Format: Audible Digital

Audiobook Description:

With the highly acclaimed Obsidian Butterfly, Laurell K. Hamilton's vampire hunter, Anita Blake, came into her own. She survived a supernatural onslaught unlike any she had ever faced before - and she did it without the two men in her life.

Now, six months have passed since Anita has seen either Jean-Claude or Richard. Six months of celibacy. Six months of indecision. Six months of danger. For her body carries the marks of both vampire and werewolf, and until the triumvirate is consummated, all three remain vulnerable.

But when a kidnapper targets innocents that Anita has sworn to protect, she needs all the help she can get. In an earth-shattering union, Anita, Jean-Claude, and Richard merge the marks - and melt into one another. Suddenly, Anita can harness both their powers. She can feel their hearts...hear their thoughts...know their hungers....

Nothing can save Anita from the twist of fate that draws her ever closer to the brink of humanity - to finally surrendering to the bloodlust, the beast, and the desire transforming her body and consuming her soul.

    The beginning of the end. I was fascinated with the whole human servant thing. I was fascinated with the werewolf added into the fray thing - talk about a messy love life! I thought that her powers increasing was fine - they had to if she was hanging around the kinds of monsters that were in her co... more...

    TOTALLY SPOILERY, BEWARE

    Hamilton managed to work in at least two Triple Word Scores with use of terms that resonate well with genre fans: ouroboros (remember Scully's tattoo, anyone?) and oubliette (yay! Jareth would be so pleased). But the newest term created for the Blakeverse? Panwere... more...

    [My opinion, for what it‘s worth...exactly:]

    With the exception of Micah, I've read the entire Anita Blake series up to this point (Blood Noir, #16) and, in the aforementioned opinion, Obsidian Butterfly was the last decent book, after which the series should have been renamed Anita Blake, Vampire H...

    This is probably my favorite book in the series. I loved loved loved this one. I know many people think that after Obsidien Butterfly things went down hill and there was nothing but sex sex sex all the time, but if you look at the emotions involved and Anita's blossoming power in this book it is mor... more...

    oh dear. After possibly the best, tightest, most suspenseful Anita Blake book yet (Obsidian Butterfly), we get this WEIRD story. At first I liked it because Anita's back in St Louis and it looks like she's reuniting with both JC and Richard and apparently everybody is going to be OK with that (after... more...

    I have to say going into this book I was a little worries as many of the reviews focused on how the series was going down hill; however, I must say that those reviewers were WRONG. I think this series has just started to really get into the "good stuff." A few questioned just who Anita w... more...

    I was very disappointed from the last book with Edward. But now the “old†Laurell is back. Very fast story with a lot of action, blood, horror scences and a lot of erotic and sex. She increased the amount of all. Someone will be horrified of this book, because some scense are very shocking, especial... more...

    I started this because someone gave it to me and I needed something to read that wasn't sad. But it was unreadable. None of the characters are likable. They have no depth. There is no humor and the sex scenes are just stupid. There is nothing to recommend it. I have trouble giving even one star. Why... more...
