torn between hoping that there will be another Merry book released this year and wanting another Anita book already. I hope everyone will look at this book as a reset of a sorts. It make sense at this point. It certainly sets the stage for more character development for certain newcommers in the series. Only time will tell. I don't want to ruin it for you. So go on and let Ms Alexis tell you all about it. :-)
My favorite character portrayed by Kimberly Alexis in book 21 is the new marshall in town.
. The main story line of this book was very interesting, and I do Love the sex It needed to happen (like between her and Nicky) to further the story and add new information about the arduer and being a ???Bride.??? Need more Info. Story to short. =============Needs More -=============== Hope the next story tells use if Richard Has continued to grow and how is Jason and where is to rat King. How is Edward and this family. BOOK Not long enough since I hate for the book to end.
