Synopsis

Micah’s estranged father lies dying, rotting away inside from some strange ailment that has his doctors whispering about “zombie disease.”

Anita Blake makes her living off of zombies—but these aren’t the kind she knows so well. These creatures hunt in daylight, and are as fast and strong as vampires. If they bite you, you become just like them. And round and round it goes…Where will it stop? Even Anita Blake doesn’t know.

The already converted may consider a sermon interleaved with brief slivers of story acceptable; others will be bored rather than outraged.

Her take on zombies is invigorating—even for the purest of horror fans—it's no wonder readers keep coming back for more. . Hamilton also manages to embed contemporary issues in with the fast-pace action,; addressing sexism, homophobia, religious fundamentalism, and racism from fresh and unusual perspectives.

It’s not without its problems, but I firmly believe that a good editor who isn’t afraid to tell a very successful writer “you have to change these things to make the book better” would make the next Anita book so much stronger.

Overall, it was a good read. I'm more into the vampire/were storylines, rather then necromancer/zombie storylines. It was well written, funny, and full of action.
