Must have missed something if Anita had sex with Jade. Will have to go back and check that out. Still lots of sex and with many partners and she's using heteroflexible and polyamorous. Bet she has the prudes with their knickers all twisted. Engrossing but a few spelling errors that were glaring as well as the sudden drop at the end. At least it looked like a real novel instead of the novella of the last. Won't pay for the ebook Beauty after the reviews of it though. ( )

OMG, what garbage! I think this is the last book of LKH I will ever read. I thought Flirt was her worst book, as I gave it 0 out of 10 rating, but this is seriously close...

There is no plot. There are token situations which regurgitate LKH previous books. Token hate from police, - check. Token explanation of her messy love life, - check. Token jealousy of Asher, - check. Token fear for her and petulance of her child lover who replaced grown up Nataniel on the bottom of her food chain, - check. Token ma petite, - check. Token people thinking that Anita is a monster, - check.

I'm so tired of the series going nowhere for so many years already, I just can't do it anymore. She's done, finished as a writer or sick of this series herself, because there is literally nothing new. Everything in this book can be found in previous ones. It feels like copy and paste job sometimes.

The only way you'll get through Kiss The Dead is by playing drinking game. By the end of it you'll be drunk as skunk and very hazy on the details.

Not recommended to anyone. ( )

Ooooh, there are so many things going on in this book. Anita's guilt over Sin, vampires who want to be free of masters, cops who hate others... Seriously, a bomb threat that made my heart stop in terror. My favorite character almost dies. I don't know if I could have handled that. As it was I just finished like five minutes ago and I'm still a quivering mass of emotion. In the end I'm glad it turned out ok. Glad we got to see Nathaniel, Micah, and Jean Claude. It's also easy to forget what a jealous monster that Asher can be, yet when that ugly head roars heads will roll. Even if not quite physically but mentally it is still a lot to take. Over all this book was really good. ( )

I am a huge fan and supporter of LKH, but this book was definitely not one of my favorites. The Anita Blake series has gone down hill and needs something to rekindle the fire. I am not ready to write off LKH or Anita Blake as some seem to be, but I do think that LKH needs to focus more on the building of the story line rather than the sex in the story. Mind you, good sex scenes are awesome and she does well in writing them; yet looking for more meat in the story! ( )

Anita working with the police and raising zombies at this point are the only things I like about the series for the most part. The first part of the book has what I like but the second half is all relationship angst with a quickie ending tacked on. I'll keep reading these as long as the library keeps stocking them. ( )

Book description
When a 13-yr-old girl is abducted by vampires, it's up to US Marshal Anita Blake to find her. And when she does, she's faced with something she's never seen before: a terrifyingly ordinary group of people - kids, grandparents, soccer moms - all recently turned and willing to die to avoid serving a master. 
And where there's one martyr there will be more ...

But even vampires have monsters they're afraid of ... and one of them is THE Executioner Anita Blake.
