Book Giveaway! One copy of Ardeur up for grabs!

With the upcoming release of the nineteenth Anita Blake book in June, Smart Pop, has released Ardeur: 14 Writers on the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter Series, a collection of essays edited by Hamilton herself. Ardeur explores a variety of topics relating to the Anita Blake series, including why the ardeur is the best thing that could have happened to Anita and how Anita was never meant to have sex in the books

And to add greater insight into the series, Hamilton has written an introduction for each essay that let’s us see a little further into her own world and Anita’s.

Some of the authors who have contributed to the book are Lilith Saintcrow, Cathy Clamp & Sharon Ashwood. With such big names coming together to write about the famous Anita Blake, what fan can resist this collection?

Ardeur Blurb

14 Writers on the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter Series

Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series is a literary sensation, thanks to its strong female hero, well-fleshed (both literally and literarily) characters and unabashed attitude toward sex. The world Hamilton has created is powerfully compelling and stunningly complex—and it gets deeper and richer, and more perilous, with every book.

Straddling the series’ dominant themes of sex and power, Ardeur gives Anita fans a deeper look into the dynamics, both personal political, that have kept readers fascinated throughout the run of the series. Why is the ardeur the very best thing that could have happened to Anita, personally (aside from all the sex it requires her to have with hot men)? How is Anita’s alternate United States a logical legal extension of our own? And as the series continues, what other bargains might Anita have to make with herself and others in order to keep the people she loves safe from harm?

More Info

Smart Pop has a few copies of Ardeur to giveaway and they have offered Amberkatze's Book Blog readers the chance to win one of them!

My favorite is the killing dance its one of the few in the series that balanced personal plot with action and had a strong police presence which i miss in the newer books. Also it had Edward he just makes everything better.

Deirdre said...
