Book Description

Dec 28 2007 Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Series (Book 13)
There are lots of reasons to raise the dead - some private, some public. In this case, the feds have a witness who died before he could speak on the record. They want him raised so his testimony can be taken. So here I am, on a plane to Philadelphia, flying off to do my job. But I’m not alone. Micah is with me. Micah, head of the St. Louis wereleopard pard. King to my Queen. The only one of my lovers who can stir my blood with just a glance from his chartreuse cat’s eyes. I was happy to have him at my side. Until he mentioned that this will be our first time alone together. No Master Vampire. No Alpha Werewolf. Just me and Micah. And all my fears and doubts…

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Hamilton (Incubus Dreams) delivers a highly palatable portion of what makes her series heroine, federal marshal and vampire-hunter Anita Blake, a bestseller: equal portions hot sex and supernatural crime fighting—with a dollop of old-fashioned male-female melodrama—served up in a world where new were-animals have their own crisis hotline. Filling in for a colleague, Anita travels to Philadelphia to reanimate a deceased federal witness, accompanied by Micah, her wereleopard lover. The jaunt serves as a chance for them to share some rare one-on-one time—without any of her five other lovers around—which Anita fears is not necessarily a good thing. Even worse, since her magic energy has grown unexpectedly strong, she suspects this won't be your run-of-th e-mill reincarnation. A good entry point for the uninitiated, this offering provides further insight into both characters and their universe. A bonus excerpt will whet fans' appetites for the 13th full-length novel in the series, Danse Macabre, coming this June.

1.0 out of 5 stars The magnificent member Feb. 22 2007
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Micah. The one character in the Anita Blake series that nobody really wants to see more of -- really, we've heard too much about his physique already.

And because of this, Laurell K. Hamilton has turned out a very short novella, "Micah," to show off her latest creation and his enormous member. "Micah" has many of the same problem as her latest books -- too much emphasis on sex, annoying attitude -- but it's also horribly boring and unnecessary.

Anita Blake is woken when a coworker calls her. A federal witness died before he could be put on the stand, and the coworker can't go, since his wife is suffering a miscarriage. So Anita hops on a plane. But since she needs the occasional quickie to feed the ardeur, her boyfriend Micah tags along.

Though Anita has been shacking up with Micah for the last year or so, she actually doesn't know much about him -- he's a wereleopard, has kitty-cat eyes, and that's about all. But as they spend time alone together (no Jean-Claude, alas, and no Richard), Anita begins to find out what her boyfriend's past contains.

Here's a warning for potential readers: "Micah" is short. Very short. Too short for its size. It strains to fill the few hundred pages of its length. In fact, it's more like a longish short story than a novella, really.

And at the end of the day, "Micah" commits that cardinal sin -- it's completely unnecessary. There's not much of a plot, no exposition, no new revelations worth knowing. There isn't even any excitement until the ending of the book, and that peters out quickly.

Even Hamilton doesn't seem terribly enthusiastic. She's going through the motions: unimaginative (and sometimes gross) sex, lots of Anita whinging, and soap-opera angst about Micah (horrors!) being a good boyfriend.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing March 19 2006
By Jane
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After reading all of Laurell Hamilton's books and especially after her last book Incubus Dreams, to say that Micah is a disappointment is like describing a Tsunami as a ripple! Short on story development, short on descriptive content, short on character development, short on Micah's history and short on the love between Micah, Nathaniel and Anita Blake. I thought this was going to be about Micah. I think perhaps a page was devoted to his story. This book looks like it was written by a bored but well-known novelist who sells everything written based on previous novels. A big disappointment and so very, very short.

1.0 out of 5 stars Total Ripoff March 15 2006
By Kiwi
Format:Mass Market Paperback
250 odd pages of double spaced type with 2 to 3 blank pages between each chapter. Minimal plot. Reads more like (a) a short story (in which case it would have been a good one) or (b) a template with the spaces to be filled out. Paying $10 for this is a ripoff.
I guess Laurell is (a) bored with writing Anita Blake novels or (b) stuck for ideas and with a hard publishing deadline. Either way, there's no way this should have been published as it was. As a die-hard Anita Blake fan, I was very disappointed. My recommendation - don't waste your money - if you really want to read this, take an hour and read it in the bookshop - an hour is all it'll take and you'll feel a lot happier that if you'd wasted your money.
Shame, this is the first of Laurell Hamilton's books I've been disappointed with. And worse, I feel that I've been ripped off. You've been warned!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Time to let this series go. March 2 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This "Book" was so bad that it prompted me to write my first review. Short and boring. I read it in a single sitting and the general feeling I was getting from the last couple of books proved itself to me in this one. The sex is taking over and the actual Vampire Hunting is fading into the background.

This reminds me of the old GOR books by John Norman. First it was paragraphs, then pages, then chapters and finally an entire book devoted to sex. There was no "story" in this book. The plot is never explored. Everything just sort of "happens".

As Anita approaches godhood, it becomes more difficult to find strong enough foes to pit her against. LKH seems to be losing it. I really doubt that I'll be buying anymore books by her. Pity but I can't watch another writer I liked turn to assembly line publishing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pathetic May 30 2006
By Seraph
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I picked this up despite bad reviews from my husband and co-workers and was still disappointed. Once again, Ms. Hamilton has published a 'story' which ended up being little more than a sex scene with a 2 page plot summary at the end.

I was hopeful that she'd editted out at least some of the pointless fluff that's messed up her last few novels, since this one looked so short, but is seems like she did the exact opposite. It's rare to have an entire novel with absolutely no story, but somehow this one achieves that.

I guess that's an accomplishment of sorts...

1.0 out of 5 stars Short story March 9 2006
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've read the reviews here and I agree with two of them. This book was woefully short.
The page count was a mere 245 pages. Between each chapter (which there are 12) was 2-3 blank pages. So you've lost easily 24 pages from the book right there. I'm not sure if it was double spaced, but it was at least 1.5.
Short doesn't even give an indication of it. Plot wise, none really there. We learn how Micah became a wereleopard. And Anita gets more powerful (some how just bam, hey look, I can do something different. What did she do, gain a level in Necromancer?)
Any fan out there will feel cheated shelling out the $10 for the book, as well as the fact that there was nothing in there that really moved things along. Anita still have her self-loathing over her lovers in her life. Still beats herself up for pages and pages. Still loses control of her anger at the drop of a hat. Heck, the hat gets touched and she's angry.
Don't waste your money on this unless you must have a complete collection. Go to the library and read it there. It shouldn't take more then 4-5 hours if you're a slow reader that gets distracted easily.
Its too bad too, cause I have enjoyed her books before. It just felt like she needed the money, and banged it out for a quick buck. Or that she got a fan to write the short story.
I wouldn't give it less then 1. I could see maybe 1.5 cause I do like the world.

Did Ms. Hamilton go on vacation and raise an empty headed zombie to write this particular book for her? Sure seems so. No plot, no interesting dialogue. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst book in the series so far.
Do not waste your money on this piteful attempt at an Anita Blake novel. It is a waste of time reading it, and a gross insult to LHK's fans with this peice of work.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a waste of time
There is no point to this book. It was probably written for a contribution to an anthrology but greediness caused it to be published as a stand alone. Awful.
