As consultant to the Regional Preternatural Crime Investigation Unit, Anita Blake is called in on what appears to be a case involving a serial killer - a vampire serial killer - who may be preying on strippers. She's sure that none of the local vamps are responsible, but her judgement may be clouded by a conflict of interests. For she is, after all, the consort of Jean-Claude, the ever-intoxicating Master Vampire of the City - something both her human friends and her ex, the alpha werewolf Richard, are quick to point out. Surrounded by suspicion and overwhelmed by her attempts to control her own primal lusts for vampire, werewolf and shapeshifter, Anita is about to be pushed to her limits - and beyond.

Sense I never got the book, how can I rate it? And nobody contacted me after my first inquiry to find out what happened to the book. The only response I received was that it could take 30 days. Now it has been over 45 days and no book. If this is the way you do business then maybe I should take my business elswhere and not refer you to my friends and family. If that doesn't matter to you maybe you should just leave the business.

I liked this book because of the realization of the love shared and the constant commitment brought on by all the characters when Anita has to FEED so much! In the end I can see where this could have been an end to Laurell's series but, she couldn't just stop there....what about MICAH...next.

If you like a good story along with a little excitement Laurell K. Hamilton is definitely your author. Anita Blake is both a compelling and frustrating character. Her life just gets more intersting each book.

Excellent book; lots of twists and turns. Lots of food for her future books. I cannot wait to read the next one. Thumbs up.
Publishers Weekly, 2004-09-13 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. Agent, Merrilee Heifetz at Writers House. (Oct. 5) Forecast: The trend toward emphasizing the erotic may lose some established fans, but is likely to gain the author many more new readers. A 14-city author tour will help keep the momentum going. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
