Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.com, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This weeks can’t-wait-to-read is:
Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #24
by Laurell K. Hamilton
06 . 09 . 2015
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.
