Book 22, Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Some zombies are raised. Others must be put down. Just ask Anita Blake.

Before now, she would have considered them merely off-putting, never dangerous. Before now, she had never heard of any of them causing human beings to perish in agony. But that’s all changed.

Micah’s estranged father lies dying, rotting away inside from some strange ailment that has his doctors whispering about “zombie disease.”

Anita makes her living off of zombies—but these aren’t the kind she knows so well. These creatures hunt in daylight, and are as fast and strong as vampires. If they bite you, you become just like them. And round and round it goes…

Where will it stop?

Even Anita Blake doesn’t know.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 12, 2013 – Anita Blake, vampire hunter, is back in this exciting and sexy installment of the bestselling paranormal series. Facing zombies is part of Blake's job description as a necromancer, but rarely does she deal with the flesh-eating kind made popular by Hollywood movies. All that changes when Blake accompanies her lover, Micah, to his father's potential deathbed in Colorado; there she faces a kind of zombie she's never seen before: they're fast, cunning, contagious, and hungry for humans. While it occasionally gets bogged down by dialogue, overall Hamilton's latest is a meticulously plotted story featuring fantastically creepy action mixed with flirtatious sex scenes, making it the perfectly addictive read. Her take on zombies is invigorating even for the purest of horror fans it's no wonder readers keep coming back for more. . Hamilton also manages to embed contemporary issues in with the fast-pace action,; addressing sexism, homophobia, religious fundamentalism, and racism from fresh and unusual perspectives.

I wouldn't read it

Sounds like a wannabe World War Z but this one is boring

Great

Finally some crime drama with the love drama!! Wonderful book can't wait for the next one!!!

Could have been better

I usually can't put a LKH book down on the first read, but this was a bit of a let down. LKH normally have me breaking night to find out what's going to happen next, this book - not so much. It felt more like wrapping up a loose edge than anything else.

I also missed Jason & some of the others. I've also been wondering when something will be done about Richard & his issues. All in all it didn't answer a lot of questions for me and left me kind of flat.

Maybe I'll find more nuances when I read it a second or third time.
