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:

In the thralls of supernatural passion, Anita Blake faces a most human dilemma.

Chirpee, April 12, 2007 (view all comments by Chirpee)
I enjoyed this book. I know a lot of people have a problem with the more erotic turn the Anita Blake books have taken, but Hamilton has been doing things that way for a few books now, and it seems to me like it's one of the things she's very good at. I also think Anita is more humanized now, she has personal issues added to the mix now, instead of just the shoot 'em up kind of issues, it adds a new depth to the characters and the stories. I didn't think this book was a stand-out in the series, like "Narcissus in Chains," but I thought it progressed Anita's story along nicely, without repeating the older books too much. It also raised some interesting questions about what exactly Anita is turning into, which makes me look forward to "The Harlequin" all the more.
