Jove 13450 Obsidian Butterfly GOOD
By Laurell K. Hamilton
An inhabitant of an alternate Earth very much like our own--except that magic coexists there with natural law, and preternatural beings like vampires and werewolves coexist with humans--Anita Blake is full of contradictions that make her a potent lead character for this continuing series. Although Anita is a licensed vampire executioner, one of her lovers is a vampire (the other is a werewolf); she packs more firepower than a small army, but is a dedicated Christian; she's tough-as-nails yet ultra feminine; she tangles with seriously dangerous supernatural forces, but she's as matter of fact about dealing with magic as she is about bashing bad guys, and she's as quick with a quip as she is with a well-placed kick to the groin.
In her ninth adventure, Anita is summoned to New Mexico by Edward (aka "Death"), the cold-blooded killer from previous books to whom she owes a favor. Edward is a hit man, specializing in monsters. Anita does this legally, but Edward does not sweat legalities or ethics. In the course of investigating a series of grotesque murders (victims torn to bloody bits, survivors flayed of all flesh), Edward becomes more human and Anita less so. (WARNING: Steamy sexual encounters)
First Jove printing, 2002. An excellent copy except for one major flaw: The binding is creased, and partially broken, near the middle. There are also a few touches of corner wear.
