“Anita Blake is still amazing…Affliction is brilliant.”—Fresh Fiction

“Hamilton at her best.”—The Flutterby Room

“If you’ve never read this series, I highly recommend/strongly suggest having the Anita Blake experience. Vampires, zombies, and shifters, oh my! And trust me, these are not your daughter’s vampires…”—Literati Book Reviews
