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?
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?
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!
