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-the-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. (Feb. 28) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

In A Stroke of Midnight, Meredith Gentry, P.I., appears in her role as Princess Meredith NicEssus, coheir to her aunt, the Queen of Air and Darkness. Meredith spends a frenetic 24 hours attempting to solve a murder while coupling obsessively in her effort to achieve pregnancy and become absolute heir to her aunt. The listener learns Merry is descended from five fertility goddesses, and each graphically described sex act brings life and magic back to Faerie, while granting powers to her partners. By the end, it is clear that Merry herself is approaching invincibility. Micah, a novella from the "Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter/Executioner" series, brings Anita to Philadelphia. Another necromancer backs out of a job where he was to restore life and voice to a federal witness whose testimony is needed in a murder investigation. It's a short trip, so only a single lover, Micah, accompanies her. The zombie witness event goes horribly wrong, but the tryst with Micah is perfect. Graphic sex and a violent cemetery battle provide the elements Hamilton's listeners seem to appreciate most. This short work offers some character development and more plot than her previous novels. Listening to Rey Colette perform is a distinct pleasure; Laural Merlington does an equally fine job with Stroke of Midnight. These selections are recommended for collections that include erotica and where Hamilton is popular.-Janet Martin, FirstHealth of the Carolinas, Pinehurst, NC Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
