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.
In this little short story we get to see once again that Micah is way too good for Anita. He is such a nice guy, but way too easy to steamroll. And, Anita is the definition of a steamroller. A bitchy steamroller.

run away, Micah!

So, Micah travels out of town with Anita to do a zombie-raising, and they get to spend time alone for the first time. Of course this makes Anita nervous and bitchy. He even changes their motel room for a nice hotel, on his dime, and she acts like he just cut the bitch. F

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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've enjoyed this whole series, which is why it pains me to give this one only two stars. I noticed (before reading) that it had a low GR rating. But I thought that had to be wrong, because this is Anita Blake. Well to my total dismay....I think the GR rating is actually quite generous, because I can only give it 2 stars, (and I feel like that is being generous.)

I'm almost embarrassed to have people see that I read this. It was SO NOT MY KIND of book. I just have one question.....Where was the
This book had no ending. Hell, it didn't even have a beginning.

I thought I'll really like this one, expected to like it more than the others. But I guess people are right, the series is really going downhill. This story was short and pretty boring, I got used to more exciting stories.

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

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

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
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.

(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

I have to admit. I did not buy this novel. It was given to me. For that I'm thankful I didn't have to shell out money for it. I was expecting more about Micah and his backstory, instead I got backstory on how big his dick was. Sorry not interested. One thing that allowed me to give it two stars instead of one, is that, for a surprising change, there is a bit of a plot to this novel and it wasn't filled with pornographic beastiality sex scenes.

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
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
