Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the highly-acclaimed Obsidian Butterfly, Laurell K. Hamilton?s vampire hunter, Anita Blake, came into her own. She survived a supernatural onslaught unlike any she had ever faced before — and she did it without the two men in her life.

Now, six months have passed since Anita has seen either Jean-Claude or Richard. Six months of celibacy. Six months of indecision. Six months of danger. For her body carries the marks of both vampire and werewolf, and until the triumvirate is consummated, all three remain vulnerable.

But when a kidnapper targets innocents that Anita has sworn to protect, she needs all the help she can get. In a earth-shattering union, Anita, Jean-Claude, and Richard merge the marks — and melt into one another. Suddenly, Anita can harness both their powers. She can feel their hearts...hear their thoughts...know their hungers...

Nothing can save Anita from a twist of fate that draws her ever closer to the brink of humanity — to finally surrender to the bloodlust, the beast, and the desire transforming her body and consuming her soul...

The best of the Anita Blake books. I had almost given up on Laurell K. after Obsidian Butterfly, but this one blew me away.

Anita is still her difficult self, which makes her a great character to follow. The characters are real and alive, the writing is strong and vivid with believable dialog and the situations are exhilarating. Anita shows her real human side when she has trouble handling her pard and members of the lukoi, she finds herself caught between the monsters and humans once again, only now she is clearly on the side of the monsters and one thing is for sure, Anita will do just about anything to help her friends and she has quite a list of followers who will protect her with their lives too. Anita achieves the level of Master Necromancer, enhances her status as human servant to Jean-Claude and acquires a vampire servant of her very own. She also becomes Bolverk of the Thronnos Rokke Clan, Nimir-Ra, (with her own Nimira-Raj), of the Blooddrinkers Pard, and a lycanthrope politician, of sorts. To me, this feels like a transitional book and if this is anything to go by the best is going to get even better!
