I purchased this via ebook for my nook for $6.99 and it only has 101 pages (including title pages, dedication pages,intro)! I've read all the anita blake books up to this point and they are getting worse and worse. the more recent ones were like reading pornos, less vampire and lycanthrope actions and more sex and this ardeur thing. It got to the point where I skip pages and pages of the sex stuff (the way its written gets repeatative and boring). This book actually had more "action" than sex, but then again it was less than a hundred pages of story. I'm disappointed. Lauren Hamilton likes to repeat her lines in each book so when you have a "thin" book, you don't really get anything new. Nothing original in this one...just more blah.

I thought my Nook had not downloaded the whole novel, being as the previous novel was 700 pages. $6.99 plus tax for a short story easily read in an hour? I feel let down. The short story really went no where. There was a little insight into Micah and his life pre Anita... although not much. I want my money back.

While sometimes I think that Hamilton can be long-winded, and could cut back on some of the unnecessary details.....listing this story in the same category as her other novels that are between 400-700 pages is just wrong! I was expecting to get my money's worth! I am very angry at having to pay for a novel and only getting a short story. I feel robbed!

I'll be sure to check the reviews before i buy another ebook. I can't believe they charged 6.99 for 100 pages.

Okay, now I will say that up until this book, I was very happy with the development of the series and with the writing in each book. With this one, however, it was entirely too short and a lot of tricks were used in order to make it look longer than it actually was. I am very unhappy with this, especially since the book was the same price as the rest of the series. Good information and additional items came out of it, but still, it was entirely too short.

It was a decent enough story to keep with the rest of the Anita Blake stories, but was far from worth the money for only about 100 pages. If I had realized how short it was, I would not have spent that much money on it.

This is the last Laurel K. Hamilton book I'll purchase or read. Way too much money for such a short story that wasn't very interesting. And OMG...total overkill on the metaphysical BS and sex!! I like an erotic story as much as the next person but Hamilton has managed to make sex boring! Plus...I can't see any of Anita's "relationships" develop beyond sex. The men in her life aren't appealing and Anita is barely likable. Stick a fork in me; I'm SO done with this series!

It was a decent enough story but should have been added to one of your short story collections. To rip people off by using a larger font,double spacing and adding extra pages then calling it a novel is just lazy and wrong. If you want to read it save your cash and check it out from the library!

Only a 101 pages?! What a rip off. I want my money back on this one, they should not be charging just as much for the other books when this one is so short.

This was a short book comared to Laurell Hamilton's normal books, BUT... the was a necessary book and it gave insight to Micah's past. The series needed a story on Micah!!

My son purchased the first 2 books of the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter Series for me for Christmas. I am on book 16 of the series, this particular book Micah is worth the read, but not the best book in the series. It's entertaining, the writing is average.

I've been becoming increasingly disappointed with the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series. I started out reading these and loved the story line and character development. However, as the books have gone on and on, they seem to rely on explicit sex scenes for content. After reading this book and the following book, I'm done with the series.

Ok... So yes it is only 101 pages, but I still thought it was well.writen, an over all..... a great book! I just wish I didnt have to pay 7.99 for it! I have to read in order lol!

This story was short, but I enjoyed learning about Micah. I think he is one of my favorite characters.I didn't get the concept that anita would be nervous being alone with him. I think that was somewhat of a stretch. I'd reccomend this series to anyone.

I saw that a lot of people left bad reviews for micah and almost did not buy the book but because I have the entire series I felt the need to get this one to and I am glad I did. Maybe some people didn't understand that micah was all about pulling his character together rather then set how the rest of the series was set. The book wasn't as long as I'd have liked but from the beginning micah has been a calm cool character and so his background couldn't be much more then that. I enjoyed getting to know micah better.

