SynopsisEdit

The power to give life. The power to take it away. Anita Blake possesses both. By day, she works as a necromancer, reanimating the dead—for a price. But her nights are another story altogether. She is the well-known huntress—fittingly known by the vampires as The Executioner.

A cobra that now very very much wants to make St. Louis’ top animator its next meal.
