Laurell K. Hamilton is an excellent writer. She can describe the action and scenes in the books so vividialy. You can smell what Anita Blake does. You feel everything she does. You get so intransend into the story. Her words just flow. You don't want to put her books down till your down. When you read it, you are there in it. It's amazing. I love the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series. My daughter-in-law got me started on them and now, you just wait for the next one to come out all the time. Fabulous!!!

If this had been the first book of this series I read it would also have been the last. But I started at the beginning with Guilty Pleasures. The main character Anita Blake has always walked a delicate line for me, bordering on unlikeable and unrelatable...face it, bitchy. The supernatural detective/magical badass parts of this series grabbed my attention and kept it book after book - many I could hardly put down until they were done. Unfortunately, Incubus Dreams has a little bit of the detective story, the supernatural fantasy and a whole lot of talk talk talk, erotic weird sadistic animal and vampire sex, lets talk a LOT more about our feelings and all the characters feelings and lets even try to put a LOT of dialogue in the middle of an erotic sex scene so that it drags on for 30 pages. I really don't mind some steamy sex talk but the author has really run amuck here in my opinion. The last 4-5 books in this series have really been sliding downhill. I cannot bring myself to read another one of her books now, the only way I finished this one was by skipping over pages and pages of drivel.

Anita Blake just may be America's most powerful vampire hunter and necromancer, so when a St. Louis stripper is murdered and the evidence points to a group of seven vampires the St. Louis police once again call for her assistance. It seems a master vampire has gone rogue and may prove too powerful for Anita Blake, even if she can gain help from the Master of the City Jean-Claude, the were leopard king Micah her other lover, and the alpha werewolf Richard her bitter ex-lover. Much of the novel focuses on her responsibilities as a leader in St. Louis's vampiric-lycanthropic community. It's not all about the previous characters though; there are lots of interesting new vamps and were?s that you're going to love to love and love to hate. The plot revolves strongly around Anita's blending of her executioner role, her vampire authority and abilities, and her relationships with the local police. This book is a continued evolution of a series and being that it is one in a long series, not all of the answers are going to be revealed if the series is to continue, so you are left with a lot of questions at the end of this novel!

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "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." Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review A Day" by , "So, if these folks aren't actually all darkness and gore, and if sadomasochistic group sex is not a new rage among American housewives, then why exactly is this book doing so well? It's certainly not the unsatisfying serial-killer vampire plot that creeps up very seldomly between descriptions of bloody sex scenes that last longer than Sting on a tantric bender....Maybe it's the season. It's October, it's chilly, it's almost Halloween; maybe people are craving a little mindless vampire-on-wereleopard action. For all of our sake, I hope so." (read the entire New Republic review)
"Review" by , "[B]etween spells of grisly melodrama and enjoyable monsterology, the main device here is that irritable Anita gets along with nobody and bitches at great length with everyone she meets, at times for whole chapters of filler — and it's not even midlife crisis."
"Review" by , "[W]hen no one is writhing on the bathroom floor or trying to talk someone else to death, Hamilton maintains a terrific pace with suspense, revenge and heart-pounding endings. Plotting and pace are her strengths, followed in short order by character."
"Review" by , "Hamilton gives [the serial killer plot] a nice twist near the end....The primary plot, with its Jane Austen-like matches and mismatches, and the metaphysical power struggle between vampires, adds much needed humor and humanity...to the novel."
"Review" by , "The final chapters become a page-turning adventure as Anita and the police zero in on the perpetrators. Fans of the series will not be disappointed; recommended."
"Synopsis" by , The New York Times bestselling Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series continues with an all-new novel. Anita is pushed to her limits — both professionally and passionately — when she is called in on what appears to be a case involving a vampire serial killer preying on strippers.
