The Laughing Corpse (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #2) by Laurell K. Hamilton

"The Laughing Corpse was one of the newest clubs in the District. Vampires are sexy. I'll admit that. But funny? I don't think so. Apparently, I was in the minority. A line stretched away from the club, curling round the block."

So I am addicted to this series now. How did I miss this one before? I'm loving the fact this series began over 15 years ago. I see things that may have influenced the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) series and some other popular paranormal/urban fantasy series. It reminds me of when I decide to take a walk down memory lane with one of my favorite authors by reading some of their earlier works and being surprised to find out they were just as good then as the ones being written now. That is not always the case.

"I think, Anita Blake, that you need to remember why people fear the dark. I will see that very soon you have a visitor to you window. Some dark night when you are fast asleep in you warm, safe bed. Something evil will creep into your room. I will earn your respect, if that is the way you want it." (Said by Senora Dominga Salvador)

In this book Anita is up against a powerful witch, Senora Dominga Salvador, a killer zombie, and of course the powers of seduction emitted by JC (Jean-Claude). Very fun read with lots of action set in a fun world.

I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
