Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Back before Stephenie Meyer, the sensuous vampire novel was invented by Bram Stoker, enhanced by Anne Rice and popularised by Buffy. Just before Buffy came Anita Blake, vampire-hunting heroine extraordinaire … The series is huge and in this country has just changed publishing houses so glorious reissues of her past catalogue will appear in classy newly designed covers, but fans take note, this is a new one – the sixteenth.

Comparison: Anne Rice, Jennifer Rardin.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


Skin Trade by Laurell K Hamilton

The sensational new novel featuring vampire-hunting heroine Anita Blake.

Anita Blake's reputation has taken some hits. Not on the work front, where she has the highest kill count of all the legal vampire executioners in the country, but on the personal front. No one seems to trust a woman who sleeps with the monsters. Still, when a vampire serial killer sends her a head from Las Vegas, Anita has to warn Sin City's local authorities what they're dealing with. Only it's worse than she thought. Several officers and one executioner have been slain -- paranormal style...

Anita heads to Las Vegas, where she's joined by three other federal marshals, including the ruthless Edward hiding behind his mild-mannered persona. It's a good thing Edward always has her back, because, when she gets close to the bodies, Anita senses 'tiger' too strongly to ignore it. The were-tigers are very powerful, which means the odds of her rubbing someone important up the wrong way just got a lot higher...
