It was great when Anita starts to realize her other powers in Blue Moon though.

Anita throws some clothes into a bag and makes some phone calls.

Format: Hardcover
The first eight novels in Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series are collected in three hardback volumes of which "Black Moon Inn" is the third. "Club Vampyre" had the first three novels ("Guilty Pleasures," "The Laughing Corpse, and "Circus of the Damned"), and "The Midnight Cafe" had the next three ("Lunatic Cafe," "Bloody Bones," and "Killing Dance"). That last one is the pivotal novel in the series because Anita finally chooses Jean-Claude, the Master Vampire of St. Louis over Richard, the werewolf middle-school teachers. But we now know that nothing is every settled in the world of Anita Blake when it comes to either her tangled love life or her growing supernatural powers. The stories collected in "Black Moon Inn" are a notch below most of the previous stories, but are still part of the premier horror series of our time.

I expected there to be a let down after Anita made her big choice in the previous novel but "Burnt Offerings," the seventh in the series definitely tries to top what has gone before, as several members of the Vampire Council arrive in St. Louis intending to deal harshly with Jean-Claude. Remember back when Anita killed Oliver, the ancient vampire who wanted the U.S. to strip away the rights given to vampires? Well, it seems Oliver was a member of the Council and Jean-Claude has refused to take his place as custom dictates. Plus, the triumvirate established between our heroine and her two paramours is also potentially threatening to the Council. Then there are a couple of vampires with mondo grudges against our little group. Meanwhile, there appears to be a pyrokinetic arsonist running around and the anti-Vampire groups are escalating their attacks.

The only reason I gave this book three stars is because the books that it contains are actually some of my favorites. Having said that, however, I REALLY object to the publishers putting compilations of previously published books out under new titles without stamping "REISSUE OF PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED WORK"in HUGE red letters on the front. I've purchased too many of these thinking they were books that I hadn't yet read, only to find out that they are the same old books -- just a new cover and or title. FOUL PLAY!!!

Format: Hardcover
Black Moon Inn (1998) is the third Fantasy omnibus in the Anita Blake series, following The Midnight Cafe. It contains Burnt Offering and Blue Moon. The initial omnibus volume in this sequence is Club Vampire.

Burnt Offering (1998) is the seventh novel in this series. Anita is hired by Captain Pete McKinnon of the Fire Department to investigate a series of unusual fires. He had been referred to Anita by Sergeant Rudolph Storr, leader of RPIT (Regional Preternatural Investigation Team).

McKinnon thinks these fires have all the signs of a firebug, a pyrokinetic arsonist. He had previously encountered such a psychic talent and does not want to repeat those experiences.

After McKinnon left, Anita receives a call from a co-worker asking for a ride. Larry -- a vampire executioner trainee -- had gone to the morgue to stake the bodies of two vampire victims who did not want to rise from the dead. After completing that job, a hospital attendant had wheeled in another body to be staked.

Since the third body did not have the proper paperwork, Larry refused to stake it. While they are waiting for the paperwork to be recovered, Larry went to talk to the medical examiner. When he returned to the morgue, he found the attendant trying to stake the body with his own equipment. He removed her from the body, but then she tried to stake him.

The book was for my daughter. She cannot put it down! She has to give me a blow by blow update after reading it everyday. It makes the Twilight saga look like kiddy books

I have always loved the books in the Anita Blake series. It is not the sex but the action that makes you want to be there and be apart.
