i love this series, but i've been reading it out of order. the last books have been first. so this is the very first anita blake book, and its weird reading it. for one thing, i never knew she has been only in her 20s this whole time, i had pictured her older. also, she was much more a prude and prejudiced at the beginning. earlier books arent as good as the later ones, but if you start here at the proper place, im sure you'll love it.
As a kick off for a long series, this book caught my attention and I had the read the next three right away. The villian is great sweet and cute makes the best evil. Anita's life is very fast-paced good for the reader, so I imagine all she does is sleep between books.
i always loved these books and now that i cant read as much listening to them is way more enjoyable. I listen to alot of books and these are the only ones that put in the music and the gunfire that help bring it to life so well.
