In the early ’90s, Laurell K. Hamilton delighted horror fans and lovers of all things preternatural when she first introduced Anita Blake, vampire hunter extraordinaire. Now this tough-as-nails but highly feminine necromancer is back for her ninth showing in Obsidian Butterfly, as twisted a tale as any of its predecessors.

There are a lot of monsters in Anita Blake’s life, and some of them are human. One such individual is the man she calls Edward, a bounty hunter who specializes in the preternatural. He calls her to help him hunt down the greatest evil she has ever encountered: something that kills and maims and vanishes into the night—something Anita will have to face alone.

    " Vampires, werewolves, sex. what more could you want? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 2/17/2014

    " The 9th book in this series was only a 3/5 for me. While there were gems that were wonderful, I was pretty bored with this one. The parts that I loved were that we got further development of Edward/Ted and saw more of how Anita and he are more alike than different. I REALLY do not like the whole ideal of Olaf/Otto - I understand that he comes into play in later books but I find it hard to believe that Anita wouldn't have just killed him once she realized what he really was. She's killed others for a lot less. Plus, I got really bored with the gun stand-off every five minutes. I missed Jean-Claude and Richard and Jason and the rest of the St. Louis crew. Was it still a good read? Yes, but just not as good as some of the others in the series. But if you're going through the series you really do have to read this one as Anita does learn some skills that are vitally important to later adventures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 2/12/2014

    " I enjoyed learning more about "Edward's" story but in comparison to the books in this series it had a much slower pace. I liked it but didn't love it like the rest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gretchen | 2/5/2014

    " This one was pretty good! It brought the bounty hunter Edward more into the picture. I really enjoyed this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arvm | 1/28/2014

    " I found Obsidian Butterfly to be completely out of the blue. I really enjoyed it, it was different from the other books, more horror and gore. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 StrangeBedfellows | 1/24/2014

    " One of the better books of the series. Things actually happen, and Anita stays true to her kickass potential. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 1/16/2014

    " The pinnacle of the Anita Blake series, before it all went downhill. Anita is still tough, funny, and not sleeping with everything that moves. Edward is both the relentless killer, and a real human with weaknesses. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 1/16/2014

    " my fav anita book..edward is simply amazing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Virginie.V | 11/18/2013

    " I thought Anita would have a break ... my mistake. Edward (oups Ted ... sorry) is a fascinating character!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cara | 10/25/2013

    " This is my favorite book so far. Very disturbing but Edward makes it worth it!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashlyn | 9/10/2013

    " I actually liked this book the best so far. Anita was somewhat normal, but we got to see and learn way more about Edward. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Richard | 9/2/2013

    " I think this was the point in the series where it tipped too far into Romance novel land. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bethnoir | 7/26/2013

    " ew, too gory, too many nasty characters, especially baby eaters and child molesters, yuck. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 6/1/2013

    " Ms. Hamilton really broke the mold with this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachael | 5/15/2013

    " I really liked getting to know Edward a little better. That made up for the lack of zombies and old school Anita. Read the excerpt from Narcissus in Chains and can't wait to read that one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 2/26/2013

    " Her last GOOD Anita Blake novel. In my opinion at least. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristalyn | 1/8/2013

    " This one is definitely for the Edward fans! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joy | 10/3/2012

    " This I think is my all time favorite book from this series because I really enjoy Edward's character and in this book you get to know him a lot better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick | 5/14/2012

    " This is my favorite Hamilton book. Her books have not been very good lately because they focus on sex too much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wogc | 10/30/2011

    " The LAST good book in the series, in my opinion. and, by that, I mean one with well pictured/believable characters (Anita,Ed, Olaf...) and mostly, A PLOT!!!!! :p "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrice | 9/24/2011

    " I liked this one. It's good to see what Anita can do, independent of Richard and Jean Claude. Also, I liked learning a lot more about Edward. His character is less two dimensional now. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marjie Becker | 9/5/2011

    " Not my favorite Hamilton book......hardly any Jean Claude...who I LOVE!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl | 6/10/2011

    " When I read these the 4th time, I skipped this one, but oing bk to it now. I wanted everything fresh for he newest book. Her sat (hit list) was good. Flirt was bad, and I considered dropping the series. Glad I hung in there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 5/1/2011

    " After book 8, I pretty much gave up on Hamilton. I'd read erotica if I just wanted a book full of sex. It definitely lacks of alot of plot and Anita Blake just becomes more interested in her harem of men. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leann | 4/28/2011

    " This is my absolute favorite Anita Blake book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 4/26/2011

    " my fav anita book..edward is simply amazing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam | 4/9/2011

    " Edward Called in the favor That was owed ti him By Anita and Edward Shocked Anita with a few suprises of His own for her . Also He had a Seriel killer murder to solve That was not done by a Human . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leila | 4/5/2011

    " The best of the Anita Blake books (though I enjoyed Blue Moon and the earlier books as well). The horror is really horrifying. The monsters truly scary. The focus on Anita and Edward was fantastic. And I enjoyed the extra characters like, Olaf. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 4/4/2011

    " i really loved seeing edwards 'world' ... it was nice to see a diff side of him & to see he is not all monster "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 4/2/2011

    " i only want to say this is one of my favorite books in the series. It mostly has to with Edward, Olaf and sexy sexy Berarndo. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eve | 4/2/2011

    " This is definitely one of the best in this series; didn't care for the previous one so much. But this one was good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maegan | 3/31/2011

    " I didn't think I'd like this book because the "boys" didn't really play a part in it, but I really enjoyed it! I was pretty indifferent to Edward--was neither a fan but didn't dislike him, but from the start of this book, my interest into his character was peaked. "
