First time in trade paperback: the fourth novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

Vampire hunter and zombie animator Anita Blake is an expert at sniffing out the bad from the good. But in The Lunatic Cafe-now in trade paperback for the first time-she's about to learn that nothing is ever as it seems, especially in matters of the not-so-human heart.

Dating a werewolf with self-esteem issues is stressing Anita out. Especially when something-or someone-starts taking out the city's shapeshifters.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Even though I guessed the villian as soon as we met, I still enjoyed reading the betrayl and other twists. Edward is great as always. The relatioships between Anita's men keeps growing, but it would be nice to see her throw in someone normal, just for perspective.

While I don't consider these books to be literary genius by any means, I find myself strangely addicted to this series. I am constantly annoyed at the heroine's abrasiveness and complete lack of tact and yet, can't wait to find out what she's going to do next. Plus, the whole sexual tension between her and the master vampire, Jean Claude is enough to drive me mad with anticipation!
