I gave up on [buying] Laurell Hamilton some time back, as her books have devolved into cheap sex scenes apparently caused by the author's relationship going into a meltdown. The first 6 books in this series are great. From then on they seem to turn more and more into porn, starting soft and steadily progressing into hardcore, whereas they used to be a really great exploration of what a world where the paranormal mixes with the normal would be like.

So, basically, I stopped buying them but will st

Micah is a very interesting character. As I’ve already mentioned he is one of my favorite sweeties. Micah and Nathaniel completely rock my world!

Micah was one of my refuges. His arms, his body, his smile. His quiet acceptance of me, violence and all. Now I was back to being scared. Shit.

With that said, this book must have been rushed. Either it was rushed or it took awhile to write because it was…boring. I really dislike writing negative reviews, but this is one of my least favorite books in thi

What a piece of crap. I picked it up at the airport, and I should have left it on the plane.

Recommends it for: People who get a kick out of awful books.
I promised myself I wouldn't read past Obsidian Butterfly, but then I was given this for free and I have to see if it's as awful as I think it's going to be... signs are pointing to yes.

Page 136 edit: The sex, OMG the sex... I don't think I'll ever stop laughing...

Jesusfuck, why do I do this to myself?

I hate Micah and I hate novellas disguised as novels. This was a waste of time and about the point I started hating Anita. Mind you I still buy her books, but I think part of me just wishes she would get shot a spend about three books in a coma.

Micah by Laurell K hamilon, was a fake book. Here we have the 245 page new installment in the Antia Blake series, but it's just a filler… Remember when you were in school, and your teacher assigned you a certain number of page paper to do? But you really didn't have too much to write… So you space it out as far as you can…. That's what Hamilton did for this book. Her books are usually tiny print, words packed into the pages, and STILL long. This has the largest ever typeface, sooo spaced out, bo ...more

If I had to pinpoint the exact moment my heart broke while reading this book, it would have to be when Micah earnestly explains to Anita how he'd been unsuccessful in prior relationships due to the enormous size of his wang. Some women, Anita recognizes astutely, are just not built for such endowments. Luckily, Anita is there for him, to love him in all the ways his previous girlfriend couldn't, and to help him begin the healing process.

To be fair, I read this book after I had already "broken up

horrible!, June 8, 2007


I, admitedly, am a huge fan of Hamilton. Although i think (know) she's a huge guilty pleasure (no pun intended), and always feel a bit embarassed when caught reading one of her books...But, i've never been truly embarassed to be a fan.

Until now.

This book is absolutely horrible. Not a plot in sight. Basically, page after page of Micah (so incredibly boring. worst character, by far). It reads like a penthou

This is really the end of the series for me. This book is just an sexathon between two of the characters. I could have saved my money and suggest you save yours.

Anita gets a call early one morning (does this woman ever get calls during normal business hours?) - it's Larry. His pregnant wife, Tammy, is going into premature labor, and he can't fly out to Philadelphia to raise a zombie for a case. Anita agrees to go, and to restrain the pesky ardeur, she brings along Micah.

If I had spent money on this audiobook, I'd be asking for a refund right about now. Unabridged, this "novel" is a mere 4 hours long. Ellen Degeneres' Seriously...I'm Kidding is the same

Micah is now, and hopefully will always be, my favourite character in the Anita Blake series. He used to bother me because he was always so accepting that Anita had all of these other guys she was dating or screwing, and finally his anger and unease comes out in this very well written novella. It was also refreshing to read one of Hamilton's books that was on the shorter side. It was a nice break from all of the drama and numerous sex scenes that permeate her other books.

I also really liked this

From a blog post I wrote in 2006:

This addition to Laurell K Hamilton's Anita Blake series was disappointing.

I felt like it was mostly a throwaway story. The plot revolved around Anita and her King of the Wereleopards partner, Micah, going to Philadelphia to raise a zombie for a trial. (That sentence really only makes sense to someone who's read some of these books, I realize.) It's their first time being alone and Anita freaks out about the intimacy (which she does in every dang book), we get Mi

I think that this was originally meant to be a short story and ran too long for it so she turned it to a short book if you will. The book before this one was ridiculous with all the emergency sex. Don't get me wrong I enjoy a good sex scene a lot but in the previous book, Incubus Dreams, it was OUT OF CONTROL!! I think in ONE night, Anita had sex like FIVE TIMES!!!! All but one of those 5 scenes had another character either taking part in some way, or watching while laying in bed with Anita and ...more
Fangs for the Fantasy
Firstly, a pertinent point about this book is it’s short – it’s about 100 pages long by my e-reader and a substantial part of that is a preview of Danse Macabre. This is normally where I insert my complaints about how I don’t like novellas, but I’ll pass on it this once.

But I will say if you are going to write a novella, you have little space to actually waste words – your words have to count. You can’t write an 80 page story and then waffle. Unfortunately, this book does waffle – partly with th

Anita is off to Philadelphia to raise a zombie for a court case but with the ardeur being an issue, Micah insists on going with her for the trip. So for the first time, Anita is alone with Micah and that causes problems for her.

