Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter is a series of urban fantasy novels, short stories, and comic books by Laurell K. Hamilton. The sexual content of the Anita Blake novels became both explicit and sadomasochistic in nature as the series progressed. Since Hamilton's vampires and lycanthropes are largely invulnerable and heal very quickly, it leaves them open to explore the more extreme aspects of BDSM. Concepts of slavery are present in various vampire relationships. Critical reception to the series has been mixed to positive, with Monsters and Critics praising many of the books in the series. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch praised Kiss the Dead while RT Book Reviews overall panned the novel. Skin Trade is the seventeenth book in the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series of horror, mystery, and erotica novels. The book begins quite nicely with nearly three hundred pages without any sexual encounters, which is quite a difference from previous titles in the series. There is some solid detective work, few rank squabbles in the police force and an encounter with the Vegas own brand of lycanthropes, in the person of tiger queen Bibiana. Anita in her search for truth is joined by her own psychotic trio of supernatural exterminators and renowned US marshals, Edward, Olaf and Bernardo and the occasional hints to all the men in her life are pretty much kept in the background.
