Book #: Book 6 in the Anita Blake series
Dating both a vampire and a werewolf isn’t easy. But just to complicate Anita’s already messy life, someone has put a price on her head. Love cannot save her this time, so she turns to Edward, hitman extraordinaire, for help. But finding the person behind the threat won’t be easy, because as both a vampire hunter and zombie reanimator, Anita has made a lot of enemies-both human and otherwise.
Okay, these books are just getting more and more amazing. Anita’s dating Richard, who is her clear favourite to win her heart, and dating Jean Claude, who she’s mainly amusing, as you would a child, who is trying to get something they clearly will never get (OR SO WE THINK. DUN DUN DUUUNNNN)
Moving on. So Anita’s got a hit out on her, and Jean Claude is opening up a new club, and Richard is trying to control the were’s while fighting for dominance against Marcus who he won’t kill. It’s just all go-go-go really. And Edwards in town. I think he may be one of my favourite background characters!
And finally, finally, some smut occurs in this book. Anita finally chucks it in and sleeps with someone, which deserves a round of applause here. I mean,6 books and before she does the deed. It may be a record.
The Killing Dance rating: 9/10. May be my favourite in the series so far
Would I re-read it? I certainly would
Who would I recommend it to? Fans of the series, fans of paranormal romances.
