Product Description

From Amazon

As Incubus Dreams opens, Anita Blake may be America's most powerful vampire hunter and necromancer. So it's no surprise that the Regional Preternatural Crime Investigation Team seeks her assistance when a St. Louis stripper is murdered and the evidence points to unusual serial killers: a group of seven vampires. It appears a master vampire has gone rogue--and may prove too powerful for Anita Blake, even if she can gain help from not only her vampire consort, Master of the City Jean-Claude, but from the wereleopard king Micah, her other lover, and the alpha werewolf Richard, her bitter ex-lover.

It would be an exaggeration to say that Laurell K. Hamilton's Incubus Dreams (2004) is just one sex scene after another. This twelth novel in her bestselling Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series presents a wedding, a murder, and a lot of relationship angst before getting down and dirty on page 89; and the sex scenes pause on page 377 to let the mystery plot resume. The series deftly blends elements of alternate history, horror, romance, erotica, and mystery, but anyone reading Incubus Dreams for the murder plot is going to be frustrated. However, Incubus Dreams is a considerably stronger and more interesting book than its talky predecessor, Cerulean Sins, and fans will enjoy the many new developments in Anita's complicated love life. --Cynthia Ward

Interview with the Vampire Writer
With two bestselling series featuring supernatural heroines under her belt, one has to wonder if Laurell K. Hamilton is truly in touch with a world beyond ours. Hamilton spoke with Amazon.com about her work, her characters, and her plans for the future. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Fans of bestseller Hamilton's vampire hunter Anita Blake will be thrilled with at least one aspect of this transitional 12th installment (after 2003's Cerulean Sins): Anita finally resolves her relationships with werewolf ex-boyfriend Richard Zeeman and vampire boyfriend Jean-Claude. They'll also be pleased to see Anita finally get comfortable with her own behavior, despite crossing many lines—sexual, psychological, professional, paranormal—that she previously thought uncrossable. In her role as vampire-executioner and preternatural-crime investigator, Anita pursues a band of serial-killing vampires who prey on female strippers, but much of the novel focuses on her responsibilities as a leader in St. Louis's vampiric-lycanthropic community. Those obligations are often intertwined with sex, the basic tool of her ever-growing magical powers. The ardeur that compels her to have sex in order to fuel her two "power triumvirates" must now be fed with increasing frequency. Old foes threaten as new enemies emerge. There's plenty of life (and undeath) left in this series, and Hamilton's imagination is apparently as inexhaustible as her heroine's supernatural capacity for coupling.

From Booklist

The latest Anita Blake novel is almost twice the length of the previous one, Cerulean Sins (2003). Per usual, Anita is surrounded by more lovers than she can handle. She wrestles with the decision to consummate her relationship with her pomme de sang, Nathaniel, who wants to be more than just the outlet of her ardeur (intense supernatural desire). Before she knows it, she has taken two other lovers as well. Her work as an animator is heating up as well--a couple wants her to reanimate their slain son, something she resists doing, and she has also been tapped by the police to investigate the murders of several strippers, which may be the work of a vampire. No one can top Hamilton's steamy supernatural sex scenes, but there are so many in this installment that one can't help but wish Hamilton had edited them a bit (they often go on for dozens of pages) in favor of the murder mystery. Not the strongest Anita Blake outing, but Hamilton's devoted fan base will be clamoring for it. Kristine Huntley

Review

Death and gore galore ... Hamilton writes with ease and vigour ... Great fun SHIVERS I was enthralled - a departure from the usual type of vampire tale which will have a wide appeal to any reader hunting for both chills and fun Andre Norton The fights are fast and furious, with guns roaring, claws rending and wisecracks by the dozen.

From AudioFile

Anita Blake, vampire hunter, is back. In this adventure, a vampire serial killer is murdering strippers, and Anita is called in to assist police with the investigation. As Anita juggles lovers and relationships, frequent coupling refuels her "power triumvirates," which are in need of constant attention. Cynthia Holloway's performance captures an insouciant, wisecracking Anita, whose libido is her principal motivation. However, Holloway uses the same sassy bad-girl tones that work well in early scenes for the overly long, steamy sex scenes, and that "attitude" misses the mark. Laurell K. Hamilton's twelfth visit to the vampiric/lycanthropic wilds of St.Louis is ponderous to the point of tedious, and desperately in need of a good edit. Even so, Hamilton's fans will clamor for more.
