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.

Synopsis

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...

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

Suzanne Beney

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

Val Rowe

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.
