Maybe I'm giving 5 stars because so many of the last books in the series I read have been mediocre at best. But this is the Anita Blake I fell in love with. This had a crime for Anita to solve, brought back the villain vampire Vittorio, and Edward (along with Bernardo and Otto). And no long, drawn-out boring sex scenes that have marred the last few books.

Although as usual, the big finish comes at the very end of the book.

Speaking of sex scenes, does Hamilton always have to have some sort of blood play in all of them. Anita never seems to have loving sex. There is always something that forces her to have rough sex. Rough sex is fine, but like anything else, there should be some other things on the menu.

I thought with the title Skin Trade, there would be a vamp or other creature who could jump bodies. But as far as I can tell it was titled this because someone is killing strippers.

I was surprised at how the book ended. The Mother of Darkness made an appearance and We learn about Vittorio's origin. We also learn more about the different colored tigers and why the MoD placed some inside Anita. The Jinn, creatures of air also were featured, although they are powerful, they were dealt with rather quickly.

Hamilton slowly sets some things up, but then deals with them abruptly and always rushes the endings. I'm not sure what will be happening next. I wouldn't have ended this book so abruptly.

Spoilers below, so stop here if you don't want to read about how the book ends.

I couldn't believe that not only did Hamilton kill off Vittorio just when he became more interesting by being the Father of Day, but she also seemed to kill of the Mother of Darkness, as well. That's two really Big Bads in the same book. It seemed too easy. They finally found the MoD's resting place and firebombed it. Bam! Done.

Anita uses the ardeur on Vittorio which distracts him enough so the weretigers under his control are free. They attack and kill him. This made more sense. He is not coming back from this unless he has some super power to put his essence into another body. But that would be lame since something like that wasn't even hinted at.

Perhaps one or both will come back in future books.

I am planning on going ahead and reading the next books that feature Edward, and I think those will get me up-to-date. But once that happens, I won't be reading any more Laurell Hamilton books. Too poorly edited, too repititious. ( )

I really loved Laurell K. Hamilton's early Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series books but I did feel like she lost the thread a bit in the middle of the series. I am glad to say that it seems like she is focusing more on the story line and less on the sex of late which makes the books better in my opinion. I think Anita is a great character and Laurell K. Hamilton can write a great plot but her overly complicated sex scenes can somewhat take away from the book. ( )

Finally Hamilton gets back to the story rather than a free for all sex session lasting 18 chapters. Don't get me wrong I love "smut" just as much as the next girl but it was nice to see a return to the Anita Blake books I first fell in love with. A thoroughly enjoyable read. ( )

"Skin Trade" is a solid effort from a first-class storyteller.

I'd worked my share of serial killer cases, but none of the killers had ever mailed me a human head.
