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

At this point, each book in the series contains less and less of a plot and more and more sex / relationship drivel.
Wasn't the book before this one based on the main character missing her period?
It's too bad. The author could have gone the Glenn Cook route and turned her protagonist into a dark god (remember Croaker and the Black Company?).
I wouldn't read it
Sounds like a wannabe World War Z but this one is boring
Why do I keep reading this series?
It's like I should just send LKH 14.99 and avoid a huge waste of time. Usually these books and others like take only a day or two to finish (with all life' distractions) but this took me weeks because I didn't want to read about Anita and her threesome quandary. The first 1/3 of book is about her meeting Micah's family while holding his and Nathaniel's hand. So, they all love one another - but it turns out theirs isn't the only threesome. What is this? LKH justifications for polyamory? Well, that's the first 1/3, then you have to slog through her perspective of what cops think of her banging so many dudes (and a chick, which you know, confuses Anita now even though her dudes are doing each other)
Zombies were great but another 1/3 of this book is Anita describing all these cops, were , vampire, humans to the point of it being poor writing, poor repeat descriptions, and not even interesting language.
Other 1/3 is like, wow, who will marry?
It was so easy to just flip through then sex scenes seeking some action.
Edward is at least in it, but wow, I enjoy vampire/urban fantasy series but Cat&Bones & Black Dagger show improvements as series went on & more interesting and better written. First 6 Anita books were fun. So why have I read all, what, 21 of them? Be done with it already! Even Charlaine H. figured that it is best to just end it!
I just don't think Anita books are worth buying and I will be borrowing from library while in between my other series books - but seriously, it's time for some old school fantasy after this POS.
two stars for the zombie vampires which still aren't a new convention in her world.
