The early Anita Blake novels find new life in trade paperback-as perfect collectibles for long-time fans or as great ways for new readers to sink their teeth into the series.

"I liked this book better than the first book in the series. It's beginning to get exciting. I cannot wait to learn more about Anita. She's an awesome character. She's tough, funny, sarcastic, the type of character I enjoy reading about."

    " Anita gets yet another enemy in the guise of a Voodoo Queen!! Jean Claude still can't take a hint. Even though the crime scenes are pretty graphic I think it's refreshing the way she reacts to them in the same manner that I think I would. A nice and fast read and I'm on to the next one! "
