In this Anita Blake novel, Laurell K. Hamilton unleashes the mother of all bombshells -- the sexy necromancer and vampire executioner could be with child! But with seven supernatural studs as regular lovers, just who is the father?
After a missed period, Anita takes a home pregnancy test, and it comes up positive. And, as usual with Anita, complications arise at the very worst of times. One of her lovers, the Master Vampire Jean-Claude, is throwing a party for a traveling dance company made up almost entirely of undead bloodsuckers -- and he has invited numerous other Master Vampires to attend. The historic occasion is the largest gathering of Master Vampires in American history and could be a pivotal event in the attempts to unite the fragmented factions. But with so many commanding supernatural beings gathered in one place, Anita's ardeur -- a supernatural sexual hunger that is always looking to be sated -- begins evolving once again, and actively seeking out the most powerful lovers…
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Laurell K. Hamilton should be profoundly touched. The genre-transcendent success of her Anita Blake novels has spawned a whole new subgenre of dark fantasy, romance, and mystery hybrids. Just as Marmee Noir is the creator of the vampiric civilization in the Anita Blake universe, Hamilton too is the very first of her kind -- and Danse Macabre is a perfect example of her continuing mastery, combining knotty supernatural plotlines with unadulterated eroticism. Cold shower advised after reading. Paul Goat Allen
