Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Affliction"

    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.

    "Great production & performance"

    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.

    "Love, zombies and family"

    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.

    "Another great book."

    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.

    "One of her best"

    Loved it... maybe because I am polyamorous and there is so little inclusive literature out there... and Ms. Hamilton simply kicks a**

    Story
    "after book 15 paper book is better"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    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.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    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.


    What three words best describe Kimberly Alexis’s voice?

    Her voice is great. I have no issues with the audio.


    Did Affliction inspire you to do anything?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