I swear I was ready to slap Anita into next week with her childish, moronic behaviour in this 'book'. Micah tries to comfort her over her fear of flying and she takes it as an insult as if he is suggesting that she is weak because she is a girl. She then gets mad at Micah

I was never really interested in Micah character nor thought that the addition of said character was necessary. Of all of Anita's men, Micah is how should I say this - flat? Not likable? Unnecessary?

Whatever that word might be, the meaning is still the same. Why did Hamilton wrote this book? I don't know really but it didn't do any justice to the series. It's just sad how the avid readers of the series seems to be slipping away because of how the story progress from being awesome to this. No wor

I was so pissed off when I got home and opened the book. I already knew it only a hundred pages or so but it was also double spaced! I paid like 5 bucks for something that had less content then a newspaper. The story was the usual "I'm Anita Blake. I dress like a slut because my seven boyfriends like it. Not because I am one. Well, actually, I am but it's not my fault. I have this condition called the aurdor which means I have to hump every hot guy I come across. If your not sexy enough for me t ...more

This is definitely the worst book in the series so far. First of all, what would normally be five chapters or so in any other book has been stretched out (with large margins, extra spacing between words and lines, and a full page for each chapter number) into twelve. Which means that Hamilton's annoying habit of chapter-long disgustingly graphic sex scenes turned into Hamilton's annoying habit of THREE-chapter-long disgustingly graphic sex scenes--only this time with the stupidest, most eye-roll ...more

This was the book that convinced me to not read the Anita Blake series any further. It started going downhill after Obsidian Butterfly, but this got patently ridiculous. At least the Merry Gentry series has always been all about the smut with bits of plot instead of pretending to be a detective series.

Micah is the thirteenth in LKH’s Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series of lots and lots of sex, racy dialog, with one of her lovers, Micah. Damn if I didn’t want to jump into this book to play the role of Micah.

I wanted so much to be Micah in the nice hotel room trip down memory lane when Anita pulled him to her chest. OOO-RAH!! Being “not small” provoked a lot of dialog including the “Old Double Standard” reference to males only wanted sex. “Be careful where you point that, it might go off!! The

This book is like a palate cleansing amuse bouche, a way to reset from the others. The other books have been rife with drama and tension and worry. In fact the last book was absolutely bogged down with the amount of crap she wanted to fit into one story and just ran out of room for the mystery part. In comparison this one was a breath of fresh air. Simple zombie raising gone wonky, with some naughty Micah time on the side.

My only complaint is that it was so short, literally took me a day to rea

Shorter than the rest of the series, it's hard to judge this one on the same scale. Not much happened, but then there wasn't time for much to happen. We learned a bit about Micah and saw an interesting zombie case, but there weren't any real developments above and beyond the blood test results, which were reiterated in the beginning of "Danse Macabre".

Character wise, the only ones we really saw besides Micah and Anita were Larry (via phone) and Nathaniel at the beginning and end.

The scene with

(sigh) Laurell, what's happened to you? Is putting out a book a year draining you too much? There's no excuse for this.

Micah is a novella dressed up to look like a full novel. The plotline is barely there, the characterizations are shallow, and everything just seems wooden & unlikable. The book is actually just as cheaply done as anything else, as the spacing is overdone in order to stretch out a 100-ish page novel out into 300-ish pages. If this had been published as a short story I wouldn

While my interest in the series is fading quickly, I really loved this book. Micah is probably my favorite man in a Anita's life, second only to Jean-Claude. I love the balance he brings, being so opposite of Anita, and I'm really glad that LKH wrote this book because while I've given up on the series for the most part, I was happy to read more about Micah. He kinda gets pushed aside for men that have been in Anita's life longer, and then pushed aside to make room for even more men and he's such ...more

Micah is the first novella in the Anita Blake series. It allows Anita to spend some alone time with Micah and also gets her a bit back to the zombie raising that seems to fade into the background in many of the recent books.

Anita is a lot to handle, in life, and especially in this book. Her fear of commitment comes to a head while away with Micah, forcing her to voice all her crazy "why would anyone love me?" thoughts. Somehow Anita becomes both needy and distant at the same time. Micah finally

Absolutely Loved this little novella didn't take me long and it was so typical of Anita. I loved it. A definite MUST read. Here is what Amazon.co.uk says about Micah:

From Publishers Weekly
Hamilton (Incubus Dreams) delivers a highly palatable portion of what makes her series heroine, federal marshal and vampire-hunter Anita Blake, a bestseller: equal portions hot sex and supernatural crime fighting—with a dollop of old-fashioned male-female melodrama—served up in a world where new were-animals h

With "Micah" I have now finished all the Anita Blake novels that are in paperback ("Danse Macabre" is still hardcover only). And …

… well, I’m probably exaggerating a bit with the ratings, but in contrast to "Incubus Dreams," this is … a masterpiece.

The book is 288 pages, the last 30-odd being a preview of Danse Macabre. And rather than the densely spaced tiny text, this is normal-sized text, double-spaced. It’s like r

I’m not really sure why I picked this book up, after the last few turned into nothing but porn I thought I’d give them a miss. But it was only €7, and I’ve read the others so I thought I may as well be a completioniest. But this doesn’t really seem to be the same as the others in the series. Its shorter, and there really isn’t any plot. I mean there is a storyline about raising some fella who died of a heart attack before he could testify to the FBI, but that isn’t what the book is about. It i ...more
