Affliction (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #22) by Laurell K. Hamilton

Affliction  (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #22) by Laurell K. Hamilton
This is an adult paranormal fantasy novel (Rated NC-17)
(Four and a Half Zombie Hearts) 

Book Summary
Some zombies are raised. Others must be put down. Just ask Anita Blake.

Before now, she would have considered them merely off-putting, never dangerous. Before now, she had never heard of any of them causing human beings to perish in agony. But that’s all changed.

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

Anita 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.
My Review
All my favorite men or most at least are in this installment. And sadly she will not sleep with all of them. This edition features more plot not related to the ardor than other installments. Sad but true. Still, I loved this one.
I am going to give a tiny spoiler. Edward is in this installment. That should tell you something. When he’s there, the story is more focused on the mystery and not sex.
Still, there are a few things in this one that bother me. Call me selfish, but I want to have my cake and eat it too and not invite anyone else to the buffet. If you’ve read, it mostly has to do with Micah. I understand, but it still bothers me. At least in this installment it’s just information. I didn’t have to see it in action. UGH.
And this story deals with the latest craze, Zombies. And boy it’s going to be a blood bath. There is also a lot of conclusions about how everyone fits in Anita’s life and the ending is a damn teaser to what’s to come. I can’t wait.

For those of you who love Nora from the Original Sinners series and like paranormal, Anita is your girl. They are cut almost from the same cloth in some respects.
Audio Review
Kimberly Alexis is the master. God she does an assume job with this series. Her narration is spot on.
My book boyfriend and a true hero of the story Nathaniel. And I never thought I’d say that. (At least she’s not long winded about his hair in this story.) And I may get his hair color wrong. Forgive me. And I'm giving you Micah too.
