Anita Blake is back in the twentieth book of the series created by Laurell Hamilton. If you are a fan of Anita Blake series you will want to check out Hit List.
Anita is back with her US Marshal’s badge helping out fellow Marshal Ted “Edward” but they will not be alone as Bernardo and Olaf will be on the scene. The team is helping to find out what had tore apart a man but Anita soon finds out that the Harlequin are after her still. With help of some of her men from St. Louis Anita will be protected but there will be causalities. Anita will also be running from Mother of all Darkness and this time she might be caught.
Laurell Hamilton is a hit or miss for me. I love her series at the beginning. I thought it was unique and different then it gets weird on you with all the things which happen to the character Anita. But still I want to keep reading as it intrigues me. The past couple of books were alright but I have to admit after reading Hit List I was excited about the series again. Hamilton goes back more to the roots of crime fighting and the sex was minimal. But no matter what I will always read the series to find out what will happen next. Once I start a series I will always see it out.
I really liked the crime fighting which surrounded the book. It was interesting to read about Edward, Anita, Bernardo, and Olaf all working together again. I also liked how Hamilton concentrated on hunting the killers which of course are the Harlequin. Hamilton will get Anita in a very tight situation which will be solved only with the help of her men which is interesting because she is still not all powerful and needs support.
At the end of Hit List Hamilton sets up her character Olaf to go through some changes which will effect Anita first and foremost. I liked how Hamilton also is keeping Edward in the picture. He is one of my favorite characters and I love how he is changing and growing into someone else. I am looking forward to when Hamilton will include Donna, Becca and Peter again.
