Mercy Blade

And the second of my two vampire hunter romance action adventure books. I liked this one better. More action. More plot. the lead character is not in and of herself more interesting then the last one... or the Anita Blake characters for that matter. The characters have pretty interchangeable personalities. They invariably have some extraordinary powers that make them lethal to the bad supernaturals, and useful to he powerful (but good)ones. Sexually, they are good girls, or good girl wannabes who find themselves drawn into a web of romantic and sexual intrigue. These are, at bottom, romances... but Faith Hunter delivers on the promise of action that the other two authors mentioned keep to a minimum.
