GRANDMOTHER'S LIBRARY: Bullet by Laurell K. Hamilton

This is the most recent of the the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter books.  I started to say that she has gotten away from the vampire hunting, but she actually was trying to get the "mother of all vampires" (Mommy Noir).. she didn't actually go after her physically, but was able to deflect the 'father of death' vampire metaphysically by turning a 'blood bath' into a 'love bath'.  (too many graphic details..)
Yes, Anita Blake has gone a LONG way from the little gal out to get the bad guys.. she no longer raises the dead, although that is still her job: we just don't see this in the story line. 
Richard, former werewolf lover, is back in the novel, actually being 'good'.. which it totally out of character of him.  We've seen Anita, Richard, and others evolve throughout the series, but I'm a fan of the original couple of books.  I don't quite know what to think about this series any longer, except that I definitely would not allow my kids to read it. What happened to the Anita Blake that had high morals?  She sure didn't last long.
