From Goodreads:

The final novel in the New York Times bestselling series

It’s all come down to this, following the discoveries made by Cormac in Low Midnight, Kitty and her allies are ready to strike. But, when their assassination attempt on the evil vampire Dux Bellorum fails, Kitty finds herself running out of time. The elusive vampire lord has begun his apocalyptic end game, and Kitty still doesn’t know where he will strike.

Meanwhile, pressure mounts in Denver as Kitty and her pack begin to experience the true reach of Dux Bellorum’s cult. Outnumbered and outgunned at every turn, the stakes have never been higher for Kitty. She will have to call on allies both old and new in order to save not just her family and friends, but the rest of the world as well.

 

Why I am Waiting…

Three words: THE. FINAL. NOVEL.

This series is really good.  I have been waiting for this ultimate showdown for a while.  So far, it hasn’t turned out quite as I expected, which is actually pretty great.  I was beginning to get bored with predicting how a series would progress.  Vaughn surprised me, and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with in the finale!

Dead Ice

Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #24

by Laurell K. Hamilton

From  Goodreads: 

Anita Blake has the highest kill count of any vampire executioner in the country. She’s a U.S. Marshal who can raise zombies with the best of them. But ever since she and master vampire Jean-Claude went public with their engagement, all she is to anyone and everyone is Jean-Claude’s fiancée.

It’s wreaking havoc with her reputation as a hard ass—to some extent. Luckily, in professional circles, she’s still the go-to expert for zombie issues. And right now, the FBI is having one hell of a zombie issue.

Someone is producing zombie porn. Anita has seen her share of freaky undead fetishes, so this shouldn’t bother her. But the women being victimized aren’t just mindless, rotting corpses. Their souls are trapped behind their eyes, signaling voodoo of the blackest kind.

It’s the sort of case that can leave a mark on a person. And Anita’s own soul may not survive unscathed . . .

 

Why I am waiting…

You probably looked at the number of this volume in the series and were immediately turned off.  It is in fact, the longest series I have ever read, include Joanna Fluke’s Hannah Swenson and Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum novels.  Even though I don’t adore all of the novels, they are generall pretty good.  They make a fantastic beach read…fast-paced and fun.  They can be a little graphic, but general a good read.  These are not quite as much stand-alone novels as the Swenson and Plum novels, but they are contained enough to be read independantly.
