In the thralls of supernatural passion, Anita Blake faces a most human dilemma.
The uniquely complicated life of Anita Blake, the St. Louis based necromancer, gets even more complicated when Anita discovers she may be pregnant in the 14th novel in bestseller Hamilton's vampire hunter series (Micah, etc.). Her sexual magic powers require multiple lovers, so there are six potential fathers. One possible dad, werewolf Richard, has trouble understanding that, baby or not, Anita's still a federal marshal who raises the dead and executes vampires. In addition, terrifying, life-threatening obstetrical challenges are involved, since the maybe-mommy has to deal with vampirism and several strains of lycanthropy coursing through her veins. That Anita has no detecting to do may disappoint some fans, but playing hostess to a gathering of North American vampire Masters of the City, ostensibly in town for a performance by a vampiric ballet troupe, keeps her plenty busy. When the vampire ballet takes the stage toward the end, several new plot elements emerge. The very lack of a finale suggests that there's no end in sight for this fabulously imagined series.

I lovvvvee these books!
These are the best. Soooo hard to put down!
Horrible Ending (No Spoilers)
I keep reading this series hoping it will get better or at least go back to being as good as the first three or four books. But it just keeps getting worse and worse.
The worst part of this book was the ending. It was abrupt and of the countless subplots it only wrapped up one. And wrapped it up poorly at that.
Please, just pick a single plot or a character to follow! Having 20 half developed and half finished themes throughout the book is just plan bad.
I miss the mystery solver! The lastfew have been fragmented and only about sex. I miss the good old days when the books had a plot, a mystery to solve and a lead to the next book. Im getting bored :(
