Synopses & Reviews

"[O]ne the more fascinating fictional heroines since Scarlet O'Hara and a hell of a lot more fun than most....[T]he author is back on track with the best Blake yet." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
"To say Anita has her hands full is an understatement....Hamilton's complex, enthralling world is utterly absorbing, and Anita's many fans will be thrilled to see her back in action." Booklist
"Anita is a smart gal who can think fast and shoot even faster....Earlier books in the series focused on a mystery rather than Anita's complex private life and were much more interesting." Library Journal
"Ms. Hamilton's writing is quite good and I believe she could have produced an excellent book with the serial killer plot, if she would have gotten down to business and developed the plot, instead of turning out page after dreary page of vampire sex." Barb Wright, BookReporter.com
"Hits the ground running and doesn't let up...erotic." St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Vampire hunter Anita Blake learns what it's like to be at the new end of a centuries-old bloodline-and just how far she'll let herself get pushed around.
