Listener Opinions

    " As a trucker over the road, this audio book kept me interested. I listen on xm radio. I drive from 10pm-8am. What happened to Olaf? He was way out there, bring him back as a vampire nut bag in all his glory and let Anita handle him, but make it good to where she almost can't handle him. Thank L.K. Hamilton for keeping me company over those dark nights thoroughly entertained. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andee Browne | 2/19/2014

    " Probably the last truly good installment of the Anita Blake series before it descends into vampire/werewolf/necromancer porn hell. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Myk | 1/13/2014

    " You can tell Hamilton does not like the desert southwest by how she describes it. I liked the story except the things she got wrong about Albuquerque, like the road Lomas is Lomos in her story. It was great having an Edward heavy tale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ixi | 12/16/2013

    " loved this one in the series! I adore Edward "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April Villone | 12/2/2013

    " One of my favorite of the series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindy | 11/26/2013

    " Overall, this was a refreshing change of pace in the series. I am glad it got away from Anita's relationships, and focused on Edward instead. This was a glimpse of the old Anita that I originally liked. But I didn't like the ending--not all the loose ends were tied up, and the fight with the big bad guy seemed too easy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandi Dalton | 11/20/2013

    " Ugh this was not a easy read. It just lacked SOMETHING. Idk. I could not read it for any length of time. While reading it I wanted to go do other things. It just did not hold my attention. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 11/3/2013

    " This book is very different to all the others as it focuses on Anita and Edwards relationship. Edward comes to call in his favour that Anita owed him. This book reveals more about Edward and his life beyond his work. The storyline is brilliant as always and this time the case brings both Anita and Edward into a even more dangerous situation. The lack of both Richard and Jean-Claude brings this book down a bit in my opinion as I always find they bring that extra star quality. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Misty | 10/19/2013

    " I'm still enjoying Anita's character development, and it was very interesting to see Edward in his own f'd up world. I'm also very happy that this series is so long, since I just want more and more of it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirsty~Vhixen | 10/8/2013

    " having not read the spoilers i was shocked reading this one. this is all about Edward/Ted. you find out what his life's like when he's not in St Louis. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 SavannahNorway | 10/6/2013

    " One of my fav book I do not know how many times I have read and re-read this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 M.R. Gott | 9/27/2013

    " If Bogart was better armed, and a woman up against the undead this is how it would unfold. Book ninth in the Anita Blake series, and my favorite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Book | 9/11/2013

    " I liked this book, but not as much because the main characters where not in this book as much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deanna | 8/25/2013

    " I loved this book! It was super exciting and kept me up all night so I could finish it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Minor | 8/19/2013

    " It was time for Edwards book. Glad we got to know him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bree | 5/19/2013

    " Absolutely loved this story, it's one of my favorites. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Will | 5/16/2013

    " The best Anita Blake book by far. They series starts to go downhill after this book and changes from a horror/fantasy series to a trashy romance series with vampires and werewolves. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 mpfrom | 4/1/2013

    " Probably my favorite of the series so far. I've always loved Edward, so a book that concentrated on that was a refreshing change in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Esther | 10/20/2012

    " This is my favourite Anita Blake book. It is the last one before the series gets really weird. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Belinda | 10/2/2012

    " I was just glad I finished the book there was a few times i didn't think i would. I think I might not read any more??? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki Seldon | 9/4/2012

    " In my estimation, the best of the series. This one is not cluttered up with dozens of lovers that Anita has to manage. Just Anita doing what she does best, being a badass. If you like the series but get a bit fatigued by Anita's crowded and overly complicated love life, you WILL like this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 4/3/2012

    " IMHO, this is where the series started going downhill... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 5/1/2011

    " After book 8, I pretty much gave up on Hamilton. I'd read erotica if I just wanted a book full of sex. It definitely lacks of alot of plot and Anita Blake just becomes more interested in her harem of men. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leann | 4/28/2011

    " This is my absolute favorite Anita Blake book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 4/26/2011

    " my fav anita book..edward is simply amazing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam | 4/9/2011

    " Edward Called in the favor That was owed ti him By Anita and Edward Shocked Anita with a few suprises of His own for her . Also He had a Seriel killer murder to solve That was not done by a Human . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leila | 4/5/2011

    " The best of the Anita Blake books (though I enjoyed Blue Moon and the earlier books as well). The horror is really horrifying. The monsters truly scary. The focus on Anita and Edward was fantastic. And I enjoyed the extra characters like, Olaf. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 4/4/2011

    " i really loved seeing edwards 'world' ... it was nice to see a diff side of him & to see he is not all monster "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 4/2/2011

    " i only want to say this is one of my favorite books in the series. It mostly has to with Edward, Olaf and sexy sexy Berarndo. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eve | 4/2/2011

    " This is definitely one of the best in this series; didn't care for the previous one so much. But this one was good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maegan | 3/31/2011

    " I didn't think I'd like this book because the "boys" didn't really play a part in it, but I really enjoyed it! I was pretty indifferent to Edward--was neither a fan but didn't dislike him, but from the start of this book, my interest into his character was peaked. "
