New LKH Boook comes out June 2nd and is called Skin Trade. First chapter is available to read on LKH website. Sounds promising so far. She gets a severed head delivered to her.

I think twilight was worth the media, the rest of the series is debatable but it's not really important anyway, too late. Let them do what they will with it. Anyway ya'll should try reading Jeaniene Frost if you haven't already. Her Night Huntress novels are pretty cool, it's got the awesome violence combined with an actual love story. Good combination that.

In reply to Mandy. I never read the Twilight books for sex, i agree with you that im bored with it from LKH. I am saying that they dont deserve the amount of publicity that they are getting. I would say that they are basic level books and dont need a film about them. A film about Anita would be a lot better but as long as it would be the earlier books.
Whats the name and when is the new Anita Blake one due to come out????

Hey I've just read her book Nightseer, and i was wondering if anyone knew if she ever wrote a book after that one to continue the story line. She kinda left it hanging there. lol

I would have to disagree about the Twilight series. I like them, but they are after all written more for the young adult crowd so no sex, which squite frankly after reading all of LKH's books I can live without. And Christina Feehan, once you've read one of her books you've read every single one. It's repetitive, the characters don't seem to have much in way of personality variance. Kenyon is good although Ash's book was somewhat disappointing. I just don't see how someone who's been used as a whipping post most of his life could be so....good. Maybe it's just me speaking experience as permanently damaged goods but it is never that easy to get through to the abused, nd it was really., really easy with Ash. Ok onto LKH's books, she's got another Anita book coming out here pretty soon. I'm hoping that when I read it this time there will be a lack of the 90210 factor that was in that last book with Jason. I think she should kill one of her main characters to add some action in there. I'm thinking definitely Jean-Claude, I'm really very bored with him. Maybe Belle Morte can kill him and then Anita will finally hunt the cow down and kill her. That would have been my first priority if the skank had started messing with my head. Frankly i was disappointed when Anita didn't being forced to make out with the woman in her mind. Or maybe she should kill Asher, hes not as cool as he started out. I would say she should kill Richard, I could live with the idea, he could finally snap kill Jean-Claude and then try to kill Anita it would give LKH a clean slate to work with. I don't know, it's just disappointing that some of Anita's earlier books will never be made into movies because the new stuff is garbage. They would have made great movies. Oh well.

Hey. I have to agree with most of the posts. I read the first Blake books when they came into my shop and i was hooked. I loved the supence and the blood and how she believed Vampires were evil. How she was amused by the idea of a Vampire 'courting' her, but in her later books i must admit i have got rather bored with them. They really had just turned in love stories, very similier to the v. predictiable Mill's and Boon books.
Please LKH, bring back the old Anite, who dosent 'do' everything in site. Sod love and get back to what works best, the mystery and the gore!
P.S, for those of you who read the Twilight, its really not that good. Way to much publicity for a silly little series. Read something intresting, like Sherrilyn Kenyon or Christine Feehan!!

Well here i am again. I just read the new LKH Gentry book. I have to admit i was once again sorely disappointed. I should have known that nothing as orginal as what she'd done to frost would last. Not when it's simple enough to say love would bring him back. It was dull, and all through the book Marie blah blah's us to death about how she's going to be a queen and how she's going to take care of then and protect her child and then she cops out in the end. I think maybe it was the end of the series, with the way it ended, once again badly, but the whole happily ever after thing was rediculous if not laughable. To be honest I went stratight from reading that to reading Moning's Faefever that the details are fuzzy. Moning's book ended badly too by the way but LKH knows how to top the bad book list,but at least if her Fae series is blessedly over she can start something new. A story with plot and characters that I can read without my friends laughing at me for reading what they call trashy porn for horny women. Kay I'm gonna stop rambling now lest I really make some fans mad. Oh if you haven't seen it HBO's True Blood is awesome.

So the new title is Skin Trade, seems like an odd title. I would have to tend to agree in hoping that it isn't in some way related to Anita humping another new character that not even I, someone who has read all the books can keep track of. I mean I lost track way back when. There's some guy that calls her ducky and another with some other nick-name which is how i identify them. Anyway, I would settle for violence or some new developments with her own inner shape shifter. I was just stewing a couple nights ago, in disappointment a few months back about the Twilight series getting a movie. Cause lets face it, if LKH hadn't gone in the direction she had she so could have a movie. I thought instead we've Twilight. That was of course until I read the book. I still have a wonderfully youthful spirit so it was easy to connect with the books. She does good characters, and yes it is a young adult book but that doesn't mean they can't be good. If you haven't read I recommend giving it a try. Note to LKH current fans Twilight is very pure, keep that in mind while, if you decide to, give it a chance.

LKH just realeased the date for her new Anita book. June 2009. Its going to be called "Skin Trade". I really hope that title has something to do with a monster eating people or something, and not sex. We need the old Anita back.

It was way to soap opera for me. You've actually read it twice, i just got done reading Sherrilyn Kenyons Acheron it's around 700 pages but every minute of makes you feel so much for that character that I didn't really notice how long it was. But to reread a book that was predictable and melodramatic I cringe. I'm not sure which LKH has coming out next I've already got both on hold at the library, here's hoping she won't disappoint, again.
