what I've always said. That's what I've always believed. But now I'm
the one sharing a bed with the Master Vampire of the City. Me, Anita
Blake. The woman the vampires call the Executioner. From part of the
solution, I've become part of the problem. So it hits close to home when
an arsonist begins to target vampire-owned businesses all over town --
an arsonist who seems to want to destroy more than just property. It's
the monsters who are in danger now. And it's up the the Executioner to
save them from the inferno... (Goodreads Synopsis)
I enjoyed Burnt Offerings, the 7th book in the Anita Blake series. I am intrigued by where the series is heading with the triumvirate and the growth of Anita's powers. Anita remains an interesting character as does not yet feel in the least bit stale or overused. I think this is helped by the new characters that keep coming in around her as it gives her new interactions and prevents the curse of familiarity.
I will now start book 8 and I am keen to see how things will continue to unfold.
