Kiss the Dead by Laurell K Hamilton

When a fifteen-year-old girl is abducted by vampires, it’s up to U.S. Marshal Anita Blake to find her. And when she does, she’s faced with something she’s never seen before: a terrifyingly ordinary group of people—kids, grandparents, soccer moms—all recently turned and willing to die to avoid serving a master. And where there’s one martyr, there will be more…

But even vampires have monsters that they’re afraid of. And Anita is one of them…

If you are a regular follower of the blog then you know that Hamilton is by far one of my favorite author's, I even had a month where all that I read was her books and those with assigned posting date's, so it should be no surprise that I am posting a review on her latest book, even though it entered my Read pile a while ago.

I was actually fairly disappointed with this book, It seemed like a filler in the series. It is a book I could have gone without reading and still been ok. Yes there was sex scene's, when isn't there in the book, but they are starting to get old and repetitive. I didn't start to read the book for the steamy erotica, though it was a plus. I fell in love with the book because of the plot, and the murder and the way Anita seemed to fight tooth and nail for her beliefs.

It just felt bland, especially the ending. It seemed like two pages of a conflict that got resolves so easily. I was sooo frustrated with the books, I really do wish Hamilton would go back to how the series started or end it.

Yes there is some background on Sin, Yes Asher starts making problems, but the way it was written I was not as excited as I could have been for it, it actually started to bore me, a thought that I never thought would come to be when reading one of Hamilton's works.

This book was worth the money for my collection but I probably won't re-read it.

2.5 =( Really really disappointing...
