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.

I'm blown away by the performance of the reader for this story. I loved the voices that she provided for each character. As far as the story line I enjoyed the twisting in Anita's attitude during this particular book. I'm glad that she backed down from some of the pissing contests. I look forward to the next book.
I've always enjoyed reading laurell k. Hamilton. This was my first time listening to one of her stories and somehow I thought that it was even more enjoyable than reading.
The producers really went above and beyond with the music and the narrator was absolutely fabulous.
Good story line.
I have enjoyed all the Anita Blake books. This really shows how to mix life (her life) love and yet kill zombies. Hamilton has surprised me with her stories and how she keeps building Anita's friendships and lovers. 4 more days till the next book and I can't wait.
A great continuation of the story line. Kept my interest thru the entire story, which is sometimes difficult with a series that this involved. Looking forward to more.
I do not like the music. When a climactic moment starts music is piped in and it takes away from the words. I listen to a lot audio books and every time that music starts I remember that I don't like it.
I've read and listened to all the books. The thing I noticed is in the last seven or eight books is the dialogue is fairly repetitious. It seems like a good part of the book is Anita explaining herself and her lovers. Then her fighting about who is the good guys. I would like more plot and less of that. So this kind of dialogue stands out more in the audio version than the paper back version. Maybe it's because in the paper form I can get through it faster.
Her voice is great. I have no issues with the audio.
I wouldn't mind if the author wrote a series based on one of the clans. I couldn't get into the fairy series but lots of people love that one.
This book was, for me, the most enjoyable of the recent Anita series. There was a better balance of story and romance scenes.
Live on Ranch & I have a lot of time to listen to books. Love books that are Action-Mysteries-Fantasy-supernatural, with a little romance 2.
Okay, Okay.. I get it. I get it, "She does" a lot of people. But, the last few books all I hear is nothing but Depictions, Definitions and Justifications of Bondage, Poly Sex, Bi-Sexual, Homosexual acts, etc..... Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy listening to stories with good sex scenes though I do prefer sex I can relate to, but still, a good sex scene of any form is nice, but the writer is making all sex boring and Sooo repetitive. Plus, the characters can't just "have a feel".. it seems each Feeling, look ,or expression, on each character has to be explained, examined and defined, in such pains taking detail. Sigh.. it is just getting old.
I miss the good old days where it was all action packed stories filled with mystery, monsters and magic. Where is the action??? I do not think I will bother with the next book in this series. I miss the good old days (earlier books) filled with action pack stories with good characters with depth.
Only good thing I have to say, is I love the Reader (VO Artist).
