Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series is
a literary sensation, thanks to its strong female hero,
well-fleshed (both literally and literally) characters and
unabashed attitude toward sex. The world Hamilton has
created is powerfully compelling and stunningly complex--and
it gets deeper and richer, and more perilous, with every book.
Straddling the series' dominant themes of sex and power,
Ardeur gives Anita fans a deeper look into the dynamics,
both personal political, that have kept readers fascinated
throughout the run of the series. Why is the ardeur the very
best thing that could have happened to Anita, personally
(aside from all the sex it requires her to have with hot
men)? How is Anita's alternate United States a logical legal
extension of our own? And as the series continues, what
other bargains might Anita have to make with herself and
others in order to keep the people she loves safe from harm?
