Anita Blake Series by Lauren K.Hamilton (First 5 book reviewed)

Guilty Pleasures

My name is Anita Blake. Vampires call me The Executioner. What I call them isn't repeatable.Ever since the Supreme Court granted the undead equal rights, most people think vampires are just ordinary folks with fangs. I know better. I've seen their victims. I carry the scars...

But now a serial killer is murdering vampires -- and the most powerful bloodsucker in town wants me to find the killer...

Anita is trying to track down a serial killer that is murdering vampires - a bit of a role reversal for the famous Vampire hunter. But her search brings her into contact with two of the most powerful vampires around and she ends up paying a price much higher than she could ever imagine.

What I like in the book; 
  • The Club
  • Vampire Striptease
  • Philip
  • Anita's character is a nice mix of male and female 
  • resurrection of the Dead Humans(SO COOL!)

What I don't like in the book;
  • Philip's dead
  • Edward
  • Jean-Claude
  • Lord of the city
  • Torture to Anita

 The Laughing Corpse

 Harold Gaynor offers Anita Blake a million dollars to raise a 300-year-old zombie. Knowing it means a human sacrifice will be necessary, Anita turns him down. But when dead bodies start turning up, she realizes that someone else has raised Harold's zombie--and that the zombie is a killer. Anita pits her power against the zombie and the voodoo priestess who controls it.

In The Laughing Corpse Anita will learn that there are some secrets better left buried-and some people better off dead...

Anita turns down the raising of a very ancient zombie, as the only thing powerful enough to do so is the sacrificing of a human being. But the person she turns down just doesn't like taking no for an answer. But when rogue zombies start slaughtering innocent children, she starts to believe that someone took on the job, and lost control of the zombie they raised.

What I like in the book;

  • Discovering power's of Anita
  • Macromancer Thing
  • Jokes
  • Zombies
  • The first person style
  • Dolph
What I hate in the book;
  • The Macromancer
  • Flesh meat eater Zombies
  • lack of vampires
  •  Dominga
  • Gaynor
  • Human sacrificing


Circus of the Damned

In Circus of the Damned-now in trade paperback for the first time-a rogue master vampire hits town, and Anita gets caught in the middle of an undead turf war. Jean-Claude, the Master Vamp of the city, wants her for his own-but his enemies have other plans. And to make matters worse, Anita takes a hit to the heart when she meets a stunningly handsome junior high science teacher named Richard Zeeman. They're two humans caught in the crossfire-or so Anita thinks.

My thoughts;
Finally Vampires!!Here Anita is still working as an animator and an assistant to preternatural police force. Anita has a full plate, as usual, after a full night of corpse raising, she’s then hounded by members of “the vamp hater Church or somesuch” to give up the resting place of the Master of the City (Jean Claude), then a body turns up drained by what appears to be a rogue pack of vamps which leads her to The Circus of the Damned and into close proximity with vampire Jean Claude, a sexy vampire she’d rather avoid. He’s been trying to make her his human servant but she stubbornly refuses, even when it means putting her own life in jeopardy. There’s a whole lot of that “Ma petite I have marked you, you are mine” “I kill vampires, I don’t serve them” nonsense going on. She must train an apprentice animator, face down an angry lamia, crazed humans, out of control zombies and deal with a dangerous master vampire. Despite a lame-ass villain and too much arguing from Anita, I enjoyed this as much as the previous two in the series.

What I like;
  • Richard
What I don't like;
  • Anita Being Stubborn

 The Lunatic Cafe

In Laurell K. Hamilton's New York Times bestselling novels, Vampire Hunter and zombie animator Anita Blake is an expert at sniffing out the bad from the good. But 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.

  My Thoughts;
The handsome Richard viewed as a monster? The sexy Jean-Claude grasping leverage to hostage intimate moments from Anita?

A sexual-sadist, Raina, an alpha werewolf to the local pack and Richard’s former lover, climbs under Blake’s skin and wiggles around, leaving Blake disgusted with the idea that Richard could ever be involved with such a monster.

 Anita may have thought Jean-Claude was old news, but the master vampire still believes he's ahead of the game, his hostility and jealousy growing in this twisted love triangle. Anita's relationship with Richard furthers, despite the fact he wants to rush into a heavy situation where she's just not ready enough to trust anyone completely.

What I like;
  • vampire-girl-werewolf love triangle,
  • Richard
  • J.C
  • Dating a Werewolf
What I don't like;
  • Werewolf's Behaves
  • RAİNA(bitch)

Bloody Bones

Anita Blake, vampire hunter and animator, takes a bite out of crime-of the supernatural kind. But even someone who deals with death on a daily basis can be unnerved by its power...

When Branson, Missouri, is hit with a death wave-four unsolved murders-it doesn't take an expert to realize that all is not well. But luckily for the locals, Anita is an expert-in just the kinds of preternatural goings-on that have everyone spooked. And she's got an "in" with just the kind of creature who can make sense of the slayings: a sexy master vampire known as Jean Claude.

My thoughts;
Anita travels to Branson, Missouri to raise an entire cemetery in order to settle a dispute about the ownership of the land. A property developer wants to build a high-class resort, while a local man, Magnus Bouvier, is very insistent that the land must not be disturbed, but is vague on the reasons why.

Anita doesn’t want to travel, but in her own opinion, she is the only person in the country who might be capable of doing it.

While in Branson, Anita and Larry are asked to help investigate a local vamp kill. While hunting for the vampire responsible, Anita finds that he was able to shapeshift into a dog and enter a house through the dog door.

She calls Jean Claude for help, who explains that the vampire is called Xavier, and is an “exotic” type of vampire that humans don’t know about. Not only that, but he is a pedophile, which makes Anita even more determined to hunt him down.

What I like;
  • Anita's Decides
  • Jason
  •  New Paranormals
  • Larry
  • Police Officers
  • New Powers of Anita
What I don't like;
  • Xavier(of course,he's evil)
  • Magnus Bouvier's behave