Huh, L. K. Hamilton published a shorter book in the Anita Blake series. "Micah" is a return to the "raise a zombie, deal with the zombie's case" kind of storytelling that I was missing. Yeah, there's a few chapters of sex, but Anita is focused more on the necromantic part of her job in this one, with some relationship digging balancing out the book rather than over-whelming it. After the big bricks masquerading as the last books, it felt like I reached the end just as she should be starting sub plot 3 or something. It did help flesh out Micah a bit more... er well, made him more than just flesh. ;) Of course I wouldn't have objected to it being longer, but the preview of "Danse Macabre" has me excited for the next one, too. Glad I picked it up when I spotted it in the store.

I got it for free. Wouldn't have paid to read it anyway (this series has really taken a nosedive) but it was entertaining. I'm sick of hearing about how long Anita's hair is getting because Micah will cut his hair if she does. Blah!

I did not expect to like Micah, since I don¿t like the character, but I really did. I enjoyed Anita actually having a plot involving zombie raising again. And there was only one sex scene, halleluja. That may sound strange, but after the last full length book, I¿d about had enough.

This is not one of my favorite book in the Anita Blake series. I could have taken it as a short story.

I don't know why I keep reading these. Its like looking at a bloody car wreck -- you just can't look away.This series is dead. There are no longer any plots, just personal problems, angst, whining and lots and lots of badly written, boring sex. Anita has become selfish, nasty and annoying. All the good characters have been hidden, transformed into nasty lunatics, or castrated into adoring lap dogs for Anita.The newest addition to the adoring chorus is the worst character in the series: Micah. In an attempt to boost his popularity (the most hated ABVH character) and to make lots of money for little work - we have the short story dressed up and sold as a novel. The font is huge, there are many blank pages and lots of white space to eek it out for 280 pages.There is almost no plot, Micah and Anita go away on a job -- she doesn't actually work any more, but when she does she brings her squeeze with her to the graveyard no less. The plot, such as it is, is dropped as soon as the drama has been squeezed out of it. There is the obligatory Anita anger and whining, and of course the bad sex scene, with the elephantine Micah.

This is the first 'Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter' book I've read, though it is #13 in the series. I loved it so much, I am going back to #1 and will start from the beginning.I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Anita Blake's adventures from her own perspective. Nothing like taking a quite extraordinary existence [vampire hunter / animator (as in 're-animating/raising the dead') / federal marshal] and relating to it like it's an everyday thing. I found her thoughts and comments quite hilarious and even intuitive.Add a bit of steamy, if not raunchy, if not unusual, sex to the mix, as well as some adventures of a metaphysical nature, and we've got a winner. There was even some love in there - yes, true love.Though it was an easy read, and appeared kind of 'fluffy' on the surface, I found it to be sort of profound underneath it all. A great quote from the book:"We got our bags settled, and off we went. We had FBI to meet and a zombie to raise. Raising the dead was easy; love was hard."Gotta love these characters and gotta love this author!!

Wonderful series. Hard to put down. The world of were beasts mixed with the real world in an unusual way. If you haven't tried Hamilton's books - start at the beginning and you'll have a great time with Anita and all of her men.

It was a nice story about Anita's long weekend, but I must say, the plot (or lack there of) left a bit to be desired. It felt more like an excerpt, or a novella, then a novel.
Darla on LibraryThing 3 months ago
Yes, I'm surprised by the 4 stars, too. Particularly after reading Mrs. Giggles' review, I expected more of the same dreck we've been getting from LKH for the past several books. And there was still some of that tone of juvenile snickering about sex which gets on my last nerve, and some of her way-over-used phrases (spill, frex). But the angst is considerably reduced, and Anita's actually doing her job instead of bed-hopping. The POTM escalation didn't bug me, because that's been happening all along in the series. I'll still never like Micah--I absolutely cannot stand a yes-man. Seriously, something about the whole concept just creeps me out, and makes me want to hurt them. I suppose I can accept that that's what Anita wants--or maybe I'm just so relieved she's not whining about it that I don't care anymore. Anyway. I do understand the people who felt cheated for paying $8 for a novella, but I bought it used, and I'd already been warned about the length. So I'll get the next book. Not the new, full-price hardcover, but I'll get it. Maybe used again, or maybe from Zooba.

It was a good filler to help pass the time to Danse Macabre.
