Some zombies are raised. Others must be put down. Just ask Anita Blake.
Before now, she would have considered them merely off-putting, never dangerous. Before now, she had never heard of any of them causing human beings to perish in agony. But that’s all changed.
Micah's estranged father lies dying, rotting away inside from some strange ailment that has his doctors whispering about "zombie disease".
Anita makes her living off of zombies - but these aren’t the kind she knows so well. These creatures hunt in daylight, and are as fast and strong as vampires. If they bite you, you become just like them. And round and round it goes....
Where will it stop?
Even Anita Blake doesn’t know.

This book was a much better performance than the previous "kiss the Dead" published by the author, the Narrator Kimberly Alexis did an excellent job with voice narration bringing to life the characters we all know and love.
the story plot over several books within the series have become less cohesive; has many of the characters are changing from their Norms i find that they are evolving into less ideal and easily compromising versions of themselves, I find that some of the primary characters are not who i thought them to be.
Micah for example, i was greatly disappointed in Micah, not for the violence he use to gather the animal groups to Him, but for having sex with the many women of these groups.the relationship between Micah Anita and Nathanael was the most loving and balance relationship of the group. i felt like i was lied to by Micah, setting him on a pedestal of ideals, thinking his orverall commitment to the relationship between him. Anita and Nathanael was one of faithfulness were Anita and Nathanael been the only one for him mind, body and soul. but finding out that he like so many of her other men will sleep with anyone if the situation presents itself.
Affliction was a great improvement to the series, but the overall story seems a repeat of previous books, only placed on a grander scale, i believe the series should come to an end soon before it becomes a greater disappointment to its fans.
I have a love of the classics and fantasy horror.
I love anything by Laurell K. Hamilton's. Her creation of Anita Blake reaches out to my interwoman that I am in charge. The book explores a different avenue into the lives of St. Louis and capativating as usual.
I had a hard time putting this one down like her book Black Obsidian.
All - love the visualization she gives to the sex and the violence.
When Micah discovers that his father is living the same life he does. This moment echos to me "why have I waited so long to see my family?" My other favorite part was the visual in the wording of the first zombie apocalypis.
I suggest anyone interested start with book1 and read them all.
YES, definitely! I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. The added bonus of the extra sound affects was great! I wish more audio books would add these listening touches to their books! The storyline by itself was still great! I'm a big Anita Blake fan and I'm so glad this one lived up to the Anita character.
It's got to be when Anita was comforting Micah in the hallway - even though Anita was so angry with him, she was willing to put off talking about it and instead comfort him because of his dad's illness. She winded up talking to him about it anyhow, but only since he talked her into telling him what had her so upset.
I've listened to all of the Anita Blake books and Kimberly has done an excellent job with each and every one of them. Her voice is smooth and is so easy to listen to.
Yes I wanted to listen to it all in one sitting but it was way too long to do this with - so I listened to it over the course of 3 days.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book - if I was going to say anything negative about this book it would have to be that sometimes it tended to take on a "classroom lecture series" throughout the book - very interested but a little too preachy at times. But I still loved the book!
Yes I will. I enjoyed this book a lot! Couldnt stop listening! Zombie Apocalypse, Action, action and More Action!
Death is the Stopest Stop there is....
Kimberly just IS Anita Blake! Nough Said!
Def! except for sleep I nearlt did just that = )
Worth the credit/Money = )
I always enjoy her books in audio.
Hard to say without giving any spoilers.
Kimberly Alexis has always sounded to me like what I think Anita would really sound like. I really liked the story, it felt developed nicely. This was a great listen!
Let me start by saying Kimberly Alexis did a great job. There are WAY TOO MANY characters in this series so she gets props for keeping it together. The story is a good one but it's buried under too many pages that talk about "curly hair is hard to manage"..."he does so much weightlifting"... it's bad. Every chapter has a section on hair. And then there are the sex scenes... OH BROTHER... I love a good sex scene but there there is a sex scene that last three chapters. It's a bit much. It doesn't help with the story at all. I found myself skipping parts to get back to the real story. And the ending... she builds it up to be the zombie war of the century but it turns out to be the complete opposite.
This is the second audio book for me. It was great! Will be getting more! Very addicting!
The only thing I didn't like was the background music and sound affects! It was too distracting! Hard for me to consentrate on the story!
