Sum It Up!
So, fans who have put the series down, I think it may be time to pick it back up.



When a fifteen-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… (Goodreads)
Fans that have been missing Anita's main squeezes, Jean-Claude, Asher, Micah, Nathaniel and her youngest of the crew Sin, will be very pleased with this installment. And have no fear of Anita picking up any more strays this time around.
A group of vampires is looking to be freed of having to have a master. Good idea right? After all, everyone deserves freedom, especially if they were turned as sweet, innocent children or nice, lovely old grandmas. Wrong. Vampires are not just human; they are beings with extra strength, speed, mystical powers and crave the taste of blood. If they have no one to answer to, all hell can and will break loose. Who better to call than the monster all of the other monsters are afraid of, Anita Blake. Blake will stop these vampires literally dead in their tracks, and when they threaten those she loves, they just may beg her for that death.
On a more personal level, Asher may have just gone too far. While both Anita and Jean-Claude have put up with countless temper tantrums from their beautiful scarred golden-boy they are just about fed up. Asher may cross that very thin line he has drawn for himself centuries ago, and there may be no turning back.
The only thing stopping this book from getting a complete 5 Hoots is that there is still just a tad too much porn. The storyline is fantastic, almost, but not quite up there with the great books from the beginning. Horror fans of both genders were truly in love with this series' then, now.... While I am a true loyal fan to the end, some don't like the whole porn angle the book has taken. That being said, this is still a good read. So, fans who have put the series down, I think it may be time to pick it back up. While it’s still not completely back to the original, it is stepping back into that direction with these last two installments.
