Title:  Guilty Pleasures
Series:  Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #1
Author:  Laurell K. Hamilton
Genre: Urban Fantasy 
Paperback, 355 pages 
Published August 3rd 2004 by Berkley Trade

Anita Blake may be small and young, but vampires call her the Executioner. Anita is a necromancer and vampire hunter in a time when vampires are protected by law—as long as they don't get too nasty. Now someone's killing innocent vampires and Anita agrees—with a bit of vampiric arm-twisting—to help figure out who and why.

Trust is a luxury Anita can't afford when her allies aren't human. The city's most powerful vampire, Nikolaos, is 1,000 years old and looks like a 10-year-old girl. The second most powerful vampire, Jean-Claude, is interested in more than just Anita's professional talents, but the feisty necromancer isn't playing along—yet. This popular series has a wild energy and humor, and some very appealing characters—both dead and alive.

My Thoughts
Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter.  This series has been on my to-read list for a LONG time.  I'm glad I finally took the time.  I enjoyed book one and am looking forward to the rest of the series.  

Anita Blake is the kind of heroine I like reading about.  She carries around a no-nonsense attitude and knows how to get the job done.
