Ever since being stuck with the job of pythia, the chief seer of the supernatural world, Cassie Palmer has been playing catch up. Catch up to the lifetime's worth of training she missed being raised by a psychotic vampire instead of at the fabled pythian court. Catch up to the powerful, and sometimes seductive, forces trying to mold her to their will. It's been a trial by fire that has left her more than a little burned. But now she realizes that all that was just the warm up for the real race.

I can’t stand this narrator. I’m sure he book is good. All the rest were, but this narrator has a strange accent and pronounces words in a way that’s makes me cringe. I gave up. I wish publishers would realize how much a bad narrator can destroy a great novel. I’m done. Can’t listen anymore

There are a lot of monsters in Anita Blake's life. And some of them are human. One such individual is the man she calls Edward, a bounty hunter who specializes in the preternatural. He calls her to help him hunt down the greatest evil she has ever encountered - something that kills and maims and vanishes into the night. Something Anita will have to face alone.

Great Book. Not so great production.

I am in the process of re-listening to all of the Anita Blake books. I think all these books are great. However, Cynthia Holloway is the MUCH better narrator. The sound effects in books 1-9 are distracting and really get on my nerves.
