Publisher Comments:

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 being a vampire executioner is no way to bring up a baby...

Review:

"Hamilton just keeps getting better and better." St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Review:

"Hamilton really does come off like the genre's answer to Henry Miller." Denver Post

Review:

"While the plot may be all but missing...there is plenty of interaction between Anita and her lovers....With its charged vampire ballets and complicated couplings, Danse Macabre does all that and more." Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Synopsis:

The newest volume in Hamilton's "New York Times" bestselling series finds Anita less interested in vampire politics than she is in an ancient, ordinary dread shared by women through the ages: she may be pregnant. Includes an excerpt from Hamilton's upcoming hardcover, "The Harlequin."

Synopsis:

Fans have been waiting to sink their fangs into an all-new Anita Blake hardcover in the New York Times bestselling series.

These days, Anita Blake is 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, he knows perfectly well that being a Federal Marshal known for raising the dead and being a vampire executioner, is no way to bring up a baby.

The Anita Blake novels are my absolute favorite series. It is true that Laurell K. Hamilton started off the series with pretty much no sexual content and now all the newer books are full of it but it does seem to go with the story. Her books just keep getting better and better as far as I am concerned and Danse Macabre is her best yet. I hope she never stops writing on this series, my only complaint is that the books don't get published fast enough for me. Some interesting things happened in this book that makes me think the next book, coming out in June, will be even better still.

To be perfectly honest I haven't read the book yet and am looking forward to doing so immensly. I have recently just purchased the book and have just started.
I can honestly say it will not disappoint any of Hamiltons fans. And if Laurell happends to read this I would like to say your truly have a gift and I hope the series never ends, call it wishful thinking but i hope you don't. Looking forward to giving you a full rating
