You’re not bad, Andy, you’re just—in a bad situation. And it’s so totally not your fault, it should be a crime. In fact,” he said, warming to his subject, “it was a crime! You’re just doing the best you can. And you said yourself you only go after scumballs.
You’re—you’re doing a community service! Yeah, that’s it, they oughta give you a friggin ‘ medal.
Awesome, laugh-out-loud funny novella of the Undead series. Do not miss it. Originally posted on my blog on September 30, Apr 06, Cherie rated it really liked it. Four short stories by four great authors. Hamilton This is a condensed and slightly modified version of the first 13 chapters 95 pages from Incubus Dreamsthe 12th book in the Anita Blake series. It leaves out a lot of parts that don’t specifically have to do with the Ardeur, making slight modifications to the story to allow it to flow smoothly without the missing pieces.
Thus new readers who may have picked up this anthology as their first introduction to An Four short stories by four great authors. Thus new readers who may have picked up this anthology as their first introduction to Anita Blake may not be all that impressed since most of the Anita books have multiple plot lines going on simultaneously and a lot of the good stuff has been stripped from this story.
It all takes place during a single 24 hour period, focusing on Anita’s Ardeur. We also find out a great deal more about both Nathaniel and Damian. I found it okay reading only because I really love the Anita Blake series, however this particular story had nothing of danger or intrigue to it and seemed to drag on tediously in some spots.
You’re really better off just reading Incubus Dreams instead. It’s a funny, quirky tale of a girl vampire making her way to Minneapolis to pay homage to the new Queen. The writing style is drippy sarcasm and tongue-in-cheek humor. Overall, a fairly decent read.
Originally Human by Eileen Wilks This is the second Eileen Wilks short story I’ve read, and though I didn’t like it as much as the other Only Human found in the Lover Beware compilationit was still a pretty good read.
For those who appreciate romance more than danger and intrigue, unlike me, you might actually prefer this one over the other. Burning Moon by Rebecca York A blind psychic and a werewolf, whose paths are thrown together by destiny, and danger. Jun 19, Laura rated it really liked it Shelves: First off, I don’t care much for short stories.
Very, very few authors are good at developing characters, plot, setting, etc. Second off, I think it’s a rip-off for an author to write a series and then continue the story line in a short story in a book such as this, especially if that short story is going to be referred to in subsequent books.
I really appreciate the authors who add their short stories at the end of a novel–a lagniappe, as it were, to the audience. Ho First off, I don’t care much for short stories. However, I have to admit that I do use books such as Cravings to introduce me to the styles of authors within the same genre who I may not be familiar with.
I was already familiar with the work of Laurell K. Hamilton rip-off and Mary Janice Davidson good one. Laurell’s story begins the seduction of Nathaniel, something I’ve been waiting for which should have been part of a novel while Mary Janice’s story is an off-shoot of her Undead series, a favorite, irreverent vampire series. The two balanced nicely between the gothic prose of Laurell and the lightheartedness of Mary Janice.
Wilk’s story was a fun off-shoot. Is she playing with a new idea? If so, I’d like to explore more of that universe.
Cravingx story is a werewolf mystery. Why do so many werewolf laurelll have to do with bonded matings? When did that become part of the folklore? What does it say about modern Americans that we’re so enthralled with the idea?
All in all, Cravings is a fun read but I’m still ticked off with Laurell because her readers need to read it to continue the series. View all 4 comments. Mar 21, Carolyn F. Excellent for an anthology.
Laurell K Hamilton
Hamilton – I started reading this and I kept thinking that I’ve read this before. I searched for this title or series in the list of titles. So I kept reading, knowing what was coming next. Then I went back to the anthology’s blurb and saw this: No wonder, I have read it. I gave Incubus Dreams 5 stars, so I’ll give this 5 stars. I’ve read hami,ton one too.
I have a feeling I read this before I was on Goodreads. I liked this story. Thought it was funny and sweet.
Read it previously also. He’s a “something different” that fell in love with her from afar. Okay I read all of these stories but this one was worth a re-read. Serial killer after handicapped woman and a werewolf who is there to stop him. Sep 26, Kerry rated it it was amazing Shelves: For all that, she remains very much human at heart.
When a strange man literally falls at her feet, wounded and amnesiac, she takes him in and cares for him, physically and soon emotionally as well. She calls him Michael, and together they try to piece together who he is, where he has come from and who is chasing him. I loved this story. I loved the characters, the setup, the pacing, everything. It was a delight to read and I’ll be getting hold of my own copy as soon as possible. Molly is a delight and Michael is wonderful, knowledge and naive at the same time.
