Vampire hunter Anita Blake leaps into uncharted territory in the all-new novella from #1 New York Times bestselling author Laurell K. Hamilton.

For most people, summer barbecues are nothing to be afraid of. But Anita isn’t exactly plain vanilla—and neither is her love life. So it takes a special kind of courage to attend a barbecue thrown by her friend Sergeant Zerbrowski. Walking into a backyard full of cops and their families with wereleopards Micah and Nathaniel both looking gorgeous on her arm won’t be easy, even with almost-four-year-old Matthew Vespucci to break the ice…

Anita is determined to have a good time with her family, just like everyone else. But it doesn’t take long for tensions to rise among the adults and kids. And Anita will learn that gossip and innuendo can be just as dangerous as anything the undead can throw at her…

It is sad when the description on the back of the book is the best part of the entire novel. I sat down and gritted my way through a chapter of Laurel Hamilton's attempt at writing just to find myself undoubtedly annoyed. If you're stronger than me and able to ignore someone's writing style, her storyline is absolutely amazing, and something you might enjoy.

If you decide to read these books, read them till/and the "Obsidian Butterfly". After that, the whole thing goes straight to hell. The heroes act completely out of character, the story becomes non-existent and the series becomes an extremely bad written erotica.

This story has more depth of character than most people ever even dream about, if they could get over their own prudishness and see it they would be all the better for it.

In both the Anita Blake series and the Merry Gentry series, the first two novels are alright. After that, it's nothing but sex, more sex, and more sex (with some mild rape).

This is the most up to date of the books. I found the further Anita goes the more powerful and less human she get!! This is not necessarily a good thing. It feels like it dragging for the sake of it now. i'll have to think about this one!!
