    "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."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Micah to be better than the print version?

    The wrong narrator can ruin an audio book, and that's the problem with this version of Micah. I highly recommend just reading the book and saving your dollars or credits. This series is gritty and steamy. It's about vampires, lycanthropes, necromancy, and sex. Unfortunately, the narrator for this one Anita Blake book sounds like a Minnesota Sunday school teacher. The cheerful motherly voice speaking about zombies and murder and passionate sex is just too jarring. Definitely read the book for this one. If you're an audio book only kind of person, you can just skip this book. It's a one off story with little development in it. It was a bonus book, after a fashion. You won't miss any continuity by passing over it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Rey Colette?

    Either of the previous Anita Blake series narrators would have been great for this book. Rey Colette would be a great narrator for a different genre entirely. Her style is entirely too sweet and innocent sounding for a gritty and dark series like Anita Blake. It's a voice perfect for children's books, not this.In addition, she doesn't do a very good job with male voices. She takes their voices too far. For example, Anita's two lovers in this story, Micah and Nathaniel, wind up sounding like Eeyore and Piglet from Winnie the Pooh.
