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...

Review:

"Bestseller Hamilton's Anita Blake, police consultant, executioner, necromancer, private eye, and wereleopard protector, returns in her amorous 10th adventure, driven more by conflicting desires for the lovers she neglected in her last outing, Obsidian Butterfly, than by the urge to solve any mystery....Whom should she choose, werewolf Richard or vampire Jean-Claude? Or should she take a new lover? Who cares?....As she becomes more like the fantastic creatures she protects or kills, [Anita Blake], alas, doesn't get any more interesting as a character. Her obsessions with lust serve mainly to overwhelm a rickety plot. Blake needs to put her clothes back on and get back to work. Too much flesh and not enough plot leads to the old but so true saying, 'Less is more.'" Publishers Weekly

Review:

"With plenty of steamy sex and graphic violence, this is engaging reading for vampire cultists." Booklist

Review:

"Romantic thrills, erotic chills and the sexiest vampire in the business." Jayne Ann Krentz

Review:

"With a heroine as sharp as a stake and slick as a silver bullet, Laurell K. Hamilton sucks you into her fascinating world like a vampire's kiss." J. D. Robb

Review:

"I've never read a writer with a more fertile imagination — and fewer inhibitions about using it." Diana Gabaldon
