I liked Anita very much. She isn't the whiney kind of protagonist, but an independent woman with a lot of guns. The zombie-raising stuff was fun and the investigation part was exciting.I did think the vampire-addicts were a bit creepy, but maybe that's the whole point. I just think the idea of being covered with scars is kinda disturbing. Still, Jean-Claude is interesting, and I would like to see where this series goes. I know they really change after a few books, but we'll see how that turns out.A very strong first enstallment.
