It was the middle of November. I was supposed to be out jogging, but instead I was sitting at my breakfast table talking about men, sex, werewolves, vampires, and that thing that most unmarried but sexually active women fear most....

Anita Blake needs to be concentrating on a dangerous situation: the ardeur, the sexual power that flows between Anita and Jean-Claude, Master Vampire of the City, and Richard, the volatile werewolf who loves her passionately, is reaching new levels, perhaps evolving into something altogether new.

The ardeur seems to be choosing new lovers for Anita, acting with a will of its own. As Jean-Claude says, the ardeur is hunting powerful prey. The unexpected effect of this is that Jean-Claude's own power as a master vampire has grown to new levels - and Richard, never predictable, is changing, too.

But as the days pass, Anita's less interested in vampire politics than in an ancient, ordinary dread she shares with women down the ages: she may be pregnant. And if she is, whether the father is a vampire, a werewolf, or someone else entirely, she knows perfectly well that being a Federal Marshal known for raising the dead and executing vampires is no way to bring up a baby.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becci | 2/15/2014

    " Were's, vamps, magic, zombies... and to top it all off, a new villain that makes the previous dozen seem like weiners. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brinda | 2/2/2014

    " This book didn't have any of what drew me into the series to begin with. Disappointing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Tisdale | 1/30/2014

    " I'd loved the end and parts of the rest were wonderful, but there were parts that just got bogged down with the same issues over and over again. I love Anita's character, but she got annoying at times during this book. I wish I could have liked it more since there was a lot of good drama, but I wanted strangle Anita every now and then. Also, Hamilton has gotten more carried away with sex each book. I wish she'd go back to the original books that were plot driven with lots of action and suspense doused with a little sexual tension, rather than try and see how many men she can put in one woman's bed. If I hadn't started with the first book I don't think I'd still be reading these. However, I'm one of those people that have to finish series no matter what so I feel obligated to keep reading. "

    " How many more levels can the ardeur possibly reach? We have now firmly entered the world of porn. Although there is still a smidgen of storyline going on somewhere in the sidelines, who cares? It's sex galore. Multiple partners, in front of others, all kind of positions - now if Anita would stop being so stuck up about the whole thing, it would make some sense. Sometimes I just wanted to bitch-slap her. But, then, I am not really complaining, I read this in record time and immediately started the next one in the series.... Hamilton must have a really interesting sex life. Oh, and can someone please put down Richard? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darlene | 1/3/2014

    " I love her books and this is one of the best. Steamy and complex and fast paced "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deanna | 12/29/2013

    " I read a review that let me know this book was about vampire politics and sex and not the old Anita. Oddly, since I knew that I enjoyed the book better. It seems that I wasn't expecting more so I enjoyed the story better... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Renfairegoddess | 12/25/2013

    " Well developed character's in the earlier books in the series. About the 5th book or so in the "Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter" series, it turns into smut, but by then I was so engrossed in the lives of the character's I just had to keep reading the series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tiah | 12/25/2013

    " This book took me almost 3 months to finish. I have nothing good to say about it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lucy Gray | 12/19/2013

    " I wanted some light fiction to get me through the cold winter. Taking me a while to recall who all the characters are but I have been lent the next 6 or so in the series so I have plenty to get my teeth into (so to speak). "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Petra | 12/19/2013

    " After reading this I decided to give up on Ms. Hamilton. The books had moved too far from the original nature of the character. I'm done. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maica | 11/1/2013

    " Good book for wanton sex. Not much else. Good fluff book. :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Reb | 10/13/2013

    " It was good to see her go back to the Vamp politics "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cassie Reed | 10/7/2013

    " I've lost count on how many times I've reread this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ariel | 2/14/2013

    " Again character overload, weak plot, and more of Anita starting to cry and moan ALL the time. I feel like the issues and conflicts that arise in previous books, NEVER get brought back up or resolved. Starting to lose hope.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie (Alphas Authors Books Oh My) | 11/12/2012

    " Another great book from Laurell. I loved it!! Alot of people complain about them being soft porn and all I can say about that is bring it on. It is rare that you get enough plot in Erotica so when you get great sex scenes in Urban Fantasy it is a BIG bonus!! Keep up the great writing Laurell!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cris | 6/28/2012

    " Not my favorite Anita Blake book because not much happens. Anita's powers are growing (along with everyone tied to her) and this book explores that. That's about it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 3/9/2012

    " I really liked it. Can not wait to read what happens next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 9/17/2011

    " I love this series and Anita Blake is one of my all-time favorite characters, but this book just didn't quite do it for me. Reading it is a necessity if you're keeping up with the series, but it's just not what I'd call one of the best Anita Blake books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacey | 5/11/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. Some of the other Anita Blake series can drag on but this one held my attention. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rochelle | 4/14/2011

    " My fav of the Anita Blake series... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Whitney | 3/28/2011

    " This book was mainly about sex. I kept reading it to get to the story line...but as it turned out, it didn't really have one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 3/22/2011

    " I remember this one being really disgusting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beáta | 3/20/2011

    " Strácala som sa v postavách, doteraz neviem kolko levov tam bolo a ani to ktorí patrili Augustinovi a ktorí boli domáci. Scénu s baletným predstavením by som si rada pozrela aj v skutocnosti. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristi | 3/10/2011

    " Best threesome scene written out that I have ever read. The power they fed off of others in the room, while doing it...well, it made me want to smoke a ciggerate when I was done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 3/2/2011

    " I agree that there was a lot of arguing but I think it needed to be done for the development of the characters.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 2/22/2011

    " I own this book from the Anita Blake series. To be honest, I haven't fully red it because this series has several books to it and I want to read them from Book #1 to the last. But I do have books from it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karla | 2/12/2011

    " I didn't hate this one as much as the previous ones. I cannot let myself stop reading them b/c I still have 2 that I own. Note to self...just b/c a series starts out good does not mean you should invest in further volumes... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 2/10/2011

    " It's good but swinging more towards the sex. Although Danse Macabre does seem to be exploring Anita's developing powers more. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Teresa | 2/9/2011

    " I loved the books at the start of this series. The last few books haven't really had a story. The "themes" have been sex, sex and more sex. How about very detailed sex. I keep hoping the next book is going to be back on track with a good storyline. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adriana | 1/26/2011

    " Addicted to these books, each one just keeps getting better and better! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrica | 1/18/2011

    " Meredith Gentry is a half-human half-fey princess of the Unseelie Court. Love this series!! "
