I am a huge fan of Anita Blake. Probably because she kicks ass, takes very little crap, and has men tripping all over themselves. In this book Richard works on not being such an a hole, Haven is a total a hole, and there is lots of struggle within the vampire and were-animal community. Anita discovers she has more power to use and uses it. Asher has a tantrum. And Anita adds to her collection.
