3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting., 17 Sep 2007
This review is from: Bloody Bones: An Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter Novel (Paperback)
This is the 5th story in a series of murder mysteries set in America and works on the premiss that vampirism has been made legal after vampires have been given rights under the US constitution.

Anita Blake, the heroine of these book, is a bounty hunter, executioner (she's paid by the state to kill vampires who are sentenced to death) and zombie raiser (oh yes, these exist too). She doesn't entirely trust them, but given the way the world presents them, can you blame her?

In this book she's approached to raise a boat load of zombies, which naturally gets her suspicions up (who really needs that many zombies?), and she sets off to investigate.

All in all it sounds like an interesting premiss doesn't it? It's clever, I must admit, but as the series has progressed I've started to notice more and more sex (and less and less of a murder mystery) in the books. Don't get me wrong, I'm no prude, but it's the sex, not the story that I'm noticing more and more.

All the guys in the books now have taught this, 6 pack that and tight the other and there seems to be ever increasing amounts of sex in the series. I have issues with any book in which people (of either sex) are primarily described through their "primary sexual characteristics" (which is a phrase I thought I'd never say in a book) and so won't be reading any more of these books.
