Laurell Kaye Hamilton is an American fantasy and romance writer. Hamilton is generally considered one of the most influential writers in the history of paranormal fiction. According to her official website, her work contains a mix of “mystery, fantasy, magic, horror, and romance.” Detractors claim that gratuitous sex takes the place of plot or character development in her later novels. The Anita Blake series takes place in a parallel universe where supernatural creatures and powers are real and their presence is public knowledge. Supernatural beings are considered citizens with most of the rights of regular humans. Rather than follow up immediately on the various plotlines left open in the previous novel, Incubus Dreams, in Micah, Hamilton has written a much shorter work focusing primarily on Anita's relationships with one of her lovers. Anita must travel to Philadelphia on short notice to substitute for Larry Kirkland, who must remain in St. Louis because of complications in his wife Tammy's pregnancy. Also, Anita continues wrestle with her recent increase in power, first attempting to deal with the ardeur, a metaphysical effect that causes Anita to need to have sex every few hours, and second, wrestling with the vast increase in her own powers as a necromancer, which are now so powerful that her attempt to raise a single person threatens to raise every corpse in the cemetery… You can listen online to free English audiobook “Micah” by Laurell K.
