Publisher Comments:

Raising the dead is easy. Love is hard...

There are lots of reasons to raise the dead — some private, some public. In this case, the feds have a witness who died before he could speak on the record. They want him raised so his testimony can be taken. So here I am, on a plane to Philadelphia, flying off to do my job.

But I'm not alone. Micah is with me. Micah, head of the St. Louis wereleopard pard. King to my Queen. The only one of my lovers who can stir my blood with just a glance from his chartreuse cat's eyes. I was happy to have him at my side.

Until he mentioned that this will be our first time alone together. No Master Vampire. No Alpha Werewolf. Just me and Micah. And all my fears and doubts...

Review:

"Hamilton (Incubus Dreams) delivers a highly palatable portion of what makes her series heroine, federal marshal and vampire-hunter Anita Blake, a bestseller: equal portions hot sex and supernatural crime fighting — with a dollop of old-fashioned male-female melodrama — served up in a world where new were-animals have their own crisis hotline. Filling in for a colleague, Anita travels to Philadelphia to reanimate a deceased federal witness, accompanied by Micah, her wereleopard lover. The jaunt serves as a chance for them to share some rare one-on-one time — without any of her five other lovers around — which Anita fears is not necessarily a good thing. Even worse, since her magic energy has grown unexpectedly strong, she suspects this won't be your run-of-the-mill reincarnation. A good entry point for the uninitiated, this offering provides further insight into both characters and their universe. A bonus excerpt will whet fans' appetites for the 13th full-length novel in the series, Danse Macabre, coming this June." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Anita flies to St. Louis, where she faces the most difficult zombie raising of her life — and her first night alone with Micah. This original work includes a special preview of Hamilton's upcoming hardcover Danse Macabre, on sale in July. Original.

Synopsis:

Vampire hunter Anita Blake is called on to raise the dead-while trying to suppress her ever-growing feelings for a certain wereleopard.

Wow..this book was a real disappointment. It didn't really serve any purpose that I can identify in moving the series forward. Buy this book ONLY if you're trying to complete the series. Otherwise, you will be disappointed.

I love the Anita Blake books, sex and all. I think Anita's sexuality has evolved with the books, and her problems with reconciling her morals with what she needs to do to feed the ardeur add to the books, not take away from them, it isn't less plot, it's different, more personal plot with, admittedly, less shoot 'em up type action. However, Micah was not Hamilton's strongest work. It almost seems like she wrote the book in a day, possibly as a start to, or as part of another book, then realized it almost stood by itself, and decided to let her publishers charge 7.99 a pop for an incomplete novel. It is only the second time I have been disappointed by Hamilton. I have loved all of her other books, with the exception of Obsidian Butterfly, and Micah hasn't kept me from buying Danse Macabre, which I am currently enjoying.

While I love all the Anita Blake novels, it is true that Micah is very different from her previous novels. Each chapter has only a few pages, the book was good but could have been better with more story.
