My name is Anita Blake. The vampires call me 'The Executioner'. After a series of gruesome murders in the Pacific Northwest, the local police call me in and fellow US Marshal Edward to track down a serial killer they are convinced must be a 'monster'. But I know that some monsters are very real. The Harlequin are a secret so dark, even to speak their name can earn you a death sentence. Now they're here, hunting weretigers and a human police. And me. The Harlequin serve the Mother of All Darkness, the first vampire. Back from the dead, she's determined to kill Edward and to possess me. And she doesn't care how many others have to die along the way.


I'm always over-excited when I get to read an Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Series book, and I admit I was particularly curious about this release because I read many people saying this instalment could have been a sort of ending. But to be honest I haven't felt that way at all. Of course there are some events that close a big part of the series, but thing is that I would have been disappointed with a end like that, because from my point of view it was a too fast and easy closure for something so big and unique. Plus, there weren't all the special men we so love as much as Anita does (ok, perhaps she does more but still!) and could you really imagine not having the possibility to "see" them once more and say a proper goodbye? I don't know about you but I hope from the bottom of my heart that goodbye is far, far away...

Speaking of men, there's a new entry here and a really lovely one! Ethan isn't just handsome (go figure!), he's simply adorable! He definitely has something special that keeps you attracted to him, and not just in a physical way. I seriously would have taken him home with me in an instant! But then which man of this series would I dare not having at home with me, huh?

"Hit List" is an amazing 20th instalment of one of the most powerful series ever, and despite someone could feel this book like an ending to the series, trust me, something terribly dangerous has just taken form...
