When Anita Blake's boss at Animators, Inc., informs her that she's expected to raise 300-year-old zombies from a field of jumbled bones just to settle a land dispute, she's understandably annoyed. But as soon as she arrives in Branson, Missouri, to do the deed, the job gets more interesting. A psychotic sword-wielding vampire starts committing multiple murders in the area, and Anita must call on Jean-Claude, her powerful fanged suitor, for help. As always, Anita prevails over the undead, keeping Jean-Claude at arm's length, clearing the cemetery land of an ancient enchantment, and nailing the vampiric killer in one fell swoop.
"First, there were the dead in the graveyard - two-hundred years dead. I'd been hired to raise them to settle a dispute over who owned the land they were buried in.
Then there were the three dead teenagers in the woods, slaughtered in a way I had never seen before.
And then they found the dead girl, drained of blood and left in her bed.
I knew what that meant, all right. It didn't take a degree in preternatural studies to figure out that something was very wrong in and around Branson, Missouri. My name is Anita Blake. Welcome to my life.
Bloody Bones begins with Anita having to go out of town to raise a 300-hundred year old zombie. But nothing is every simple for Ms. Blake, ever. She know must try to help the local police and FBI, who don't want her help, find a killer. And this killer is different from any monster she has seen so far. Not only that, but she also must deal with her vampire who won't stay away, but she needs his help. With all of this going on, she still has to do her job, and help the police.
This book was really good. I really enjoyed this one a whole lot. And I loved that Anita spent more time with the Master Vampire of her city. I also liked learning more about the vampires in general it was really need. And we even got to learn some new things about some new types of monsters that she had to deal with. I can not wait to read more in this series!
