5.0 out of 5 stars This book takes a bite out of the vampire genre!, 7 Dec 1996
By A Customer
This review is from: Bloody Bones (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter) (Mass Market Paperback)
This book blew me away. It was a different type story than the usual vampire series. When the cover of the books states "Anita Blake-Vampire Hunter", you can't help being interested. Anita Blake is a self=assured monster hunter in a short skirt who carries an aresenal around with her at all times. She also happens to date both a vampire and a werewolf in her spare time. In this book, there seems to be two separate stories that meld into one. First she is asked to animate the dead to settle a land dispute in Branson, Missouri. While doing so, she is called into a police investigation of the slaughter deaths of three teenage boys. Then another death of a teenage girl in her home-drained of blood. Along the way with the help of another animator co-worker and her vampire boyfriend, Anita works to solve the mystery of Bloody Bones. I truly enjoyed this book, even though a first-person commentary is not usually my style, in this book it really works. Anita Blake has a biting persona that makes for a fun read whether you are into monster stories or not. Remeber this is not the first book in the Anita Blake series. I happened to read them in a backwards order, but it did not take away from my enjoyment.
