Book CoverMelissa‘s review of Micah, book 13 in Laurell K. Hamilton‘s Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series.

“Raising the dead was easy; love was hard…”
There are lots of reasons to raise the dead-some private, some public. In this case, the Feds have a witness who died before he could speak on the record. they want him raised so his testimony can be taken. So here I am, on a plane to Philadelphia, flying off to do my job.

But I’m not alone. Micah is with me. Micah, head of the St. Louis wereleopard pard. King to my Queen. The only one of my lovers who can stir my blood with just a glance from his chartreuse cat’s eyes. I was happy to have him at my side.

Until he mentioned that this will be our first time alone together. No master vampire. No alpha werewolf. Just me and Micah. And all my fears and doubts…

Well, what can I say. This review will be short and sweet.

Larry, Anita’s co-worker, was called for a job in Philly by the Feds. Due to a personal emergency, he calls Anita to sub for him. Anita and Micah fly off, Micah posing as her assistant. She fights the bad guy, raises the dead. Voila, end of story.

This book was a total disappointment. The poor trees that were sacrificed! I could have done without the story completely. All we learned was 1) Micah wants more of Anita 2) Anita is still combating her commitment fears.

Well, I guess that is not completely true, we did learn a little of Micah’s past. But. Well. Yeah, that is all I have to say on this one.

Someone asked how I felt about Micah. I think this quote sums it up:

“It was sort of nice to be the brave one for a change.”

Yeah, just not my cup of tea.

Grade: 2.5

This book is available from Jove. You can buy it here or here in e-book format.

  1. I do have one or two of the books.

    Maybe the series is dying out? Isn’t there like something close to 20 books in this series?
