Overview


Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series is a literary sensation, thanks to its strong female hero, well-fleshed (both literally and literarily) characters and unabashed attitude toward sex. The world Hamilton has created is powerfully compelling and stunningly complex—and it gets deeper, 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?

The collection includes essay introductions by Hamilton, giving context and extra insight into each essay’s subject.

I had hoped that there were stories by other authors in the Anita Blake universe. I probably should have read further. Oh, well. As it is, I don't really care about other authors's commentaries or Laurell's responses. I didn't enjoy it.

I also thought this was a book comprised of short stories about the ardour written by different authors. I AM SO GLAD I got the sample. I often just buy the books sight unseen, and this is a new nook I'm learning to navigate. It appears to be an analyses of why the novel's work and are so ground breaking. I can appreciate the attempt to quell any criticisms from non fans-but I already know and I enjoy the -"world" without the in depth workings of it. Sorta how I like how my car goes without having to understand everything about the engine.
