[Editor's Note: This is a combined review with BLOOD NOIR]--Vampire hunter Anita Blake returns in Hamilton’s popular series. Narrator Cynthia Holloway does little voicing, and this approach works well because most of the story’s characters are male, and male voices are a challenge for her. Still, her wonderful delivery has lots of inflection and feeling, and her treatment of the erotic scenes in Hamilton's work is exquisite. The book is replete with a multitude of “were-animals”—from rats to lions, tigers, and leopards, as well as the traditional werewolf. Holloway’s use of a variant pronunciation of this key word form throughout is a distraction. Still, this production will succeed with lovers of vampire fantasy, especially those who enjoy Hamilton’s treatment of eroticism. M.C. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2008]
