Anita Blake Vampire Hunter by: Laurell K. Hamilton

Laurell K. Hamilton's novel, Guilty Pleasures, is what made me fall in love with urban fantasy in the first place. She just released her 17th book in this series, Flirt, and already I am impatient for the next one to come out. Be warned her books are very sexual, graphic, juicy, and delicious but if you love urban fantasy and haven’t yet read a Anita Blake novel then you’re missing out. This is the woman who pioneered the urban fantasy genre and no one does it better than she does. The Anita Blake series is book candy at its tastiest! Below is a synopsis for the first novel in the series, Guilty Pleasures, as well as a link to her web site.

My name is Anita Blake. Vampires call me The Executioner. What I call them isn''t repeatable.
Ever since the Supreme Court granted the undead equal rights, most people think vampires are just ordinary folks with fangs. I know better. I''ve seen their victims. I carry the scars...
But now a serial killer is murdering vampires -- and the most powerful bloodsucker in town wants me to find the killer...

I should add a WARNING to all parents that there is a high volume of sexual content that I wouldn't want my young teenage daughter to read so heads up.

Happy Reading :)

I read the first one in the series and liked it but wasn't totally blown away. Maybe that's because it was an icky, old library paperback that smelled bad. I'll have to give the second book a try. I do like that she was the pioneer of urban fantasy.
