There are a lot of monsters in Anita Blake's life. And some of them are human. One such individual is the man she calls Edward, a bounty hunter who specializes in the preternatural. He calls her to help him hunt down the greatest evil she has ever encountered. Something that kills and maims and vanishes into the night. Something Anita will have to face alone... Library Journal This is the ninth book in Hamilton's popular Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series. Anita is feisty and opinionated, and she never backs down from a fight. Oh, and she does dabble in a little vampire slaying. In this story, Edward, a monster hunter even more ruthless than Anita, asks her to come to Albuquerque to help him track down a creature so vicious that even he is spooked: it rips apart its victims and leaves its survivors skinned alive. For help in the investigation, they have to call on the city's master vampire, Itzpapalotl (Aztec for obsidian butterfly ). This former Aztec priestess/nightclub owner agrees to answer questions--but only after dazzlingly displaying her awesome powers. As in Hamilton's other novels, this book contains an abundance of thrills, chills, violence, and sexual innuendo.
