Anita’s friend Edward—assassin of the undead—has ended up across the pond. Ireland isn’t supposed to have vamps, but a string of victims with fang marks on their necks says otherwise. Since Anita’s necromancy isn’t welcome on the Emerald Isle, Edward gets to have all the fun, even though Anita’s vampire to call, Damian, knows firsthand the horrors of a sadistic vampire who calls Ireland home… When the new vampires start breaking one of their kind’s few strict taboos, Anita is finally invited to the party. And Damian, despite his horrible past, is willing to be by her side. Some say love is a great motivator, but Anita has seen hatred get the job done, too. And she’ll take what she can get…

Laurell K. Hamilton
Laurell K. Hamilton was born in Heber Springs, Arkansas but grew up in Sims, Indiana, a hamlet with a population of about one hundred souls. Laurell's mother died in a car crash in 1969, after which time her grandmother held the household together. Her mother's death, her grandmother's role in raising her, and having grown up with no men in the home are "the three things that made who I am," she says. She still believes she would have grown up to be a writer regardless. In 1994, Laurell published her first Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter book, GUILTY PLEASURES, and she hasn't stopped writing since. She has written nine additional Anita Blake books, and in October, 2000, began the New York Times bestselling Meredith Gentry series for Ballantine Books. She says she writes because to not write -- even for her own enjoyment -- would be like not breathing. It is just something she has to do. She now resides in St. Louis, Missouri with her husband, her young daughter, three pug dogs, and an ever-fluctuating assortment of fish.
