I loved Ms. Hamilton's Merry Gentry Series. Anita Blake is her newest and on going series. At the moment it's 25 books long so I started with book one, Guilty Pleasures. We meet Anita, animator of the dead. Vampire killer. General badass. She's thrust in the middle of a vampire serial killer mystery and is forced to help by Master Vampire of the City. There we meet Jean-Claude. The only vampire she's ever been attracted too.
This was not a sweet romance. It was raw, gritty, action packed. I liked it a lot. Poor Anita is always stuck at the disadvantage. She's witty, sarcastic and can kiss ass when she has too. I loved her. The book could have used some romance. There was plenty of plot and action.
I recommend beginning this series with Guilty Pleasures. It's the first chance to meet the lead character. I can't wait to start the next book which I already ordered - The Laughing Corpse.
