Summary from Goodreads:
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…
I have loved every book in this series since the very beginning and this one was no different. The complex world that LKH has created never lets me down.
In Kiss The Dead we kind of go back to Anita's roots. The story surrounded mostly police work on a vampire case. I loved seeing the interrogations, the standoffs and all the other police action.
I love seeing Anita interact with all her men. She seems to have finally found a happy place with herself and what her life is like. Since Anita is not fighting everything anymore she is more at ease which in turn makes all the men easier for her deal with.
The sex scenes were mild but very enjoyable. LKH seemed to concentrate more on Anita's relationships than she did then the sex in this book and it was very refreshing to see everyone evolve so much.
Jean-Claude has been there for Anita from the very beginning and it was great to have him be such a large part of this book. Nathaniel, Micah, Sin and Asher were also major players this time.
I loved every page of this book and I am anxiously awaiting the next installment of the Anita Blake Series.
