by Laurell K. Hamilton
Anita Blake Vampire Hunter, Book 22

Expected Release Date: July 2, 2013
Publisher: Berkley

Book Description:

Some zombies are raised. Others must be put down. Just ask Anita Blake.

Before now, she would have considered them merely off-putting, never dangerous. Before now, she had never heard of any of them causing human beings to perish in agony. But that’s all changed.

Micah’s estranged father lies dying, rotting away inside from some strange ailment that has his doctors whispering about “zombie disease.”

Anita makes her living off of zombies—but these aren’t the kind she knows so well. These creatures hunt in daylight, and are as fast and strong as vampires. If they bite you, you become just like them. And round and round it goes…

Where will it stop?
Even Anita Blake doesn’t know.

Why I'm Waiting On This Book:

1. This was one of the first Paranormal series I ever began reading and I still like it.

2. This is finally the promised "Micah reunites with his family book"

3. Different zombies than Anita usually fights

4. At almost 600 pages - I believe this is the longest book I'll have read by this author

  1. Wow - up to 22 books in the series now, eh? I read the first 2 or 3, but they just didn't grab me enough to keep going. I'd be curious to dive into one of the later books just to see how things have developed.

  5. I love this series! I haven't read it in a few years and that's only because I read 19 book in a row and needed a break. I've been waiting for more to come out before I dive back into this series. Thanks for sharing!
