Really, by now, Anita Blake should know better.
Marmee Noir, ancient mother of all vampires, picks this weekend to make a move. Somehow she has cut the connection that binds Anita and Jean-Claude, leaving Jean-Claude unable to sense what is happening. Dangerous even as she sleeps, buried in darkness for a thousand years somewhere beneath the old country of Europe, Marmee Noir reaches out toward power. She has attacked Anita before, but never like this. In Anita she senses what she needs to make her enemies tremble.
Love in vein: listen to more tales of Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter.

"What The Da Vinci Code did for the religious thriller, the Anita Blake series has done for the vampire novel." (USA Today)
I love Laurell K. Hamilton. I've been reading the Anita and Mery series since the beginning. She never disappoints me. It is a racy book, not for those faint of heart. It's loaded with sex and action!
My one complaint, the reader is slower than molasses! I had to put my Ipod on 'Faster' just to even listen to her!
This book seemed shorter and less dynamic than Hamilton's other Anita Blake novels. I miss the professional Vampire Slayer Anita Blake but the arder seems the way to go for Hamilton in the storyline...another story of going away with the one of the boys (like in Micah)but it was better than I thought it would be after reading the reviews. The worst part of the Audio was the narrator who was boring, flat affect, and just plain dull. Couldn't tell when she switched from Anita to Jason or other characters...at times the monotone voice was so annoying it became distracting.
Read the books in order because the earlier Laurell Hamilton , Anita Blake series, were her best.
At last-LKH is in the club! such a fun author, her books are perfect for audio and her narrators are always spot on. Anita is a great character. She collects the most fab men! The stories are always entertaining, steamy, fast paced and distinctive. Anita is one of a kind and it's a pleasure following her adventures.
The other series is a blast as well....good to have it all in one place. Thanks Audible!
yeah its was a great story
Jason coues he really is cool in this one
when anita wake up and find she sleep with three guys
laugh so hard
read and love it
I'm a Sci-Fi Fan, during a road trip we stopped by a bookstore and I found an audiobook of L. K. Hamiltion's "Cerulean Sins" & I was hooked.
L. K. Hamilton has been able to keep Anita Blake interesting and constantly flowing into a new plateau and beyond to the next. She has a knack of involving new personalities and showing new sides to older characters in a refreshing way that keeps such series from getting monotonous. She steps out and away from the past few books and focuses on just a few characters in this novel. Anita gets down and dirty in this book; Hamilton delves deep into each ones psyche in Blood Noir, pushes her way through and pulls no punches. This is one of my top choices from this series.
Just plain boring. It was chapter 37 before it got even mildly interesting and that didn't last too long. I agree that the reader was awful. She added nothing to the book although with a plot this bad I am not sure even a good reader could have saved it.
I couldn't get past the narrator to actually listen to the story. Her rendition of Jean Claude is horrid, and I turned it off. I'll buy the book instead.
