Then, I picked up the book Magic Bites. Gotta love the title. Then I read it and really liked the character Kate Daniels. But, now that I've read the first three and the novella, I have to wait until GASP June of next year! (of course that's when Eclipse come out in theaters, so it will be a great month!)
So I read that series twice and Ilona Andrews paid a wonderful tribute to Laurell K. Hamilton. So, I picked up her first book and thought it was pretty cool. I am now reading Blue Moon, which is somewhere in the middle of the series.
Great news is that she's got TONS of Anita Blake Vampire Hunter books in the series! Maybe they will get me to Nov. 20 and the New Moon premiere.
