"You can't trust anyone who sleeps with the monsters."
That's 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.
This book in the series starts with Anita and the Master Vampire of the city out on the town, when they are summoned by the Council of Vampires. Things are about to get really bad for Anita and her friends, and she's not sure she can do much to help. Not only that, but she must also deal with Richard coming to help as well, and he could possibly be hurt too. All three of them need to work together in order to help their people.
This book was okay, but I was a little frustrated with some of the things that went on. I'm also really annoyed with Richard, and Anita. I kind of hate how things turned out, and it is kind of bugging me. Other then that I liked this one, but it wasn't the best I've read of this series. I hope the next one is better.
