I was ready to be disappointed with the book because of the limited number of pages but I was so wrong. It was still action packed and focused around Anita's occupation. I enjoyed returning to her line of work and reading about how powerful she has become. This was a little taste of how Anita is warming up to all of the men she has aquired, her feelings about the ardeur, and a reminder of how kick ass Anita can be. This story will also introduce lions into the life of Anita Blake and oh how rockin it was!! Good short story. I am ready for a longer novel on vampire hunter Anita and all of her men.
