Vampires call her “The Executioner.” Anita Blake, preternatural expert, raises the dead, helps the St. Louis police solve crimes, and is licensed to kill vampires. Seems everyone wants her help or wants her sex. Others want her dead. But our heroine doesn’t take lip—or fang—from anyone. Yet she can’t help getting romantically involved with vampires, werewolves and shapeshifters—complicating her obligations to both the living and the undead.
Empty-eyed and icy-hearted, Edward is a professional hit-man who specializes in monsters—and Anita may be his only friend. So when he calls in a favor, she’s off to New Mexico, where in the last two weeks twelve people have been murdered. They were the lucky ones. Other victims have been flayed yet kept horribly alive by magic. Anita is uncharacteristically shaken—as much by Edward’s new family man persona as by the crimes. But she must shelve her fear to help him hunt down the greatest evil she’s ever encountered. It’s ancient and devious—and in the end, she’ll have to face it alone.
Narcissus in Chains
Six months have passed since Anita has seen either Jean-Claude or Richard. Six months of celibacy, of indecision…of danger. For her body carries the marks of both vampire and werewolf—and until their union is consummated, all three remain vulnerable. But when a sexual sadist kidnaps the wereleopards she swore to protect, she needs all the help she can get. An explosive union with both lovers increases her power, but a twist of fate leads her closer to a startling transformation. Suddenly she finds herself estranged from Richard and his wolf pack—just as she succumbs to the bloodlust and desire consuming her soul.
