Great, but abridged

I expected this was the full version but noticed some missing segments. Kimberly Alexis does a much better job than the original voice talent.

This is a solid start to the lengthy Anita Blake series. Anita is a multi talented, fiesty young woman with multiple resources to help her fight supernatural crime. An investigator by day and an animator by night, she is often called in by the local police department to assist with their otherworldly investigations. Her reputation for slaying vampires does not seem to deter the city's master vampire, Jean Claude, from pursuing her. This is a solid recipe for excitement, mystery, action, and paranormal intrigue.

Personally, i am 5 books into the series and planning to purchase more. I believe there are close to 20 novels in total. One of my favorite details in this series is that the story takes place in St. Louis, Missouri - my home town! Laurell Hamilton often incorporates various St. Louis neighborhoods in her writing. Imagining my city overrun with vampires, zombies, and ghouls is a unique listening experience!
