Vampire hunter Anita Blake finds her life is more complicated than ever, caught as she is between her obligations to the living-and the undead.
Fans of bestseller Hamilton's vampire hunter Anita Blake will be thrilled with at least one aspect of this transitional 12th installment (after 2003's Cerulean Sins): Anita finally resolves her relationships with werewolf ex-boyfriend Richard Zeeman and vampire boyfriend Jean-Claude. They'll also be pleased to see Anita finally get comfortable with her own behavior, despite crossing many lines sexual, psychological, professional, paranormal that she previously thought uncrossable. In her role as vampire-executioner and preternatural-crime investigator, Anita pursues a band of serial-killing vampires who prey on female strippers, but much of the novel focuses on her responsibilities as a leader in St. Louis's vampiric-lycanthropic community. Those obligations are often intertwined with sex, the basic tool of her ever-growing magical powers. The ardeur that compels her to have sex in order to fuel her two "power triumvirates" must now be fed with increasing frequency. Old foes threaten as new enemies emerge. There's plenty of life (and undeath) left in this series, and Hamilton's imagination is apparently as inexhaustible as her heroine's supernatural capacity for coupling.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Laurell's books and as long as she keeps writing the Anita Blake stories I will always read her books. If she starts a new series I'll read those too!
This is not showing the wrong cover. This is the original cover that the book came out with in 2004. This whole series is fabulous. I can't get enough.
I can't stop reading Hamiltons books. She's absolutely by far one of the best Authors. I love to read is a hobby, and only Hamiltons books take me to that world where anything is possible and quiet exciting. Any of her books I highly recommend. Thank you Laurell Hamilton for taking me to this world and forget about Earth.
